Hi MauiTiki, I don't know his secrets too. We have many of his with the black gunk on them and it comes off. It's not like paint it's like tar. It's always been dry.

MDM I forgot to mention how much I like your Raku seahorses. I wish you had step by step photos for us. You were going to make what you needed to do Raku. What does it look like? Wendy

Wendy - it's fun! You should try it! You have to use a clay that will take the thermal shock, I used Max's Paperclay. You bisque it normally and paint a raku glaze on it, I used Mayco Peacock Matte. When it reaches proper glaze temp (^06 in this case) you pull it from the kiln GLOWING HOT with tongs. You drop it in a metal bucket full of combustibles (newspaper, grass, leaves, straw, wood shavings, etc), wait for it to catch fire, then put a tight lid on it.

Raku kilns are easy enough to build and fairly inexpensive, I just haven't decided if I would use one enough to be worth it. I did the seahorses at the local community college (it's good to cultivate contacts ) I've got a pint of glaze, if I do any more I'll take pictures.

PS Wendy, you got a nice selection of stilts there!

Mike, anyone with a 60 page "creating Tiki" thread is an expert in my book! I like your idea of doing the Raku at the school, there is a place on Maui that may be available for BeachBumz and I to try it one day. There is a guy on Maui who gets his clay matte black and pokes it with a stick creating a cool lava like effect. I think it's fired Raku style.

Wendy, I live on a volcano and I have access to red dirt just like our friend. I know of a place where it's bright red and clay-like. I need to mix my own and try applying it to some mugs. It will stain anything. (have you seen the line of "red dirt shirts?") Maybe mix it in with the slip like the old red clay mugs from Orchids of Hawaii. Sooo many projects and so little time.

Hey Maui Tiki, he isn't using the dirt. When he calls it red dirt it just looks like the Treasure Craft glaze but once I washed one and it came off down to white bisque clay. So I don't know what it is that's being used. You can wash Treasure Craft. Both Gecko and Babalu said glazes are the biggest secret there is to a ceramicist. Glazing makes you special.

Hi Mike, almost sounds like glass blowing. I would have loved to watch the whole process. I have the tongs but not the desire.

Big hugs guys for all your hard work, Wendy

I won't mention any names, but the guy who customized that mug is a really nice guy (I saw him Sunday) and he responds to PMs - you can always ask him



Just to clarify, there were 2 names of the bottom of that mug - the artist who sculpted it and the artist who glazed it and I had them confused. I don't know the glazing artist (though I did meet him at Oasis 9) - I don't want to be claiming to know someone when I don't

Hah! That just means I post a lot of crap

I picked up some very red dirt from Sedona, AZ last summer. I soaked it in water, mixed it well, let it settle for days, then decanted off the clay layer - One of these days I will have to try to use it on something. Michael's Crafts sells an Amaco Indian Red clay (they sell it as an airdry clay for kids but it can be fired up to ^02), it's a very nice red clay but not as cool as self harvested natural clay, especially Hawaiian volcano clay

Regan, GROG, Kinny, Robert & Amy - thanks for your kind comments on Bob Kong. I ended up selling him on eBay for far more than I expected
I have revisited 2 recurrent themes for me: Baining and matching shirts & mugs.
Someone had posted a
shirt a while back that reminded me of the Baining patterns. I tried making a Baining shirt with red and black Sharpies but it bled too much. So I created a set of Baining Fire Dance mask graphics and had them printed by Spoonflower. (thank you Dawn) Then I appliquéd some flames and the masks to a black shirt. If you are going to Mojave Oasis and we have not met, I'll be the one wearing this shirt Friday night



Then in an unsuccessful attempt to out-Tiki Guy Buzzy, I needed to make a mug to match the shirt. I had previously made a Baining Mug I and a Baining Mug II, this one is a little more simple than the last two 'cuz it was a quickie that I had to get done by this weekend
