Finally caught up on this thread again, you have been busy as always. I am not sure what I can say at this point, but all of your stuff is just beautiful. Really like how the new tiki bowl guy came out, dig that black lava rock look.

Hi Friends, I got a surprise this morning when I saw I forgot to post yesterday. I'll just post the photos today. Not many. I'm just working on the Elroy Arts Space painting. It has to be finished by the 9th.

The new molds were staying cool and not drying out in 90 degree weather so we put a fan blowing on them and it is helping.


MadDogMike you are always a winner!

Atomic Tiki Punk (:

bavtech I hope you take photos and start a thread here. I'd like to watch your progress and to give you hints. I worked Sculpey for years before moving on to ceramics.

zerostreet is the wood you use Masonite? Do you have to prep it or just paint right on it?

Tavarua Tiki thank you. This is the first mermaid I've painted and it's been fun.

Danno thank you.

hang10tiki I'm happy to hear you found teeth for grandma. I'll check up on your carving thread.

clintiki welcome. Maybe I should name the painting Serene Siren although her space has been invaded by Munktiki's Hapi tikis. Maybe she's hiding her thoughts of I wish these guys would stop ogling me.

tigertail777 I'm glad you like the King's Goblet. That was my first choice for a name though I've kicked around a few.

Progress Report:

The painting must be a tribute to the Tiki Kon Munktiki mug 2012.


First I used it for the torch and now its a beach tiki totem.


Layering the paint and trying to match the mug.


I try lots of different ways.


I still need to make the pole more 3D. After that I'll work on the beach.


Lighter


Check out zerostreets painting with the Munktiki mug. He's got it down.

Cheers, Wendy


May your 4th of July be fun and safe.

We had 9 familes bring fireworks and set up in front of our home. We had a "blast".
With so many the fireworks lasted 1.5 hours and sometimes there were 3 going at the same time. It the sky we could see fireworks from the nearby park. The booms added the excitement. What a fun block party.





Traveling Jones finally you have returned. Make it be forever. You've been missed during your move. Are you all settled in? The drawing you did for us of the Geckoma is now on glasses. Thank you too for making the friendship with Joniece possible. She and I enjoy a relationship and have many things in common.

The fourth was a big day for us. The fan worked and all the new molds were dry enough to pour.


This morning I'll be opening them and find out if they worked. This is the moai head mold.


Traveling Jones a pin up photo of Dan for you.


Thanks for checking in, Wendy

Interesting use of the mug! You addressed ZeroTiki where I think you meant me I like to use Luan boards. I buy it at Home Depot and I do gesso it, just enough to keep the wood texture visible and to keep the paint from soaking in.

zerostreet thank you for the hint on the wood. Someday we won't have the strength for ceramics and I'll just paint more. The Kon Tiki mug was a challenge to copy. I hope it is close enough.

hang10tiki it was the best 4th thank you.

Bloody Good how fun to hear that you saw my painting at the last Elroy Artspace show. I didn't hear much back on that and never knew who bought it. I'm hopeful of finishing this painting today. The Hapi Tiki likes his friends who come out at night.

My cat has a friend who "plays" with her non-stop all day. She squawks loudly but I enjoy the company when I'm in the garage. I just hope my cat is never in need of a treat during play time.



During the last Wish List I made this purple Bob bowl for Dan.

Yesterday I set it on the car hood and turned my back. I glaze the bottoms of my ceramics and this one was so slick it slid off the car.



Progress Report:

The new molds worked out just fine. I'll be making a new bowl design with this head.


The blank slips out of the mold without opening it.

As casts dry they shrink. When they are fired they shrink more. But right out of the mold this fits my hand. This can be modified into all sorts of mugs just like the Bobs.


I hope to finish this painting today. It needs tweaking of shadows for one example.

This is how it looks as of yesterday.







Now it's time to fine tune it. Elroy Artspace expects photos this weekend.

Cheers, Wendy

First the bad news - sorry about Dan's purple bowl And one of these days the cat will catch her "friend" and there will be nothing left but a feather mess all over the garage

Now the good news- you are amassing quite a pile of molded items for your next wish list, Go Wendy & Dan!!! The painting is beautiful, the Loch Ness Jr add a bit of humor - I like it And the sunset behind the Waikiki skyline is very cool.

Sorry Dan, but it does seem as if 2 of the purple bobs made it without frontal injury
Painting looks great
Cat looks hungry

Hi MadDogMike and hang10tiki, the cat is well fed every morning before we let her out. We hope that this routine keeps the bird safe. Yesterday she few into the garage and bumped into me. I was at my table cleaning tikis.


I'm so happy the the response to my painting has been good. I've decided to just have fun with it since it is all about a Hapi Tiki. MadDog thanks for helping me fine tune the painting. Here are photos done before the corrections.

Other than changing a window color and a line in a tikis face this painting is finished.

Lighter.

Close up.

Rather than frame this I painted the outside edges to look like wood grain.


Next I need to finish the Tiki Oasis 12 Spy/Tiki painting using McTiki's tiki.
I've just started on the second spy who will be looking toward the spy in the hut.


May you have a wonderful Sunday, Wendy

I love it...the "tiki spy vs tiki spy" painting. I've always enjoyed paintings that have drama and the spy stare down is great.
