MadDogMike it was already in the clients hands by then. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your flower cookie cutter. Clay cutting? Very clever.

===================================

I went to pick photos of the Homer Simpson mug as I progressed and found that 20 photos were the kind that turn sideways here. I posted those on facebook and I'm posting those that work on here. So a lot of steps are missing in this post. This mug took a long time and at the end weighed around 5 pounds!

I would look at the mug and then at the photo and then I would add clay in sheets.
With this one I needed the top rim to lean out like his head.


With that accomplished I moved down to the next piece.





I cut a piece for the center of the forehead.


This is where facebook has more photos of the work. Just go to Wendy Cevola if you need to be friended just request it.

So many weeks later this is what has been accomplished.





My client also sent me a Chi pet and a statue of Homer to work from.


I continued to fine tune and to smooth all the parts that were added.














More tomorrow.

======================================

RVICTOR I've made a lot of progress on your design. When I finish off Homer I'll be posting your mug photos.


Cheers and Happy Holidays, Wendy

How funny is that, I didn't even think of the fact there are two Jeff's and Lori's in the tiki world. Well the small one is for sale. I sent you a PM. Wendy

~juice of 1/2 lime
Serve over cracked ice with mint garnish and blue maraschino cherry

Wow, that picture makes the mug look HUGE! Not Homer HUGE but pretty big. Thanks so much for making the mug. And it's super funny that you might have a taker for the "Jeff loves Lori" statue as is!!

hang10tiki and that's with it empty. Drink and get a workout at the same time.

RVICTOR thank you for your patience and comment. I want to keep these Homer photos close together. Yours will come up when I finish.

VampiressRN I would love to make one of the boy king.


LoriLovesTiki the mug was huge. I don't know what I was thinking. My client was very happy with the size so it worked out.
I've know Jeffery and Lori for many years. The fact that I don't call him Jeff stopped me from thinking about the similarity.


hang10tiki Vamp has an Egyptian master bedroom and so do we. When we met for the first time it was a surprise to see that there were two homes that were tiki and Egyptian. We sure hope to see you two.

===========================================
Next up for the Home Simpson mug was to add the logo to the back of the mug. Copying is such a hard thing to do.

First I added a layer of clay. This time the letters needed to stand out.


I printed the photo of the word until I had it in the right size for the back of the mug.


I cut the added clay to the right size and


then I pressed the paper in place.


I used a razor blade and a lot of different tools to remove the excess clay.


I had to go slow so that the paper didn't move skewing the letters into new shapes.


Once I had the basic outline down I removed the paper.


All the paper has been removed here.


I sat back to see if it looked OK.


Now I used wet paint brushes to smooth the letters.


Now it's all done and that was a relief.


====================================

Thank you for watching the progress in the making of this 1/1 prototype. Wendy

All of the new Lori pieces and the Homer Simpson mug look great. So much patience- and such perfection in your carving of the letters- I've tried that once (on the "Rum DMC" mug way back) and decided to never want to copy text again. Ha! You, of course, are able to show off. I love learning by watching your carves (and seeing what tools you use, too). Hopefully we can see a photo with the (final) recipient, too.

Since I hear you're traveling in early March, you might be interested in the San Diego Home Bar crawl on March 7th? en route to Vegas?

(Jon, that goes for you, too). Wendy, Tiki Ari might be there for one of the bar stops....

Lori, you better check your mug when it arrives- Wendy sent me a photo text that there was a little visitor trying to hitch a ride. Dan caught the visitor, and (as predicted), added it to his collection. That Dan....

I do the same thing for adding names to my mugs. But I wet the paper, and then poke pin holes around the letters to give me an outline of the shapes, then I peel off the paper before I begin to remove the excess clay. I find cutting through the paper slows me down and the paper doesn't always cooperate.

The mug is looking amazing!!

LoriLovesTiki sure looks like it.

MauiTiki thanks for writing that up. I tried and there were so many dots I was connecting the wrong ones. Then I tried to just press in the outline and I couldn't get it deep enough to see. In the end I just used the razor blade first and dug it out after. Whew, copying is a bear.

I love your new lava mug.

==============================

More photos of the Homer Simpson Tiki mug in progress. It will be back to the Wish List #5 when I finish off Homer.

The sculpting is almost done. I had to go back and enlarge his eyes then add the tongue and tapa designs to his head and shirt. Next I will turn him into wood which I'll show tomorrow.

Here are the step by steps.










































He's a big guy. Cheers, Wendy
