Igne oyasi. The art of oya
This entry is only a brief introduction to a craft I recently found: Turkish needlework or the art of oya.
It is native to the town of Nallihan (in the province of Ankara), in the way of the ancient Silk Road, and still remains largely unknown out of Turkish borders. 

Izmir Ethnography Museum (2014)

Younger generations still wear jewellery or accessories decorated with such motives, but the craft itself –as is often the case- has been on the brink of disappearing, now being taught in community centres, trade schools for girls and universities.

Materials used are inexpensive, except perhaps for the silk thread (which does not need to be stiffed), as only straight needle and scissors are required. Nowadays, due to price, cotton and polyester

Introduction to Casting.
Introduction to Casting

Casting is a process in where a solution(usually mixed with a curing agent, or hardener) is poured into a desired mold and then left to set and become a solid, which gives you the desired structure. This process is thousands of years old, and comes in many different forms. Examples of casting are metal casting (or metalwork), glass casting, resin casting and many others. Literally anything you can pour into a mold which becomes solid is considered to be in the art form of 'Casting'. It's regarded as a diverse practice, so no one can really define a specific cast, it's usually up to the artist to use a preferred or specific cast to get the most desirable results.
So what do I need?

It depends on what you want to make exactly. There are so many different types of casting resins and solutions you can use to give you different desired effects. Today however, I am going to show you how to

A reference guide on bookbinding types
A reference guide on bookbinding types
When I tell people I'm a bookbinder they often think I make only one type of book; the library kind. That, however, is only one of the many ways an artist can create a book. For me, it's a fun challenge to pick the right binding style to go with the purpose of the book. Whether it is a novel that needs to look really classy or medieval, a sketchbook for a graphic novelist or a paper about connections that lets me show the binding. In this article I'm going to tell you a little bit about all the types of bookbinding that I know. I'm not going into details but, if possible, I will link to images and tutorials that do.
If you're here for inspiration: this guide is pretty long. I recommend scrolling through the images first!
To make a start...
The different ways of binding books can be broken down into two general groups: adhesive bindings and non-adhesive bindings. Adhesive b

Leather burning and inking

Hi there, dear crafters! :la:
Since it's another amazing Artisan Crafts week, I have an honour to write another article for you. And because I get many questions about how do I finish my leather works, here are some tips and tricks about that :)

I'm working with natural leather, so have no idea how the faux-leather would come up. Since that technique requires actual burning a surface of the material, I'd advise you to stick to the natural one. Trying to burn plastic [some kind of which most of the faux-leathers are made of] can go wrong. And stinky. And unhealthy.
That said, there's still question what kind of naturall leather? Every suede one. The tickness, colour, origin, age etc. are not very important as long as you have nice, fluffy

Wire Working 101
My start to wire art is one that is, well, rather twisted.  I had declared myself a History major in my Junior year at University.  To counterbalance a heavy load of research-based classes, and to stimulate my own creativity, I signed up for Beginning Sculpture.   The irony is that this single class was something that ignited an interest that I never knew that I had. By the end of the course, we had done clay sculpting, latex work, marble carving, wood and fabric art.  Welding proved to be too nerve wracking for me due to volatile gases and high temperatures, but the professor handed me ¼” corrupted aluminum wire welding rods and asked if I could bend them.  I could.  He told me that the basic human shape was the triangle of the torso and left me to work.   I was immediately hooked.

How to take crafting commissions
Taking crafting commissions

Accepting commissions is very different from opening a store in a lot of ways, so I decided to write a separate article for it. However, a lot of what I explained in the article "Introduction to setting up your store" also applies to taking commissions, so make sure to read that article too!
Note: I’m writing this with crafting commissions in mind, since that’s my area of expertise. I imagine that some things could also apply to other kind of commissions, but I make no promises :P
What is a commission?
A commission is when a client pays you to create a specific craft with their idea or instructions.
How is a commission different from sales in my store?
When you sell something in your store, people are buying your work. When you accept a commission, people are hiring you to do

Did You Know - Permalinks
Did you know there are three direct links, or permalinks, to deviations? The first is the link, which can be found under the "Details" tab on the right side of the deviation page along with the thumb code ( :thumb#########: ) and the embed code.

Sometimes this link and the embed code are unavailable because the user has disabled sharing. Not to fret, as you may still link to the deviation inside of dA and to people who have accounts with other permalinks. If a person has disabled sharing, be considerate and don't look for ways around sharing it; creating a dA account to view with is easy and fast to make.
The second permalink is probably the link you are most familiar with, it looks like this:
