More than 230 film color processes have been devised in the course of film history, often in connection with photography. Both mediums institutionalized the techniques of hand and stencil coloring as well as toning. Printing methods such as the Pinatype or Technicolor, and screen processes like the Autochrome or Dufaycolor were initially developed in the context of still photography before being used in motion pictures in the 1920s. This publication highlights material aspects of color in photography and film, while also investigating the relationship of historical film colors and present-day photography. Alongside film stills from the likes of Godard and Lynch, works by contemporary photographers and artists―Dunja Evers, Raphael Hefti, Alexandra Navratil and others―reflect on technological and culture-theoretical aspects of the material of color. Thematic clusters focus on aesthetic and technological parallels, including fashion and identity, abstraction and experiment, politics, exoticism and travel.

With 30 intriguing projects of varied complexity, this complete guide teaches techniques for arranging, organizing, mounting, and creating narratives. The boxes use easily available items like cigar boxes, unusual packaging containers, or mint tins. The form's history is covered too, including the curiosity cabinets of Renaissance Europe, the found-object assemblage boxes created in the 20th century by Joseph Cornell, and the works artists create today. You'll find examples that teach arrangement, grouping, and assembly, and a 40-page inspirational gallery of works by expert artists.

My name is Adela Silvestre, but as soon as the Instagram homepage welcomes me I’m magically transformed into The Mint Feather, a crafter who loves scrapbooking, Home Decor and product photography. There, I explore all kinds of handicrafts or fields of art. I can think of I absolutely go crazy for wood and cardboard techniques. The noise of my electric screwdriver is my white noise. Collage making is my favorite art expression and decorating my house is my personal therapy. Without a doubt, what I most enjoy is looking at random objects and thinking how I can transform them into something completely different and creative. Are you joining the party?

This guide shows you step by step how to sculpt realistic figures, from face to feet, through 10 projects. Professional sculptor and instructor Élisabeth Bonvalot provides the guidance and tips needed to—with time and practice!—reach realism with your sculpted figures. Begin with the fundamentals, such as the types and properties of clays, the materials and tools, four base techniques, and topics such as roughing out, adding clay, detailing, engobe, firing, and patinas. The first five lessons teach the elements of figure sculpting, focusing your attention on heads, faces, hands, feet, and the body. The next five projects offer a sequence for effective skills building as you create a bas-relief portrait, an animal, a standing nude, a bust, and a lifesize figure. This comprehensive approach is perfect for people who love clay and have a can-do attitude, even with limited formal art class experience.
