deMeng's Shades of Alchemy iPhone App Available NOW!

Okay, this was a chore and a half but after several months of work, my iPhone/iPad Shades of Alchemy App is available for purchase.  I am really really really really excited and am super pleased with the way this sucker turned out...with a little help from a computer guru and a graphic designer buddy, I got this puppy to press.

So let me give you a little tour.
The primary function of this App is to give instruction on some of the cool color washes I've developed over the years.   That's right...the world famous "Uszhhh" is in there plus quite a few new concoctions.
I've included a total of 19 paint recipes:
 Ranging from Blue Barnacles to Very Van Gogh to UnDead Red....Sookie!

 I've also included step by step instructions and tips for these effects.  
But wait, you want got it!  I've included a number of videos to help you along the way.  Roughly about 30 minutes of instruction.
Now as with my first free App you can keep up on my teaching schedule as well as my blog post. 
 But wait!  That's not all!  Order now and get this special bonus...just kidding.  I kind of like those ShamWow, Mr. Microphone adds.  But it is true that I do have a little bonus...I've included a Mixology section with a number of my favorite drink recipes from my early years as a bartender.
Everyone deserves a little libation after hours of hard work in the studio...Salud!
So there you have an iPhone App that will come in mighty handy in the studio.  So where, pray-tell, does one download such a handy application?  Well, I'm glad you asked.  Either search for "deMeng's Shades of Alchemy" in the App Store of your iPhone (simply type in "deMeng" and you'll find it too).  Click on the tan hand with the eye...and you'll be good to go. 
Click on the image above if you want to go to the iTunes Store...or here's the link:

Have fun!
Oh and for all you non-iPhone users...I've got other things in the works that will flip your pancakes.  More on that later.

Hi Michael! You are so very ahead of the game!!
I love the App idea, me - no iPhone, but I can't wait to
see what pancakes you will be flipping!

Congratulations! However, I have many, many friends who have iPhones, so I will let them know about your app!

Since I gave my iTouch to her, now I'm going to have to beg my daughter to get the app so I can play until I make it back into the technological age. :D How cool.

Maria Ontiveros said...

Thank you Michael for the inspiration! I had so much fun playing with the app today - it was just the kick in the pants I needed to get into my studio and start splashing paint around!
If you're interested, you can see my samples (and one completed piece) at my blog post:
