hang10tiki me too! I've been working on RVICORS mug for two days and today will be the third. Some go fast and some do not. I'm working on the next kiln load. Yours will be in it along with ebtiki's and LoriLoveTiki's mugs. Photos soon.

Tyber Tiki will do. Yours will also be in the next load. I only have 3 mugs glazed and RVICTORS being worked on so it will be awhile.

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

Progress Report for Wish List #5.


ebtiki took one of my Tiki Bob's from page 406. He requested traditional colors.











The little white spot at the bottom is light flash on wet glaze.


Clear gloss over underglaze.


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

These next two mugs are for hang10tiki.


These are all the glazes for the first mug.


I start with all the black and white.


Then layer one and then


layer two of the clear gloss glaze.


If you have glaze in a bowl and you need to take a break for lunch all you need to do is put a very wet paper towel over the bowl and even the brush and it will be perfect when you start again.


Now I did the leaf green and Caribbean blue colors on the outside of the mugs and brown on the coconuts and tiny Bob.


All done.


It looks like I did these all in one day. Not so because it takes three layers of each glaze.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki if electricity was cheaper or I had a small kiln I sure would do these faster. Oh well anticipation is fun too. I hope they turn out really well for you.

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

Here was one more photo of IDoVooDoo's necklace from the side. I need to start printing addresses so Dan can ship these projects.



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

Wish List #5 progress report.

So far RVICTOR's Tiki Modern mug has been the hardest to glaze. Fingers crossed it turns out well. I spent 3 days on this one mug.


First I choose the colors that matched the cover of the book best. This is a terrific book to add to your collections.


Then I started with all the black areas using the book and RVICTORS excellent drawing. If you are watching his thread you know he could have done this mug himself. I'm pleased he choose me because I like to be challenged.


Every color has to be done 3 times. It's best to let them completely dry between layers.


Next the orange/red and then


the caramel color.


Here's where the slow down began. To match the book I needed to keep the first color out of the indentations.


The first caramel layer is done.


Here's the mug so far from


each side.


I changed rooms the next day so I could listen to some mindless chatter on TV.


The second layer of caramel is added.


This same day I did the third layer.


Now it's beginning to look like the cover.


The underglaze (Duncan Concepts) that I am using is a gloss. So now it was time to do a white glaze over the white bisque. I got out the little squeeze bottle.


I had a visitor! He said your lines are not perfect. Oh well!


You can see how well this works. I couldn't do this with a brush. I fill it up completely and that equals the 3 layers. I couldn't do that with the caramel because it would run into the indentations and then I'd have to clean it out. That happened with the brush too even though I was very careful.


This is now finished and hopefully it will resemble the book close enough to be recognizable.


All of Sven's books are wonderful and he also has a video too that we love.


My hope is that all the glaze stays put and comes out good. I did my best.


Cheers, Wendy

Thank you ebtiki but it's all RVICTOR's idea. I just had to read his mind to pull it off. Well and look at his drawing.

Wow Wendy, everything is amazing! The Maori is crazy, and I love the tapa Bob.
Question on the glaze on this new one... Why didn't you paint white gloss over the whole half, then carmel on top of that? Just in the areas you want? Glazing seems like such a random thing. Like what you think will work, doesn't.

Anyway, just curious.

Wendy - It looks great. I kind of feel bad that it took so long to glaze. We could have decided to shortcut on the white inlay white detail...but I guess then it wouldn't be as cool.
Looks great!!! We will all be crossing our fingers that the kiln gods smile upon the Tiki Modern mug.

You keep mentioning that I could have done the mug myself...but then I wouldn't have a Cevola for my collection. Gotta have at least one of all the greats!

Woodtiki it all comes down to what you need to do to correct mistakes. The Concept glazes will override each other which is wonderful. So doing it this way when some of the caramel glaze ran into the indentations I could use a slim brush to wipe it out. You can't get it all but then adding the white this way on top of it hides the mistake. If I did the white first and then caramel it would be harder to hide a mistake and I might end up going back and forth. You don't want to build the glaze up too high because it then will run.

Or look at it this way. I didn't want the glazes to blend with each other. So the caramel glaze was stuck to the bisque fired piece and the white was stuck to the bisque fired piece. Hopefully that helps to keep them from running or blending with each other.

Also when I filled the indentations with the white glaze it filled and helped to make the caramel lines look straighter than I painted them. Hopefully.

We'll see if any of these expectations really come to be proved.


RVICTOR you are sweet. Artists rarely are paid for all the hours they put into their pieces. We just work to get compliments. I'm a ham and I love them. Now if it works...

hang10tiki I wish I'd thought up that design. That's what makes the Wish Lists special. Things are made that I'd never have done on my own. I hope Sven approves of it.

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

Wish List #5 progress report.

Tiki Vato your Cactus Body Bob is glazes and waiting for kiln time.

Tiki Bob is upside down because I just glazed the bottom of the mug and it's drying. This photo shows the blotchy green glaze I choose to use.


His eyes and mouth were painted and then clear glaze put on his face and inside the coconut mugs in his hands. I've filled the lid with glaze by plugging the straw hole with my finger.


I removed my finger and let the glaze drain back into the jar. When making a lid you want it to fit as tightly as possible. But you always need to leave room for the glaze layers. So after glazing the inside of the mug I checked to make sure it still fit. The rim of the lid is not glazed in case it needs to be sanded to fit in case it's too tight.


Layers and layers of


glaze all around the mug and on the lid.


Now I've painted the lovely set of coconuts!


Front and


Back.


The last couple of steps was to enhance the cactus thorns. I used a knife to scrape off the glaze on each thorn. Then I wiped them with a wet paper towel.


I then painted each one with layers of white glaze.


All done and posing.











Tiki Vato what drink is appropriate for this mug?

Time to get back to glazing. Cheers, Wendy

Holler Waller it's melting...when it goes into the kiln.

TheBigT thank you. Tiki Vato is out having fun. I hope he sees his tiki Bob soon.

Tyber Tiki the colors are as close to the book cover as I could find. We'll see when it comes out. Your lamp has been glazed but I just did two layers. If it's not dark enough I'll add more and fire it again. I don't want all the carving filled up with so much glaze that it's hidden.

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

Wish List #5 progress report

My work space had filled up with glaze jars from all the projects so I took time to haul it back to the kiln shed and to organize it again.


Tyber Tiki's Maori Lamp one of a kind is up for glazing. He decided on a dark brown that highlights the carving.


I started with the bottom.



Just for fun I ran some glaze over the carving just to see what it looked like.


Enough fun now I covered it with the first layer and when that dried


I put on a second layer.


All done and put with those waiting to glaze.








I did two layers. If this wasn't enough I can add one more. You can always add more glaze but you can't remove it.

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

LoriLovesTiki's mug says Jeff Loves Lori on the back.










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

Professor G's Palm covered fogcutter mugs have had another layer of glaze added since the first firing.
I've started Professor G's small Maori Peanut Bob, photos soon.




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

Here's the rest of the Wish List except for



Dan's wishes and all the mugs I've made on spec. Still covered here.




I'm not starting Dan's until everyone has their Wishes fulfilled. Cheers, Wendy

Thanks Wendy, I'm hoping to get an idea of it before ruining too many mugs trying glazes! Poor Dan, does all the help and is last to get his mug. Such is life!
