Making ART with CHEAP SUPPLIES?! | Crayola Art Challenge | Can an Adult Make Art With Crayola?


Every year around August or September I get really excited as I walk into the grocery store and I’ll see all the school supplies There’s always that Crayola display and I want to buy everything and then I have to realize wait. I already own all of these things Today I’m going to be using the Crayola crayons pencils and markers. They already own and create an illustration with them To prove that you don’t need expensive art supplies, you know to create something I’m gonna be using the cheapest supplies possible so I’ve got a piece of printer paper a regular pencil, a pack of Crayola colored pencils, and some washable markers and Crayons about a year ago. I did this exact same sort of like a challenge It’s not really a challenge because it’s just using supplies that I used to use when I was younger But I did this exact same exercise About a year ago last time that the school supplies was in the grocery store and all that stuff But doing it last year It didn’t turn out exactly how I would have wanted it to and I learned a lot of things about The different ways to use these supplies that I wanted to try and you know apply to a new Illustration and see if I can use what I learned is to create something a little bit more appealing to me and So I’m going to be redrawing that exact same picture That I did a year ago and see if I can you know improve upon it if you’re interested I’ll have a link in the description We can check out that video, but I’m going to be recreating the illustration so spoilers if you haven’t seen it So on my last attempt to use Crayola art supplies to create an illustration I drew two small and I only use well, I basically only use markers. I also used some crayons but Because I’d only used markers and they’re the wide tip. I didn’t have any of the fine point Crayola markers cuz I’m pretty sure they make those but I don’t know anything. Um, I had a lot of trouble with line variation, And my lines were just very very thick and bold and I Wanted to combat that by drawing bigger so you’ll see I’m taking up a lot more space on the page with my illustration and I’m hoping to combat that, That way I also am going to be using Crayola colored pencils this time Which have a much finer point than like the markers? So I’m hoping to be able to get a lot more details into this illustration Oh and here I’m just changing the arm because I was looking back at the reference of my original drawing and her arms are behind Her back, so I was like, I gotta move to her arms back her back now That’s that another thing I realized I did wrong after looking back at the reference was that in the original? Illustration her eyes were closed and I thought maybe it would be okay to have her eyes open But I decided I really want to try and capture the old illustrations so I decided to shut her eyes, and I really enjoyed drawing shut eyes like just a once whoosh it’s just a very simple and Stylized the way of doing it and I just had to find that one I think I’ve mentioned quite a few times that shoes or something that I wanted to get better at drawing and I’ve been practicing them And I think I’m quite happy with the way the shoes turned out in this illustration I think I’ve you know stepped it up a notch on them and I really like the way they look like with the soles, and the full toe of the foot and that Sort of thing. So in the two years that it’s been since I drew the last Creole illustration I have improved in I suppose many ways But one thing that I think I still need to practice a lot and I don’t feel any better at is drawing braids I feel like at one point. I kind of understood braids better than I do now It’s somehow I’ve just like lost some of that knowledge So, I need to do some more practicing with that. But basically I was just winging it for this I was like because I know what a braid is like. I braid my hair a lot I I know what a braid looks like, but for some reason drawing them even with a reference is extremely difficult for me So you’ll see these braids especially near like her scalp area is where the braid makes the least amount of sense so yeah, just thought I’d point that out and something that like some experience I have with drawing braids is that whenever I try to draw like swishy braids the more Detail I put into the braid like the stiffer the braid looks and it looks like less swishy and swishes But I’m going for specifically with this one and so you’ll see me drawing that gesture line a lot trying to figure out the swish of this braid and When I start adding in all of the actual strands of hair it starts getting a little stiffer So I was really trying to combat that because I just know from experience that that happens and I think I did an okay job Of combating it last go-around. I added this like simple little red Skyscraper, buildings, background square thing in the background and it was definitely an afterthought So this time I wanted to make sure it was more incorporated into the illustration in some way so I use like the swish of her braid to like create half of a circle and then I drew the other half of the Circle around behind her and then put in a bunch of skyscrapers behind her. So like a cityscape And I actually rounded that off too because in the original illustration It was kind of like the skyscrapers are just pointing in random directions. It was very like illustrative in that way So I wanted to try and capture that again, basically this go-around I’m just trying to redo everything I did last time but with more purpose if that makes any sense Once I was happy with the sketch I just took my kneaded eraser and erase little bits of pieces at a time and then started going in with my Colored pencils and I started with the face because my life expectancy is too short to not eat my dessert first Okay, it’s my favorite part It started with like the bubblegum pink color to just add some blush and around the nose and the cheeks and then I think I found like I think it was the color slate or something and I used that to