Tiny Whimsical Porcelain Creatures Anya Stasenko and Slava Leontyev is a duo of Ukrainian artists creating tiny whimsical porcelain creatures. Each sculpture is painted with a wildly imaginative and creative array of painstakingly detailed and brilliantly colorful designs.

One is a graphic artist and the other is a painting teacher. They chose to work with ceramics simply because of economic reasons and because of the relative ease with which the material can be worked.

Cute Shelter Dog Photobooth Pics Help Them Find Forever Homes The Humane Society of Utah, an animal rescue and adoption organization in the U.S., is back with more wonderful shelter dog photobooth pics.

These photos capture these dogs’ individual personalities, and it looks like the approach works – the dogs that get the photobooth treatment get a lot of attention, and many of them get adopted as well.
The Spirit Lantern (Green Fire 2.0) Green fire is ubiquitous on the web, and making it is remarkably straightforward - provided you are not led astray, as I was, by ... let's call it poetic license. Now, after having had a rather disappointing Halloween at chez Green, when I read that a purported "chemistry teacher" found using isopropyl alcohol, rather than methanol, resulted in "a fire that alternated from orange to blue to green" and that it was "pretty cool," I now understand that to mean "after the third whippit, the normal blue and orange flames of the rubbing alcohol looked kind of green. Then I passed out." The rules of making green fire are as simple as they are inviolate: 1) use methanol

Her detailed edible sculptures and cake toppers bring characters from popular animated movies to life. Given her work as an animator for beloved movies like Kung Fu Panda and How To Train Your Dragon, it makes sense that her cake boutique, located in southern California, also primarily serves the entertainment industry.
