Great colors on the leafy Bob, that is going to look fantastic. Thank you Wendy for the great coverage of the power of Brawny, I'm sold and making the switch from the other leading brand.

Maybe Pele Bob can have some for you, ATP.

Wendy, they all are fantastic. I'm really looking forward to seeing the Foliage Bob and I am poised to welcome MurphDog into the Blue Bob Brotherhood.

LOL at the Brawny story! That's what I love about works-in-progress threads, you get to see a little about how people do things. How you handle problems is sometimes more interesting than having everything go perfectly all the time.

Good Morning!

Tavarua Tiki I'm so happy to hear you are switching to Brawny it saves me from all my messes.

Atomic Tiki Punk Pele has them...

Professor G I hope the foliage will turn out well. It is so hard to tell with under glazes exactly what the end product will look like. Murph Dog will make a great addition to your Blue Bob group.

Philot when I have an error I don't get upset because I can share it here. My thread is so full of them. I'm glad to know that you and others appreciate learning from them.

VampiressRN thank you for your support you are a dear friend.

We poured slip into the two molds we made a couple of weeks ago. The molds were dry. One had no leaks and one was super bad. Brawny please. I could see where the problem was when I put it together. I have two ways to fix it. I'll do that in the future.


Here's the wish list in the kiln. I'll open the lid tomorrow. I like to glaze the bottoms so every item is on stilts. So the bottoms only have tiny spots that have no glaze.



I added a bit of movement to the water in front of the land.


I cut part of a spy out of paper to see how he would look in the hut. You'll see him added below.


Behind the foliage I painted permanent hooker's green paint that is almost black. Behind larger stones for a black sand beach I paint speckles. So first off I put down newspaper or newsprint roll end paper which is super cheap. then I cover the part of the painting I don't want to get the specks.


My tools are stiff brushes, water in a spray bottle to keep the paint thin, paint and one glove to save my hand from major clean up. If you don't have a glove you can use a baggie over your hand and run a piece of tape around your wrist.


Put thinned with water paint on the brush and pull back the bristles and let go. Change paint color and do it again and again until the area is covered.


All Done. Carefully remove the cover over the rest of the painting.


See the spy in the hut? He is watching you.


Today I'll work on the foreground of the painting and I'll open the molds to see if I got good casts of the Bobs. I'm starting now because I can wrap them in plastic and hold them until it is time to start the next wish list.

Cheers, Wendy

Wendy (and Dan),

It just keeps getting better and better with each new entry (if that is even possible)!

I cannot believe all the Bob variations and how each one is such a unique exhibition of your talents. Bravo to all of your efforts.

That painting is pretty spectacular as well, even more proof (as if any were needed) of your unlimited artistic abiltites. You make it worth coming to Tiki Central.

Sorry about the delays in getting over there. Maybe I am cursed?

Love you guys...

D

hang10tiki I hope I deserve you, thank you for being here.

MurphDog, I love this photo. Thank you so much. This is the best reward I get for the work.

Loki Tiki we should have Tiki Ba up again. There is the Blue Bob Group and now a Bob Dog club too.

Psycho Tiki D we love you too. Thank you for all the support and kind words.

Wish list progress and etc.

Along with all the other Bob conversions I did a surprise 50th birthday gift for
Rugby Matt from Deb. She has given it to him so I can now share these photos.









HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT


Sunday we poured the old and new Bob molds. One leaked horribly but in the end we got our 4 good Bobs.


I made the two new Bob molds with tall heads so I could do other types of Bob conversions.


Here you can see two at the regular height and two that are taller.


I can cut the top off at any point.


Since I'm making these for the next wish list I have to wrap them 6 times so that they do not dry out.


We poured a set of Bobs again today. But first I filled the holes that caused the leaks with clay. This photo shows one on the right filled and one on the left waiting to be filled.

After the mold was put together I covered the bottom with more clay.

I put plastic over this so that when it was placed upright it wouldn't stick to the table top.

It worked no a single leak. Here Dan is pouring out the excess slip. Notice on the mold I've written the amount of time the slip needs to set in the mold to make the thickness I like for the Bob's. Notes on molds are a big help, especially if you pull out an old one to use.


I think this is Tiki Atari selling mugs on this site.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jchaffin/the-horror-in-clay-cthulhu-tiki-mug-production-run

He has a video and as he walks away I can see one of my Tiki Bob decanter's on his shelf. Thanks Tavarua Tiki for sharing this with me. It looks like he's had over 700 sales of his mug I hope he's sending them to China to be made. It would take me 3 years to make that many.



Yes I did open the kiln this morning and I've taken out all the mugs and bowls. I need to go over each one to see if I can enhance it with cold paint or if there is a problem. Once I've done that I will photograph them and request addresses for shipping. I'll also post photos. Hopefully I can do all of this by tomorrow night or tonight.

We will be taking a few days off for a family reunion. So if we disappear you'll know we are with my sisters family having a blast.

I'll be back! Wendy

Thank you Amy. Caliente was fun because I got to meet so many new people, you included, and to have some wonderful visits with friends old and new.

I finished the Swap mug for the Volcano/Pele/Fire theme.






The Wish list will be finished tomorrow. I have to wait 24 hours before I bake those with cold paint. I wish I had one more day but our family reunion starts on Wednesday and continues the rest of the week. We should be able to ship many of these tomorrow. If I requested an address I need it now if I didn't ask you it's because I saved it from the last time.

I took these photos fast and the lighting wasn't set up right so the photos look blurry or burned out. But here goes anyway.

Opening the kiln lid is always scary and fun.




McTiki your Bob had a cold with a runny nose. I used cold paint to cover the whole face but he is not considered fixed. I'll PM you about this sad fellow.






Tiki Tonga's Missionary's Downfall Bowl. I painted the bowl this way but fired it doesn't look like I imagined. I just looks like the glaze ran.






MurphDog's Rock Solid Bob the newest member of Professor G's Blue Bob group.




Mikey Tiki these photos do not show the correct color. It is a deep purple and not a red purple.





Philot your Diamond Head Bob




Deb your Tiki Hut Bob




BaconSM Leafy Bob and Pac Man Bob










Danno let me know if this Missionary's Downfall Alter Bowl works for you.










Tavarua Tiki here is your Creature from the Bob Lagoon complete with the Doug Horne puffer fish he allowed us to use.





What's left is to bake those with cold paint tomorrow then ship them. The rest are ready to go. If you are no longer happy with your mug or life has changed and you need to cancel please just let me know. Thank you for all these orders it's been a fun journey. I'm glad you took the trip with me, cheers, Wendy
