Paul?
Which Paul?

let me go see...

Do you mean Paul Louis, the puppetmaker?
I didn't know about him.

or am I missing something else related to the portrait sculptors?

Well, I remember I borrowed EVERY book on the topics of Crafts and Fine Arts 
in two different libraries when I was a teenager in college. I was 
fascinated by the books, especially the pictures. I read the tezxts to, most 
of it anyways, but (and there's the problem) I did not do the exercices nor 
the activities.
Not trained in their specific vague language, static images were not showing 
me some essential steps I knew I must be missing from somewhere. I felt like 
I was dumb or something, because why would they publish an instructional 
book with unlear info! Most people must be able too understand them i 
thought!
Took me years to realise a lot of books aren't adequate teaching tools, and 
even with those that are, some people learn isntantly through moving 
examples, seeing and hearing someone do it in front of them. I since then 
learned to understand techniques,  they cross-reference in my mind, and they 
interact. Hence my suddenly becoming a good cook, one day. The art medium 
properties were transferable to food stuff! I now learn quite easily with 
books, but it only became possible once I had acquired a sufficient 
knowledge base to deduct what was often missing from some of the steps.

I still prefer live workshops or Video lessons if the former is not 
available, the learning is immediate!

Mathieu,
I watched Paul on the Expert Video....wish it didn't have so many
commercials. My thought was, I wonder what Jim Henson would think of the
Internet possibilities? Things sure have changed.......when I was learning I
was in the library pouring over the books....LOL
