Re: Suggestion Box

I was wondering if you could add a discussion thread for the topic "Murals". There are alot of people who work in this medium and I have been looking for inspiration in this area. Thanks for listening.

Re: Suggestion Box

Hi Debra, welcome to wetcanvas.

As most murals seem to be done in acrylics (is that true?) then a sticky thread in the acrylics forum might be a start?

Re: Suggestion Box

Is there a sub-forum for Murals?

Re: Suggestion Box

I've got a suggestion. But it might sound a little silly. I found a box of Crayola Crayons in my art box a while back. It reminded me of my childhood days and I thought why not try to make some art using crayons. But then, I didn't know what to draw. So, I went online for some research and found that very few artist use crayons as a medium.

Maybe due to the fact that crayons are "meant for children". And maybe because of that, no websites have a tab for crayons, how to use them and the wonderful things you can draw with them.

So I was hoping that an admin might create a place where people are encouraged to use crayons to draw something and post it in that forum. But I know there is a need for demand before admins do anything.

But it's just a suggestion. Something I wanted to share. That's all.

Re: Suggestion Box

Why not have a go and post your picture in the Mixed Media/Alternative Mediums forum?

You might start a trend.

Well, this probably isn't the place for this discussion, but since I'm here...IMHO, pushing the darks means heightening the contrast by adding more darks. It probably came from the idea of "push development" in photography, where when a roll of film (remember that stuff?) was underexposed you could compensate by developing it for a longer period of time, thus making more contrast. So when someone says "push the darks" they're probably suggesting more, stronger or darker darks. Hope that helps...

Re: Suggestion Box

I would like to suggest that "Art Journals" be placed in the channels dropdown. Its in the box on the main page, but not in the dropdown that appears on all pages so that makes it hard to get to.

Re: Suggestion Box

There's a bug affecting the Channels dropdown, it also affects other forums.

It is on the techies' list.

If you go to the Home page you will find it listed on the left side. It is also listed in Content Areas/Discussion Forums at the top of the page and in the drop down forum list bottom right.

Re: Suggestion Box

How bout the facebook link so when we post a reply we can choose to automatically post it to facebook. i have put links in facebook walls, but some times it only puts the wetcanvas main page.

Re: Suggestion Box

Speaking of the butt icon, is there anyway to group all the butt icon posts together or an icon search or something like that. i can put "butt icon" in search, but would like to see all posts with that icon without looking thru every forum

Re: Suggestion Box

Facebook link and butt searches. Well, I personally don't have time to follow the facebook wall, I prefer to see work posted on wetcanvas. Often members say they have posted to facebook but not to wetcanvas. This is a loss imho.

Not sure about butt searches, I'll try it.

That's what I'm saying. When you post something on wetcanvas, have a link to post it to facebook without going off the site. Fineartamerica has this feature as do other websites. It is a little f share link

Thanks

Re: Suggestion Box

I see what you mean, yes a facebook link icon would be good and would help get more people to the site.

Thanks for the explanation, I'll put it forward.
