Got the Wolfman Bob and the Crawl mug today.

I am completely blown away. They are both so different and so wonderful.

Tomorrow I open the door with Candy and one hand and a Zombie filled Wolfman in the other.

Thank You.

hang10tiki does that mean I could start a new career?
dartharnie that would make a great photo...

Progress Report Wish List #3:

I started the day by opening the molds and pulling out the sea creatures.

I need 18 Bob's. I've found that the temperatures outside have slowed the drying time of the molds to 2 days. Soon there's going to be rain so its time to hustle.

I cleaned up the sea creatures.

Using a board to support them I put them in zip lock bags with a wet paper towel and onto a shelf. Nothing is drying out in these bags.


Next up the Mayan Temple Jaguar Bowl. I started to do the steps at the bottom and then wised up. I needed to be able to correct it if it didn't work.

As I started at the top I could see that I'd need to add clay at the bottom. This was so hard that I really commend the original builders. They mastered perfection. I'm struggling with each "step".

After the steps were finished I started on the larger walls. 4 hours to complete these steps and I didn't have to chisel huge stones.

My most dramatic photo.


All of this temple will be fine tuned as it dries. I still need to carve out the inside of the pyramid. If I don't then this will crack as it dries.

Thank you always for checking in, Wendy

Yeah, how did you do those?! Hand-paint them or use some sort of pen? They turned out really nice!

I was wondering about that. That pyramid looks like it would weigh a ton if it was solid.

Thank you Professor G, that's how I feel about your photography.
Philot I did the tattoos by painting them by had with enamel paint and then they are baked in my home's oven to set it. I've started carving out the inside of the Mayan pyramid. I hope to start on the the jaguars today.

It was Halloween. We handed out 540 pieces of candy and then went inside and turned off the lights. Our next door neighbor had a haunted house and as word spread we had cars pouring in.

This is just one small spot in three car garage filled with spooky stuff. I never worked tikis yesterday but I will today.

I hope you had a fun Halloween, Wendy

Wendy,

My mind just exploded looking at the photos of the Mayan Temple Jaguar Bowl. Thanks very much- now I have to find a mop and start cleaning up after my own head. Love it. Still smiling, though- the photos are great and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Thank you MadDogMike and Tiki Ano. It's fun doing something that needs some building experience with both clay and bricks. My mom was an expert brick layer.
Here she is in my childhood backyard which she built with my dad as her helper. She not only built an 8000 brick wall she put in the flagstone, beamed roof and built the furniture she is lying on. What I do is something small my mom built big!

When we moved from this home the wall was being pushed over by a neighbors tree so we tore it down and took it to the next home where she covered the front of the house with the brick. She was only 4'10" and a powerhouse.


Progress Report Wish List #3:

The wish of Philot...

The Mayan Temple is finished.To stop it from cracking I dug out the excess clay.

This shows how much I was able to remove. I've learned that it will always crack if the walls are not the same thickness.

I added some more brick lines.

If only I was as good as my mom. Her bricks were always level. This temple is very old and has been through a lot of earthquakes and storms so its weathered.


Next I've started on the first of the three jaguars that will support the bowl on their backs. I only have this one photo to go by. It's not a perfect jaguar but the Mayan artists rendition of a jaguar.

I scooped out the back where the bowl will sit and started to form the head.

I don't just carve away clay I add it to build cheek bones etc.

From the side it looks one way but from the front another. Because of that I may build and remove over and over again. Here I've added more clay close to the nose.

Once it was formed to a close approximation I used a tool to remove clay inside the head.

Now it has an empty head.

Now I go back to fine tune the head adding clay above the eyes.

Now I've worked on the teeth the photo shows that I need to work on the nostrils.

Photos are a great help. I can see that the long teeth are not as thick as those made in stone. Today I'll go back and add clay. When this one is done I'll make the other two. They will all need hollow bodies which will just be block stones. The bowl will also be blocks.


It's time to sleep a few more hours before the work begins. I woke up and decided to post to get sleepy again. Cheers, Wendy

Great work Wendy. It's quite amazing to see the progress. You have no idea what the finished object will look like until it is, actually finished. From such a basic shape, it is not until it is fine tuned and all the detail is added that you can really see where it started from and how those humble beginnings don't actually show the what it is really going to look like, or the work involved to get it there.

Love the temple and jaguar. Looking very cool Wendy! Are you going to have creeper vines over the temple, or just leave it as is?
