Food. Polymer clay food. There's a strange fascination between polymer clay crafters to make food, if you ask many of us won't even be able to explain what's so addictive about making fake food. Some of it is crafted for doll houses and doll props, some people make beautiful jewelry with food, but some just make it because it's so incredibly fun.

Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer ClaySmoothing, Sanding, and Buffing polymer clay is definately something that you don't hear a lot about in the younger polymer clay community, but it certainly does make your pieces look a lot better in the long run. If you smooth, sand, and buff your clay AND add a layer of varnish - watch out, your pieces will look as bright, beautiful and glossy as a piece of delicious candy.Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer Clay6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever noticed that translucent clay really isn't THAT translucent? Well, if you smooth, sand, and buff it - you'll be seeing differently! It really DOES get see-through!
Give these tips a try, and although I can't guarantee that you will get it right the first time, practice makes perfect, and sometimes new techniques take a little getting used to before you find a way that works the best for you.
Smoothing your clay is what you do to your clay before you bake it. Running your fingers along the surface and smoothing out bumps and impurities can work wonders on a piece and give it a ve

Akili's MLP Coins FAQ -updated July 2013Akili's MLP Coins FAQ -updated July 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
These two pictures are of ONE coin! One side is gold-colored, featuring Celestia, and the other side is silver-colored featuring Luna.
The pictures above are from the first run.
Here's a VIDEO for proof of the two sides!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HB9HOsXirs
(He pronounces my name, wrong, but that's understandable.)
Run 2 is featured below. The difference is the edge text. In the first run, there's no side text.
These are gorgeous! How big are they?/What are they made of?
The coin is 2 inches in diameter, and approximately 3.5mm thick. It's a nice and heavy 2.2 oz brass coin plated on one side with nickel and (A finite amount of) 14kt gold on the other.
Why is Luna's side nickel and not actual silver?
Because actual silver is only available in antique finish. It was either have both sides be shiny, or both sides be made of precious metal with antique finish. The shiny

OC Contest 2 (Closed) EDIT: I'll post the results a week after the deadline, on August 10th or 11th probablyOC Contest 2 (Closed)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: Contest is closed (just waiting for one or two entries more)! I'll note to the judges soon and we'll choose the winners Thank you for everyone for participating! I loved to see my characters drawn by you, they were so cute Everyone did great job. I wish I had more prizes to give
While you're waiting for the results, check out the entries on this journal ^^ Maybe you'll find some art to fav or people to watch!
I wanted to see which of the characters would be most popular Here are the results (if I counted right)

I'll post the other entries so you all can see too. They're all so wonderful! adajfnkalg
I'll probably have the results sometime after New Year.
Deadline extended!! Now ends December 16th at midnight!
The deadline is tomorrow at midnight. I have two wonderful entries at the moment
I'm going to make a list of those who haven't drawn an entry. This does not, by any means, force you to make an entry.
I'm doing this to ask a question: Do you want the deadline extended?
So I'm going to be making a comic soon. I have two main characters, both were adopts. I need a third main character, so I thought, why not have someone else design it too! I think it'll be interesting, considering I didn't originally make the character designs, maybe you'll feel more connected with the comic?

Liquid Clay 101Liquid Clay comes in many forms, but many of us just refer to all brands as TLS, which actually stands for "Translucent Liquid Sculpey". In actuality, Sculpey certainly isn't the only one who makes Liquid Clay. Fimo makes a Liquid Clay called "Fimo Decorating Gel", and Kato makes a Liquid Clay called "Clear Liquid Polyclay".Liquid Clay 1016 years ago in Art Features More Like This
From my experience, you can use a WIDE variety of things with your Liquid Clay. If you want it to be Translucent though, I suggest using Fimo Decorating Gel. It is EXTREMELY translucent and makes the BEST sauces and syrups and anything else that needs to be coloured but still still transparent. TLS will leave you with an opaque mixture, so it's good for things that don't need to be see-through like chocolate sauce, slime, blood, icing, etc.
For colouring, things like Oil Paints, shaved Oil Pastels, Chalk Pastel/Charcoal, Kneaded Polymer Clay, Eyeshadow, Metallic Powders, Alcohol-Based Ink, Dry Pigment Powder, etc...
DON'T use Acrylic Paint. It does BAD things when

WOW! Okay this has taken me forever to look through. So many fantastic entries I'm actually blown away by the amount of love and dedication put into all of these pieces. Some of you guys really dug deep into the meaning of the song, and even though it wasn't a requirement at all, reading all of the meaning that you guys pulled out of it was so unique and interesting.
This is really the true 'art' in art, seeing how even though we all hear the same thing, we all interpreted it in different ways. Different lyrics stuck out for different people and some of the same lyrics were taken in different ways.
Exactly what I had hoped for when I first made this contest, you should all be very proud of yourselves,
There is always a time to Feature!When i started deviantart in 2011 i was so carefree , tensionless, used to be a like a free hawk , but now i don't know where to start where to end 100s of new artist arrive on DA everyone of them want points, features ,exposure, love, support, respect, fame well i would compliment Women of Deviantart are much higher in aspects as compare to ladies of Facebook with all due respect to plastic makeups , this site gives you natural men and women and there raw talents.

Also for all of this awesomeness, I'm holding a contest! The contest is Blood month! (IDK a random month, different OC next time)
For this month I will be holding a contest on my fav and most fangirled OC Blood,
There is no true theme. It can about anything you want, heck I'll even let you pair him with your OC if you love him that much, and trust me, a lot do.
Just a few things is that he almost never smiles. He also has 7 piercings, maybe 8. Two on both his cat ears, a fish bone on his tail, one on his hidden eyebrow, and one on his lower lip.
Contest will end on April the 7th. (The day of Blood's birthday)

My Progression as an Animator at DisneyA friend of mine is writing a book on animation fundamentals and asked me for a "paragraph or two" (which I can't do) on the subject of timing. I considered it and ended up writing about my progression of learning while a Disney animator in the traditional animation days. It was good therapy for me to really think this through and consider the order of things. I hope you enjoy it. "Like" or "fav" this so others will see it too.

My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft
Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.
When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating. 10 years? That's FOREVER! I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years! I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so-
