Tip of the Day: Creative vs Competitive thinkersTip of the day: The creative thinker has more potential than competitive thinker. For every competitive thinking winner, there are many competitive losers. With creative thinkers there is room for many winners. Competitive thinking encourages secrets. Creative thinking encourages sharing.Tip of the Day: Creative vs Competitive thinkers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So don't aim to be competitive unless it's with yourself. Instead aim to be creative!

Congratulations to JoannaInMiniLand!!
I will contact Moonbeam13 for the distribution of your prize, it may take a little bit.
Monthly Food Challenge
It's a new year, so we're changing things up a little bit. Starting in January, a three month premium membership* will be randomly drawn from the members that participate in the challenge. This also means that we will be extra picky with those that do not follow the rules.
Theme of the month
This month we want you to not create clay food, but create food related items!
Example: plates, cutlery, cake stand, blender, teacups, spatula. Make whatever you want as long as the items are primarily made of clay and that they fit the food context.

OUR MOVIE TRAILER...Here is the first trailer/teaser for the feature length movie we are currently producing.

Dia de los Muertos Artisan Crafts FeatureAs with the Halloween feature I made, I'm a bit late... but I still think that any time is time for good art!Dia de los Muertos Artisan Crafts Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Some of you already know that I'm mexican and proud, and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a very important tradition for me. While it is also celebrated in other parts of Latin America I am only familiar with the traditions we have here, so I'm really sorry for not being able to represent everyone But feel free to leave me a comment with your own traditions, I would love to read about them
In case anyone is interested some years ago I published a more or less detailed explanation on ofrendas (offerings) complete with photos. Also, I shall warn you that I consider myself a purist, and while I appreciate everyone's efforts to make art inspired by Dia de los Muertos there's some things that simply don't go with the spirit of this date, and I won't include them in this feature... for exa

I Did NOT Hack Chris Pollari's Account!It has come to my attention that a painter called Christopher Pollari has been making outrageous and controversial comments about me and, due to the nature of these claims, you might think I have hacked into his profile and/or blackmailed him in some way, but that's NOT true!I Did NOT Hack Chris Pollari's Account!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now for the really odd bit: this is all a GOOD thing!
Let me explain... I have been following Chris's work for a while, simply because it's beautiful, technically outstanding, inventive, lyrical, "cool", surreal, unique, etc. And I knew he was also following my stuff and had said a couple of complimentary things about my work and so on. I thought perhaps he was just being polite (as we Canucks tend to be) but imagine my surprise today when I just happened to stumble across a couple of replies he'd made to people who had commented on his latest WIP:
When someone complimented him (quite rightly) on how well this piece was coming along, Chris replied that his inspiration comes from "Huwman, the coole
Spring Contest - EndedThe Spring Contest has ended! We got a lot of really great entries. I noted all of the judges with the voting procedure, and once I calculate the scores for 1st and 2nd place I'll get the poll up for the Members' Choice.Spring Contest - Ended3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We finally got our contest info up, yaaay
I changed the theme to Spring, as I realized (durr) that some people may not celebrate Easter, so I figured something broader would be easier to work with. We also haven't had any entries yet! I changed the deadline to June 1st so you guys have an extra month
The contest theme is Spring! Do whatever you want with this theme (including Easter or any other spring holidays), as long as it's made with Polymer Clay. (Sculpture, miniature, jewelry, etc)
The deadline is June 1st, so you have over a month and a half.

Spirit Day Artisan CraftsToday, October 19th 2012 is Spirit Day! Spirit Day started on 2010 as a homage to the LGBT people that lost their lives or committed suicide due to bullying they suffered, and while the main focus is still on the LGBT community it's now a day to take actions against bullying. No one should have to endure bullying, ever.Spirit Day Artisan Crafts3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Moonbeam13 wrote an article about Spirit Day and listed some ways you can help, please give it a read!
I looked around and I found some great Artisan Crafts supporting Spirit Day, so here they are! I was really happy to find awesome people that even make crafts and donate the profits to LGBT charities If anyone knows of any more crafts please let me know so that I can add them to this collection, extra bonus if you upload something about Spirit Day

FIMO Soft lovin' :DI tried FIMO Soft for the first time. Oh my gosh!FIMO Soft lovin' :D3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I LOVE IT! :iconilavplz:
Considering I have tried only 2 other brands of clay, this is the best I've used!
The plastic scent is almost undetectable!
And I believe it's harder than the other clays I tried.
And I like how it sounds when it hits something solid.
It sounds sort of like porcelain.
The only thing I hate about it is it's a lot more expensive than my other clays. :iconrelievedplz:
Here's the price comparison:
100g of Klayola Polymer Clay - P130
56g of FIMO Soft Poly Clay - P170
Seriously! It's not even 100g. :iconcryforeverplz:
Anyway, I still like it.

I have a secret food affair with pizzaGrowing up, I hated pizza. Actually, I hated all junk food (hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, etc) and I still don't eat junk food... except for pizza. At about 16 years old I started liking pizza and I've LOVED it since, it has all the things I love: bread, tomato, cheese, seasonings, and veggies. But never meat, and I guess the reason I hated it before was because I didn't know it could be prepared without meat. I never get tired of it, and every time there's a chance to eat it, I do! Whenever there's leftovers I will eat them for breakfast, dinner, coffee break, whatever it takes to finish it all. I usually joke saying that I'm making up for all the years I wasted without eating it, all the pizza forever lost.I have a secret food affair with pizza2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

$1 Polymer Clay Sale! + 30% off clay online!Hey everyone! Guess what time it issss... it's CLAY SALE time! Whoop whoop. (the best time of the year ever.)$1 Polymer Clay Sale! + 30% off clay online!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This week both Michael's Arts and Crafts and Hobby Lobby have delicious polymer clay sales. Michael's wins this week though, all polymer clay packs in store are only $1 each! This covers all brands: Sculpey III, Premo, FIMO, and Craft Smart. Personally I suggest you nab Premo and FIMO since these are better clays, but I like to grab a little bit of everything. You can see my haul of clay here. They're also offering a 50% off any regular price item coupon so I got a box of Super Sculpey for about $6.
Call your local Michael's store and see if they're running this sale. It should be good until Saturday, but again. Call and make sure, as I can't speak for every store. Last time they ran a sale like this a similar one was running up in Canada as well, so if you're way up north then give your local shop a call and see if they're running a
