Holy cow...what an amazing job and your talent shines through even more (if that is possible)? How many do you cast before you fire them?

Good question on how many? You may want to start a thread so you know. BTW, please put me down for at least two!

Will you be at Vamp's July party? See ya soon!

If you do several pours in a day, be sure and put your mold out in the sun between pours. The drier your mold is between pours, the longer it will last. Looking good. Good luck.

Due to the number of participants hosting in this year's event, we are going to add a special "Friday" October 8th evening stop at TikiMookie and Matt the Cat's home. They are requesting an evening slot to unveil their new firepit area in their backyard.

More details to follow!

Could this get any better??

I really appreciate all the time you are putting into this thread. Not only for creating the mug but showing all of your TC peeps how it's done.

No wonder they are so expensive.

Gosh, I came home from work so tired and all of your notes just perked me up. I'm still recovering from pneumonia so its slow going on casting until I'm more peppy.

Thanks Grog and one more question. Does a cold mold even when dry act slower to remove the water?

Colors, now that's something I've been thinking about all the time. The match book is black with white lettering and highlights. But then there is the other side. Well the mask could then be light brown and the words Coral Reef could be in coral pink red. All of that would look good if it works and doesn't run.

I think I will make some proto types in different glazes and then post them for a vote. If it works out we could have a paint your own mug party as long as there is time for that and fireing before the crawl. Tiki Mookie I haven't forgotten you want to come for a clay day.

Eric you are welcome. The day of vamps party Dan and I are taking a mold making class from Mike (he made this mold). I'll take photos of the process for this thread. I've caved in and plan to learn how to make molds.

Tiki G always good to hear from you.

I just love it that we will have tikiphiles clear from reading on South Ca coming. Wow. Cheers everyone, Wendy

Thrillsville...just booked a flight for the Mother Unit to come up for the Crawl. You know she can handle a couple of drinks and kill snakes if necessary...and that ain't too bad for 91 years old. She had fun year-before-last on the crawl...she is still talking about Alia's Pulled Pork!!!

We need to get her over to Dan & Wendy's so she can see that Jungle Room

Hi Vamp, we would love to have your mother in the jungle. We should put her in animal skins and take photos. She's a wild one for sure!

Grog's good advice is being followed. I put the mold in the sun when I'm home so it can dry extra well. Even still tiny pieces come off each time I use it. I'm numbering them as I go. The two that Mike poured I'll use for glaze tests. I'm trying to paint my original sculpt tonight as an example of how they could look (maybe, I'm learning as I go).

Here's a photo of the mold baking and the mugs drying. Cheers, Wendy

ps see everyone at Vamp's party Saturday

Great job on organizing the crawl Duane and great job on that mug Wendy! I can't wait to see everybody at Vamp's tomorrow evening!

My stuff finally showed up this week so now I am unpacking and working to "tikify" this new house. If anyone is in East Sac drop on by for a cocktail, I am at 1461 52nd St. (5 doors down from The Shack on Folsom).
