 What are the tools used for making resin art 

 Thankfully making resins art isn’t very expensive and the tools can be bought in your local store, online, and many other places. These tools are so common that you probably have some lying somewhere in your house right now. You may not always use the same resin tools cuz different projects require different procedures, but here is a list of must-haves for whatever projects you are working on

. Butane blow torch

. Art resin 

. Gloves 

. Masking tape

. Plastic measuring cup.

. levels 

. Plastic spreader 

. Plastic stands 

. Alcohol

. Paper towel

. Plastic stir stick

. Dust covers 

 Notice how most of the tools are specified as plastic, that’s because resin doesn’t stick to plastic so it makes for easier cleanup.

How to make resin art 

To start, make sure your tools and equipment are clean, we don’t want impurities floating around in your resin. Preferably, with your alcohol and paper towel.

Almost all resin art generally follows the same basic pattern, make a mold, mix and pour your resin remove impurities, pop the bubbles, cover, and leave to dry. That’s the basic but different projects may have some additional steps.

The mold

You can buy custom-made mold that has already been manufactured for that specific project, and some even come with resin and mixture ratio. The other option is to do what most people do DIY. The type of project you are working on will determine what material you use for your mold. For example, in wood wall art the wood is carved out to form a design pattern becoming a mold. Another example is body sculptures, silicon is usually used to form the mold as it would give you an accurate 3d depiction.

The art resin 

Art resin comes in two parts one is the actual resin and the other a hardener. There are different types of art resin made for different specifications but they all find themselves somewhere in between these two

. Deep pour

This is usually used where large displacements are needed, they are thinner, cure slower, and have a higher mixing ratio.

. Surface pour

  Usually used as a coating for art as it is durable, it is thicker, has shorter curing time, and has a 1:1 mixing ratio.

Impurity and bubble removal

Remove any impurities before it cures then remove the bubbles using a butane torch. Resins have a high melting point so a torch would do the job very nicely.

After that, if you are satisfied with your results cover it with your dust cover till it cures.

How to Design a Tattoo

Designing a tattoo is an incredibly personal experience, so you should really spend time doing research and working on your sketch. Tattoos can be compelling ways to showcase important aspects of your life. Learn how to design your own tattoo!

Designing a tattoo is not an easy task. There are many things to take into consideration before you can actually start drawing. Before designing a tattoo, the most critical question is, “what do I want the tattoo to look like?” You need to make sure you know what you want the tattoo before moving on to the next step of designing it.

Look for inspiration to design tattoos.

If your tattoo is supposed to represent something, a picture, or a symbol, it will be easier to understand if you can imagine the person for whom it is intended. The symbol or picture can be whatever you have in mind.

Suppose you want your tattoo to represent your family. In that case, tattoos of family trees, portraits of relatives, and pictures of family pets are examples of tattoos that work well.

A tattoo representing a favorite book or movie or musician or sports team is more problematic because the person for whom it is intended won’t necessarily care about the same things you do.

Sometimes the best tattoos are funny or ironic. A tattoo doesn’t have to be permanent. Temporary tattoos are fun, and when designed well, can represent anything, including ideas.

Tattoos are personal and idiosyncratic, so you can’t expect them to turn out the same way anyone else’s does.

Use the right tools

When designing a tattoo, you have two basic choices.  You either sketch your ideas on paper, or you can use a stencil.

Sketching by hand can be pretty satisfying. You create the picture you like, and you can change it as much as possible until it looks the way you want. And so, if you make a mistake, you can fix it. But it’s also time-consuming and hard to share. If you want to show your idea to someone else, you have to draw the whole thing again.

Stencils are quicker and more accessible, but the picture you get is not as good as the one you drew. Stencils work only if your idea is simple enough to write down. And if you’re an artist, that may not always be true. For example, graphics artists have their own set of tools, which are unlikely to be used when designing a tattoo.

Stencils are better when you just need a rough outline for shaping your design. But if you want to make a detailed drawing, you have to draw it by hand.

