Decorate the Backstreet Basketball Court!

Glorious graffiti required on Smeet!Sorry, but that face creeps me right out. Do better.Sorry, but that face creeps me right out. Do better.

Graffiti is an art form that can be found almost everywhere, particularly in urban environments. Some of it can be ugly and not really that creative (taggers, we're looking at you), but there is also undoubtedly some awesome street art done by graffiti artists all around the world!

Hip Hop counts the graffiti scene as one of its many subcultures, and although it seems there will always be controversies surrounding it amongst city officials and law enforcement, there are loads of street artists and supporters who see it as a way of brightening up our sometimes dull cities.

There are loads of different types and styles of graffiti; it is a rapidly developing art form whose value is unfortunately often highly contested and reviled by the authorities. In our case, however, the Smeet City Administration seem to have taken something of a progressive approach! They've asked you to embellish the grey and dull Backstreet Basketball Court. As a well-known graffiti artist who's won your fair share of prizes, you are the obvious choice!

Fulfill the wishes of the administration and create an awesome graffiti backdrop for the basketball court, making it THE public space that everyone wants to hang out at!

The movie should be about 1 minute 30 seconds to 3 minutes in length, and it should be filmed in at least one Smeet room! Creativity is everything here!

The rewards for the challenge? Precious Smeet Spring Game Points, so let's try and get ourselves off to the best possible start!

1st prize: 3 Smeet Spring Game Points

2nd prize: 2 Smeet Spring Game Points

3rd prize: 1 Smeet Spring Game Point

 

The movie should be uploaded on YouTube and then the link should be sent to eventsen [at] smeet [dot] com by Sunday 9th April at 8 p.m (U.S. East Coast time).

On Monday, 10th April we will reveal the results, so get thinking, people!

Create some Waxy Wonders in the Candle Atelier!

The newest business in Smeet is so HOT RIGHT NOWWho else had to google the word 'atelier'? French was never my strong point...Who else had to google the word 'atelier'? French was never my strong point...

Who likes candles? Let's be honest, sometimes it's nice to set the mood with a few natural flames! Or maybe you are one of those weird people that likes moving their finger through the flame. I never saw the fun in that...

So have you ever created a candle yourself? Turns out it´s actually not that difficult! All you need is the following:

- Shashlik skewer

- Candle wick

- A heat resistant vessel were you can drill in a small hole at the bottom

- Candle wax (or alternatively, stearin)

- Decorations

- 2 pots for a water bath

 

INSTRUCTIONS!

Clean the vessel and put the candle wick into a bit of liquid wax, before threading it through the small hole that you drilled into the vessel. Fasten the candle wick with some more wax so that no liquid wax runs through the small hole. Fasten the other end of the candle wick with a piece of shashlik skewer and lay the skewer across the vessel in order to make sure the wick is straight inside the candle.

Put the wax in one of the pots, and put it in a water bath to melt it slowly (make sure the water isn´t boiling). If you use Stearin just take a look at the instructions on the package! Place the vessel with your fixed wick on a something protective to make sure nothing spills on the table! Put a small amount of wax into the vessel, let it cool down a bit and, again, make sure nothing is running through the small hole. Then you can fill the whole vessel with the wax, keeping some to fill the small pit that can emerge around the wick - just fill it up when the candle is dry!

When your candle is dry, just cut out the knot and remove the shashlik skewer. If you can´t get the candle out of the vessel, just pop it in the fridge for a while! Now you can decorate it with whatever you want!

So now that you are a real pro at this, you have the opportunity to open your very own Candle Atelier right here on Smeet! Create some new, awesome scented candles and fulfill your costumers' wishes! What's more, flourishing ateliers should look out for further orders in the future!
