On the volcano/lava bowl... I didn't see any defects? What was wrong exactly?

Like others said all of it was still beautiful, but a little sad. Those wahines look kinda pissed off. Is there anything you can do to help fix them? Or once glaze "crawls" is there no going back?

I always marvel at your patience working on these things. I would probably throw a temper tantrum like Donald Duck in those old Disney cartoons where he destroys everything in sight.

Wendy,

I so love the cannibal bowl! What a fantastic creation. I'll be jealous of whomever gets picked as your swap partner. Unless it's me, then I'll do the happy dance!!!

What a great way to start the month of August. I appreciate all of your notes.

GROG I wish I could repeat the inside of the Maori mug. I've glazed with that color before and I've glazed those types of mugs. None of them had this effect show up. I hope I was able to keep it with the clear covering it. This one was a mystery.

Atomic Tiki Punk me too but more than sad I see a challenge.

lunavideogames since Dan grabbed the volcano for his gecko bowl I'll have to eventually make one for my Tiki Island bowl. I'll experiment again when I do that.

TikiAno it may happen to you one day! The glaze was Autumn by Duncan. I'm looking forward to you making volcano's and Bob's.

hang10tiki Oasis, Oasis, Oasis.

tigertail777 ( On the volcano/lava bowl... I didn't see any defects? What was wrong exactly?) The
glazes separated leaving areas of un-glazed bisque in white. I filled them in and re-fired last night.

I decided that since so much of the black glaze spread on the wahine faces that I would just try to cover it all with skin glaze and then paint the faces with enamel. I don't know how well that will work but I did that and the bowl is in the kiln.

With the crawling glaze you go back and scrub it well and then do three more layers of the same glaze. You cross your fingers and re-fire.

(I would probably throw a temper tantrum) You would not, you are going to move your pillars in the painting. That's harder than any repair I need to do. But the image you presented was very funny.

LoriLovesTiki I would love to see the happy dance on UTube so good luck!

------
Reading all your notes started my day off really well, thank you all.
------

Working to cover the face with skin glaze.


The I figured out how I wanted to do each of the AP glaze tests and wrote them down. That way I'll know how many layers of brown and the other colors went on each one.

These are the colors and supplies I used.

I started by doing the inside of the mug and the bottom in the Espresso Brown and labeled the bottom with the number matching the list.


For one of the mugs I painted in the colored glaze into the lettering.




Then I painted the green glaze to match Dan's eyes and black into the mouth and nose.


After this dried I used wax resist to cover the colors. I tried to keep it away from the outer edges so that I wouldn't end up with any white unglazed areas when I spray on the brown. I couldn't do a perfect job. Also if specks fall anywhere then that spot will not glaze. The only way to remove wax is to burn it off in the kiln.

After working with this product for 1.5 hours I knew that I will not do this process for the crawl mugs. Too many possibilities for ruining the glaze.

Dan set it up and I began to spray the mugs according to the list.


In the past I would set the mug on the wheel and glaze would pile up and I'd have to stop every few mugs and wash the wheel. Today I decided to try using the spikes I use in the kiln.

The spikes worked really well. I didn't have to...Dan didn't have to wash the wheel until I
was all done. He's working for tikis.

I managed to knock one tiki off the spikes and onto the lawn.

I scrubbed the grass stains and hopefully got them off so that the glaze will not pull away.


Next I sprayed the mug that had wax resist. I saw that on the R I had missed a loop.


I sprayed the front. I tried to wipe off the glaze on the wax resist and it just smeared. Today I wish I had used water to wipe it. Too late now.


I thought I had all five done

so I called Dan to clean up.

When they dried I put them in the kiln with a long preheat to make sure they were also dry inside.


In the middle of the night I remembered that I hadn't completed one of the glaze tests where I would wipe away the brown glaze and then paint in the green and coral. So one test was ruined. Even writing notes doesn't prevent mistakes. Hopefully I will have learned enough here to figure out how I will do the mugs. I plan to finish some with enamel paint and baking them in the home oven.

Today I have to get back to working on the painting for Oasis 13. It will be here soon.
Thank you always for the visit, cheers, Wendy

Wendy, I have been busy lately and so I spent some time today catching up on the Dan & Wendy Show.
Glad your sciatica is responding to the photo therapy, I know you have been dealing with that for a long time.
The BamBob, IntoxiBob, UkelaBob, and the Don't Worry, Bob Happy mugs all look great
The volcanic glazes look awesome as does the black metallic glaze on the Cannibal pot
We think a lot alike Wendy. When I saw the inside of the Maori mug, my first thought was glear glaze too. It will be cool to see how that turns out.
Sorry about the creeping face glazes. The girls look angry and I'm sure you look frustrated.
SEE YA SOON!!!

GROG got "Zipper Bob" in the mail today. Thank you Wendy. He is wonderful. GROG really like the glazes you used. Roommate said GROG can't use it yet, because GROG not yet inducted into Zipper Club.

I concur, the inside of the Maori mug was a win....I wish you could repeat it so you can say "I now have a new addition to my bag of tricks"

and as for your list...T.V. taught me (thank you, Dad! for forcing, the damn British channel on me...that's what mom called PBS when i was growing up)


(have at it grog)

hang10tiki thank you, it has cooled off and later today I'll open the kiln.

dartharnie Gosh I'd forgotten about that guy. I used to watch him when I was in high school.

MadDogMike isn't it fun to know that there is something new on the way?
I feel the need to say thank you a whole bunch. TU TU TU TU and its a privilege to think like you.
I am just relieved that the face didn't creep on the cannibal bowl since it has a deadline. Funny isn't it, same glazes, same task and different results.

GROG roommate right. They should bring it to you in the hospital to use to drink your diet of red juice, red Jello and red liquefied meat. Zipper Bob is only as wonderful as you. I hope you have fun with him after the ordeal is all over.

Thank you for all the photos. I can't take them that close because TC flips my photos sideways.



dartharnie maybe this glaze froze in the winter and will do it on flat surfaces forever. I'll have to try it again. We like British TV series too.

GROG ???

---------------------

Just because I took the photos of GROG's mug in progress I'm going to post them because I have little to show today.

Carved in clay.

Sanding.

Brushing and then Dan did the air compressor.

Firing then I washed it.

Painted the letters three times.

Rubbed off the glaze that wasn't embedded.

This was an experiment. I used a glaze that was a light color and I painted over the black lettering.

I finished the glazing.

Out of the kiln the lettering showed up just fine.



All day yesterday I worked on the painting for Oasis 13. It is still not done but I made it a much
hotter place to be for the woman. Any moment her grass skirt it going up in flames. I can't seem to take a good photo without glare. These even are fuzzy. I added a lot more color to her skin.




There are problems and details to finish. Example look at her waist on the right and the skirt. I've already started on the fix.

I have to keep working on the painting until I finish. Oasis is around the corner. Cheers, Wendy

The crawl mug looks great, as usual. Are you doing the Oasis painting left handed again?
