Terms for using my tutorials

When using my tutorials or techniques explained in my tutorials all I need is that you say or write "Inspired by Talty" somewhere on the description, that's all I'm asking for. A link back to my gallery or tutorial is appreciated, but not necessary. You can make anything in my tutorials for personal or commercial purposes (yes, that means you can sell what you make) but you can't claim these techniques as your own. No redistribution, reposting or repacking of my tutorials, images, text or any part of them is allowed. They can't be translated to other languages without my permission (ask me about it). FREE TUTORIAL, NEVER TRY TO SELL IT.

UPDATE: The amazing ~Snowfern pointed out some mistakes I had made about the baking times. She explained to me why it was important to bake your items at the correct temperature, for the right amount of time. Even if your minis look fine, they're raw in the inside and they will deteriorate overtime! Not immediately, but in a few years they will crumble... so please, I can't stress how important it is to learn to bake your creations correctly!

I am sorry everyone for the mistake, I hope I didn't cause trouble :( I am not perfect and I am still learning, so if you see me making any more mistakes please let me know :heart: I really want to help, so I certainly don't want to give false information. Please give some love to ~Snowfern!


One of the tutorials that helped me the most when I was learning how to make cakes was this [link] by Betsy Niederer

Cakes are one of the most complicated things I do, so the tutorial ended up being quite long... actually they're not complicated, they're quite easy but they involve many steps.

This took me months to finish, months! I took the first photos 3 months ago, and the last one just a couple of days ago. It was getting ridiculous: the more I advanced, the more I felt the need to take a new photo, explain a new technique, revise everything... I had to stop myself from dragging the tutorial any longer. It's finished, but I'm sure that I'll want to revise it again in the future.

Well that explains why the lightning is so inconsistent. I'm sorry about that, I hope it's not too annoying.

My next tutorial is going to be something quick and easy or I'll die :faint: what to do next? :P

This is an amazing tutorial, especially helped along by the optimistic and amusing 'commentary'! I can't wait to get my hands on some polymer clay to try it out!

Oh, the 'Collection Of Clay Tutorials' is a 'book' I am writing, featuring some of my favourite tutorials (It may get into a group, so I wanted to check with you first)

Is it ok if I feature this tutorial in a journal, and in a 'Collection Of Clay Charm Tutorials' that I am currently brewing up?

Hello there! A very good day to you. I found you from deviant art and think it will be interesting to ask if you would like to share your tutorial on our blog? It's a sharing blog for clay art in Malaysia targeting audience specifically for clay, clay artists, and even event organisers who are looking for talents. Posting quality tutorials on our blog will immensely increase your exposure as a clay artist and it'll be a good portfolio for yourself too. All credits will goes to you and at the bottom of the post, I'll put link to your email, blog, facebook, websites, etc. 

Please let me know should you be interested. Hope to hear from you soon.