blend outwards and try to make her face look a little less like cloud white and a little bit more Skin Tonee in some way because in the original illustration, I didn’t have any skin tone except for the blush. So I wanted to definitely upgrade that this go around and try to add some actual skin tones and Then for things like the nostrils and the lips. I used a darker pink color And then for the most part I think I used the color mahogany for like all of the lines and the eyelashes and like her eyebrows I think I don’t know I use the colour mahogany a lot Like I used it to outline almost everything and funny funny story My pack of Crayola colored pencils doesn’t have a black in it I seem to have lost it somewhere along the way or I used it up I don’t know but so I couldn’t use the colour black for anything unless I wanted to use the crayon or the marker. So For any shading that you’ll see in the future that looks like black. It’s actually dark brown. Just a funny story here It looks black enough. So I I don’t really have a problem with it I kind of think I like it better because it’s like less harsh than the color black might be like a solid black So the dark brown worked really really well for that Happy little X and while looking at the sketching of the city skyline I liked it so much better this way than what it turns out bummer where I messed up with this So in the original illustration the city skyline Like I said was very much an afterthought and I kind of just threw it in there at the end and I used a lots Of yellows and reds so a very analogous color scheme for that. So I thought hey, I’ll do the exact same thing this go-around which Is okay like there’s nothing wrong with that. The problem was I definitely made the skyline background sort of thing a much bigger focal point than it originally was so the fact that there’s so much reds and yellows and Oranges in this background color kind of distracts from what the main element of this illustration Really should have been which if I had taken a step back and thought about it I would have realized this but in the original illustration Which I’ll get to later, which was still really really fun And I enjoyed making this part a lot was the rainbow braid So her hair is a rainbow gradient from yellow at the top sort of like a natural hair color and then it goes down loop to green at the bottom and like that was the point of the illustration in the original go around because Like I have all of these colors. I have a rainbow set of markers and I want to use all of them So the point was to use all of them and create that rainbow braid But because I put so much more time and made it a larger focal point. Like I said this analogous orange yellow and red the background it just drew so much more attention away from the braid than I would have liked and I’m going to but I think I will Photoshop I’ll just edit this illustration at the end and show you what I would have liked it to look like Like maybe with a more desaturated background. Yeah, that’ll be cool So stick to the end and I’ll show you like what I would do. I would have done differently With this illustration to make that braid stand out a bit better But I’m getting ahead of myself because we have even gotten to that part yet but Here, I’m just using the black magic marker and adding in the little details to address that were from the original illustration You know I’m just trying to make it look like her and I was a lot smarter two years ago because I knew oh I wanted that braid to contrast with her outfit and that’s why I made her outfit just black and white so that there were no colors to distract from the Braids like I was just talking about so Yeah, sometimes we just get Dumber with age oh And then I just filled in that like lower half of the circle with red For the background and then added polka dots to her skirts. That part’s really fun I enjoyed doing that, but then it looked a little too flat compared to the style of the rest of drawing So I’m using that dark brown like I mentioned earlier and adding some shading to the skirt I tried to when I added the polka dots like think of the fabric flowing so that like the patterns not gonna be straight across like if it’s a pattern of polka dots like it’ll Have been flow with the fabrics. I tried to think of it that way when I was doing it I don’t know if I did a very good job but adding the shading definitely helped with that and made it look a lot more soft and like an actual object in the environment Then I just finished up the shoes or boots or whatever they are I’m not entirely sure because in the original illustration they were just so simple I tried to add a little bit of details to them But I still didn’t make a decision on whether they were shoes or boobs. So Anyway now it’s time to do the braid. Finally. I started off with that mahogany colored pencil and started adding in some one like The Strokes and the lines to figure out where all the hairs would be and Then I went in with yellow glue I decided to start with yellow because I wanted to start with like a most natural hair color and then I Worked my way down the rainbow down to the bottom basically just switching out the colored pencil as I went Sometimes I would switch out the line color, but for the most part, I think I just used that. Mahogany Just cuz I liked it and it was staying sharp really well So I was like why why why ruin a good thing? Right and what I’m trying to avoid when doing this gradient is any sort of like harsh? Lines where like the color just changes abruptly to another color. So I’m trying to blend them out as much as possible so that means just taking the one color going a little bit past where maybe I’d want it to and then Grabbing the next color and going over that section again and blending those two colors together as they slowly smoothly change from one color to the next And you can already see here. How much her? Braids of her hair of the yellow orange in the red section is just blending in with that background skyscraper stuff Oh Like at this point it was too late Like there wasn’t really anything