I was wondering about wetting the stones too.  Wash off any dust that may reduce friction?

Heteromorphs
Extraordinary day yesterday. In between our pop up monster workshops in the morning and an inspiring evening at the Eastville Project Space in Yeovil​, we were very lucky to spend the afternoon with Wolfgang Grulke​ in his magical museum. The result of a lifetime's passion for Heteromorphs, Wolfgang's collection is absolutely stunning. 
In between Heteromporphs, Ammonites, Hadrosaur and Elephant Bird eggs, with the odd Ichthyosaur and Crinoid for good measure, are hundreds of beautifully prepared fossils from all around the world. Quite the best collection I've ever seen. In this one vast specimen from Morocco are numerous separate species. Incredible.

Fantastic fun in Andover Museum yesterday. Just setting up for another day of Monster Pop Up Workshops in Sherborne, then a visit to the best collection of Heteromorphs in the world, followed by an artist talk by Maria Mochnacz at the new Eastville Project Space in Yeovil.  
Interesting day!

It's a strange thing to look at your love, mid way through her roaring guitar solo, a crowd of insane dancers briefly parted.

What an extraordinary evening at the intriguing Eastville Project Space in Yeovil. 
The disarming, funny and modest photographer, director and stylist, Maria Mochnacz gave an intimate and utterly fascinating talk about her work and inspirations. Her body of work, notably but not exclusively that with PJ Harvey, is truly humbling.
She was so lovely, I can't stop smiling.

Introduction
Artist, Author, Illustrator, Designer, Paper Engineer. 
I post my work live on G+. 
Most of it. A great deal of work in the last year has been secret, you'll have to wait for that later this year!
I started 'working out loud' on google+ in July 2011 and it's been a very interesting journey. Being an artist and sharing my illustration and art on google+ is a unique experience. Much of work that I have created in that time has in some way been crowd-edited by the experience of meeting so many diverse, thoughtful and intelligent people here. Their comments, company, humor and the glimpses into their worlds and disciplines have been incredible gifts. 
On my profile I post my about my work, art and design, the world of paper and pop up books, children's books and working with children in schools and libraries, music, gardens and landscape. Dog and daughter, sons and sunshine! 

2014 has seen the 20th Anniversary republishing of my bestselling children's dinosaur books by Random House, an artist residency at Seven Stories in Newcastle, appearences at literary, music and children's festivals, in schools and libraries all over the UK, it's been great fun! Not to forget the creation of a 3 metre high Dinosaur Roar mouth!
Much of that is on my G+ profile and more here Paul Stickland Blog

StrangeStore on Google+ is where I post all my new products, promotional experiments and links to my various stores and goods!

Principally known for my work as the creator, author, illustrator and designer of children's picture and pop up books, including many bestselling books, such as:
 - Dinosaur Roar - The Christmas Bear - Ten Terrible Dinosaurs - Big Dig - Truck Jam - One Bear One Dog - Dinosaurs Galore - A Number of Dinosaurs...
2014 sees the long awaited republishing of Dinosaur Roar! and Ten Terrible Dinosaurs by Random House. This is part of a very exciting collaboration with Nurture Rights and The Natural History Museum in London. 

This has become a wonderful part of my job and probably my favourite. I've been working with children of all ages for the last twenty years sharing my passion for children's literature and creativity via the medium of children's picture and pop up books, giving author visits and pop-up book workshops for children of all ages and abilities, including those with special needs. 
It's a great privilege and I've had the pleasure to meet and work with children in schools, libraries and at many of the major UK Literary Festivals and Music Festivals, in Europe and the US. I often post about this fascinating part of my life on G+ and have had so much very positive feedback. 
If you would like to enquire about an Author Event or Pop Up Workshop, please visit the Paul Stickland Author Visits and Workshops page on my website, or contact me directly here.

I live in rural south west of England in Sherborne, Dorset, England with the beautiful bookseller and sensational songwriter  +Helen Stickland , our lovely little daughter Tabitha and my four wonderful sons, Felix, Kit, Gus, Arthur. 
My eldest wonderful and talented son Rowan Stickland lives in Totnes, Devon.
