All of them are great but I really like the first one. The corners look like they're popping off the piece. Really nicely done!

I would totally buy this if you were selling it and if I wasn't broke! It's so elegant and classic.

This is like the third one I made. I'm not sure why a hole appeared in the middle of her forehead... Does this often happen when you use plastic from food containers? I think I did 350 in the oven. It's a combo of permanent markers, colored pencils and acrylic ink with a nib pen.

Thanks! That would be so great! I have trouble finding SS wire locally though except for the braided type. Where do you buy yours?

I'm probably not annealing them right because only the ends are turning red. Nothing can be simple, can it?

I'm a bit confused, it only lets you cut small shapes? How big does it let you cut?

Thank you, I'll bookmark those links.

I forgot to mention that I'm talking about for shrinky dinks. I edited the title to include that.

No one?

Well, I've give it a try if it's cheap enough and report back here with my findings.

We also have to remember that his work will be on some one else's skin, pretty permanent, even with removal the scar is in the outline of the tattoo. If he can't take criticism in this line of work, then he's not cut out for this line of work. I don't know him and I can't speak to whether he can accept criticism of not.

If he ruins a canvas or something else, then that's fine and doesn't harm anyone.

I would just like to point out that the economy has *never* been prime for artists.
Yes, that's why I wrote, "In today's economy, or even when it wasn't so difficult out there, artists are having a very hard time making a living out of their crafts."

Quote
Also, to point out, a lot of very wealthy artists around today are not particularly talented or skilled.
Yes, which is why I also wrote, "Even if they're incredibly talented."

Quote
But, most importantly, coming from a young adult, who went to school for art (and relatively sustains themselves off said art), please do not encourage or push them going into something just to make money.
YOU are very lucky, then. But to the OP, I have this to say: By all means, spare his feelings (if you really think he's overly sensitive and would be offended at your voicing your concerns for his welfare even when you make a point to recognize what is probably very real talent) at the very probable chance that he won't have enough money to care for himself. Unless you're fine with always financially supporting him or having the tax payers do it.
