Wendy the War God bowl is fantastic, a show piece for sure! Thanks for sharing the picture along with all of Dan's other huge bowls, and a few of his many mugs. I'm extremely jealous! Next we need to see a picture of you and Dan drinking from it.

Comments,

It would be cool if those tikis around the bowl were all mugs. And I'm not a fan of the bright white teeth. But you have the lava glaze down and Dan has to be happy with these new barware tiki.

Hi Friends we are up early because today we will make more molds. But first I have to open and clean those we cast yesterday evening and also work on the paintings! It's going to be a very busy day.

Trad'r Bill Frank likes being cool thank you.
Tavarua Tiki I'm happy you like them.
teaKEY Dan picked all the colors for his 5 tiki Frankoma bowl. I'm not fond of those white teeth either. When I do the Wish List everyone picks their colors. See the the next one below. I choose that color.
McTiki how do you like your tiki in the Tiki Oasis painting? I'm not done with it but I've got a good start. Thank you.

This is one of two War God bowl styles that I will offer for the upcoming Wish List. This one has three tikis and one color. Buyers will choose their color.

Bright light out of the kiln.


Dim light surrounded by black velvet.




Next up the steps to do the Elroy Art painting. I like to print photos from Google Images or my own past photos. Then I cut them up and lay them on the painting to see how they look. I pick and choose and then start to paint. This painting must have the Munktiki Tiki Kon mug. By looking at what I have hear you won't really know how I'll do it by the end.

I've added the waters edge and a palm tree.

I'm painting a tiki torch.

Torch and a plant added.


Now it is time to join Dan in the Garage to make molds. I love reading your comments so I hope there will be more soon. (: Wendy

Wendy,

Not sure if you are taking orders on the War God bowl yet, but the green one is exactly the color and number of War God heads I would like. Any idea on the price yet?

As usual, excellent work. I am currently tearing my room apart for a major cleaning and will be setting aside a ton of tiki stuff to sell at the next Tiki garage sale-tell Dan I have his mug for me!

See you soon!

PTD

Hi Psycho Tiki D we will be at that sale for sure. Dan's excited that you have that mug. When I open up the next Wish List I'll post a photo of an example and a price with it. Right now I'm concentrating on making green-ware and molds that will give more options for fulfilling wishes.

Yesterday we made two new molds and duplicated two other molds. It was taking a week to pour the four parts to make one of these War God or small tiki Frankoma bowls. So we duplicated the two molds. Using these two tikis again was nerve wracking.

But first we made a mold of an old glass vase. I wanted to have a blank so that I could add on anything. If you have a home bar that is named I can now make a mug for your bar with the name and whatever else you want.

Next we made a mold of the plastic cast I did for Roge's chunk lamps. There are endless possibilities for mugs and bowls with this cast.

Here's our day.

Our day started slowly. It took 1/2 an hour just to get these lines in the right spot. The vase must be divided exactly in half or one side will be stuck in the mold. I used a stiff and a flexible ruler.

Once I had them just right I also drew the lines inside the vase in case they wiped off when I was adding clay.

I used clay to support the vase on the wood bottom we selected for the mold. I added clay to the line drawn.

Once I had all the clay added I smoothed it with a wet paper towel and added dents for locks.

Half done.

I flipped it and removed the clay.

We flipped it over and got it ready for the next half. This was the first of four major leaks of our day. We scooped it into a bowl and poured it back in the mold. You can do this if it is still completely liquid and your table was clean.

The mold is finished. Now I have a blank to work with.


A plastic cast of the sculpture I did for Roge's lamps.

I wanted to make the tiki thicker for more options. It is easier to remove clay from a cast than to add it.

I put it on a board and finished the new clay to insure there were no undercuts. I added clay to the top and bottom so that I could pull the moai out of the mold.

It worked and now I'll be able to make bowls etc. from this mold.

Next up making another War God mold from the original. I filled the mug with clay and also added clay to the bottom so that it would be a two piece mold.

Ready to pour.

This worked fine and once again I did not ruin our original War God.

The next mold was of the small Frankoma tiki. duplications are half the work of starting fresh.

Prepping the mold to cast. MOLD SOAP never forget or the halves fuse.

Will this day ever end. 6AM to 6:30PM

All finished the last mold is done.


In case you missed seeing Dan's secret talents here they are again. Sweeping

and mopping.

Drying in the sun the new molds will take a week to be ready and then I'll start casting them.


Tomorrow I'll put up photos of the second War God bowl that I'll offer on the Wish List. Now the time has come for me to start painting.

May your Saturday be full of delights, Wendy

What a great way to spend a Sunday. I've just read all your notes.

hang10tiki I keep perfect records and tiki taxes already exist dang it.

MadDogMike welcome home you sure have been missed. Now get busy so we may comment on your work. I'm happy you gave me a thumbs up.

dartharnie there is just something very special about Jonice Franks War God. See what I've done below. Oh by the way I smile as he cleans up too.

VampiressRN I love the bowl too because it is my connection to a fine lady of art pottery. Joniece is such a master. Too bad the restaurants failed or we have more of her work out there. Well on the other hand rarity works too.



Progress Reports on the Elroy Arts Space painting and the new Frankoma Bowl for the next (3rd) Wish List.


I've decided the woman is a mermaid.


The Munktiki Tiki Kon mug must be in the painting. I put it on the torch. Wood grain first.


Close up.


To nipple or to sea shell. That is the question. Maybe I'll just cover them over with her long black hair. What do you think I should do?




Now onto the formation of the Kini Inu Umeke (King Drink Bowl) very primitive.

Giving credit where it is due.

I added wet clay to the bottom of the bowl.

I pressed him into place.

I cleaned up the excess clay.

During the bisque firing he blew his top and separated from the bowl.

I had a second one ready to go. I wondered would it happen again. YES it also blew off the bowl.

Using Magic Mend a product that MadDogMike told me about works miracles.


Here is the first one finished. These will be available on the next Wish List.








Comments please.

Now it is time to paint. Cheers, Wendy

Great looking bowl Wendy, love that lava glaze.

I'm probably going to catch flak for this but I vote for long hair over the breasts on your painting ~ some things are best left to the imagination

Realizing this might be redundant as this thread seems to hyper focus on one thing besides tikis....

nipples, please.

Ahem, that said...

The red lava rock war god looks great and I love the idea of a bowl that comes up to me rather then having to bend for the straw. However, I bet I'll be fighting the kids for it. They already called "permanent dibs" on my two Tiki Farm puffer fish bowls for their morning cereal.
