Thank you so very much Beachbumz, rugbymatt, LOL Tiki, Lucky Jackson, little lost tiki, mp and McTiki. It makes my day to find that I'm not alone and that so many friends and friends to make are watching my thread. I'm having so much fun with these. Next year after the Sacramento Crawl is over I'll be able to enter one of my decanters into the show. Today I needed to go to fill up all the empty slip jugs and to pick up glazes that I can use on these Bobs. MadDogMike said Duncan Underglazes called Cover Coat do not run. I didn't have these yesterday but today I do! That also means more glaze tests and my wall is full of all the chips. The search is on for more wall space.

One Fifth of the amount of slip to pour the Tiki Crate Mugs/Statues for Forbidden Island. They are large and some are thick and weigh between one and two pounds.


Yesterday we Made our first 6 sided mold. It was of the decanter for the crawl. It took 7 straight hours and Bubble Wrap. I was afraid that I would ruin detail so I started with bubble wrap then a layer of cardboard and then the clay. Here are step by step photos of how we made the mold. Dan said it was by my brain and his brawn! What's a brawn? Cheers, Wendy


















































































I use a straw to blow the mold soap out of my lettering.





























For every side there is a massive amount of clean up. Dan's really good at mopping and sweeping. If you have not seen his skills on my carving thread (now on page two) check it out. He's my sweetheart!

Am I the first mold maker to use bubble wrap?

When we are ready to make the second mold using the first I'll have more photos of how that is done. I hope this mold will have the detail if not I'll hand carve every one of them just like I've done with the tiki in the crate. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy I am sure you can tell by now that I love, love, LOVE Tiki Bob...so I am in love with all yours- love the peace sign hippy Bob a lot!


But I can NOT wait to get a finished Bob decanter!! It will be the focal point of my Tiki Bob collection (which includes art by Sam Gambino, MP, Lake Surfer and Grog) and I am looking forward to seeing the completed piece eagerly.

October can't come soon enough!

6 SIDES!!! WOW impressive! I wouldn't even know where to begin making a 6 sided mold. (I guess with bubble wrap). I can't wait to see the finished product. Keep up the great work and keep the photos coming we love them!

That's awesome Wendy. Your photos are extremely helpful to anyone new to mug making, like myself , and it's fantastic that you are showing this to people instead of keeping it all a secret. Whilst we all learn by trial and error, having your posts to guide us through all the different steps is extremely helpful. Keep up the great work.

Haven't used bubblewrap, but GROG has used newspaper as filler. Looking good Wendy. Good job Dan.

Hi BigToe, ebtiki, Swizzle, MadDogMike and Grog. I love reading your comments.


Mold making has been a huge secret. The joy of having total control of your art from start to finish can't be beat. I was very lucky to have Kingstiedye introduce me to Mike a master mold maker her in our area. With one lesson we have been able to start out on our own. I want everyone who has the desire to be able to learn to make molds and to create and share their art. Anything I come up with I will post here.

I love to watch MauiTiki's thread and now swizzle's. Mold making techniques are to be shared especially among TC'ers.

Hugs for all of you, Wendy