I could do about it. And I was noticing it that was making me look frumpy, but Another problem I did I guess but but the thing that I did that could have been helped this a little bit was maybe Starting the gradient higher up. Like I feel like somehow I spent way too much time and the oranges and the Reds just in her braids and by the time it gets to the blues and The greens it’s like it’s a very tip of the braid and I’d run out of room So if I’d done this differently I think I would have like planned out the sections a little better and like divided it more evenly Which might have helped a little bit with this? Orange problem this orange, red, yellow problem. We’re having oh and here I’m just going in with the Crayola markers and adding more definition to the braid since these colors are a lot bolder and darker They’re they contrast really well with the colored pencils So I did that throughout the whole braid and then to try to separate the girl character from that background that I made I went in with the black crayola marker and just basically surrounded her entire shape with a stroke This is just basically to separate her from it in some way like because the they said were blending so much it helped a little but Here’s what I would have done differently if I had thought about it from the get-go so here I went for the shop and I just adjusted the picture and I would definitely desaturate the background so here I just went all the way and just made it a full grayscale background and I like that and I actually made it the moon still yellow that way it’s just like a little bit. Well, it’s either the Sun or the moon I don’t know. It’s the Sun isn’t it? Yeah, I drew it. It’s the Sun I made the Sun yellow though and Made her head smaller just because I could I have this problem. I draw heads too big. It’s a situation I Know it’s a problem. So like I end up making the heads even smaller But then I stake a step back and I like the head still too big So it’s like wow, how big was I drawing heads before? Good grief. Anyway, this is how it actually turns out in reality I hope you enjoyed watching me play with some Crayola colored markers and pencils and things It was a lot of fun and it’s nice to just like do something for fun than it doesn’t need to be Stu serious, you know, and this always just reminds me of Being a kid again and just drawing pictures to make myself happy So, yeah There’s a lot of fun and let me know if you guys still use these markers for your drawings and what sort of things you Like to make with them Yeah, I want to thank you guys for watching and I hope you all have a delicious evening full of waffles! bye!

Proof How Important Professional Photography is for Your Airbnb Listing 😱


Hello my YouTube friends its richard
founder of short-term rentals secrets.com and Airbnb super host and
today we have the difficult task of adding value to Mary Kay Mary Kay was
kind enough to pay the $49 for her listing to be reviewed and I’ve taken a
quick peek at it and first off I just have to commend you I mean you’re doing
so many things so incredibly well I think we all have a lot to learn here
and so I’m gonna try and add as much value to you so that you get your
money’s worth and it’s probably more in the form of questions but for everyone
else like this is an ideal listing she’s doing so many things so incredibly well
so let’s go through and review we’re gonna do it in six steps the first is
where we’re gonna look at the title then we take a look at the photos and the
order of those photos the third is the thumbnail that she’s selected the fourth
is the description how she describes the property then we’ll take a look at the
listing reviews the people that have stayed what do they have to say about
Mary Kay as a host in her place and then finally we’ll take a look at the pricing
so let’s get into the very first thing which is the title and here Mary Kay
you’ve selected something that I think has a lot of meaning to you and it’s
actually descriptive but I don’t think it sells the dream and so I think that
the best opportunity for you based on all the photos and everything we’ll talk
about those is probably the headline the title itself has room for improvement we
will find out as we look through the rest of the listing that there is a
reason this is the alpaca cottage gracious comfort I think is nice and
something that we all appreciate an eclectic charm that’s a little bit
off-putting and I don’t find your place eclectic at all I find it really really
desirable I find it very luxurious I find it very serene I find it very
peaceful I find this working farm component of it where you talk about the
alpaca extremely interesting and so I kind of wonder if the title is leading
to the fact and we’ll talk about a little later that it looks like a lot of
your calendars open it could be the location it could be the pricing it
could just be the title because everyone who’s staying at your place really seems
to love it so I would try and change the title and I
would include things like a serene Oasis slash organic working farm or you know
that whole like farm-to-table movement people are really into knowing where
everything is coming from you might even highlight that you have a
working form you have the alpacas and the Roosters and the hens and you’ve got
the eggs and you’ve got all that other amazing stuff but gracious comfort
doesn’t mention it cottage doesn’t include that an eclectic charm certainly
doesn’t include that so I think if we can sell the dream of people coming to
this serene working farm you might get people to visit that aren’t staying in
Decatur or looking for Decatur or attending you know Emory so I think this
is maybe more of a vacation opportunity or a retreat opportunity than it is a
traditional college visiting opportunity so I think that there’s a little bit of
work that can be done on the title if you want to go ahead and post it when we
give you this link feedback ideas I’ll be happy to you know go back and forth
with you until we find a working title and as often is the case I don’t know
