Lunavideogames & Wendy: Yea, i've fully recovered and learned my lesson....both my lovely girlfriend and brutally honest dentist/oral surgeon made sure of that


Wendy, I absolutely love the flat brown glaze you are using on Dan's Maori lamp....so yes, definitely please use that on mine as well. We're very exited!!

IDoVooDoo I like that comment!

Tyber Tiki what you see on Dan's lamp is unfired glaze. Once it melts in the kiln it will be an entirely different color and texture. Hang it there. I'll have photos of this when it's fired. I have that red/brown color in a gloss glaze that would show off all the carving detail but first let's see how well the detail shows up with this flat glaze.

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

I posted twice yesterday so I could take tonight off. I'll be back with more photos tomorrow. Thank you for the visit. Wendy

Progress Report on the Hula Girl Hot Tub mugs. I opened the kiln and was so happy that none of them had exploded.
The girls were all just relaxing in the tubs.


The Amazing Moai was still sad all alone on the top shelf.


I unloaded the kiln and Dan and I went to work.


We scrubbed and rinsed all of them and then used buckets to take this water to our bushes in the back yard. The lawn is not being watered so it will turn brown. We hope that we Californians get to save our plants. If not our air pollutions is going to be very bad this summer.


Progress Report on Wish List $5.

I had enough for a load of glazed items to fire. I loaded the bottom shelf. I have to keep the mugs with crystals far away from those that are plain colors. That's why there is a larger separation when compared to bisque loads which can touch.

Bottom shelf.


Top Shelf.


I fit in all of my glaze tests too.


Time to go back to work. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki (: (: (; did you catch that wink?

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

I forgot to put up the glazing of Jason Martin's Maori Rat Fink before I showed the kiln firing photos. He caught it.
So here's his Wish as I glazed it.








This shows the glaze tests so I know what colors I used.


All done and ready to fire.











Hanging out with friends before they enter the kiln.


It was fun to have him find his fink in the kiln. Otherwise I might have forgotten to post these photos.
Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki Nope!

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

The kiln is open but before I could do much Bullet aka kingstiedye came running over. Because he wanted his Wishes to go home with him this year I'll ship as they are finished and I'll not do a group photo. It's easier all round. Last year with 40 boxes at the post office we thought we were losing our minds.

Here's Brooks reaction and the first black velvet photos.

His first view of the Death Tiki.





His first view of Franken Fink.





He had his Wishes come true!


Black Velvet Gallery for Wish List #5

Those are great Wendy! Great job on glazing that Fink, lots of little parts. I love the inside of the Death Tiki, really cool. I'm starting to attempt mug making. Did my first 4 part mold last week and I can't wait to see how the first casting turns out! It is so great to see how you do it, and to have all the insight and tips from your posts.

Anyway, can't wait to have a Wendy mug some day!

Tikiwahini I've loved Rat Fink since I was 10 years old so doing them is a fun project. You Rasta Bob is going to be glazed soon.

kingstiedye anything for you Bullet as long as you keep coming over for visits.

hang10tiki yours are to be glazed soon too along with Tiki Vato. I still have a bunch on the Wish List and then I have all the on Spec mugs! I'm so busy that I never have a boring moment in my day.

Woodtiki that's terrific. I hope you'll do a thread and post photos of your mold making journey. Our next mold I'll post is a five piece. No one can beat Notch or Danny G.. They have done 37 piece molds...crazy but they make wonderful tikis.

You are so close to us you need to come by for a visit.

I thought it was really nice of you to get a tattoo of me on your arm!


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

I continue to take photos of the projects out of the kiln. I need to organize some photos and then I'll post. I had one major failure. I keep saying I hope they don't explode well a long crack is just as bad and devastating to a piece of art.

Don't worry it was a spec piece that had sold but wasn't on the Wish List. I still have to let the guy know.
I'll be back later if all goes well.

Cheers, Wendy

PS Woody I'm still shocked by the tattoo

Wish List #5 continues with the latest Brotherhood of the Blue Bobs mug. This was founded by Professor G.


This mug is for my facebook friend Bob Fourbearz.


















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

Professor G your mugs are NOT done. I did one layer of glaze and I'll be adding another one and firing again. There are too many thin areas that need attention. Do you want the stars on these fogcutter mugs?






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

These three Tiki Bob's are for Paul Grande. He is also joining the Brotherhood of the Blue Bobs. Look what you started Professor G. Thank you! He is in Australia so we'll be shipping these to another country. I'll have to visit Tiki Bob in his new home someday.

Wood Tiki I think the second one suits you better!

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

Well it's been a long time since I had a failure and this one is a doozy. It wasn't part of the Wish List orders just a mug I made for fun. It had sold so it's a bummer that I had to tell Jason that it's ruined. Here's what I've done.

I took him out of the kiln once it had cooled below the temperature outside. I didn't want any of my mugs to have a sudden temperature change which can crack them.

First I noticed that there were lots of glaze skips on the mug.


Then I noticed the crack that ran down one side of the mug. It was an OH WELL moment.


He cute enough to repair and display so I got out the glue. I used my finger to force it into the crack. Then I used strong tape to pull the crack closed. I let it dry over night.


The next day I painted the mug to match the inside glaze.I started with yellow.


I next added orange, green and red.


I mixed a brown with some black paint until I could match the glaze on the outside of the mug. I painted over the crack and painted over all the glaze skips.


Now he is good enough to display but not to drink from.














When I say I'm afraid of things exploding in the kiln I should add or cracking. I'm just so happy it wasn't part of the Wish List. I've told Jason the buyer about the failure. I can always make another one.

OH WELL!!! Wendy
