Polymer Clay Brands Polymer clay BrandsPolymer Clay Brands1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
many people who start working with polymer clay usually do so by taking the brand they have available in a store around the corner.
For me that was Fimo, which is still a regular in my polymer clay box. I have tried several brands, though not all, thats why I borrow (with permission!) from other nice people which are credited in the bottom and in the intro, to give you a full picture. All the product pictures are copyright of the respective brands which I have written permission to use. (And got free samples from Fimo & Pardo just for asking! Thanks so much once more)
Did anyone of you know that Fimos goes back a long time and is probably the first polymer clay? It was originally invented by the famous doll maker Käthe Kruse. When in 1939 the mass didn't turn out to be used the way for doll heads as she wanted, her daughter Sophie dabbled on with it. It took another 15 years until she did perfectione

Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artistHey guys. I've written about copyright law in the past, but there are some things I just.. never thought to mention. However now that Sarah and I are working together, we're dealing with several types of art theft at once. Everything from the recast dolls situation (where someone buys your doll, makes casts of it, then sells it to the public. Yes this is illegal, more on that later), to someone submitting my art to a game company as their own for a job. In many cases we are dealing with ignorance, so I thought I would clarify a few things.Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artist2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is going to take a while.
The Recast Situation
There is a new trend in the ball jointed doll industry, where people are taking dolls and sending them to 'professional recasters'. These people then make a mold of someone's doll, and recast it. They then proceed to sell the doll to their customers. The artist receives no compensation for this, nor is allowed to even have a say in anything from the quality of the resin, to the

I offered to help out with project educate and set up a big beading 101 for all the beading beginners out there, it might turn out to be an interesting article for intermediates too. Little did I know then, what a HUGE task I had ahead of me .. I probably would have run and hide if I would have.
Or yelled: "Bead me up, Scotty"
I want to explain a lot of the basics, the tools, the must haves, the should haves, the bead types and all those curious abbreviations used with beading which seem to be a language of their own. I remember well how lost I was in the beginning when there came up words like melon beads, ICL, marea, monofilament... what the heck? There where so many different threads and even more beads and all those strange aught sizing instead of mm (millimetre) (nowadays I need a table to convert aught to mm )
This is my brain (and probably most every beader's brain) on beads:

I am so tired - I had to wake up at 5 AM, because I had my driving lesson and also exams.
I passed the computer test weeks ago, I got 100% of right answers.
I also passed the exam of technical knowledge weeks ago.
But I failed to pass practical driving exam for two times! they say that only 20% people pass all three exams for the first attempt. But my second attempt was absolutely screwed up - I was so depressed about it, feeling so ashamed.
But today I passed also this part, so I will have a driving licence soon

Fur and otherToday, one person asked me by Etsy, why in my photos I use real fur. I think it is appropriate to respond publicly, if anyone else is important.Fur and other2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love the fur and other animal materials, but I am against the commercial production of fur. All the fur that I have is the gifts and waste. This is part of the animals that died of natural causes or killed by necessity, not for their fur.
I'm against killing animals for decorations or entertainment, but if the animal is dead, I think that we need use his body as much as possible.
I think it is possible to use materials of animal origin, which are a by-product (if the animal is killed for their meat, but may also use the skin)
I'm not a vegetarian, but I watch with great interest for the work on the creation of artificial meat. I hope that in the future for meat and skins will contain technology that is not going to suffer real animals. This route seems to me more promising than a complete rejection of animal products.
I am attitude very nega

Learning to draw with Loomis: art book featureIf you want to become a better artist and you find that your own "How to draw" books, or the tutorials on the internet are lacking in scope, then this article is for you. I'm going to talk to you about some of the best books on making art that have ever been written - and that's not an exaggeration.Learning to draw with Loomis: art book feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
These books were written around the WWII-era by a man called William Andrew Loomis. He was a very accomplished and widely published artist at the time, but what he's currently more well-known for is a series of art books he created during that time. These books have stood the test of time and their contents are still commonly used and recommended to art students of a wide range of skill levels, and if you're looking to improve your drawing skills, particulary faces and the human body, these books are a good place to start.
The major strength of his books is that they're not a step-by-step guide or tutorial on how to draw a specific picture, portrait or pose. Many art books fall into this ca

I am still so sleepy I go to bed at 9 PM these days - so embarrasing
I also had to visit a doctor today (she wanted to check my blood and such, because she did not like my weight *is very ashamed*), nurse took my blood, which is always a horror for me. Well, I hope they would not find any awful illness like diabetes or so, I am scared
I came to the room and I was like: ,,Hello! I mean... you do not need to test my blood. I know why I am fat! It is because I used to eat only two big and quite unhealthy meals a day and I did not move at all! I started having 5 meals a day and I exercise - and I lost weight immediately!"
And the nurse smiled and said: ,,oh, you are afraid of a needle, are not you?"
Me: ,,Uh huh..."
And a mystery: after two months, I have almost the same weight, I lost only few kilos but in fact, I am absolutely sure I am much less fat. I really can wear clothes which were too small two months ago. I am really 100% sure I am less fat. But why doe

Today I show you some photos of the animals, but I want to share also photos of Christmas gifts I made for my friends.

Red fox symbolises me and finally, as Allerlei loves my cookies, I made a special portion for her - cookies with chocolate and nuts in a form of a squirrel
Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!Years and years ago, at the beginning of my illustration career, a veteran illustrator got mad at me, and at a number of my colleagues, for charging too little. We all protested loudly. "But, dude," we said, "we are not veterans like you, with years of experience and stunning portfolios to back us up. We are newbies, and we need to eat, too, so we'll take what we can get. We're not in direct competition with you, so why do you care?" Then, we added, with great smugness, "Oh, and our rates are the current industry standard, so pthbbbbbt!"Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

We're certainly not getting what he did, at the height of his. And we did this to ourselves. Oh, sure, we're not solely re