that we’re gonna nail it immediately you might have to do a/b testing and have
two or three different titles that you test until we see which one’s getting
the most clicks and then we don’t really care about clicks as much as we care
about conversions which title is getting us most bookings so I think that’s an
opportunity for you turning to the photos I mean they’re
spectacular honestly you know exactly what it is that you’re doing I don’t
think I’ve ever seen a night shot as a title shot it looks like it’s like low
exposure slow the sky is lit up in blue and the orange and pink in the sky and
the night lights and the path lights I mean it’s just it’s absolutely gorgeous
and I think you’ve done a terrific job with all your photos I’m not going to go
ahead and comment on all of them because they’re a lot and they’re beautiful but
I am gonna go ahead and and scroll through them so these viewers of this
video get the benefit of your terrific photography the other thing that I want
to highlight is you’ve done a great job of very lengthy to
descriptions that are different for each photo you’re telling the story you’re
not just putting the photo up there you’re talking about warm welcoming and
wonderful tucked in a grove of Georgia Pines and surrounded by perennial
vegetable and natural die gardens the Decatur I’ll pack a cottage offers
gracious comfort with high-end amenities okay so for that title this whole thing
about tucked in a grove of Georgia Pines and surrounded by perennial vegetable
natural die gardens work towards that that’s what you’re selling right the
fact that it’s called alpaca cottage not so meaningful and you seem to like the
gracious comfort I’m not opposed to it but I think it’s not the best place in
the title so this is absolutely beautiful
I love the the tray with it looks like some sort of little snacks and the
windows are open and the light is great and everything is just clean and perfect
and that’s a constant theme throughout I love the drone shot I’ve encouraged them
in the past but here you can see just how well-kept pardon me just how
well-kept and well-manicured the landscaping is it’s clear that you take
great pride in this and that’s important again you use the exact same sort of
wording here I would change it a little bit talk about what we’re looking at a
quarter acre a half acre organic I don’t know compost whatever it is that you’re
using and doing talk about that you’re going to attract people that want to
come to a working form that uses natural compost biodegradable horse manure
whatever it is that you do talk about that not that it’s nestled we already
covered that here’s a alpaca which is great and playful this breakfast looks
unbelievable I mean it’s just great now what I’m not clear about is do you offer
that for a guest if if you don’t it’s a little bit misleading if you do then you
definitely want to highlight the fact that like that’s available at an
additional cost or whatever I mean it’s just spectacularly decorated very
well-appointed very clean I love the barn door I love the paint
over here you’re attracting a certain type of person they’re going to
appreciate it I love the throw I love the way it’s folded I like the way it’s
over the ottoman you clearly have an eye for decoration
and for the style and it’s working really well I love the fact that you’ve
got the light plate painted in the light itself I mean just all these little
details that many people don’t get you’re nailing and I just think it’s
great so I want to highlight that for other people I love the fact that you’ve
got five stars on everything and I don’t know if you did this before but we’ve
been suggesting in our videos previously to go ahead and you know boast a little
bit talk about like what this is and and show people what other people think the
living room is amazing I love it the one thing that I might add is
something with a little bit of color perhaps either on this end table here or
on the center here it looks like you have a fern down low and then some dried
plants up here but maybe a you know if I had to be super critical some greenery
somewhere other than down low would be helpful I love the fact that you talked
about that you’ve got Roku and flatscreen and it’s an 1800s porch I
mean you’re telling a story it’s really compelling I absolutely love it heck I
might even come down in Decatur just to check out this place because it’s really
spectacular the kitchen is great it’s very well appointed I’m not exactly sure
what’s past here it looks like the the door is frosted so you can’t see through
it it looks like maybe just a path but you might want to just say like your own
private path leading to whatever but very nicely appointed this is a
beautiful photo with the flowers I assume these are local flowers from like
your garden if if they are highlight that the cheese course looks great the
wine the decanter again you really clearly know what it is that you’re
doing and this is fabulous I’m not sure that the cork and the wine bottle really
adds any value if I were gonna shoot it again which I don’t think you need to I
would probably remove it more alpacas and then there’s you know more working
farm you talk about the names of people and it’s evident that you really care
and you’re attracting the right people right people that are going to be drawn
to this are really going to like all these photos and it’s great
sheering day before and after it’s interesting you might want to include
when shearing happens if I was a parent and I was traveling and I wanted to
teach my children about it that might be like a really interesting trip like
we’re gonna go to Decatur we’re gonna go to this working alpaca farm they do the
sheering on whatever the third week in January I’m just making this up probably
not but whenever it is talk about it so that people can say this is what I want
to do and this is what’s amazing here’s pretty much the exact same photo taken
during the day and while it’s an absolutely lovely photo the magic really
occurred at that like the right time that you took that night shot with the
