Synopsis:

Assemblage ole

Bring your artistic yearnings and sense of adventure along on a journey to the land of Dusty Diablos. Inspiration seeps from every page, and inside here you'll find: a tasty mix of ancient folklore (from the ancient metropolis of Teotihuac?n to the miracle witnessed by Juan Diego); colorful pop culture (who knew that Western-Horror was its own film genre or that there's an entire island overrun with misfit dolls?) and informative art-making how-tos (like the Tricky Burnt Paper Routine and crafting your own Nicho). Join author Michael deMeng on an artist's pilgrimage south of the border and experience a culture as rich as it is beautiful and as genuine and down-to-earth as it is humorous and fascinating. While being mesmerized by all the amazing assemblage pieces, you also learn such nifty things as:

Mixing up Michael's favorite paint washes to achieve rusty results in your own work

Crafting your own slithering serpent

Creating miniature story boxes

Aging bottle caps with beer and so much more

Indulge your senses and come along for a trip through crowded marketplaces, a thrilling taxicab ride and the intoxicating festivities of Dia de los Muertos and discover the allure of Dusty Diablos. You might not want to leave.

Synopsis:

The artwork featured in "Dusty Diablos" is tied into deMeng's love of Latin-American culture, including not only ancient folklore but colorful pop-culture as well.

If you're a closet crafter, a beginner, or an intermediate, this book is for you. It's steps far beyond the "Crafty Chica" and was just was I was looking for, being a new Steampunk convert. The photos and anecdotes are outstanding. The book is inspirational and practical. You'll see . . . just try to put it down once you get between the pages!
