The Friday the 13th deadline has come and thank you to everyone who signed up for the next ride. As I do your work I will post photos.

LoriLovesTikis was the last to sign up, thank you Lori.
hang10tiki that sounds like a good song title.

YESTERDAY WAS FRIDAY THE 13TH AND WE HAD A DISASTER DAY BUT WE STILL HAD FUN. Because of the problem I didn't paint the Zombie Torch mugs so today I will do nothing else but paint and bake.

This is the original Missionary's Downfall bowl with the woman who caused it.
The woman and bowl are clay. The woman has been molded and I've made some. Dan gave me his bowl so that it too could be molded.


I decided to make a one piece mold. That was the first mistake.


I drilled holes into the bowl and added a pulling cord.


Dan set up the garage for this messy work.

I wanted to modify the bowl so that I could pour it in different ways. Same as the original or with taller sides and a deeper bowl. Clay is stretchy and I could press the bowl bottom down to deepen it after casting. I made a clay base. I pulled the chords through to the center.

I put in more clay.

I put the bowl on top and cut away excess clay.

I smoothed the clay and filled holes.

I put tape over the chord so that it wouldn't get stuck in the plaster.

I formed each piece of bamboo.

Front.

Back. The detail will be added after a bowl is cast.

The sides are added and the clay ropes are placed to prevent leaks. I measured how much plaster was needed for 2 inches above the bowl.
SECOND MISTAKE. DAN ASKED IF I WAS USING MOLD SOAP AND I SAID NO THAT GOES BETWEEN PLASTER PIECES AND THIS IS ONLY ONE PIECE. I should have used it.

It's time to mix. I add the water and plaster.

Dan is the mixing man.

It took three batches to fill the box to the right level. Ten years from now neither of us will be able to make a mold this heavy and still be able to lift it.

Once the plaster hardened I removed the sides and Dan flipped it over.

I removed the clay.

I'm just showing the chords Dan tried pulling them and it didn't budge the bowl.

Watch out for me I swung that hatchet with force.

I chiseled too. What had happened was the acrylic paint that was on the bowl became super glue when the plaster heated. It fused to the plaster. A regular sculpt would not have this problem.

Shop vacs are nice.

I chiseled on an off during the day. My right arm has a metal plate from a fracture so today I will take it easy and paint the mugs. No more chiseling until that project is finished. I will save this mold one whack at a time.


We poured the day before and it was time to open them.

I'm stock piling the Bob's for the wish list projects. I wrap them in plastic so they don't dry. When the ZT mugs are done I will have these ready to work on.


Sweeping is a no no but with so many chips flying before we moved to the yard it was needed. Mask up or die.

End of day the mopper man comes through.


There is no way I could do this without Dan.

Now it is time to get busy on those Zombie Torch mugs. A relaxing day ahead.

Cheers, Wendy

Hi Vamp, you should have been here for the ride. When I started whacking that bowl chips where flying everywhere. So we moved it outside on the lawn so all the neighbors could watch.

Atomic Tiki Punk Dan is crazy because he's been married to me for almost 34 years!

MadDogMike all our tools are metal because they are as old as we are.

Progress Report:

Yesterday I painted for 8 hours and that was all I could do in one day. I'll start again today after we pour a run of Bob's for the wish list. I finished the skirt and hair. All the small details are next. (: Wendy

Atomic Tiki Punk and hang10tiki thank you for the boost to keep me going.

Babalu thank you for checking up on me. I'm so glad that you convinced me to make molds. It's been a learning curve that's like a roller coaster but in the end we always end up with molds that work.

Here's yesterday:

One whack at a time I chiseled out the original bowl from the mold.


By the time the molds were ready to pour out I had finished.
All defects can be fixed once a poured bowl is out of the mold. Dents just add clay that can be sliced off. I did fill them with plaster but I don't know if it will stick. Now this mold will dry for a week or more.All defects can be fixed once a poured bowl is out of the mold. Dents just add clay that can be sliced off.

We poured all these molds yesterday.

The tikis for the Wish List are stacking up and waiting until it is their turn.

Two Bumatay's for bowl were poured.

I need the fins to be strong and thick.

I filled in the fins with more slip so that they are solid.


Progress on the Zombie Torch mugs.

Yesterday I did the first layer on the flowers.


Next I painted all the eyebrows and lashes.


Step by step they are nearing the time in the oven! Cheers, Wendy

HB I wish I were more creative with words like Kenny but since I'm not I hope you will know that when I say thank you I really mean it.

TikiTomD I'll take those elemental oohs and aahs any time, thank you too.

Hi Amy, we were just at your Mohave Oasis to see Buzzy on our way to Las Vegas. What a fun place. We are looking forward to seeing all the photos of the wild campers. Thank you for checking my thread and your kind words. Dan was happy to see the PS.


The Missionary's Downfall bowl is drying in the sun. Sun its feeling like California again.


I've done the lips and the next part are the Grand Tetons!

Here's a ceramic lesson. Sometimes when add additional clay where it joins it interferes with the glaze. When I paint these parts with enamel I hide the tiny imperfections. That is why on this mug with flower petal is on the skin near her eye.


I don't think a singe mug is perfect but I'll do my best with them all.

We have company this morning but later on we'll be back to work. Cheers, Wendy
