SEC Paintings: Video Tutorial to Paint an Ole Miss Football Helmet

Football season is coming up - YEAH - TAILGATING!!!!

I went to Ole Miss, by far the best school in the nation for tailgating (IMO :) ). People set up wonderful displays in The Grove with lots of finger foods, decorations and big screen TVs.  Tailgating is better than going to the game (again IMO :) ), I go for the social aspect, the sports are just the reason to show up. :)

I've decided to do some SEC paintings and I hope you all use them to decorate your tailgating tables, maybe even put on your front door, decorate a recreation/game room etc, have an alumni party or sorority painting party. Show your spirit, have a party and paint to get ready for the upcoming Football Season!!

To set the series off we are starting with my Alma Mater: Ole Miss - HOTTY TODDY!!