The choice of tools you make depends partly on how easy you want the design to change. Stencils are more accessible but more complicated.

 

Conclusion

The proper tattoo design can be material. Some people don’t think twice about getting a tattoo; others, it’s a serious decision, one they ponder for years. But in either case, the final design must be just right.

How to Make Bead Necklace Tutorial

I’m sure you’ve seen lots of people making bead necklaces, but the question is- do you know how to do it? Making bead necklaces may seem easy, but some techniques need to be practiced to achieve your desired results. That’s why I made this easy-to-follow beading tutorial so you’ll know all the steps in making a gorgeous bead necklace.

Beads are a popular crafting supply. You can make many different beaded crafts with them. There are beads available in a wide range of colors to help you create jewelry and other items in various colors. Use these tips to learn the basics of making your own bead necklace.

Making necklaces is tremendous fun, and they can be surprisingly quick to make. And depending on the beads and thread you use, they can last for years.

A beaded necklace is easy to make.

 

Choose beads.

A necklace of beads is a straightforward project. But to achieve a beautiful result, you have to know how to choose the suitable beads, arrange them, and finish.

The beads you choose will depend on what you want the necklace to do. Find a set of beads. If you have difficulty, try a craft store. The beads you need should come in lovely little bags, like beads for stringing jewelry. Decide what kind of necklace you want. If you want to make complicated patterns, it might help to draw them out; but if you’re planning to wear the necklace often, it’s better just to experiment.

Decide the appearance of your necklace.

Do you want to make it an item to wear or for display? Do you want a necklace of beads that hang down or a necklace that hangs around your neck? Do you want the beads to dangle from a long chain or from short, twisted cords

Decide what pattern you want.

Some patterns are easy. A string of beads, for example, is a matter of following the pattern. Other patterns are less accessible. A star, for example, requires you to hold the ends of the string together, which is awkward.

Decide on the Scale

Do you want to make a necklace that will hang down over your shoulders or one that will cover most of your body, with beads running up your arms, across your chest, over your belly, and down your back?

 

Decide what thread to use.

Threads often contain cotton or polyester. The thread you choose will depend on what you want the necklace to do. Find the right size of the string. Most craft stores have beading threads in lots of different sizes. The string you use will be about twice the length of your beads, so you need about 15 feet.

Wind the string around the beads.

When you wind, hold the thread taut, but don’t stretch it. On reaching  the end, tie it and take the string off. Then trim off the excess. You can string the beads on a wire if you want to, then wear the wire as a necklace.

String beads on a string.

You can string them the same way you strung them on the thread, but stringing them on a string is more accessible and then decide how you want to wear them.

 

Conclusion

Making necklaces is fun, and you can create beautiful arrays in no time. The materials are inexpensive, so you can experiment to find what works best. Making a bead necklace is relaxing and fun. Great satisfaction can come from giving a handmade necklace to someone you love or simply wearing it yourself. It’s time to create something that you can wear or give away! So, get your jewelry kit out and get started today.

How to Whiten Teeth

Whitening teeth is widespread today, but not everyone’s lucky enough to be born with pearly white teeth. While you might think it is not possible to change your smile and that you will need invasive procedures that would cost your back, there are many ways in which you can actually do it. They don’t require a single trip to the dentist!

Are you looking to attain that perfect Hollywood smile? Or perhaps you like the look of white teeth. Here are some tips that will help you achieve professional results.

 

Use The Right Whitening Product For You.

Whitening your teeth used to be a two-step process. First, you had to make your teeth whiter, and then you had to go visit your dentist to get the stains off. The dentist would scrape your teeth with a scraper, rinse them, then apply some chemicals.

Now there is a one-step process, thanks to Luster Premium White. Luster Premium White is a toothpaste you put on your own, and it is guaranteed to whiten your teeth. It’s pretty widely available online and in supermarkets. Luster Premium White works by dissolving stains on your teeth.

The hydrogen peroxide in Luster Premium White is activated by a special light, a blue light. The blue light is painless. In fact, blue light is used to activate the hydrogen peroxide in Luster Premium White.

