WestADad we hope to ship out the Bumatay today. Please post a photo like Tavarua Tiki's when it arrives.

hang10tiki I hope you and everyone who watches the painting will point out anything that doesn't look right as I progress. I'm always learning as I go.

MadDogMike weird, I had an idea for a pineapple in my painting, we'll see. I tried to get some paper clay but it was all high fire and came in 50 pound bags. The shop said that the Magic Mend is a low fire liquid version. So I'm mounding it on the cracks and as it dries I mush it into them and add more. It's looking good so far but firing will tell the whole story.


Tavarua Tiki thank you so much. Tropical setting, cute guy, my art. Its a perfect photo.

KittyKat65, the year you graduated high school? Or the year you were born? I'm always curious about numbers. Welcome. I hope to see you here often. 2 hours? I'm honored.

Now its time to update the Wish List:

I glazed all day and here's how much was done. Some will require cold paint after firing to highlight areas or to add detail such as eyes and mouth on Bob.

Tavarua Tiki's Creature From The Bob Lagoon. I hope one day that glazing will require 1 layer instead of three. Yep that red glaze turns green.

Spotted glaze on Doug Horne's puffer fish, Bob's face and the interior of the mug.





Volcano/Pele/Fire mug for the swap that MadDogMike is running this year.


Drying. She will not be smiling by the time she is finished with the cold paint.


Tonga Tiki's Missionary's Downfall bowl and the woman who caused it. He wanted the inside of the bowl to match her dress. It is a nicely spotted glaze called Honeysuckle.

The gray glaze has been discontinued. It is very much like rough lava when fired. When I run out there will be no more. I have it in four colors, this black/grey, light browns and even a blue.



Rock Solid Bob in Royal Blue. So this mug will make Murph Dog a member of the Blue Bob Group. I haven't started the face yet.



BaconSM's Pac Man Bob. I'm doing the entire outside of the mug in underglaze. I will see if I can do all the colors this way. If not I'll just add cold paint after firing. No next up with this mug is to paint everything on the game board in blue, white, pink, orange etc.



I will paint all day today and post more photos tomorrow.

Thank you for the 864 views yesterday. That was a real fun surprise. Oh, I forgot to subtract my 850 views. Still a very good day. I'm having so much fun. I hope you are too, Wendy

All beautiful Wendy! I think the Pele and the Creature are my favorites.

Freeform in San Diego carries a lowfire paperclay, maybe you can pick some up when you come down for Oasis? I think New Mexico Clay ships clay for free. They make a clay with nylon fibers instead of paper fibers (still works the same) called
Lafingspirit It's supposed to be better than paperclay because the paper fibers will rot out of the clay if you keep it too long before using it, the nylon fibers don't do that.

MadDogMike I am going to get a bag of the paper clay since the nylon fibers will not rot. It will take me years to go through 25 pounds so this will work. Thank you for all the times you have helped me.

Badd Tiki thank you for posting a note to cheer me on.

Atomic Tiki Punk I've been seeing a lot of photos of you celebrating your birthday. It looks like you had a great one. Here are more glazing photos.

Progress Report on the Wish List:

Pac Man Bob for BaconSM



It was really hard not to wiggle when painting these blue lines.

I went back and fine tuned some lines where I'd gone off track.


McTiki's emerald green, the actual name of the glaze.


Deb's lime green


Philot's blue grey Diamond Head Bob.


Mikey Tiki's deep purple.


BaconSM's leafy Bob. I picked out 8 colors for this mug.


I covered it in black. The Bobs in the back that have no eyes still need the white and black painted on their faces.


I wiped off the black from the raised areas of the leaves and bird of paradise flowers.


It took the whole day to get this far because every glaze needs three coats including every color on Pac Man Bob.

I'll be back to work this morning. I really hope to finish these today so that I can fire them tomorrow. We'll see.

Thank you for stopping by and for the notes. Cheers, Wendy

Ooooooooooooh. Nice! I'm getting anxious.

Emerald green is my fave. I just noticed that the forehead mimics the McTiki on the back!

Excellent!

Thank you!

McTiki

I've been eagerly watching watching the thread, continually amazed with each new idea you've come up with Wendy.

When I picked the blue-grey color for my request, I was thinking of how it would look where it pools on the carved part. Adding Diamondhead came later at your suggestion. I'm not sure if that's going to come out looking like stormy weather or dark of night. Either way, I'll be quite happy with the results.

I really like how BaconSM's Bob with the leaves is shaping up. Almost has me second guessing my design choice. Who am I kidding, I like them all!

That Pac-man is really over the top. One of those things where it's not really my style, but I can still appreciate the design and execution.

The Pac-man has made me curious, what's the effect of laying many layers of glaze over each other? Do you get to a point where too many layers causes problems? Is there an order you have to follow (light to dark, or vice-versa)?

Wendy,

Everything is looking great, I can't wait to see how my Palm Bob mug turns out after being fired!

Keep up the good work and all the updates, I love being able to stop by every morning and see what you have been up to!

I see you prefer "Brawney" over the "other" leading paper towel, care to comment?

Hi Friends, first off thank you for making my day. I love reading your notes. Thank you.

McTiki I have finished with Wish List glazing and they will all go into the kiln tonight. Then it will be back to the painting using your tiki.

Philot glaze turns to glass and moves as it melts when fired. That's what's bad about it. Under-glaze is more like a powder in water. It can be built up and layered and when it is fired it stays put. The only movement would be in the clear glaze used to cover it. Picture the Trader Vic's mugs with so many colors. That's under glaze. As long as you do all three layers what is under it will not show. I've used it on the entire Pac Man Bob and the Bob with leaves. I'm glad you like them all.

Mikey Tiki good morning, welcome.

Atomic Chick who knew you were a Pac Man chick too.

hang10tiki it is so good to know you are hanging around.

Tavarua Tiki I love Brawney so much that last time I poured and had a huge mess from a mold leak I had Dan photograph my Brawny clean up. Here's the premiere.

You can see that I tried to stop the leak with clay platered on the side of the mold. It was leaking out the bottom two. It stopped on its own. To avoid this pour in a small amount of slip and turn the mold to each of its sides. It will plug the leaks. Once this is done it can stand the weight of the rest of the slip being poured in.

But when you have a huge mess Brawny is terrific. It doesn't fall apart.




I like being asked questions.

Wish List Progress....I'm so happy this morning to announce that every piece has been glazed. By tonight they will be dry and I'll put them into the kiln to fire. The kiln will open up on Monday. Of course if there are glaze skips I'll be working on them one more time but there's always hope.

The Missionary's Downfall Alter Bowl after working on the small cracks. Started the painting.

Added red to the bowl and to the alter bowl holder.



BaconSM's Leafy Bob has been painted with under glaze.



Three layers of white on the faces.


Three layers of black on the eyes and mouth.


Two layers of green clear over the under glaze. Set out in the windy backyard to dry and later into the kiln shed to await firing.


I'll load them tonight. Meanwhile its back to working on the Spy/Tiki painting.

Thank you for stopping by it means so much to me, Wendy
