- 100% pure acetone (found in the beauty supply sections) make sure it's colorless, and cotton swabs. I used to use Windsor & Newton Brush cleaner, which worked okay, but acetone is less expensive and wiped everything off easier. Do not allow it to drip onto hard plastics (such as the body) as it will melt the plastic and release fumes.
- Cling wrap, painter's tape, and masking tape; these are for wrapping your doll's hair and body to protect it from being sprayed with sealant or getting scratched/dirty. If sealant sprays onto the dolls hair, the hair becomes coated in dried, white, sealant that is difficult to remove.

They are commonly known as Gypsies, but that moniker conjures up the trite stereotypes and pervasive misconceptions commonly associated with a people whose culture and history are actually profound and nuanced. A vociferously unassimilable people, they are European (and increasingly American) urban nomads in constant migration, refusing to alter their culture in any way necessary for joining the modern wor

Twins: “Old Souls” at Birth?
Look into the eyes of these photographed twins in this special gallery.
Twins always seem to possess an “old souls” essence in their characters, probably because of the several profound aspects of “twindom” that the rest of us will never have to contemplate, let alone live through on a daily basis. Can you imagine having an almost perfect mirror image of yourself, living alongside you every day? Some reflexive

It is not quite clear how the guinea pig got its name. They hail from South America where they were first domesticated for human consumption by the tribes of the Andes in 5000 B.C. Yes, guinea pigs were food before they were pets and continue to be an important part of the diet especially in Peru and Bolivia. It wasn’t until the 16th century that the guinea pig became popular as an exotic pet among the elite when traders brought the a

Every Day is Pancake Day
There seem to be quite a lot of discrepancies in determining the actual date of National Pancake Day.
Internet sources list it variously as February 25 or 26 or September 26. For Christians observing Lenten rituals, “Shrove Tuesday” (on February 17 this year) is “Pancake Day,” the day you gorge on before beginning your fast. The IHOP (International House of Pancakes) should be a determining authority, but their advertising

The main difference between the Western and Chinese zodiacs is that in the West, each month of the year has its own sign, whereas the Chinese zodiac is made up of 12–year cycles, with each year having its own sign.
The date of the Chinese New Year differs annually, reflecting the second new moon after the winter solace, (falling usually between January 21 and February 19).

When people think of England, they often forget one very important and yet tiny factor. Around 7,000 years ago a small diamond shaped piece of land broke off and became a popular tourist destination and home to many. The Isle of Wight is the largest and second most populous island of England and is located in the English Channel just off the coast of Hampshire. It enjoys a variable climate, experiencing the wet and windy conditio
PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?You're browsing deviantART or are simply checking your message centre and find a wonderful art piece. You want to suggest it as a Daily Deviation because you believe it truly deserves to be seen by the community as a whole. But how to properly suggest a DD? This article will explain the process.PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Things to check before sending a suggestion:
The first thing you need to check is if the artist has been given a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months. Volunteers cannot feature anyone who's had a DD in that period of time with no exceptions, as this has been hard-coded into deviantART's system.
"But how do I check an artist's Daily Deviations?" you may ask. Simply go to their gallery, click browse and scroll down. If they have any DDs, you'll be able to find a link to them at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, you can add "/dds" after their profile url and click enter on your browser's address bar.

Six years later, God supposedly spoke to Patrick, telling him a boat awaited him on the coast to take him back home. The escape was successful.

Just happy to be at my easel painting
Whether they be a baker, painter, or candlestick maker, every artisan has their own set of tools.
The strategic slice of a chef’s knife, the perfectly placed stroke of a painter’s brush, the forensic eye of a camera lens, each bends to the will of their master. But the artist must first learn to tame each of their tools before they will do their bidding.
Mexico's Crafty FeatureSeptember 16th celebrates the start of Mexico's fight for independence, 205 years ago. It's our most important national holiday (not Cinco de Mayo ), so I wanted to make a special feature for my country. Mexico is a beautiful country, full of honest and hardworking people, sadly vilified by the media even within our own borders. Our culture is bold and colorful, the food is delicious and baroque, there's a lot to love about Mexico! I want to share with you a few Artisan Crafts that I believe represent Mexico in the most authentic way, not the stereotyped way in which it's often pictured. I hope that you'll enjoy this taste of Mexico.Mexico's Crafty Feature2 months ago in Art Features More Like This

In this tutorial I'll be showing you how to digitize using PE Design Lite!
This software is best used in conjunction with an image editing program like Adobe Photoshop. I've found that PE Design Lite is quite finicky with colors so you need a high quality vector image of the design you want to digitize.
So the first thing you need to do is find or create your design. Once you have a good quality image open your software.
Note: PE Design Lite has only the most basic of functions. For more embroidery options you'll need to buy/download more advanced digitizing programs.
Step 1: Open software
Step 2: Import your image
This is the file I want to digitize:
Step 3: Click the autodigitize button and the color grid will pop up.
