A 'Whittle' Magic: Carve Your Own Wand (Part 2)
Artisan Crafts Week
Part 2A: Carving the Details
Welcome to the final part of A Whittle Magic: Carve Your Own Wand, where we will use basic whittling techniques to carve a Harry Potter-style wand from wood. In Part 1, we practiced some simple whittling cuts and used those cuts to carve the basic shape of the wand. Now, in Part 2, we’ll refine the design by carving the details before moving on to sanding, staining, and finishing.
Because we will be working with sharp knives in close proximity to fingers, this workshop is recommended for those 15 years of age and older.
Caution!! Woodworking is NOT a risk-free craft. Review these safety rules from Part 1 before continuing. Disregard them at your own risk.
Always protect your hands.
Always cut AWAY from yourself. Avoid cutting towards yourself if at all possible.
Always keep your knives shar

A 'Whittle' Magic: Carve Your Own Wand (Part 1)
Artisan Crafts Week
Part 1A: Introduction to Whittling

Greetings, I’m PraeclarusWands and today we will learn how to carve our very own Harry Potter-style wands from wood! This two-part workshop is intended for first-time woodworkers, but experienced woodworkers are sure to benefit as well. Start here in Part 1 to learn the basic techniques of whittling. We'll then use those techniques to whittle the overall shape of your wand. In Part 2, we will carve the details of your design, then sand, stain, and apply a protective finish coat to the wood, enhancing your work and creating a final product you’ll be proud to show off.
Because we will be working with sharp knives in close proximity to fingers, this workshop is recommended for those 15 years of age and older.

Welcome to DA-Fashion!

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 19, 2018, 10:55 AM
Welcome to DA-Fashion! I'm Queen-Kitty and I'm the current fashion photography CV! 

Many of the fashion groups on DA are no longer active, so I wanted to create a space for fashion photographers and models to get together and share their work, their knowledge, as well as to find inspiration in each other. DA-Fashion is a group for fashion photographers and models of all skill levels, ages, and backgrounds.  We like a variety of fashion styles, and if it's fashion, we want to see it! 

My co-founder Mrs-Durden was the fashion photography CV before me, and is currently a general photography CV. I am so excited to have her on the team, since we both have a deep appreciation for fashion photography, as well as different tastes for it.

There are currently 11 Gallery Folders (subject to change), some photos will fit in more than one category, and that's ok!  Pick the category that you feel fits your work best!  And if you have a suggestion for a different category, please let us know.

Here are our 11 Gallery folders that you can submit to:
  • Featured: The best of the best!
  • Beauty: Photographs focusing on a model's face that show off makeup or hair styling
  • Vintage: Fashion photos with a retro style or vintage flair
  • Soft: Fashion photos with a dreamy and/or soft style
  • Colorful: Fashion photos focusing on bright/rich toning and colors
  • Dark: Fashion photos with a gothic or dark style
  • Simplicity: Fashion photos with a minimal or simple look
  • Urban: Fashion photos with urban/street style clothing
  • Casual: Fashion photos that focus on casual clothing styles
  • Glam: Fashion photos with glamorous/luxurious styles
  • Fashion Articles: Informative journals or articles about fashion

We will only accept photographs submitted to the fashion portrait and commercial fashion categories Heart

Currently submissions are limited to 3 deviations per day.

Also the pun in the name, so good :')
For the past week or so, it feels like I destroy everything I touch. Please send positive thoughts that this week will get better :heart: I know I have to accept that I will make mistakes every once in awhile, but mine always feel like they come grouped together in multi-packs. :(
