Dang. I blame my faulty wish. We must ponder this, Wendy. Once again, it's actually kind of cool-looking in places. This is still the happiest thread on TC and and the wish will, in time, come true (maybe the splendour of it would be too great for me to handle at this time, so fate wishes me to wait).

It's always fun,

Greg

I really like that psychedelic fruity pebbles glaze on the inside of the purple bowl. You're really coming up with some killer glazes lately. I hope they start cooperating more!

Hi Professor G, thank you for waiting while I catch up on other Wish List projects.

Philot you are the person who posted closest to my 250,000 view mark. When I finish you Mayan Temple Jaguar bowl I'll include a prize for you.

Thank you everyone. We have chores today so I'll have to run now and post later.

Cheers, Wendy

These are the three whose faces I need to paint eyes and mouth on.
A smooth Bob, PacMan Bob for SM Bacon and Pineapple Tall Bob whose pineapple must be cold painted too.






Wendy, you've done a couple of Pacman Bobs. Are there glazes that fluoresce under a black light?

hang10tiki I got right back to tiki work yesterday. Those chores can just wait!
philot I haven't seen any glow in the dark glazes. They have some that are called Neon's but they are just closer to primary colors than other glazes. I use them often. It would be so cool to have some glow.

Progress Report on the Wish List:

As of yesterday I've glazed everything that had been made and fired for the Wish List. Next we will be back to casting and I'll be back to working clay. It's time to jump on those Jaguars.

Here's yesterday.

It was time to glaze Alii Tiki's Small Tiki Frankoma Bowl. Since the tikis and the bowl are different colors I used a squeeze bottle to try to keep the colors separate. It's not perfect because these tikis are so close to the bowl but I did my best.

I tried to direct the flow of Grey Spice glaze to just the tiki.

After the glaze became solid I turned it over and did it again. This was repeated back and forth to get the 3 layers on the tikis.

I painted the Alligator glaze on the outside of the bowl 3 times and used the squeeze bottle to direct the glaze onto the bowl.

The inside has Firecracker on the bottom of the bowl and at the top. In between these two layers is Wildfire. I recently found that some glazes do not blend as they melt so I've done some blending of these two colors with a brush.

After the inside was done 3 times I added the Alligator glaze to the top rim. It takes a very long time to glaze so I watched my guilty pleasure The Housewives of New Jersey. They argued through 5 episodes! Dan's so glad to disappear into his tiki man cave when I put this trash on.

I put everything out into the back yard to dry.

Winter is coming and soon I'll be using fans to dry molds and glazed tikis.

Working to have the kiln be fuller I glazed 4 SuperCarved Small Bobs.


I'm almost ready to stop glazing the bottoms. It makes a lot more work because the spikes make sharp areas that then need to be sanded.

Here Dan's fine tuning the bottom of ebTiki's TC Tapa Bob.

I had Dan grind off as much glaze as he could from the top of Purple Bob.

Then this time I added more of the Floral glaze to the tops of the tikis and bowl. Maybe this time it will come out just fine.



It was time to put all the glazes and glaze tests back in the shed.
Modern Art for the ceramicist.

I put all the glazes on trays to haul back to the kiln shed.


Top Shelf.

Bottom shelf.

The kiln will open sometime Sunday.

Thank you for stopping by, Wendy

WOW !!! Wendy, fantastic work as always.
Is that a brush or a syringe head on that bottle?
I'm loving how you're forcing the blending of the 2 glazes inside the bowl, I'm so very excited to see the results when the kiln is opened.
It seems as if I'm enabling your guilty pleasure for trash TV via my guilty pleasure of Tiki art.

Great show today, Dan & Wendy. It had it all: tension, comedy, New Jersey housewives yelling at one another, glaze . . . who could ask for better entertainment?

hang10tiki it's a really fun day when I move on to another phase.
Alii Tiki the bottle is like a syringe with a blunt tip. I hope the colors stayed separate. After college the first thing I did was subscribe to Enquirer Magazine but I can't read and create at the same time so now its those mean housewives.
Professor G thank you I'll try to keep it going with some comedy, oh I have a mopper in the family so it should be easy!
MadDogMike today the photos are just better photos of what I've shown already. They are better because you gave me the photographic studio. I love it Mike thank you again.

Progress Report:

Tomorrow I'll have photos of the latest kiln fire. Today I want to share how I looked yesterday at a party and better photos of the last kiln fire.


19TikiChef62's TAll VOLCANO MISSONARY'S DOWNFALL SHRUNKEN HEAD soon to be tattooed Bob.


The ebTiki collection.


Dan's I work hard now reward me with this test crawl mug.



The second Professor G failed to keep the spots in place mug!

PacManBob Dan's Pineapple Bob and Joanne's Hot Bob.



Now its time to get to work, cheers, Wendy

Pacman Bob, Pineapple Bob, and Wolfman Bob are really AWESOME. Well honestly everything is as usual. Condolences on the funeral. I have the tiger Bob necklace hanging in my art space now, I will try and get some pics for you next time I get down there. Thanks for sending the leather cord.

Actually, other than the blue drips on the teeth and the bleeding eyes, it looks pretty dang great. The glaring blue eyes and big white chompers are scary in a good way.
