It's a candle holder! Use coconut scented wax!

Don't listen to Buzzy, he's always talking about some time machine he invented that will travel back to 1951 so he can scratch "Made by Buzzy" on all the Tiki mugs and carvings of the era. So far, lets just say I ain't seen his Time Machine, savvy boss-man? (Unless its that tar-encrusted thing in his kitchen that looks kind of like a Mr. Coffee from 1975.) And who feeds the dog when he's on these jaunts?

NICE FREKIN' WORK!

Whatever it is, I thought of it first.
Buzzy Out!




How does he do that?? Well your almost had it Buzz - you didn't catch the part where I am going to put a haunted Tiki idol figure on the side of it...I remeber seeing this on a tv show a long time ago...hummm - I think it was on the Brady Bunch.

Why, thank you for stopping in Sir Ben!!

OK, I've been kickin' this mug for a week now...I'm calling this oil sculpt done! On to building the plaster molds tomorrow...

I have a new appreciation for what Squid and Bowana do. This oil has taken me a minute to get use to...that white "Roma #2" clay I started with sucks - do not buy that - too soft. Bowana gave me some of his coveted Chinese mystery brown clay to play with. I really like it.

The below Yipwan Drum Mug will be molded in two parts...as you can see the top is separate from the base. Either end on this oil base will be built up with shit clay so that I can make the mold a 3 part mold (lot-o-clean up on this one). The top will also be a 3 part mold. When the slip castings are pulled from the molds, the 2 ends will be trimmed away on the base, and the other top part then slip attached before the 1st firing. I designed it this way so that the bottom would be like the opening on the bottom of a drum - up inside the drum bottom edge will be the rounded under side/bottom of the drinking area. Hope I'm not speaking Greek here?

Anywho - I'm only going to pull 25 of these drum mugs and 1 AP and that's it...after that, its hammer time for the plaster mold. I hope to have them all done in time for Oasis, we'll see...

Thanks for stopping in









PS the little tongues on the faces will be removed before building the molds - then added back to slip casts.

Hey now! Getting all fancy schmancy on us I see! That mug would look good with a two tone glaze sorta like the colors of the clay.
Nice one, Babalu. Now git on that moldmaking!!