garden lit up and everything and you can just see it I mean it’s a great photo I
love this photo but the other one was just special and spectacular dick jr. is
a French black copper Moran one of the more colorful chickens on the farm ‘let
he sure is or I guess it’s he colorful the one question that I have when I look
at this and I looked in your description so I’ll just cover it here you know I
live in New York City we don’t really have chickens and hens and roosters and
stuff like that but when I’ve traveled and I’ve traveled an awful lot they
generally tend to make a lot of noise at like 500 at Oh 500 right that’s sort of
like that whole rooster thing so are these guys waking everybody up or if not
if they’re not roosters are they whatever they’re kept way off premises
you might want to include that in the description and maybe even here because
as interesting as it is if I’m coming out there for a retreat and relaxation I
don’t know that I want to even contemplate being woken up at 5:00 in
the morning by dick junior or pepper and you know again I’m showing my ignorance
maybe they’re nothing but I think highlighting it and assuming nothing
making sure people feel comfortable would be great this guy’s super cool
poofy peckerhead that’s my guy that Charlie chicks the eggs are amazing
they’re fresh eggs available for purchase according to availability
that’s super cool I love that I love the the sticker and the name and the
different colors I mean you’re really really doing it this photo I think
proved it’s it’s not in focus it’s very hard to read so just shoot another one
here’s a little eat-in kitchen you’re using Meyers clean stuff which we
recommend and we highlight and we recommend that so that’s good everything
looks really nice and clean here and I don’t have a lot to add a quiet writers
retreat I would love to come down there and write here it is at night I mean
it’s just absolutely beautiful here you do talk about the sounds of the chickens
going to roost again there’s a fine line between something being really like nice
and lovely for a short period of time and or it becoming annoying or
disturbing and so you may be immune to it what you find to be really soothing
and them going to roost might be really disturbing to somebody who’s looking to
write a book so you might need to quantify that a little bit more or
address the fact that they’re not roosters or I don’t really know how
you’re gonna do it but again you’re trying to attract people and while I’m
drawn to this working farm nature of it it would be helpful for me to know that
I could like sleep in this photo I think is actually your weakest photo where the
colors are a little muted and overexposed but I get the point and it
doesn’t detract from it but if you ever had butterflies again you could probably
reshoot this one and it’s just you know the clematis and the Mexican petunia
it’s lovely it’s absolutely gorgeous I love this porch the screened-in porch
you talk about morning coffee if you were gonna shoot it again let’s get some
morning coffee out there let’s get I don’t know a magazine or something a
book a throw I don’t know it’s just but it’s gorgeous I mean I can totally see
myself having a cup of coffee there and this breakfast place is fantastic I love
the wrought iron the door and the chandelier just super cool and then you
talk about the rocking chairs this is new I love this this is a guess a
greenhouse I don’t know what you what you have growing in there but you might
want to talk about the greenhouse a little bit and again if you were going
to shoot this again I might set the table a little bit or put
wineglasses out or cheese course or something just to show it like in in
action a little bit and then this photo I’m not sure it’s clear that you know
what you’re doing you’ve got unbelievable camera equipment and gear
but showing the photo of the camera on the tripods a little bit pod and you
don’t actually show the photo of the table dressed so those two I think you
could work a little bit and then here we talked about the organic heritage
vegetables and fruits and flowers and so on it looks like it’s sort of between
seasons you might want to take this again when it’s in full bloom when
there’s all sorts of stuff and then talk about what it is that you’re looking at
and you know somebody could taste one of your Tomatoes or something you might
want to highlight that again I really love the the drone shots and I love the
fact that you’re leading and suggesting that they could use it for an intimate
wedding or an event or anything like that if you do do those if we released a
video recently that’s said to charge more for those it’s perfectly fine
people that are throwing a wedding are going to be able to afford a significant
bump up versus what you know two people come in to stay at your place would
afford and there’s a lot more damage and wear and tear and risk and liability so
be sure that you’re being smart and profitable this photo is out of focus as
well and you know I think it adds value that it shows that you care and your
host it’s very difficult to read the writing here as you can see like it’s
almost impossible so I don’t know if you have to crop the photo a little bit and
that’s it so in a nutshell the photos are fantastic I absolutely love them I
had to really struggle to find anything to add value but we found a few things
and you know given the quality of the rating I’m impressed I was even able to
help and I hope it is helpful so let’s turn to the thumbnail I love the
thumbnail you nailed the thumbnail I want to go stay there like literally I’m
gonna pack my bag and I’m coming down and I’m gonna check out your working
farm and the alpaca and have a cup of tea on that back porch and the thumbnail
with the sky and the night lights and everything else is perfect I wouldn’t
change a thing great job turning to the description
so the first thing I want to say is I love the way that you highlight the
proximity and it’s just far enough away it’s sort of painting that picture
convenient to Emory we talked about sort of telling people like where you are and
