Breaking Down Beauty: Fixing Broken Powder Cosmetics « Painted Ladies By Sheila Arkee So, you have a favorite eyeshadow, pressed powder, or blush you absolutely cannot live without. Life happens, and sometimes before you even realize it, you find yourself the owner of your favorite product, smashed into 5 million little pieces. When your powder cosmetics are broken into 5 million pieces, you can always put them in a small container and use as a loose shadow, but you DO have the option of fixing the products so it’s almost as good as new. Tortoise Shell - "Bekko" FACTORY (Do you have the material for tortoiseshell products?) The importing of hawksbill turtle which we use for material has been prohibited eight years ago by the Washington Treaty. So what we use now is what we imported before that. We are doing our business on what we have already imported before.
BOS academic : The Miura-Ori map The Miura-Ori map by Ian Bain Folded maps are merciless to the user who makes the slightest error in returning them to their compact form. Pt the Tokyo ICA meeting Koryo Miura and Masamori Sakamaki from Tokyo University's Institute of Space and Aeronautical Science demonstrated an application, of space science, combined with a little Origami, which transforms the ergonomics of map folding. Miura and Sakamaki normally work on the problems of packing large flat items, like satellite antennae and solar collectors, into the smallest, most compact shapes with a view to deploying them as rapidly and as simply as possible. They saw three problems with naps folded at right angles in the conventional manner. Palimpsest – Collective memory through Virtual Reality / @ialab Created at the Bartlett School of Architecture / Interactive Architecture, Palimpsest uses 3D scanning and virtual reality to record urban spaces and the communities that live in them. The project aims to question/test the implication if the past, present, and future city could exist in the same place, layering personal stories and local histories of the city at a 1:1 scale. In 1998, researchers discovered that mathematical proofs by Archimedes had been overwritten with biblical texts by monks in the 13th century. Documents such as this, with previous erasures still visible beneath the primary text, are known as palimpsests. Architecture can also be a palimpsest: as cities and buildings are modified and re-purposed, traces of their previous lives remain visible. Their first initiative, The Camden Palimpsest, uses the UK High Speed Rail 2 project as a case study.
Forging Links Master Sword - Twilight Princess version Okay so it's not literally forging because it's made from wood, but it sounds better then making. I've been meaning to write this Instructable for almost a year after completing my Master Sword back in May 2009, but things have always seemed to get in the way until now. I've always been a great fan of all of the Zelda games and I knew it was only time before I attempted to make a replica from one of the games.

Understand color theory with these 7 facts - = Designer Blog Color is everywhere – in nature, in cities, in stores, online. We’re so used to it we often don’t notice it’s even there, until we suddenly come across a black and white movie on TV. Then we remember how good it is that we have such a colorful world. For that reason alone, if not for improving your design skill set, knowing how color works is a good thing to do. So let’s dive in! 1. Syllabus / Designing-For-Digital-Fabrication-S11 Description: The ability to digitally fabricate parts and whole pieces directly from our computers or design files used to be an exotic and expensive option not really suitable for student or designer projects, but changes in this field in the past 5 years have brought these capabilities much closer to our means, especially as ITP students. ITP and NYU now offer us access to laser cutting, CNC routing, and 3D stereolithography. In this class we will learn how to design for and operate these machines.
