MadDogMike, love your mug. Ok I've got to do this too. Anyone who writes a comment should sign up. The more the better. Wendy




I made this mug one at a time for Dan and a few friends. I think I will start today and make one more for this trade. I used the photo from the Zombie Village menu and their post card to make a 3-D version of the Zombie. It was fun to do his 6 pack!

Jonesey thank you for spreading the word, you hooked me as did MadDogMikes mug, I want it too! Wendy

OK, I'm hearin' a lot of talk but I'm not seein' much action - Don't make me swap with myself!!!!

Finished a second mug, guess I'll let my swap partner decide which one they want. This one is based on the menu of "The Polynesian" restaurant in Torrance CA.





I've got more pics posted on my
Platterful of Pp thread.

I'm enjoying this menu inspired art- I've got my sights set on this next

My Swap mug is based on the Zombie Village menu. The front has the Zombie and the back will have the girl and scenery. I love Mad Dogs entries but I hope there will be so many that we will not be able to guess who we may trade with. I have a long way to go. When the clay is done, it's baked, sanded and carved and then I paint it to match the menu colors. Come on everyone it's fun to be involved. Wendy

Wendy, absolutely stunning! The reverse side with the woman is incredible, the way the fabric drapes is so realistic. Is that polymer clay?

Hi Guys, it's Super Sculpey, very expensive but worth it. This mug will be for display only because I plan to paint the inside also. Thank you for your comments, I loved them, Wendy

Great stuff there Wendy and Mad Dog! Man, could it actually be possible that I may just possibly get a Cevola Original that I've been craving for so long? All my begging over the years didn't get me squat!

So here's my "entry" in it's shaped wood and pencil outline form.
Any guesses which menu inspired it?



...how 'bout now?



Here's a hint: it's somewhere in this scan of the menu...



Hey! There he is! It's the logo tiki from Frankie's! I heard a rumor that it's a Little Lost Kinney design in the WITCO vein. Is that true?



And here he is all finished up & waxed...




He's made o' redwood, and measures 18" tall, about 12" wide, and about 2" thick.

Ya know what's kinda funny; Frankie's never had one made for their own place. All that tiki goodness inside and no logo tiki! Well, some lucky art trader's gonna get one, that's for sure!

Hi Lee, wow this year is shaping up really well. I love the tiki face you choose, great job. I'll post more photos later today. I worked on the girls arms and shoulders for 10 hours yesterday. Copying something is way harder than doing something original. Did you really beg me for art? Wendy