when they might use you I’m not sure what CDC is or Mercer maybe they have
meaning if I was staying in those locations likely but don’t assume
anything right like just you might want to spell it out or explain what it is
you’ve talked about the luxuries and the bedding and the fully stocked kitchen
the charm and I think these are all great I absolutely love the description
you also talk about who it’s good for it’s perfect for a couple and business
travelers film and intimate events and weddings it’s friendly I think it’s
really really well-thought-out it’s evident you’ve put a lot of time and
energy into it it’s evident that you’re a skilled writer and you know what
you’re trying to paint so that’s fantastic you talk about new
improvements I think that’s really cool but I might put this sort of specific
stuff about your working farm higher up right it’s really important somebody who
does not want to be near or around alpacas or the different you know
chickens and so on or doesn’t care about the vegetables or anything else may not
be happy they’re as comfortable as it is it’s pretty evident that that’s you know
all encompassing and you’re you can’t really escape it so you don’t want them
there and the flipside is somebody like me that finds that super interesting and
intriguing I want more of that information I want even more detail I
want to know what kind of varieties how many different types of tomatoes
heirloom tomatoes we won the prize here’s a photo of the tomatoes like
really play that up you do a great job with the alpacas and the chickens and so
on you don’t do I don’t think enough with the farm-to-table aspect of it
there’s a huge movement so many people are interested in like eating good food
and not that they’re gonna eat your food but they’re connecting with somebody who
cares about that same sort of thing so this sort of paragraph where you talk
about the azalea’s the hydrangeas the various gardens let’s expand on it and
move I think here we go working urban farm
lit which is a small farm and once again we talk much more about the the animals
and we do anything else it’s a very thorough listing it’s a very detailed
listing it talks about the size of the memory foam mattress cool aloe gel
memory foam mattress that sounds quite comfortable we talk about the vintage
and it’s just you know it’s it’s thoughtful unfortunately I don’t think
people are gonna read this much but between the photos that they do read in
your descriptions underneath that and so on I think they’ll get the the gist of
it and this is sort of my point like this to me needs to be way higher up our
hens lay daily for the majority of the ear so we can usually accommodate guests
request for fresh organic eggs a guest said these eggs are so delicious you can
taste the love that’s about I don’t know three pages into the description that
needs to be upfront who doesn’t like eggs and even if you don’t eat eggs you
want to know that there’s like cool eggs and other guests love them so anyway I
think that this is fantastic I think you’ve done really well I think you’re
smart to include all of your social media stuff I haven’t seen what you do
there but I’m gonna check it out I think if the if you keep interesting things
socially there that’s actually a really great opportunity for you to grow your
business and get repeat business and I think it’s super cool interaction
with the guests I get other things to note I’m again you just do a very very
thoughtful time the cottage is very well equipped for leisure business travel a
recent guest commented any time we thought of something we needed we
realize you had already thought of it you go on about all the different
coffees I mean it’s you take this really seriously it’s really impressive you are
a super host I believe yep you’re a super host and you deserve it you’re
doing great work however I think there’s a little bit of room for improvement and
I’m gonna get to that in a second here when we take a look at your reviews five
stars on everything I’m not surprised at all I love the fact that you respond to
every single one and with personality and with specifics you mentioned
by name and their long and detailed so that’s fantastic and everybody just
loves everything so I’m not surprised by it in the least you know exactly what it
is that you’re doing and it looks like you’re doing really well in September
you had four people post reviews and in October you’ve had a couple three
already four already so I don’t know whether these are coming in you know a
week or two delayed but it seems like you’ve been really busy in the fall
which is fantastic and then it looks like the summer may have been slower and
I just don’t know if that’s a seasonal thing August was good I don’t know if
that’s a seasonal thing or you guys took it off or you were doing the
construction but it seems to me like you could be busier and that’s where we’re
turning to now which is the pricing of a hundred dollars per night when I take a
look at your availability it looks like October sold out and/or blocked
November looks like you have a fair amount of availability and you you’re
clearly using some sort of smart pricing I don’t know if it’s beyond pricing or
if it’s Airbnb but you’re clearly using something and that I think is really
intelligent and December is wide open and January is partially blocked I don’t
know if you’ve started blocking because then in February have no availability of
March none and so on so it’s possible that you’re only taking say 90 days of
bookings which may suit you I’m not sure that there’s a real benefit to doing
that but if that’s the way you like to do it that’s fine but it strikes me as
an opportunity to have more business I mean excuse me in the months of November
and December and what I can’t tell is whether it’s your pricing is off like is
this the slow season and you need to reduce your pricing do people not come
here during this period of time if you are close to Emory and Mercer and CDC
and whatever else and it’s also a great get away from those you know from the
city life or whatever maybe you need to shift your marketing so that in the
