For artists who have problems with perspective (furniture etc.) in indoor scenes like me – there’s an online programm called roomsketcher where you can design a house/roon and snap pictures of it using different perspectives.

It’s got an almost endless range of furniture, doors, windows, stairs etc and is easy to use. In addition to that, you don’t have to install anything and if you create an account (which is free) you can save and return to your houses.

Examples (all done by me):

Here’s an example for how you can use it

Great find, thanks!

OMG HEAVEN!!

Bless you!!!!

Here it is: Best stuff first

Extremely handy if you follow a lot of people and hate missing anything good. 

Best Stuff First moves the best stuff on your dashboard—mhm!—right up to the top. 

It’s rolling out this week on iOS and Android, and comes with this Help Center article.  

Thanks! ✌️

Head’s up folks! Tumblr decided to shit the bed and go non-chronological!

This bullshit is being rolled out this week and it’s going to be default!

This is dangerous and manipulative.

The main reasons for these “algorithms” that Instagram, Facebook and Twitter have rolled out are manipulating what people see. Content they want you to see gets pushed to the top, anything threatening to their interests gets quietly tossed to the bottom so you’ll be too tired or bored to see it.

I can see this seriously messing with the livelihood of artists, so please reblog if you can!

This may be part of why I get people saying I don’t come up on their dash anymore. I wouldn’t put it past tumblr to exclude nsfw blogs from this feature.

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of decoden and polymer clay questions about what to use to as a gloss/glaze. Almost every time the first response is “Clear nail polish, duh!”.

This needs to stop if people want to be creating quality items. Sometimes I’m afraid to buy handmade things for fear that they have been sealed with clear nail polish and they will deteriorate over time. I want to buy things that will last!

I’ve reblogged this before – but it’s sooooo important. crafting signal boost 

Oh jeez, I didn’t even know that was a thing. No – never use nail polish thats a horrible idea. 

Everything in the image above can and WILL yellow, with epoxy resin being the worst (seriously, ever seen a old tabletop with pennies or newspaper clippings in the clear stuff? and said clear stuff is very yellow? that’s old epoxy resin.), and the best being, off the top of my head, Mod Podge.

To put it another way, when I am being a professional artist, I don’t use any of those in anything I sell. Ever.

If you can use a water-based coating, or need no smell or brush application, try acrylic Gloss Medium. Liquitex brand is easiest to find – places like Michael’s carry it.

If you need solvent-based coating, and/or you need to spray it, use one of Krylon’s **Gallery Series** clear sprays. I use these and I like them, but they stink like holy hell – even dry, the art needs to air out for several weeks.

Krylon is tougher, for items that may be touched. Acrylic medium tends to be soft – there are ways to make it harder, but for the moment I am sticking with products that are pretty easy to lay hands on.

If you need a matte finish, look for Testor Dullcote – it’s also pretty easy to find, (Michael’s or Hobby Lobby), look in the model train section. It is also tough, but be warned – it is MATTE. It will dull your colors, but if you want a velvety/soft look instead of a “plastic” shine, it’s good stuff. It is a spray can and also extremely stinky, so use with care.

I will add that Modge Podge tends to be a little tacky in high humidity, so if the piece is going somewhere with potential for high humidity you may want to choose something else.

Also if you seal with gloss medium, don’t leave it on newspaper or any kind of printed material to dry. Gloss medium can be used for xerox transfers, which are a lot of fun, but you probably don’t want ink/toner permantly transferred to your jewelry/sculpture/whatever.

Finally, the Krylon you get MUST be the gallery series in a colored can. http://ift.tt/2yqlONU

The cheaper Krylon in the white cans will yellow over time.

My favorite fixatives are Sennelier’s HC10 universal fixative and Golden’s Spray varnish. Both are expensive, but worth the price for stuff that I’m selling or putting in shows and even when I was doing big pieces the cans lasted quite a while.

Whatever spray fix you use, a fine particle respiratorator is a must, NOT A DUST MASK, an actual respirator like this one: http://ift.tt/2yoop9m

Dust masks kill particles, not fumes and with all of these products you’re breathing in acrylic resin in vapor form. Your lungs will not love you.

Also if you ever have someone tell you you can seal something with cheap hairspray I want you to go buy a can and beat them with it. I don’t care if they are your art teacher. Cheap hairspray is no better than nail polish.

Here’s a “life-hack” for you.

Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.

I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”

Nope.

It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.
It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.
Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.

That rich red is only one application too.
Plus it smells great, lol.

So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.

WELL THEN!

this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*

When I was in middle school we used to use it to dye our hair.  Potent stuff.

If you’re dying anything with kool-aid it’s best to use SUGAR-FREE ones otherwise the thing you’re dying might get all sticky

the flavor only packets where you are supposed add sugar are the best. 
they will dye any natural fiber: leather, wool, cotton, hair,  flax, jute, silk and so forth. 
heat the dye water so it is more potent. 
let dry then rinse excess out in cold water. 
there’s  a whole system to this. 

Oh my god

This will prove very useful for any future cosplays I wanna do.

There was an Archie comic story (like a very short one) about this.

I look to commission someone to rehair my Fizzy (since I’m no good at this) … Did you know someone who do that ? (Better in Europe)

I can do this! But I’m not in Europe; I’m in the US. My website is newgraymare.com and has info on rehairing and costs as well as examples if you’re interested.
