The best page that we have at the moment is This is a page of all of the symbols in the ISWA broken up into categories, groups, and then individual symbols. There is only a short description of each symbol. It isn't the best, but it is thorough.

Now that you mentioned about the mouth movements, I looked at it more closely. I think you want to have the finishing mouth to be protruded open mouth rather than a slightly tighter open mouth, which makes the wrinkles that the lines around represent. In that case, I think the final mouth should be this:

I did a little playing with overlapping the heads and noticed that the overlapping couldn't occur very well without covering up the above mouthing symbol. Then I remembered that there were "topless" head circles, so I decided to try it out and see what happens. What do you all think about this?

Hi Everyone,

I (think) I attached a writing of the sign "finish" with vertical heads.  I like the
simplicity of showing the initial handshape with movement only.  What do you

Also, is there a lesson page that describes or shows pictures of all the face and
mouth symbols available in the SignMaker on SignPuddle?  I'm not sure what some
of the symbols represent.  There is an older, online set of written lessons I have
found, but it doesn't include everything available in the SignMaker pallette.