slower periods of November and December in January you’re getting business you
should at least be selling out on the weekends and maybe you will but it seems
to me like this is a fantastic place you’re not necessarily getting as much
business as I think you should and I’m not sure why I think you
should really be doing a lot more a couple of thoughts on the pricing also
as I try and find it here is I’m not a huge fan of flexible cancellations but
if it works for you then that’s fine I’ve said this before I’m not a huge fan
of weekly discounting at all and even less of a fan of monthly discounting if
you’re in the short-term rental space don’t be looking to rent for a month
you’re just giving away money out of your pocket that discount is your profit
literally your cost of doing business are the exact same if you give somebody
a 33% discount you don’t get a 33% discount on your expenses your cost of
goods sold is the exact same yet your revenue is lower therefore your profits
are lower somebody who wants to stay at a working farm and write a book is
likely able to afford the entire amount or they’ll be there for two weeks and
somebody else will come in for two weeks so since you’re doing it for profit I
don’t recommend that I think your cleaning fee is light I don’t know how
long it takes to clean this little cottage but if you figure $20 an hour 15
$20 an hour’s the working sort of wage you’re saying that this takes three to
four hours and I’d be surprised if you could clean that entire house and make
the beds as impeccable as it is and as clean as it shows in that amount of time
so I think you have room for cleaning fees I love the fact that you charge
more twenty-five dollars per night after two guests I think that’s really smart
and the security deposit seems a little bit light to me but you know I’m not
gonna get too hung up on that anyway Mary Kay you know exactly what it is
that you’re doing you’re killing it you’re doing a great job I’d like to see
you get even more business I’d like to see you get rid of your discount so you
make more profit I’d like to see you take if you had the interest and you
seem to be like into real estate and farms and decor and decorating and
renovating and building new areas I’d love to see you expand your business you
have a real talent here and I think if you were to take this one
Airbnb and start to save the income from it and put it towards a second Airbnb
that would be a fantastic opportunity for you and your family again it may not
be something you’re interested in but clearly you have the skill set in the
talent and I would encourage you to pursue it
so I hope you found this helpful this is one of the most thorough and and really
perfect listings I’ve seen thus far so kudos to you Mary Kay and for the rest
of us this is something that we can like shoot for and if you want your listing
reviewed go ahead and leave us a comment below
I hope you’ve enjoyed this I hope that you will liked the video and most
importantly if you haven’t subscribed to the video let’s see I can and say it if
you haven’t subscribed to the YouTube channel
please do me a favor I’d really appreciate that until then happy hosting

How to Style a Birthday Cake | How a Food Stylist Decorates the Perfect Layer Cake | Well Done

How to Style a Birthday Cake | How a Food Stylist Decorates the Perfect Layer Cake | Well Done


– Anybody that tells you
one container of frosting for one cake, they’re totally full of it. There’s no way that’s the right ratio. I’m a food stylist. Consider me, a makeup artist for food. I take boring everyday average food and make it look amazing. I’m gonna show you how I
style a classic birthday cake and get that perfect slice out. (tongue clicking) (upbeat music) Deserts, especially cakes, are one of the most
recognized foods to style. They’re elegant and beautiful,
they make a statement and everybody loves cake. The first thing when making
a beautiful photo ready cake is to have perfectly even layers. So I have a bread knife and my cake layer and I’m just gonna start trimming also these cake layers
were baked off yesterday and once they were completely cooled, after baking, they were stored in the
refrigerator overnight. That really helps with trimming your cake and also, when it’s time to ice it, if your cake layers are cool. Looks good! We’re making a three layer cake today, so I’m gonna trim my next two layers and we’ll move onto the next step. I have two pedestals. This is my prop pedestal that’s
gonna go on our photo set and then this is a rotating pedestal that will help me ice the cake. So I’m just gonna double stack this guy. (Rishon imitates siren wailing) It’s no secret that food stylists use prepackaged food sometimes. And in this instance, today I’m going to use a ready
made, store bought frosting. It is a temperature controlled
shelf stable product so I don’t have to worry about it melting or getting too cold. I’m gonna put just a
small bit of the frosting onto the cake pedestal. This is going to hold
my cake in place for me. I’m just going to make
sure it’s off center so that way, when I go to
take my slice out of the cake, you won’t see that chocolate
frosting on the cake pedestal. For the bottom layer, I’m gonna put my baked side on the bottom. I have an ice cream scoop
which is going to help me make sure that each layer that I fill has an equal amount of frosting. I’m just gonna plurp
that right down there. See how awesome it is
that I’m doing this cake on this spinning pedestal? I can just really hold
my spatula in one place and then spin my pedestal. This one I’m going to
put the trimmed side down on top of the cake. I have to say that a yellow
cake with chocolate buttercream is my all time favorite cake. Comment below and let me know
what you’re favorite cake is or what your birthday cake of choice is. Holy tall cake Batman! I’m gonna add a little, one
scoop of frosting to the top. And then we’re gonna
work on our crumb coat which is gonna just be a
light coat of the frosting on the outside of the cake. Putting a crumb coat on a
cake really allows you to have that barrier between
