What better way to begin the new year by taking a Michael deMeng class!  The adventure begins with a supply list:  Kroma Crackle; Elmer's glue, white ACRYLIC LATEX caulk; Modern Options Rusting and Bronzing kits; Great Stuff foam insulation; wood glue; shellac; polymer gloss or matte medium; clear gel medium; micaceous iron oxide paint from Golden; Aves Apoxy clay; masking tape; cheese cloth; white acrylic paint and a few other colors.  (The Aves Apoxy clay and the Kroma Crackle were the biggest challenges to find.)  Next I had to learn how to navigate the class site with super secret passwords.  (Successfully accomplished without too much damage to my psyche.)  Now I have to make time to keep up with the videos and the messages from class members on the specially created Yahoo Group.  Here's my Crusty, Crumbled and Cracked Katrina:
