Krampus Exchange with the Michael deMeng Workshop Junkies

For the first time I joined the annual Krampus exchange with the Michael deMeng Workshop Junkies.  This creative group of people meet at various locations and on-line to be trained by the man I call Master, Oh My Master.

In a weird coincidence, my Krampus was sent to California to Lois Inman Engle who was busy making and sending this Krampus to me.  Thank you, Lois.

My Krampus started with a Slim Jim advertising mug that I bought at an antique store in Cedarburg, WI.

With some Aves clay I was able to Krampus up the face and add the needed horns.

Then comes the fun part:  layers of paint.

It was at this point that I realized I might have created a Krampus paint brush holder for Lois so I decided to add some Paint Brushes Gone Bad in the style of Master, Oh My Master.

And so, to all my exchange buddies and the very special Lois--Happy Holiday Season!

  1. When does the exchange get announced? I've not seen it. Would love to participate. We met in WI when you organized the class with Michael. I just signed up for Mineral Point this year. Can't wait.
