What a bunch of crazies populate this place - that's a good thing! TigerTail, I had told Wendy in a PM that it was a self portrait, I guess you could see the resemblance too Thanks for all the kind comments, the chimp is still drying slowly. He spends about 12 hours a day drying and 12 hours a day wrapped in plastic for the moisture to equilibrate. He may be ready to bisque fire by this weekend but I had better get on the ball and order some glaze for him!

MDM, he's right you need a Gallery thread so we can just scroll down all of your wonderful and creative art without text. Another project! Wendy

I have a gallery thread, The Maddoggery. But I just quietly add updates by editing the first post so it's found at the very bottom of the Gallery forum

That's OK Mike I didn't know about the Maddoggery either and through your mis-post got to see your other works. So you know... a happy mistake. Fantastic stuff.

GROG, MP, Chuck, Wendy, Jesse - THANK YOU!

Been a couple of weeks since I last posted but my chimp project has not died out. My kiln is down for repairs and I have been working on a couple of non-tiki projects. But the chimp is scheduled to fire in someone else's kiln tomorrow (it's good to have friends ).

I'm planning a polymer clay pith helmet for him with a tapa cloth hatband so I started working on tapa cloth millifiore canes. I haven't done much cane work but I think the technique has potential for tapa cloth.


(for you old-timers, no that's not my fake dime )

Nifty, I've seen that technique used but haven't tried it myself yet.

I can't help it... all I can think of is candy... taffy or caramel when I see those.
I am curious how do you do this technique to get those shapes...think you can post a step by step on how its done?

Sorry to hear about the kiln, but good to see you working again.

Thanks Bear & Tiger. Tiger, the millefiore (thousands of flowers) technique has been used for centuries by Venetian glass workers and adapted to polymer clay. I have only tried the technique a couple of times, there are lots of tutorials out there - much better than I can make Here is one on making orange slices, this one is pretty simple but some are very complex. You can make the cane with big pieces so it's easy to work with, then after it's assembled, roll it out as small as you want - the pattern stays but just gets smaller. Then you slice the cane, apply it to a surface and bake it.

HOTDOG!!! Looks like I'm back in business! Replaced the KilnSitter plunger and cam spring, seems to be working now. Threw in a few witness cones and doing a test firing - I'll know by bedtime if I did any good
