Michael deMeng's Holy Roller class was the absolute BEST class I've ever taken. Michael isn't just a talented artist--he is a born teacher. From his IPod's background music, through his perception and sensitivity to his funny, present humor, he's simply superb. Our day was spent taking Hot Wheels (yep, you're correct, that would be children's toy cars), altering them then practicing Michael's "recipes" for acrylic washes. The finale was a race of all of our cars with a deMeng Holy Roller original as prize. My "Lady etc." piece came in a respectable 4th. Depicted here are: "The Race," my "Our Lady of Perpetual Process" piece which is not yet painted and my Practice Piece which was quickly assembled so I could play with Michael's wash recipes. Thanks to Georgia and Terrece at Stampers' Warehouse for a memorable day.

Jood, I know it was a great class and I love the idea of all the cars speeding down the ramp. Thaniks for sharing the pictures.

I didn't realize that ya'll acutally raced them! I think that is so cool! Definitely keeps the integrity of the cars themselves going!
