FAQWhat are your sculptures made of?
It's called Premo Sculpey. It is just my preferred brand of Sculpey. It is an oven bake, polymer clay. You can bake your pieces right in your home oven, so you really don't need any big expensive equipment! You can pick up Sculpey at most arts and craft stores. I get mine at Michaels and Joanns. I don't buy online so unfortunately I can't recommend any sites.
Why Premo Sculpey? Isn't it more expensive than normal Sculpey III?
It does cost more, but I usually stock up when there are sales. It is much stronger than regular Sculpey, and has a firmer consistency. Normal Sculpey tends to be too soft most of the time and really likes to hold fingerprints.
What about Super Sculpey?
I use that too on occasion. It is the strongest Sculpey, but only comes in that ugly beige color. I prefer to work with colored clays whenever possible. I only use Super Sculpey when I really need the extra strength on a delicate sculpture.
Ok, so why color

Dragon Sculpting Tutorial on YouTube!Alright guys here you go! I finally made a video of me making one of my dragons. The video is pretty long, about an hour, so watch it when you have some time to veg and watch some sculpting. I was going to just make it a time-lapse, but ended up narrating the whole thing, so instead you get to listen to me babble on about sculpting for an hour while I'm making the dragon. It was actually pretty fun to make, so I think I'll make a pony one in the near future as well!Dragon Sculpting Tutorial on YouTube!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Myself, VandorWolf and Valdrein got into London Saturday morning and after going through the obstacle course that is the International Visitors way through Gatwick airport we were greeted by a sleepy KellyJane who had woken up at 5am or something crazy like that to come get us at the airport (weloveyou). We spent the day with Parle in stinky plane clothes and with about 3 hours of sleep each which just made everything far more magical (except for the magic show we watched in Oxford Circus which was crap... I mean what kind of magici
The Updated ListBack again for the first time in years. Starting to sweep away some dust. I'll add some new plz accounts as time permits. Thank you to all who donated! The PLZ-Database will be ad free for the next year!The Updated List4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started this database when I first started dA over two years ago. I kept seeing these amazing emotes, but I could never remember their names when I wanted them. After putting together a very tiny list, I realized what an epic effort it would take to gather a really difinitive list. And I found out that there were plenty of other accounts that had better lists up already.
I gave up on collecting them, and nearly forgot about this account... Until I started having trouble finding some of the amazing new plz accounts on any of the listings. So I decided to update this site. :iconexcitedplz:
I hope it helps! :iconbummiesplz:

Adoptables, PricingMany people have asked me about this subject and while I did write a small 'Pricing' section in Adoptables, Basics for Adoptables Artists, the requests have not decreased so I decided to do a Journal dedicated to it.Adoptables, Pricing2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Pricing is a tricky art because you need to balance three things, the Price/Effort ratio, the Price/Design ratio and the General Market Price.
This is what you think you deserve to earn and the price that you would put on your adoptable if you didn't take into account the other two aspects. This takes into account mainly two things:
Time spent on the adoptable
Obviously, spending five hours on an adoptable instead of one makes the price rise. Many artists use a hourly wage to do their commission prices, so you should time yourself when you do an adoptable, at

UPDATE: Crafting CONTEST with Prizes! 14-03UPDATE- 14-03 With the deadline slowly coming into sight as we reach mid March (time flies D:! ), I would just like to give everyone a reminder for this contest.

First of all, to wash away any concerns about rule 9. No, you don't have to keep any WIPs hidden c: Feedback can be very important and I'm not against posting any progress pictures of your entry if you prefer so. The rule just means that I myself won't be posting any links to received entries in this journal until after the contest has ended. This is solely to prevent copying among contestants. So don't worry about that.
Rule 3. You ONLY have to ship your entry if it chosen as one of the winners. While the contest is still running a picture or two (or more, a video is also allowed) will do so your entry can be judged.
Next, I changed the prize for 3rd place winner by adding the choice of a custom magnet plush made of mink
