Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?
It seems there has been a recent explosion in DA users who are now using polymer clay as a medium for their deviations. To help out curious users who might be interested in what this medium is, how it works, or where they can get it I thought a NEWS article should be made. I shall also showcase some deviations made with polymer clay. The data below is compiled from HanaClayWorks (https://www.deviantart.com/hanaclayworks) polymer clay FAQ and my own FAQ :bulletred: What is polymer clay? -Polymer clay is actually not clay at all. It is a form of plastic. (Specifically fine particles of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) suspended in plasticizer) The only reason it is called "clay" is beca

How to Commission an Artist
I've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there.  One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate.  Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists.  The simple fact of the matter is that it happens. However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to

Preethi does extraordinary nature photography.

Every once in a while she turns the camera on herself.

Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.
Enjoy!

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?



Because it's past time for white-haired white men to stand up and say it.

The Heidelberg Catechism , written in 1563, remains a warm-hearted and personal statement of the Christian faith. It begins thusly...

What is your only comfort in life and in death?

That I am not my own,
but belong--
    body and soul,
    in life and in death--
    to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.
He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,
and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.
He also watches over me in such a way
that not a hair can fall from my head
without the will of my Father in heaven:
in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.

Because I belong to him,
Christ, by his Holy Spirit,
assures me of eternal life
and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready
