YEAH!!! Wow the venue is getting full. Duane has got a fabulous line-up going on for us. This will be the best crawl ever!!! I'm still thrilled about the Martini Kings going out of their way to play at my place....truly a dream come true for me.

Super Good Time. Vamp your party was so much fun, good food, drink and hugs all around. Wendy




Duane thought up the mug, I made it, Bullet contacted Mike, Mike made the mold.

The first one out of the mold.

The prototype painted to look like the match book.

I surprised Duane with his name on the bottom of the mug.


I couldn't have done it without Mike. He has since begun to teach Dan and I how to make molds. We are so happy! Thank you Mike.

This mug project has changed the rest of my life. I've now invested in a kiln for the first time. Babalu, MadDogMike and Gecko are helping me learn all the tricks. There are so many projects to look forward too.

With all the excitement over the mug I couldn't stop smiling thank you all.

I'm going to post a new thread on Making Molds under Crafts soon. Mike is even going to teach us how to make master molds. I'll share what I learn, no secrets. Hugs, Wendy

PS I missed photos of Christine, Casey, Eva, Brenda so many people so little time. If you have some please post them.

PSS I've posted the best photos of the mug on my Gallery page.

Hi Wendy,

I feel so bad we missed your "pre" unvailing at Vamps house yesterday. We had a prior engagement and got there around 9:30, and heard all the raves about what we had missed.

I'm looking forward to the crawl, it's going to be epic!

And I'd love to take you up on your offer to have me help you with painting. I miss art, and used to paint watercolors, and use my creativity. Matt & I are working on our house and we have a spare room that will be our art room. I'm so excited for you and your excitement is so infectious. I've always wanted to create with clay, and I think mug making is so exciting. Can't wait to see your informative posts and get together for some creative learning. Sounds like a really fun time.

We'll see you soon! Please let me know when you want some help and I'll find the time! And thanks

Mookie

Hi Wendy,

It's great to see the mug take shape. Has does one view your gallery page? Thanks again for creating a mug representing two ol' Sacramento icons. Tonja and I will say hello at Tiki Oasis.

Congratulations on the new mug, Wendy. It looks great! You will find that the basics of mold making are pretty simple. The problem is that so many variables can come into play that at times it had me yelling with fists shaking at the sky(you probably heard me all the way in sacto). The most important thing that I have learned is to relax and never try to rush through the process. Have fun with it!

I love to read posts from old and new friends. This is what keeps me excited about tiki art. Leleliz, now I know who you are, I didn't get you and your TC name connected. Hey TK from Oakland it's great to hear from another mug maker (one we collect). Our first mold with Mike turned out well and I'll be sharing the steps. What we molded has an incredible history so I'm holding back until I'm ready to tell the story. TM it will be September when I bisk the mugs and do the black glaze. Then we can assembly line the white. Thequin, go to the home page here on TC, select Gallery, scan down to The art of Wendy Cevola or the author danlovestikis, that's me too! I'd love to hear your comments on that thread when you have time. Hit me on the head at Oasis so I don't miss meeting you, hugs for everyone, Wendy

Hi Ka'lenatiki, did you get the kiln out?

It's looking like I'll have 40 mugs made in time for the crawl. That is unless I explode or melt some as I learn.

It seems there is a list for those who want one forming on this thread. That's a good idea. I also owe some to those who helped me get started.

Duane 1 artist proof free, one mug to buy
Kingstiedye, he has connections, 1 artist proof free
Mike the mold maker 1 artist proof free
Wendylovestikis 1 free for Dan #10 mug, he's helped me every step of the way
Tiki Mookie 1 mug to buy
VampiressRN 1 mug to buy (reserved #11)
EBTiki Eric Banks 1 mug I owe him for a favor he did for Dan
Tiki G 1 mug to buy
Ka'lenatiki 1 mug to buy moved to the can't attend list below.

Bongofury- one mug to buy
the quin -Bill and Tonja - 1mug to buy
TikiTnT -Terri and Tom - 1 mug to buy
Marone Tiki - 1 mug to buy

Here is a list of people not attending the crawl but who would like to get a mug if there are some left over or made after the crawl is done. If any on the above list do not make it to the crawl they will go on this other list.

Ka'lenatiki 8/8
Tobor64 request 8/9
Big Kahuna 8/10
Kohalacharms request 8/16
1961surf request 8/17
Vampiress RN's niece 9/14
A friend of PTD's 9/20

Tiki Kaimuki - Falin 10-2
Kahaka - 10-3

PolynesianPop 10-5
ron-tiki 10-8

Did I miss anyone? I'll keep editing this list. Right now it's one mug per family unless there are some left over at the end of the crawl through our home.

One a day, that's all I can do with one mold. I'm enjoying this project so much, thank you all for your support.



EVEN THOUGH THE MUGS ARE SOLD OUT NAMES ARE BEING ADDED IN CASE THERE ARE
PEOPLE WHO DO NOT SHOW UP. IF YOU COUNT THERE ARE MORE NAMES THAN MUGS. WHEN PEOPLE COME TO THE CRAWL THEY BUMP OUT OF TOWN PEOPLE FROM GETTING A MUG.

Wendy, went over and stared at it needs to be rewired before I dare fire it up, looks like the mice have been at the wiring. Between this tread and the other mug making thread over in crafts, I've got a itch to try making one. Please put me down for at least one mug also while you are making a list. thanks

Well this is fun, thank you, hugs, Wendy

ps I once spent a month stringing a necklace of tiny green pepper seeds sideways, then I painted a tiny flower on each one. This was in the 60's when we all thought we were hippies. I loved my necklace but so did a tiny mouse that found it and ate it and was then executed. Best to not fool around with wiring.

Wow...quite a little "Warehouse Stacking" thing ya go going on there with your babies. LOL