Be Consistent With Your Whitening Routine.

Whitening your teeth is not like getting a manicure. Once you have it, you need to keep it up. But most dental patients don’t, and with good reason. Tooth-whitening kinds of toothpaste only really work for a week or so, and after that, your teeth go back to their natural color. And then you start over again. And keep having to repeat the process over and over.

But whitening kinds of toothpaste also use only a tiny amount of peroxide. If you don’t whiten your teeth now, they’ll return to their natural color in a week or two. So, assuming your teeth are small, to begin with, you can get your teeth whitened twice a year. That’s still a lot of whitening, but it’s a lot less.

Next, you should try whitening strips. These work pretty well, but they use a lot of peroxides, and your teeth will start off really white and will look really white for a while. But then your teeth will start to get discolored again.

After that, you could try professional whitening. This is expensive, but the results are dramatic. You could get your teeth whitened in one day, and they would stay that way. But try this approach only once; you probably won’t want to repeat it. Professional whitening is not cheap, and it can take a long time to see results.

 

The critical thing to remember is, if you have your teeth whitened professionally, you have to keep up your dental routine. Otherwise, your teeth will go right back to their natural color.

 

Conclusion

If you’re like most people, you’ve had your teeth whitened; maybe more than once. You’ve seen the advertisements promising to brighten your smile and make you more confident. You’ve probably even followed the directions, mixing peroxide and baking soda in a plastic tray and wearing it for a few hours.

Now, when your dentist tells you that you need another whitening treatment, you might be tempted to say, “Oh, forget it. I did it already.” But you’re not alone. Dentists can tell how much whitening you have done by the color of your teeth: the more whitening you have done, the whiter your teeth are. The more whitening you do, the more likely your teeth will look whiter after the subsequent treatment.

And, in fact, the more whitening you do, the more likely it is that your teeth will keep looking whiter.

Why is that? Because as your teeth get whiter, they tend to get whiter again. If you want to look good for a long time, you should try to be consistent. You might, for example, keep your teeth whitened once a month and then vary the time between treatments. Or you might use the Luster Premium White paste each time. Being consistent will give you the longest-lasting results.

How to Make Guacamole

List of Ingredients to make guacamole

It would be best to have this serrano pepper to put in a little heat in your dip.

Some people enjoy their guacamole with a touch of garlic. You might not like it. That’s why this is optional.

  • Lime

Make use of freshly squeezed lime. Make sure you do not use jarred lime juice.

Get a touch of salt, and it would bring your entire dip to life.

 

How should you select ripe avocados? 

Having great guacamole begins with having very fresh ingredients. It would be best if you looked for avocados that are firm and ripe. You also do not need or want mushy and soft avocados.

My thoughts on Ways to Make guacamole

Hey! There are some ingredients I would have preferred to be on this list that isn’t on the list of ingredients. The things I could have or would have liked to add to this recipe include curry, thyme, pepper, red bell pepper, sweet corn, and some ground chicken pieces. The thing is, if you or I mistakenly put these ingredients in your guacamole, it would not be guacamole anymore, so when wishing for something you want to add and things you should not count, be careful and follow the instructions strictly. For me and all the things I would like to put on my guacamole, I would have to completely use those extra ingredients for another recipe. Guacamole is a dip. You know, something that is used to eat a lot of other things. One should not use it or eat it alone. If you do that, you will end up in a hospital. Trust me. So just use this simple recipe.

HOW TO WHISTLE

Whistling can look so simple and basic but when it’s time for you to whistle it becomes very hard and tricky. What’s so great about knowing how to whistle? Imagine having a rowdy crowd, no matter how loud you scream they might just not hear you, but when you blow a high-pitched whistle, it immediately grabs the attention of the crowd. That is just how much a whistle can be effective. So if you’ve tried so hard but just can’t seem to get your whistle right, you’ve forgotten how to whistle, try a new whistling technic or just basically want to learn how to whistle. Then you’ve just seen the right article. This article would teach you how to whistle either with your tongue or your fingers and the technic behind how to whistle.

