Free Pokemon Pattern list!I thought I would try to compose a list of different Pokemon patterns you can find. I get request for patterns all the time, but usually there are great ones already available! I thought I would try to get them all down for you in as much of an organized fashion as I can at this late at night...Free Pokemon Pattern list!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I haven't used most of these for myself, so I don't know if these are all good.
I'm sure these aren't the only patterns available, but these were the ones I that I happen to find. If you know of more then let me know so I can add it! And this journal will constantly be updated.
Always make sure to give credit to the pattern maker, and unless it states otherwise, never use these patterns for profit! They're here for people to use for themselves or as gifts, not to make money.

An easy wire-wrapping tutorialWhen it comes to making jewerly, especially silver, wire-wrapping technique is one of the nicest consider the availability and costs of the materials (it definitely beats Art Clay Silver at these points). But before you get silver wire and start making such fabulous pieces like the ones I've featured in the end, it's good to take your first steps using something cheaper - and here comes the copper wire - and making something simpler, to get used to this lovely technique.An easy wire-wrapping tutorial1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This tutorial I originally posted on my blog a couple of months ago and I thought about sharing it also here.
This is what we're planning to get.
First of all, we need stones - the more regular they are, the better. No need to think about any super duper expensive ones now (: I collected most of them in my garden, there are also parts of my old broken earrings and a small glass ball. We also need sharp pincers, round pincers and a wire, 0.6mm or thicker, 40cm at least. Copper wire i

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.

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 1015 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

Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty EditionToday, March 1st is Self-Harm Awareness Day, but I think it deserves more than a day. I won't say much about it because other people have already published wonderful articles about it, I recommend that you read NicBelroque's Fears vs Dreams and Beccalicious' Recovery, both contain a lot of wonderful information and share touching experiences.Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty Edition1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
What I can tell you is this: self-harm is a problem that is often not recognized. It takes many forms, forms that are not recognized even by the person committing it. Self-harm is always a problem, even if you think you have it under control or that it's not serious, it is. If you are currently committing any form of self-harm, or if you suspect anyone else is, reach out for help. Both articles contain links and resources to guide you, and I'm here to talk :iconheartorangeplz:.

Attention, don't give away your work!If possible please this news article so that more people can see it and be wary, thank you!Attention, don't give away your work!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This week I received messages from two different people (through Etsy and Storenvy) offering to make a review of my work. They splattered huge statics, like having millions of instagram followers, popularity, or having done it before and making people famous. Of course, their generosity was conditioned by me agreeing to send them some of my work for free. While I don't object the concept of reviewing someone's work, I worry that this has become a popular way of scamming artisan crafters to give away their work for free with promises of exposure and increasing their sales. I wanted to write this journal to tell everyone to be careful, specially if you're just starting your business and struggling to get noticed, it may sound tempting but you should never give away your hard work!
One of them was even more blunt and said that he could write a positive review of my work just by

Colouring Book Pre-orders OPEN [UPDATE]Colouring book Pre-orders openColouring Book Pre-orders OPEN [UPDATE]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
UPDATE: 03/03/2011: Hi all and thanks for all of your patience~! I have a bit of news of the colouring book that isn't necessarily bad, I just need to change it a bit.
The tutorial that was to be included within the book is now being included as a pamphlet, rather than pages in the book. The tutorial is still in full colour and the same size as the book as originally planned, so you're getting exactly what you paid for, it just isn't stapled within the book pages.
The reason for this is because when I get a colour book printed, for example, say I have a 60 colour book and only 5 pages of colour and the rest are in black and white. Even if only 5 pages are in colour, I still have to pay for a 60 page full colour book. And that is *very* pricey.
I hope this is not too much of an inconvenience to everyone.
The books will be sent out by the 10th hopefully! Thank you everyone!
UPDATE 19/02/2012: Thank you everyone for your support so far!! I will be tak
Camera Raw Tools for PhotographersCamera Raw Tools for Photographers1 month ago in Art Features More Like This
This article aims to highlight some of the more useful tools that you can find in Camera RAW. It's doesn't cover everything, and purely focuses on the useful things for the image used. But hopefully it will give a bit of insight and maybe even highlight something that you haven't used before...
This tool will save your life. Honestly. I'm not exaggerating! Whilst it is possible to 'over' soften an image, most of the time all that's required to reduce a little noise is to up the luminance slider just a little bit.
Auto White Balance
Quite often , the white balance can be the only thing that upsets an image. In the example that I'm using, the day was fairly dull but the whiteness of the sky was quite overpowering. Therefore the clarity of the image turned out to be weaker than I wanted and the light 'harsher.' Using 'Auto White Balance' gave it an Autumnal sort of feel and a tinge of orang

Advice for Aspiring Artists.Don't stop your aspirations at your Favorite artist. Aspire to be the best, Aspire to be better than your Favorite Artist.Advice for Aspiring Artists.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Take all your frustrations, doubts, negativity and use them as fuel for the fire. Tell your self you'll prove your doubts wrong. You might not be good enough today but you can do it someday. That's the kind of attitude I've always had. You don't think I can do it! Well I'll show you someday! you'll see.
If you think you can't draw realistically, but want to be good at Anime then... STOP RIGHT THERE! Every good artist whether it be anime, cartoons, anything will be able to draw Realistically to at least a degree. Not what people want to hear but it's true. But it doesn't mean you have to give up what you love, take what you learn and apply to what you love.
(´･ω･`) I actually don't feel like I can be taken seriously when I say that because of they way I draw... But it's what I really do think. Well I'll just have to get