your raw cake layers that can flake off any
moment into your frosting. It also allows me to make sure that my cake layers are evenly stacked. If they’re not you will
definitely be able to tell with the placement of your frosting. We’re gonna let this cake
chill in the refrigerator for about 15 or 20 minutes. Just so this crumb coat sets. So we’re just gonna take this away. While our cake is chilling
in the refrigerator, we are gonna take a brief
moment to talk about sprinkles. When I think birthday
cake, I definitely think, good old fashioned, party mix sprinkles, multicolor, fun, woot, woot woo! But there’s nothing wrong
with getting super creative and making your own sprinkle mix which is what I would like
to do for this birthday cake. So I’m gonna take these little pearls that are all these beautiful multicolors. We’re gonna do a heavy base of those because these are kinda my favorite. So it’s got these sanding
sugars in there too which gives it a little bit of a sparkle. This sprinkle is called a jimmy, J-I-M-M, is it ie, i? I don’t know, jimmy, look him up. And then the little flake,
that’s called confetti. Who knew that sprinkles
had different names? Well, now you do. You can just add as much as you want or as little as you want. I’m gonna add all the
pink, boop, boom, done. Okay, we have our beautiful
homemade sprinkle mix. Magic explosion, that’s the name. Done, Rishon’s magical
explosion sprinkle mix. All right, our cake has
chilled, the crumb coat is set. I just wanna quickly talk to you about a couple of tools that I have. Which I’m probably not gonna use today but they’re really fun and super easy to use
when decorating a cake. So I have some plastic spatulas. This one in particular,
if you hold it like this, it creates that straight side. If you want to smooth
your edges of your cake so you would basically turn it and hold it and you would smooth your cake that way. This plastic spatula creates
striations on your cake so you have a finer side over here and then a thicker side over here. This spatula has four different sides, you have a straight side here. It has this ridged side here, this and then another one here. I think today we’re gonna do a little bit of a natural homemade look to this cake. I’m gonna add parchment paper
sheets around the outside of the cake on the pedestal. This is just gonna help in
case I make a wicked mess. Now I’m taking the frosting and I’m going to the base of the cake. While I’m turning the cake pedestal, I’m also bringing the spatula
in a semicircle motion back towards me. Which just helps get that
frosting really even. This is like, either
a, super boring for you or b, super relaxing for you. Comment and let us know which you prefer. She’s not perfect, she’s not
a wedding cake by any means. But I think it looks really nice. It reminds me of a homemade birthday cake. And that’s exactly what we’re going for. I’m gonna show you one
more cool little trick to do with your frosting. Right now, it’s definitely
glossy but it is not super shiny. So I have a torch here
that I use all the time in my food styling. And basically what we’re gonna do is heat up one of my offset spatulas and take it around the side of the cake like I’ve done before, and it makes a pretty
awesome transformation. Every time you go to do this, you wanna make sure that
your spatula is clean because every time you
heat it up, obviously, it will cook the frosting
onto your spatula which is not very fun. I’m gonna go ahead and
remove my parchment paper and also just go back
over with my paintbrush. I’m gonna add sprinkles on top. I’m trying not to make a
total mess but you know what, sometimes that’s just life. We’ve got our sprinkles, so now I’m gonna show you guys how I get my perfect slice of cake. The first thing is you
just wanna make sure that you have a really sharp knife and obviously it needs to be long enough to cut through the entire cake. And secondly, you wanna have on hand, either a cloth or a paper towel to clean your knife off with. And it probably won’t hurt to
have something damp around too just in case you can’t get
the knife completely clean. All right, moment of truth people, just gonna wiggle it, wiggle
wiggle, wiggle wiggle. All right I’m going over to the plates. (plates clunk) Sprinkle madness! Woo, look how pretty, it’s so even, those layers are gorgeous. Okay, I’m gonna show you guys
how I clean up a cake slice which is exactly the way
that we’re gonna clean up the inside of the cake too. So we’re going back over and
we’re picking up that chocolate that was dragged through
the cake layer by the knife. That’s sort of an inevitable
thing that happens. It’s inevitable and if you have any crumbs that got into your icing layer, you can pick those up too. It’s not completely perfect, you can definitely still see a little bit, but it definitely looks a lot better than when I first sliced it. Obviously, we can kinda
do a before and after with my second slice. And if you have any marks that look weird you can just go back
over with your paintbrush to smooth that out. If you can see, here and here, there’s these pull marks from the knife so you can just take your paintbrush and just sort of smooth that out. If either on the inside
cake or on a cake slice happens to have a hole, I just stuffed that hole with
a piece of the yellow cake. I’m gonna spend just a little more time getting super perfectionist
on these cake slices and this cake and then I’m gonna show you a really fun birthday party
setup that we’ve got going on. All right you guys, this setup looks great we have a total party
scene going on back here. Birthday party, not the
other kind of party, but it looks really fun and festive. I’m gonna let our photographer
get a couple of beauty shots of this after I light those candles. And then we’re gonna
let the rest of our crew eat this delicious chocolate cake because I know they’ve

happy unbirthday to me, make sure you go on YouTube and follow Well Done, like, comment, subscribe and tell me what you want to
see me food style next time. A very happy unbirthday to me! To you? A very happy unbirthday to me. To you!
