Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing BasicsToday I'd like to take a moment to talk about airbrushing basics. I feel that it is an art form that is very under represented here on deviantART and perhaps with a little education on it, more people might become interested in airbrushing.Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing Basics1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Airbrushing can be used for various different things, from body art, to painting model cars and planes, to painting sculptures, to painting automotives, T-shirts, canvas, even cake decorating, etc etc, the possibilities with airbrushing are pretty limitless and as such can be a wonderful art form to get familiar with and perhaps even utilize yourself. Oh, and did I also mention that airbrushing is fun?
Try it, you'll like it!
Airbrushes come with a few different features which I've outlined below to help make an educated guess on what type would best suit you if this is something you're interested in trying.

:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder
While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall. It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.
But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.
I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.
Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph

"So now you know the reaction of what sulphur dioxide does to skin. Most enemies use this sort of acid to stop you attacking them which is 80% chance of them doing so." You said as the kids noted it down.
"Miss. What does H2O mean?" A thirteen year old boy said. Lance. His powers were similar to a snake..like a cobra. If you attack him one bite he could kill you.
"Excellent question Lance. Does anyone know what H2O is?"
"Water.." Someone said. Oh no...
"Y-yes thank you Logan." You said looking towards the door. He had his arm folded and was leaning against the door. He smirked..

'Does Miss (Y/n) like him too?'

"Baaabe? You here?" You said, looking in the leaving room. Huh? You thought. Steve texted you, well tried saying that he dropped Bucky off at the house 1 hour ago. You stretched and went upstairs, you yawned and saw Bucky reading a book.
"Hey babe." You said falling on the bed next to him.
"Waaatchu reading?" You said putting your hand on your head giving you support.
"Nothing." He said.
"Alrighty, okay I'm going to change and brush my teeth and join you in bed?" He nodded. You quickly got your shorts and tank top and went to the bathroom, you brushed your teeth but your hair down from the bun you previously had, you brushed out the knots and saw the necklace that Bucky gave you. It was a love heart with an arrow that goes through, you smiled.

You pouted and put your hands on your hips thinking of what to wear. You groaned as you couldn't find anything. You text Pepper and Natasha saying you have a fashion crisis. Then the door bell went, you wondered who it could be. You opened it and...
"FASHION CRISIS, HERE IS PEPPER POTS AND NATASHA TO SAVE THE DAY." Pepper said running in with bags, you blinked a couple of times and saw Natasha with a lot of bags.
"I hate you." You laughed.
"I know Tasha."
The party is in 2 hours and you don't know what to wear.
"ERGH! Why does Tony have to do this." You huffed and fell on the bed.
"Come on sweetie, just one more dress." Pepper sai

It's really easy! All you have to do is select the appropriate Forum you'd like to post your thread to and scroll down a little!
