hang10tiki for a moment I thought you thought IDoVooDoo's necklace broke and then I remembered our concrete moai. At least it still looks good on it's side.

Wow I love the letters, thank you for sharing...and maybe putting them in place???

TikiHula I sent you a message.

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

Progress Report on Wish List #5.

Tyber Tiki has decided that the HUGE Maori mug/lamp should be a lamp. So he requested the lid and hole so that he can adapt it once it is in his hands.

When I made the first lid for Dan's it took a long time and it wasn't as nice as I would prefer. So I figured out a better way with what I had available.

I had already cast one of my tube mugs and it has been sitting on a shelf waiting for a purpose. I cut off the bottom and set it aside.


I cut the top in half and


wet my fingers and began smoothing it flat.


I put a piece of plastic wrap on top of the clay so I could use Dan's top as a guide for cutting.


Next I folded the plastic over on the leftover piece and put it in a plastic bag for another project.


Now that the first piece was cut I put a lot of sticky clay on top. I cut the top off a tall Tiki Bob mug and


pressed it down into the sticky mess.


I cleaned it up and cut a hole for the lamp fixture.


I put it on top of his lamp and then I


cut more off. I left enough so as it dries and shrinks it will still be large enough.


Then I drilled a hole at the bottom for the cord.



Once I have finished my "work" day for the Wish List I am free to play.

The bottom piece I cut off the mug was just begging to be turned into a bucket mug.

I just had fun playing with this and doing a fast carve of 5 tiki faces.

















I just love playing with clay.

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

More on Frankin Fink tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

A double post tonight. I hope that's OK.

Here are all the photos showing how I did the hands on kingtiedye's (aka Bullet's) Frankin Fink.

First I strangled the mug to make a neck. Then I started building up the arms.


I also cut the bottom platform to resemble paving stones.


I added fingers and a shabbiness to the bottom of his trench coat.


Next the sleeves were made shabby and one hand was stitched on.


After the clay had dried enough I was able to use a skewer to scratch the clay fingernails.


Done.


How's that two in one night. Dan pull me away from the computer....Daaaaaaaaaaan!

Thanks Wendy for posting photos! It was so fun having you and Dan over. I'm glad you are enjoying your mugs!

I swear I need to spend more time on TC, but then I'd have no time for mug making. Someday when I retire! Ha!

ALOOOOOHA!

Goodbye Maui, Maui Rob and Beachbumz. Thank you.
We had a great time.

These arrived from Maui Rob. The three on the left all alterations of the same mug. It's the tiki from our hotel.


Here's the tiki for comparison. How fun is this? VERY!


Beachbumz and Maui Rob have wonderful tikis for sale. They are here on Tiki Central and easy to contact.

Wendy, you truly are one of my FAVORITE Artists. I love all the detail; and it's so blatantly obvious that you put all kinds of love and care in to your work. I can't wait to hang out sometime.

Skol!

MauiRob you and Beachbumz do exquisite tiki work. See you in the future.

IDoVoodoo that sounds like fun but I have to tell you that once here Dan will nab you and off to the man cave or jungle room you'll go! Your note brought a huge smile to my face but not as huge as your necklace.

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

Progress Report for Wish List #5.

kingstiedye's (aka Bullet) Frankin Fink project.

Yesterday I showed the hands held behind his back. Now I'm "backing" up to the front that was started first. I wouldn't want you to think I amputated his arms.

This is how the front looked once I finished the long trench coat and feet.


I started adding details.


Side view.


I started to build out the arms and


elbows.


Now he rested overnight in a plastic bag to firm up.


The next day it was time to work on his face.


Mouth outline and bolts in neck.


Next I did the detail on the shoes.


Creepy grin.


Now I built up a ridge for the eyeballs to sit inside.


Time to let him sleep.


Thank you all for the visits and comments, Wendy

hang10tiki the shoes were really fun to do, I'm happy to know they were noticed.

WooHooWahine I'll remind him that he needs to do that. Right now all he wants are tikis and more tikis.

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

Progress Report on Wish List #5

The Frankin Fink for kingstiedye aka Bullet is finished being sculpted. Glazing will be a huge challenge but for now it just has to slowly slowly slowly dry out to prevent cracking.

I worked to finish the eyes and brow ridges.








Now it was time to give the guy some teeth.


Some done.


All of them done.


Hair and head stitches.


Close up.


All done and posing.

















Now that he has dried some I'm fine tuning his teeth


and the FF letters. Very carefully I shave off dry clay.


Now the letters look better.


kingstiedye did I fulfill your wish?

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

Next up will be IDoVooDoo's coconut with his personal tattoos on the front and back.

Cheers, Wendy

He's pretty fantastic Wendy. Can't beat a great Fink! His hair and the shape of his head turned out great - love the stitching!

Tikiwahini the art I copied had it all. Hopefully I can glaze this well enough to match the toy. I'm so glad you like it. kingstiedye is on a trip so he hasn't looked at his Wish yet.

hang10tiki I think I need to make a Tiki Fink. I'm thinking it through. I loved carving Rat Finks out of bars of Ivory soap when I was a kid. These Fink projects take me back in time.

Dan's having a wonderful birthday.

RVICTOR Dan's says Thank you very much.

Dan thanks everyone who sent him birthday wishes.

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

Progress report for Wish List #5. This project is for IDoVooDoo and it is the last one to be sculpted for the Wish List.
Now everything needs to dry slowly so that I can bisque fire them and then glaze and fire them again.

Step by steps for the Tiki Torture Bamboo Bar Coconut mug for IDOVooDoo.


One side of the mug has the tattoo from one side of his neck.


He had this print and it really helped.


I'm not sure what part of his body has this art but it will also go on the coconut.


This is how we hoped to make it. It didn't turn out like this but I hope it will still make him happy.



Dan and I poured in the slip filling the mold.


Dan gets to do the clean up.


Two hours later he poured out the rest of the slip.


The next day I opened the mold and


cleaned off the mold lines.


I started with the skull on one side and then I decided to work


on the other side by starting the octopus. I cut a slab of clay into the basic body shape and attached it with slip as glue.


Then I added very soft clay to form the shape.


Close up.


IDoVooDoo wanted a 3D mug of his tattoos. If this doesn't work out for him then I will start another one from scratch. If I don't fulfill a Wish then there's no obligation to take it.

More on this project tomorrow. Dan's nap is almost over and we need to go play some more for his birthday. Cheers, Wendy
