hang10tiki thank all of your for your notes that make this posting so fun.
Atomic Tiki Punk I wish I could open the lid sooner.
MadDogMike every day is one closer to Mohave so I hope this worked.
Professor G I wish I could hear that giggling!

Progress Report:
The kiln is cooling down. One more day of waiting.
I am still doing my Spanish lessons so when I went to work on Marone Tikis bowl yesterday it dawned on me that Marone is Spanish for brown. Brown Tikis bowl is finished and drying. Here are the steps.

I glazed the inside with Firecracker Red. It's a spotted glaze and that's why there are so many chunks. They melt flat leaving brilliant colors.

Three layers of marone.


Al done and drying.


Next I did the last two layers on Psycho Tiki D's bowl. Where are you Duane?



Next up was the bowl for hang10tiki. He requested an inside like the old Bumatay or Gecko bowls. This is something I've never tried before. I don't know if it will work here but I've tried.

Three layers of yellow.

Three layers of orange and then some touches of yellow to blend it in.

Next up the red.

I finished the blending of the three colors.

Being very careful to not have it run into the center I poured in red glaze and rotated the bowl. This needed to also cover under the lip.

Around and around.

Now not only is it kept upside down to dry I also run my finger around the lip to removed excess glaze. If glaze is too thick it will boil in the kiln and make pock marks.

After it dried I cleaned off the top.

Somehow I forgot to take photos. I also did the three layers of brown on the outside of this bowl. Today I will drool red and yellow over the sides like lava runs as requested. I've never done this before so once again, fingers crossed!

Back to work. Cheers, Wendy

Ummm...did someone mention me?

Wendy, of course I have been here all along and have admired every post in this thread since day one. I am so proud of the two of you and how far you have come in such a relatively short amount of time.

I sent you an email and will hopefully see you soon!


Duane

Psycho Tiki D it does amaze us that our first ceramic mug was made here only 19 months ago. We are happy that we didn't just buy all the stuff and then let it sit. You started it all by asking me to make the Zombie Hut/ Coral Reef mug, thank you forever. It's hard work but we are so happy making new friends and having our "children" go to good homes.

Atomic Chick glazing is not predictable and there are glitches. See below ):

MadDogMike I learn more every time I lift the lid.

hang10tiki people say that all they can think of to write here is the same thing each time. I have the same problem, I want to say thank you over and over. But without these simple words I'd never feel the love and I'd stop posting. So wow means a lot to me. Thank you!

Kele I'm so happy to see you here and to know you are nearby.

Atomic Tiki Punk and hang10tiki the photos are coming up after I show you what else I did yesterday. I hope you can scroll slowly.

ebTiki wrote me a very nice PM. Eric I'd love to see you post here too.

Progress Report:

OK people yesterday I worked on projects and yes also opened the kiln. Here are the photos of my day. I wonder if you will look at them all or skip ahead.

First off I examined each Zombie Torch mug and looked for five that were not as perfect as the others. I made 35 so I could do five tests and then these become ours. I will let you all help me decided what the run of 30 should look like.

These are the five. Those are the Missionary Downfall women waiting for bowls. If anyone wants one and has an idea for the bowl to go with it let me know.


I then glazed the Bumatay Bowl.




Next up hang10tikis bowl with red lava. I made it thick but my best guess is that it will melt into the brown glaze and be flat like the photos you sent.




Tall Bob Bowl with the glaze test for the color choice.



The four Bob Bowls drying.


Into the bottom of the kiln which was still at 100 degrees from the firing.


Now I glazed my small Super craved Tiki Bob statue.



Top Shelf of the kiln.


Bottom shelf of the kiln.


There are so many glitches with glazing that I will detail here how your mug turned out and what I will do to fix any problems.

South of the Boarder Bob for The Blue Kahuna. It turned out beautifully. Now I need to just enamel paint all the hat designs. If you have a photo of a sombrero you like send it to me or post it here.


MadDogMikes Cannibal mug and necklace - perfect. Loki Tiki's dog Tiki Ba has several little streaks of brown that I will glaze over with more yellow today.


Tiki Tom D some of the black satin glaze was not thick enough so I'll add more today.


bavtech same here. Three coats of the black satin wasn't enough so I'll glaze it today.


blacksandz your mug is a challenge. I will add some more glaze in red to the body and some more pale off white in the cravings and if you don't like the improvements with glaze I can enhance it with enamel or Dan's ready to add it to his collection. Let me know what you think. I do need to add the black to the mouth because I forgot to do that.


zerostreet it's perfect PM your address so I may send it to you.


Atomic Chick. Not one single crack showed up. Dan loves your mug so if you want to wait for a few months I'll try again. On the front of Mosaic Bob in the green tile there are black dots. I will sand these off and re-glaze this tile.


Blue Bob Group. There are small pale dots of blue on the faces that I need to glaze over.


So here is my work for today. My goal is to finish the fixes and get these into the kiln tonight or in the morning.


Overall I am super happy with how they came out. There's always something to fix.
Professor G I should have taken a photo of the back. It's a beautiful night scene. I'm looking forward to adding the stars.

Well what do you think? You know I love your comments. I'm off to work, Wendy