Methods to whistling

Let’s discuss three common methods one can whistle;

Whistling with your tongue

This method of whistling does not produce a sharp or shrill sound like the other methods we will be discussing. When you whistle with your tongue the whistle sound produced is a softer tone. The steps below show how to whistle with your tongue.

  • Pout your lips slightly. Your lips should be pulled back with your tongue placed between your upper teeth and your lower lip closed tightly. Your mouth should look like you are smiling slightly without teeth. The positioning of the mouth is very important as it affects the kind of sound produced and how loud the whistle would be.
  • Next, position your tongue flat behind your bottom teeth without any contact.
  • Blow across your tongue by directing the air downwards towards your lower lips.

How to whistle with your fingers

This method of whistling produces a shrill and loud sound which is great for catching someone’s attention or hailing a cab. To whistle with your fingers

  • Put the tip of your two pinky fingers to form an A shape. You could also your index fingers or if you want to whistle with just one hand you can use your thumb and your index finger with the rest of your fingers pressed down
  • Insert your lips over your teeth with your tongue pushing back over your pinkies until the first knuckle of your finger reaches your lip and close your mouth tightly with a little opening only between your two pinkies
  • Blow air and ensure the air passage is only between your two pinkies. Once in the clear blow harder to produce a more shrill sound

How to whistle with your lips

This whistling technic is great if you want to whistle to your favorite songs. you can use this method to create different tunes depending on how you position your tongue, jaws, and lips. To whistle with your tongue

  • Pour your lips and softly blow air through until you hear your first tone.
  • Keep your tongue relaxed and blow harder.

No one is born with the gift to whistle, it’s a skill that is harnessed and mastered quickly by some while for others it’s a work in progress. All you need to do is have patience and try harder.

Tips for Moving in Winter

Moving to a new home can be tough anytime of the year, but moving in winter comes with its own obstacles and challenges. Here are some tips for moving to a new house during the winter:

Weather

Be prepared for winter weather while moving . It goes without saying but every time you step outside, make sure you’re dressed properly – if moving on foot – for the cold, wet conditions. If you are moving by car , make sure you have all the necessary materials for moving in winter. Remember, it’s going to be cold, so dress accordingly.

If possible, try to move on a day where there isn’t expected to be precipitation, such as rain or snow. It’ll make things much easier for you as less stuff will get wet or dirty (It’s not fun doing that by hand). Also, cold temperatures can freeze pipes and increase the risk of breakage.

Try to pack light

Notice I didn’t say “pack nothing.” Unless you have a moving company coming in to take care of things for you, moving home is going to be one very long day filled with lots of walking and lifting (and probably some cursing). Save yourself the trouble; don’t move anything that isn’t essential , like that old bowling trophy or dresser that’s missing two legs (the latter would be me moving last summer but it was too funny not to mention).

Time of day

Get moving early! Since moving days are already long and arduous , do what you can to get everything done as quickly as possible. Try moving first thing in the morning in the winter since the sun goes down sooner. It’s also very cold outside in the evening. If moving late, grab a flashlight – it’ll be dark soon anyway! It might also help if you keep moving forward during transport (in other words, don’t dilly dally because this isn’t the time)!

Kids and Pets

Keep pets and children inside until moving is done. If they have to go out , try keeping them on a leash or by your side so they won’t wander off through an open door. Also, don’t forget there might still be some hot water left over from the previous occupants (it happens all the time), which means you might end up scalding yourself (or your children or pets) if moving too quickly through an empty house. You already have enough on your plate; don’t make things worse!

Moving Company

Consider timing when working with a with moving company. Sometimes moving companies can only come during certain times of the day, which can work out better for you than moving late at night when stores are closed and it is harder to buy supplies. Moving companies can be very helpful with moving a lot of belongings quickly. It’s always a good idea to try to book a moving company to start early in the morning when the day begins.

If you’re moving this winter, I hope these tips help you have the smoothest moving experience possible!
