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.

From time to time polymer clay neophytes ask me what tips I can give them to help them improve their craft. In my previous article I already wrote about what kind of clays, tools and techniques can be used, but materials can only take you so far. Although they are helpful, I've seen people creating masterpieces with nothing but homemade clay and practically no tools. After all, clay, tools and resources don't create a masterpiece, you do.
I realized eventually that there's three invaluable and essential things you'll need if you want to succeed as a polymer clay artist. In fact, I think they're needed for all forms of a
Introduction to Polymer ClayPolymer clay is a modeling compound consisting mainly of polymer polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and plasticizes to make it pliable. As you can see it's easy to define polymer clay, but there's no possible way to describe all the variety of things that can be achieved with it.Introduction to Polymer Clay4 years ago in Art Features More Like This

I have a sad confession. To me from me. UPDATEDOver the last few weeks I realised something really sad. I stopped drawing warrior cat art because I became embarrassed of it. I really really really enjoyed it, but through the process of going to university, despite doing an animation course and drawing children's stuff every day, I was embarrassed to keep illustrating scenes from a series of books that I loved and really sparked my imagination. I'll explain why.I have a sad confession. To me from me. UPDATED1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The problem with social media is that people you know in real life start following you on your accounts on various websites. Pinterest, tumblr, twitter, facebook, youtube, deviantart... the list goes on.
Although, fun at first (oh wow, my real life friend is on here too, this is sooo cool we can do art things together!), it really stifled my creativity. With every person that started to follow me, it was like an increasing weight on me to perform. Recently lots of people I know have started fo

Also posted here at CRLiterature.
For my 15th literature competition I want to challenge people to do something that may benefit their writing, so I present to you all the Devil's in the Detail Competition.
I'm challenging you to think of something that a person has to do at least once a month, but it could be every minute of every day, and then put it in a fantasy environment.
Brushing your teeth if you are a vampire
Walking your dog onboard a space station
Having a prostate exam when everyone else on the planet is a zombie. (eek!)
The challenge is really to focus your mind on how your characters behave and interact with their environments and how the environment being different than yours (the writers) can affect how they do those things. Hopefully this will

( For the time being until I graduate and start working for Amvets, I do live with my dad. )
So, I went to with my dad to Walmart today to buy new lights for my sisters bedroom. The whole way there I could tell he was in a bad mood, so I kept to myself. While at Walmart, his attitude only seemed to get worse. ( I still have yet to figure out why he was so upset. )
We finally found the right lights that we needed, and went to find an express lain. Most were closed, but two were still open with people in line. My dad starts grumbling about this ( acting like he wants to get the hell out of dodge as quick as possible. )
I am standing right behind him and we get behind two other people with one of them almost finished checking out. But suddenly, my dad starts to b

My deviantART storythis is a bit ironic considering my dA birthday was just two days ago lol. since the fifth of this month, i've been here for 5 years. it doesn't seem like that long, probably because i've had so much fun. i didn't have a drawing tablet when i started here, so i made traditional art to begin with, like thisMy deviantART story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
needless to say i've improved a lot since then. i got my tablet and started practicing with digital drawing, and i made stuff like this:
oh god, that hurts so much to look at now xD
during my stay on dA, i also entered college as an art major, and my art classes certainly improved my artistic ability : ) i began to focus more on things like anatomy. i also wanted my work to look a certain way, less immature i guess. i practiced even more with my drawing tablet, and in class, and began making work like this: i also joined the group, Clansofthenorth where i interacted a lot

First YearToday marks my first year on dA (with this account) and my first year making clay miniatures.First Year3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a fantastic year. I've learned so much and progressed better than I thought I would. I've met some of the coolest people since I've started this, both on here and Tumblr. I doubt I would have kept going if it wasn't for you guys. You push me to improve and test new waters. So, truly, I appreciate all of my watchers and followers - from the comments of support to critiques and suggestions to improve. I wouldn't be where I am today without you all. c:

On schedule for Monday! Just need to finish a few more ponds so I can do a batch of resin today.
Wanted to drop a quick note here that I am working on an Altoids tin specifically for eBay. It's going to be my test run so to speak.
It will be a full-size Altoids tin, like the one I posted. It will include two koi fish, a turtle, and a frog, plus plants and stones.
I'll have another update when I'm about to post it. I'm just finishing the fish for it now, and it'll be another couple days for it to cure. I'm hoping to have it ready to list on Monday if everything goes well.

This is the journal of requestsSometimes my creativity just doesn't do it's job. During the past art blocky months I've had difficulties with coming up with interesting ideas and avoiding repetitiveness. It would be beneficial to try drawing new things and expanding my comfort zone. So, what I want to do is to gather an archive of requests that I can use whenever I can't think of any worthy subjects by myself. If you have ever thought of what, say, a mammoth would look like if I drew one, you can comment on this journal and ask me to draw a mammoth. If I'm done drawing bleeding dogs for the day, I may come to browse these comments, see your suggestion and if I'm feeling like scribbling a mammoth, I will.This is the journal of requests8 months ago in Personal More Like This
What you can suggest:
- Fan art of any (licensed) character, series, show, movie, book etc. It doesn't matter if I haven't drawn fan art of the thing before or even if I may not have heard of it before. I'll look into it and if I like it, I may draw something.

Mom: ... I mean, shoot, imagine the stories he'll be telling her kid (Renesmee) when she's older.
Me: It'd be one messed up collection of family stories...
Mom: "I was going to kill you, but then I imprinted on your baby face and it was all good."
Me: "Your parents and I used to be a major love triangle."
Mom: "I used to lay awake at night fantasizing about your mother."
Me: "I once force-kissed your mom on the beach. Shirtless."
Mom: "I should have known all along that it was your unfertilized egg I was so smitten with."
Me: "I once told your father I was hotter than him."
Mom: "I once cuddled with your mom in a tent in the middle of a blizzard. And your dad was right there. Watching."

I've never been a really good writer or an artist. I would draw something and people would be like "Is that a truck?" "No, it's a horse.. "
They never realized how much it would bother me on the inside. But on the outside, I shrugged it off. I would go for long periods of time without drawing because, it felt pointless and I was a utter failure.
I would see kids that were like 11 with super skills and I would look at my horse. And want to rip it up and never draw again.
I stubbled across this site watching a youtube videos by DA-sWooZie and whenever I would browse google, it would ALWAYS lead me to the website. So I figured, why not?
It was then, my whole life with changed (dA taking my life away xD). At first, I would post my
