Group Switch Around Meme Results!The Results!Apologies for the ridiculously late posting, but here are the results of our first group Switch Around Meme collaboration! We had 50+participants, 150+ individual artworks, and a whole bunch of fantastic final pieces, so make sure to take a look. Thank you to all the participants, all our helper line-art and coloring artists, as well as the admins who helped me manage this event. This collaboration event was met with a great deal of enthusiasm, so we will likely have more (better-organized) collab events in the future. These compilations were arbitrarily split up into sets of ten, just so that there wouldn't be one giant file:1. TheShadowEmpress http://sta.sh/01owvv9rpkn72. SimplySilent http://sta.sh/0iyqtgojy503.

Writing On The GoArtist's ToolboxWhat I really like about projecteducate is that the articles are not lectures taught in person. Because of this, I can sit in a car and type up my article while waiting on my sister to get done with her art class. Of course, I still have to put the article into Stash and work on coding when I get back into a wifi zone, but 75% of the work is done! Writing when you're out and about really helps you plow through your list of things to write so today I'll teach you some tips and tricks to make writing on the go easy and more enjoyable!Times to WriteThe CommuteI'm assuming most everybody reading this goes to school or work away from home which means you'll have to commute to work or school. If you drive yourself to work or school, skip over this section for it will have nothing valuable for you. If, however, you ride in a cab or bus or whatever and do not get sick while reading in a moving vehicle, this is for you. The comm
Do you/a friend Need Exposure for Adoptables? I've recently found people who have made these really nice adoptables, at least artistically I think they're really well done. And then it pains me to see when very few people bid on them, and this amazing creation can only sell for like, $5 or something.Now I've never tried adoptables, and I'm not sure I completely understand how they work, but what I do know is that it seems artists who do them are really at the mercy of how much exposure they get. In that way, it's much like everything else; if you don't have the numbers, really great work goes unnoticed and sells for a handful of jelly beans.So I'm going to do a journal that features Adoptables.Do you have, or know someone who is selling *nice quality* adoptables but really needs exposure on them? Leave a thumbnail or link in this journal, and maybe I'll choose them for my feature. I can't showcase them all, but I'd certainly like to try and get a few out there.The world gets harder for artists all the time
Silver Soldering ToolsArtist's ToolboxSilver soldering is one of many different types of soldering, and is a commonly used technique in jewelry-making. There are many different tools that can be used for silver soldering - I will go over the basic tools that I use in my soldering endeavors, but there are certainly a lot more than I will be able to cover in this article!SolderThe first and most obvious "tool" in silver soldering is the solder itself. Silver solder is just that - it is silver alloys that are specifically created to melt at certain temperatures in order to be perfect for varying soldering jobs. The silver solder that I use comes in sheets & is cut into small chips in order to be used. There are different 'levels,' if you will, of solder - most commonly called Hard, Medium, Easy (and I sometimes use Extra Easy).The difference between the 'levels' is the temperature at which they each melt. Hard solder melts at the hottest temperature, and Extra Easy at th
