Hi Alohashirtbob, well I just came in from opening those molds and not one worked. Even blowing in with the straw did not prevent the collapse. So we will have to make the opening bigger. That can be done so we will do it. We are still in the learning stage for mold making. We will make it work.

I dropped one of the huge pieces off the table on caught it with my shin and foot. It didn't break but I have my leg up with ice to keep the swelling down. Wouldn't you know I'd do that the day before the big party at Forbidden Island. Oh well it makes a good story when they see me limp.

Zerotiki you are just plane sweet and so is your painting on the map.

Back after the party.

Just a wild guess that his number stands for "Tiki Bob". Just a wild guess...

Jail Bob

Sorry about the setbacks Wendy (and the sore leg), but I have NO DOUBT that you will make it work - you are so resourceful!

Party hard at FI, you've earned it!

SeaDawg, you are right. You are still a kid at heart. I put your name on the list. When I first posted it I had a typo and ebtiki let me know I needed to change a 0 to a 9. You and he were the only two who came to me with the answer. Thank you for playing along.

MDM, ice worked a miracle and I'm fine. I wouldn't be wearing a dress anyway so all the signs of being attacked by a mold are fine. When we come back from FI we will drill the openings as big as we can.

I wanted more photos of your Mohave Bar project. That whole area with Kinny's roof was so terrific. You were part of a very special place, congratulations on a huge success. How was it sleeping in the tent?

All four looked like these. I'm just glad that we know what caused it and what we need to do to fix it.







Wendy

Holy Zombie Huts, I see what you meant - they do look amazing! It looks like #50 is a blue one ...

Today I got up early at 7 am and started to glaze. I did the third white coat on all the faces and then touched up all the black and brown eyes etc. Then I glazed all of the insides of the mugs and hats. Then I started on all of the colored parts of the outside of the mugs and hats. By 6 pm I had one coat of color and every one of them. Tomorrow I will only have part of the day to paint but I'm getting there. Cheers, Wendy













I have posted photos on the event page for the Forbidden Island 5th anniversary party and the sale of my Tiki Crate mugs and statues. That was one fun party. I have some statues left if you are not on my list on page 7 and want to be added send me a PM and I'll add you. I've just started with Swizzle. Wendy

There all looking great Wendy! Congrats on the Anniversary party at F.I., sounded like fun..
I think once you make your drain hole a little larger on those crates the slip should flow out quicker and smoother and hopefully not pull from the sides.. I'll cross my finger's for ya as well.
Aloha

ebtiki, thank you for all your support.

Beachbumz, the very first one we poured was the first mold with a larger hole and it came out perfectly. The next three molds we made had openings the size of a carrot. No good at all. We will open them up as large as possible. We couldn't pour them without the glug glug so we knew right off we would fail with this first batch. I should have made the openings big when we made the molds, never again will I forget to do that.

Here's the progress on the Tiki Bob projects. Yesterday I painted every Bob and hat until each had three layers of glaze or under glaze. On the sombrero's some of the painting doesn't show up well in the photos but it's there. The clear glaze will make these bright. I did my best to keep them looking different so they can stay 1/1's. Today I will put two layers of clear glaze over all the parts that are painted with under glazes. So that means five total layers on some areas.


















It was Easter when I painted the sombrero's and it sure felt like I was doing Easter Eggs!

I have the last one 50/50 of my Zombie Hut/Coral Reef mugs up on eBay. I've listed it on Marketplace. This is the first time I've sold my art on eBay myself. I am going to have fun watching this one.






Until next time, Wendy

I'm looking forward to seeing all these mugs fired to give me some idea of how the colours change. I'll be glazing my first mugs in a couple of weeks when I go back to school and am really looking forward to it. More great work Wendy.

P.S. Good luck with the Zombie Hut mug.

Hi Swizzle, I'm jealous that you are in school for this. I've done it by reading books and asking questions. Be a sponge so I can squeeze you for answers! Well I've just finished after a whole day of putting two layers of clear glaze over the under glazes. They will dry until tomorrow night. Then I hope to fire up the kiln!

For the sombreros I bought Duncan under glazes called neons that are suppose to be super bright. Fingers Crossed. Cheers, Wendy

SeaDawg, your SOBB is in the kiln. I always fire at night when electricity is cheaper and I always try to have a full kiln. So today while waiting for night to arrive I glazed some of my Missionary Downfall woman. I'll use a couple for the Swap coming up run by ZeroTiki this time. So here's what it looked like before I shut the lid and turned it on. It will be cool enough to open on Thursday morning. This is so scary, keep your fingers crossed. Wendy
