Handy Hints and Tips!

Get Involved!

As always projecteducate is ever evolving and developing new ways to allow Deviants to get involved whilst not having to tackle the (sometimes daunting!) task of writing a full length article, or taking on a whole seven days of Education! Therefore the Handy Hints & Tips Blog Series began a few months ago and we're reminding you again that it exists and encouraging you to get involved! Existing Hints and Tips articles can be found within the galleries located here.

What's the Idea?
Some of us love reading long articles, but many of us prefer to be able to read something short, concise and to the point perhaps including an image to illustrate the point - but nothing more. So the idea is that members of the Community Volunteer team and of the wider deviantART Community (YOU!) can start blogging a handy hint or tip related to Art or deviantART, via our blog. Check out the examples at the bottom of this article for more info...

How can I get involved?
All you need to do is note the projecteducate group with your Hint or Tip! This is so that we can be sure we don't have any double-posting going on and we'll always work with you to adapt your idea if someone else has proposed it already. Once you and the team are happy with everything, we'll invite you into the group as a contributor, help you access the journal skin and you can go ahead and post! It's that simple. :) (Smile)

What about normal Project Educate Weeks?
These won't be affected at all. We'll encourage everyone to look at the projecteducate Schedule before posting their blog to ensure they don't post in the middle of someone's week! Alternatively though, if your 'Hint or Tip' is relevant to an upcoming PE week then why not wait and negotiate a slot in the schedule to post it then?! If you need an idea of how it might work, check out the examples below!


Hints and Tips #3 : Paths in GIMPHints & Tips is a new series of articles here at #projecteducate designed to bring you short, concise articles that give you some great artistic advice. To check out previous articles in the series follow this link. If you want to write an article, note #projecteducate
Hello! 
First of all, I plan for this information to be for those fairly new to GIMP. Some folks who have been using it for years will find it inane and obvious, but really those who have GIMP as their first digital art/editing program will most likely not know these things. Feel free to read though if you wanna say "Pfft, I knew that" throughout.

Windows

First of all, most people either don't know or forget that almost everything you need can be found in the Windows drop down menu. You can find all your dockable dialog boxes there and all their features will open u

Hints and Tips #1Hello and welcome to the first instalments of 'Hints & Tips' and 
I hope these short and simple Tutorials will help boost and
inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many 
forms and mediums that you may work in.
SO... The first Hint/Tip is -
FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)

STEPS
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait 
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat

=to show that it doesn't remove paint, here is the finished piece=
I hope this helps
Bye :wave:

Hi, I just wanna say that the journals featured here are so useful... I've been reading some of them, specially the ones related with motivation, traditional art and artist's toolbox, and I think they're very helpful with some things... thank you for making this for dA, it's very appreciated :)
