Origami is a very unique art form. When did you first develop an interest for it?
After seeing a great little origami dragon on a website, maybe two years ago, I decided I wanted to try and learn how to make it. It was then that I found out that there was a lot more to origami than I had previously thought. I have been enchanted by folding paper ever since.
How long does it take you on average to create an origami animal?
The times vary wildly from model to model. Some of the more complex ones I've folded took up to 10 hours total, if I include the painting time. There are a few in my gallery that can be done in 20 minutes or less. I have to mention that I am a bit of a
How to make a viking dressI used to be a part of one history reenactment group some time ago. Such groups basically reconstruct elements of daily life of people from a selected time period; my group was interested in early Middle Ages, from the 8th to the 11th century, from the Eastern and Northern Europe. Personally, I used to reconstruct a viking woman from today's Sweden areas. Most of you will be shocked, but vikings were not half-naked barbarians with horned helmets. They had no horned helmets. Really.How to make a viking dress by `SylwiaTelari
Anyway, my favourite part of reenactment has always been all the suit making. Buing materials, planning, cutting, sewing (hand sewing!), embroidering. Then, wearing. Generally, viking clothes are very easy to make, though I admit that the materials aren't the cheapest, if you want to make it as much accurate historically as you can.
Our goal: a simple dress, no emboirdery. This is actually my first viking dress I've ever made.
I've prepared a simple tut

Art History Project- Welcome to Artisan Crafts!December is all about Artisan Crafts, baby! We are very excited to bring you a month full of articles, interviews and features about this wonderful world. But before we begin, what is exactly an artisan craft?Art History Project- Welcome to Artisan Crafts! by `Talty
An artisan craft is a physical object made by an artisan completely by hand and usually in small quantities. Being an artisan, or a crafter, is being an artist that excels in the techniques of producing anything from a delicious meal to a deadly sword, from a cozy scarf to an adorable embroidery, from an elegant dress to a complete living room, from a cute plushie to a perfectly accurate doll, and so on.

Rembrandt's Self PortraitsCountless artists have used themselves as models. This, a lot of times, comes out of necessity and convenience, but there are plenty of other reasons why an artist might model for themselves.Rembrandt's Self Portraits by ^PirateLotus-Stock
Rembrandt van Rijn is the first artist I think of when talking about self portraits. (That could be because he's my favorite painter, but whatever ) Some sources say he made 60 self-portraits, others claim he did over 90. Whatever the number, it was a LOT.
The exact reason Rembrandt painted himself so often is unknown, but it has been speculated that perhaps, since he was struggling a lot of his life, he was the cheapest and most readily-available model; he often painted himself as someone else. Or maybe he was doing self-portraits to express his feelings at the time; he sometimes painted himself with a serious look on his face. Another theory is that self-portraits helped artists to be more well-known. There was no Facebook back then, you know. I
