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.

Sorry for the extremely large file! :XD: I swear, it seems like my tutorials keep getting bigger and bigger...

~thinkpastel had a wonderful idea and used circle templates (the kind used for drafting) instead of the washer! [link] She says that she can work any scale up to 1:4, so you can try that too!

I finally finished this tutorial! It feels like it took me forever :XD:

I hope this is understandable :lol: I added many photos and less text, it seemed like a good idea but now I'm not sure... maybe I didn't explain enough :(

I think it's implicit, but anyway: the measures I gave are only for reference! Don't feel restrained by my instructions - use a washer of any size you want! Also, I don't have cutters (yet) but use any cutter you want and make plates with beautiful shapes!

Please show me what you can do using this tutorial! I would really really love to see your plates with or without food :XD: Go crazy!

I usually use acrylic paints :P I used some gel pens too, but they can smear.

Thank you so much for this. I work with larger dolls and it's really difficult to get properly scaled props. Now I just have to find a washer big enough -- or make a similar form.

I used gel paints, but I really don't recommend it they bled out a lot :( the picture died a couple of days after I took the photo XD

Aw, that's unfortunate! The picture was very cute;; Even with glaze over the paint it still faded?
Reply
:icontalty:
Talty Featured By Owner May 27, 2013   Artisan Crafter
yeah, I've tried spray and regular glaze, the spray works a bit better but the gel paints don't seem to dry over polymer clay, so they have the tendency to bled and run and ruin everything :(

Let me know if you use it! Washers and caps or whatever you can improvise as cutters should be easy to find :)

This has been sitting around in my faves for a while, and I've yet to try it! It's so simple, too, so I really have no excuse! :XD: Maybe my excuse could be...I don't have any washers lying around - although I'm sure if I looked hard enough, I could find some. So yeah. No excuse, really. :giggle:
