My internet buddy and I decided to jump in with both feet and meet in person with two days of drinks, giggles and crafting. It was just the greatest experience. There's a lot of weirdos on the internet, and apparently that's just my type ;) Seriously! I love all of you nuts.
I was trying to think up a craft we could do together and when Paula mentioned wanting to see Mad Max I knew exactly what to do.
We disassembled, reassembled, and glued this to that. It was serious business!
Then a good coat of matte black spray paint. As soon as that paint is on there, things start to take shape and we felt like total bad asses!
Finally we added layers and layers of colour. I am absolutely thrilled with how these turned out.
Such a fun project that really lends itself to being messy and just enjoying the process of making and tinkering.
The final pieces are sort of Mad Max meets Geiger meets DeMeng and I'm crazy about all of those things so I'm a-ok with that.
Here's Paula's fantastic contraption...
Isn't it just so great? And she claims she's not a crafter! Pffft!
I am particularly smitten with this car because it lights up and makes vrooomy noises.
Such a fun project. Such a good time.
Yay for internet strangers that become good buddies.
These are sooo amazing! I love the in progress pics because I GOTTA try this!!!ReplyDelete
Love 'em! Glad you had a great time!ReplyDelete
And neither of us were murdered to death by meeting a stranger from the internet! Go us!!!ReplyDelete
No murdering to death, only sustaining! lolDelete
I love it!!! You two looked like you were meant to meet!! Glad you both were brave! Good for you, now what is your next project going to be. It will have to be something pretty cool to beat these cars!!! Totally BADASS!ReplyDelete
We were so brave! lol It was really great fun. And I have no idea what to do next to top these... I think they are pretty darned cool.Delete
hahahaha - love them! what fun! I also am a big fan of "Mad Max" and Michael DeMeng! We should have an old fashioned 'car rally!' and show them off. LOL It's nice to see work injected with a good dose of fun and humor!ReplyDelete
A car rally would be amazing! Maybe I should organize a virtual one. HA!Delete
I've never seen the movie but looks like you two ladies had a fantastic time. So great that you's got to meet and spend time together and that neither of you's are serial killers. Love the cars and I must show them to my grandson. He will love them as he's always going to the dollar store and re-doing guns and armor. Give him a few guns, swords or whatever a few cans of spray paint and he's a happy guy. Great job!ReplyDelete
Your grandson sounds like my type of kid! I bet he makes amazing things.Delete
Ok. . .I am STUNNED! Look, I know you are a high level mage with all sorts of tricks up your long Stevie Nicks sleeves (heehee) but seriously??? These are outrageously fun and beyond cool! A trip to the dollar store turns into some serious magic! Always inspiring and always surprising. That's why I love ya! :)ReplyDelete
When you have some down time (hysterical, I know) you should totally make an entire rally race worth. Perhaps a set of exploration vehicles for your world. I'd love to see what you'd come up with! And I love you right back.Delete
Wow - those are so cool. LOVE the cars and that you got your items from the dollar store.ReplyDelete
What kind of glue did you use - glue gun or something else?
We tried crazy-glue but it didn't go well so we went with hot glue. You wouldn't be able to get too rough with them, but it'll hold things in place well enough.Delete
