Here ya go Wendy! This is me enjoying a nice refreshing Cannibal Bob Cooler made from Pineapple Juice (yellow), Orange Juice (orange), Tamarind Nectar & Myers's Rum (brown) It taste like a million bucks ~ but that is because I'm drinking it from a MASTERPIECE. I think I could pour Thunderbird into this mug and it would taste like Dom Perignon White Gold!


Personally, I think me in the picture detracts from the beauty of the mug, I prefer this instead

Well this is a bummer. I was able to open the kiln last night. I took lots of photos until my battery was dead. So I charged it up and took more photos in preparation for this morning.

Now Dan and I have searched everywhere and we can't find the transfer chord. Life is full of mysteries but I think I know what happened. I was standing over the waste paper can when I took out the chord to charge my battery. Right after Dan collected the trash and took the big can to the curb. They picked up while we were asleep this morning.

This is all guessing. Dan has a doctors appointment for a vaccine against shingles. When you turn 60 you get the shot. After that we will go to Best Buy and get 2 new chords if they have them and I'll load the photos ASAP.

Meanwhile I'm going to answer most of my wonderful messages that I read to Dan this morning as he crawled around on the floor looking for the chord.

WestADad Dan was flushed because I keep giving him reward kisses. You are right MadDogMike got his mug first because I wanted that photo pinup for our wall! I hope everyone will send me a photo of them with their mugs and bowls. Everyone opted to wait until I can ship the Zombie Torch with them, it's so much cheaper.

Atomic Tiki Punk sorry there is a wait this morning. See you this weekend.

MadDogMike you are a handsome pinup, you can't hide the fact. You belong in the Buzzy Bedroom. Thank you so very much for this photo. I love seeing my art safe in hand! You even look good in modern block art.

RugbyMatt we haven't seen the movie but now we'll be watching for it. Dan loves to be my darling clown. He said he liked shaking photos better than mopping photos.

VampiressRN like minds. Dan said Shake and Bake too.

Zerostreet we feel honored that you photoshopped Dan. That was well done thank you. I took a photo of your Mystery Woman hung...where else in the Buzzy Bedroom. I'll post it when I get the chord.

teaKey I took a photo to show you why we had to shake so check back later today. It was a learning lesson that I forgot to share.

hang10tiki we were singing that song the whole time. When Dan and I dated in the late 70's I loved to dance at Black Angus to Brick House and Shake your Booty. He loved it when the Beach Boys were played.

Next up will be all the photos right down to a finished Zombie Mug. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, Sorry about the camera misstep, But don't you worry about us, we have become spoiled

Thank you Atomic Tiki Punk formerly Chuck Tatum is Tiki. It does take a lot of time to post but all the comments reward me so much that I'll never stop.

I have a few things to post and then we'll get to the final result.

I've hung the Mystery Woman by zerostreet - Robert Jimenez in the Buzzy Bedroom.

Thank you Robert she really took the room up a notch.

teaKey here is a side view of the mug. the part that is indented for the flame causes an area that would hold air and not be glazed unless we shook and inverted the mug.


As you can tell our trip to Best Buy worked. They didn't sell replacement chords so I got a card reader. My computer didn't work for the card size on the new camera. This reader is perfect.


I made this small super carved statue for myself but it was abducted and taken to the tiki jungle room.




Now it is time to show you the glaze tests.

My inspiration for the Zombie Torch was my favorite menu cover.


Test One all brown



Test Two all brown with glaze wiped off of Zombie and Woman



Test Three Green and Brown ( I have learned from these tests to spray the green first and the brown second. That will be an improvement.




Ever wonder how the flame would stay and not fall off. Earthquake putty. A piece will come with each mug. Make a rope and stick it around the opening.

Press the flame down firmly.

Tested with a long straw and it works fine.


Test four brown and green. The Zombie had glaze wiped off and the woman is painted with enamel that is fixed by baking in my home oven.



Group comparisons.





Note: I accidentally reversed the colors on the flower. That I will correct. Pink flower darker at the stamen and center not the edges.

I have tests but I don't have finished mugs. Dan is finishing the flames. Because they are glazed inside and out like a mug the spikes that held them during firing leaves sharp spots on the bottom. Each must be sanded smooth. Of course I'll take photos for tomorrow.

Now its your part to tell me what you think of each test. Do you think the run should all look alike or would you like a choice with a difference in price according to the amount of work? If I let you choose which version the prices would be:

Test One: All brown (except for the flame) $100
Test Two: All brown with the bodies wiped of some glaze $110
Test Three: Half brown and half green $110
Test Four: Half brown and half green with the Zombie wiped of some glaze and the girl hand painted with enamel and baked to set $125

My wish is that everyone would want Test Four. I love painting the woman and also making the Zombie look closer to the menu. But I realize that tastes are different and I'm willing to make an order specific to each person.

I am going to make a numbered card to go with each mug. I love being able to say I give out my autograph. You must know by now that Dan and I are hams.

Please let me know your thoughts. Cheers, Wendy

Thank you WestADad. It's fun to paint these ladies.

I forgot to mention once again that the mugs with the flame are appoximatley
14 inches tall and they are thick and heavy mugs so that they will not tip over.

Cheers, Wendy

I agree with Chris, #4 is awesome!

Thanks so much for posting that pic Wendy! I'm thrilled to have my work hanging in your home! Will post pics of the mug as soon as it arrives!!

The Mystery Girl is larger than I imagined. So cool to the the torches all glazed with the "flames" on them. All of the different variations are beautiful.

Wendy,

I think #4 is the best. I agree with you, that's what everyone should want/get. I think you are the artist so if you only want to make #4 that's what you should do.

Love all the pictures & your dedication to posting religiously. I know I'm not the only one who appreciates it!!!!!


Lori

Very nice Wendy! I like #4 as well.. The zombie looks great in green and your beautiful hand painted ladies look better to me in the brown than if you were to paint them over the green glaze..

Your mini carved Bob is great, what a lucky guy to be abducted to the Jungle Room, you could lock me up in there with a case of rum any day..

All look great, but #4 is stunning. The paint is amazing and such a wonderful touch.

I am floored.

You made a fantastic mug!
