Wow-you two got so close to us up here in Seattle. Too bad it was a cruise with those itineraries and all. Maybe next time.

lunavideogames we saw the movie when it came out but it's been to long to recognize the house. Dan loved the movie so we'll find it to watch again.

The mossy trees were in the Japanese garden section and it was my favorite.

Tyber Tiki we were so lucky with the weather on all of our stops. We didn't visit Mendenhal Glacier because we were taking it easy on our first trip to Alaska. It is still present though shrinking.

zerostreet thank you for the photo. Dan thinks he looks so great I'm printing it to hang on the wall. That's our best souvenir since Dan didn't buy anything and I only bought 5 shot glasses and some chocolate bars.

muskrat gotcha on the list see you at the crawl.

RVICTOR Dan loved this cruise best one day we will return. If we are ever in Seattle we'll give you a call for sure.

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

I'll be back later with a tiki progress report. I've been working even though this cold has me dooooooooooown. Cheers, Wendy

Nice pics of your vacation. I really love Victoria, although I haven't been there since I was a teenager. I do remember touring the castle and the Butchart Gardens were amazing!

PART II FOR TODAY

hang10tiki there are so many funny jokes about being stuck watching slide shows of someone's vacation but I've always enjoyed seeing where people go and also sharing what we've seen. I just try to pick out the best photos. I love it when you share yours here.

cy your yard looks like the best of Alaska rain forests. We sure enjoyed our visit with you. Going to Oasis?

JenTiki the gardens are an easy place to enjoy over and over again. I was just thinking of you. I carved the new mug last night between coughing fits. The germs will burn off in the kiln! I'll have photos soon and you can see if you like it as well as the first. It's carved as deeply as I could and still be safe, I hope!

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

We had a box waiting for us when we got home. It came from Pocketiki of England. We did a swap this box for the Tiki Bob's that matched his vintage set.

Thank you so much James and Sian. Dan's thrilled to also get this new music. He's found new favorites on each one he's played. You have similar tastes to his.









We really are happy to have this mug and poster to go with the book. We had lot's of our art and collection in the book and this makes it all the more special.


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

I'll be back a third time with more tiki progress photos. I feel that if I don't move I won't get well as fast so I'm staying tiki busy with lots of breaks.

Cheers, Wendy

Part III is short, this cold is still taking away my energy.

LoriLovesTiki you mug is done and ready to ship. I'll let you know when it's on the way.

Here are photos of the "fix".


After glazing and firing this Bob needed a face lift.


The only way to "save face" was to cover it completely with white enamel. One layer and then it dried overnight.



The next day I sanded the paint and applied a second layer. Again it dried overnight.


The next day I added a third layer. This time I wanted to have the brush strokes disappear as much as possible. So after the paint was applied I wet my finger and rubbed the paint smooth. This took about 6 times to get the whole area smooth. I painted his mouth and eyes an hour later and one more time he slept overnight. Today he baked in the oven at 325 degrees for 45 minutes to set the paint.


He isn't all glaze with this fix so Lori you will get a very steep discount on your mug and it doesn't fulfil your wish when you see it I'll make it again from scratch.














Now it's time to take this cold to bed. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki you are such a great guy. We look forward to seeing you and Sew Tiki at Oasis.

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


I put about 8 layers of glaze on Jen Tiki's first Wish mug. In the end I offered to sell the first one at Mahalo Tiki's booth at Tiki Oasis and make hers again. She decided that she would like it all blue on the outside and green on the inside.
So here's how it is right now.


Since all these Tiki Bobs I do are carved by hand they never come out the same. That's good because they are all 1/1's.


Soon I'll only be doing Tiki Bob's by request on the Wish Lists because I've already made so many that I still need to glaze and sell. I've had a lot of fun with Tiki Bob but now it's time to work on new projects.

















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

The Hula Gril Hot Tubs are finished. I'll be contacting those who ordered them soon and I'll post photos tomorrow.

I hope your having a fun Saturday night. I'm still fighting this cold but today we went to the clinic for Dan. He got a spider bite that looked bad enough to have it checked. Antibiotics and cortisone cream for him. We are staring the summer out by getting past all this so we can have fun the rest of these months!

I hope you are all well. Wendy

The Hula Girl Hot Tubs (6) are done along with my entry into the art show and sale at Tiki Oasis 15 (Rotorua Rocket).
Here are the last steps to completion.

Upstairs in my hobby room I got out the Liquitex Glossie enamel paints. I started with the eyebrows, whites of the eyes and top eyelashes.


Next I finished one right down to the ruby red lips.


All done except for waiting overnight to bake in the oven to set the paint.


Now it is the next day and before baking I posed them for photos and


more photos.


Now into the oven for the first batch.


The first day I also did the space travelers face.


All done.


Final photos.

















Into the oven and now they are all done.


It sure is fun to play with clay, Wendy

Looking at the last photo it makes me think of a puffer fish face. Do you see that? Wendy

Hi Wendy and Dan,

Glad you had a fun and safe trip. How is either Saturday the 13th or the 27th for a visit and tour of Dan's Jungle and Tiki Collection?

IDoVooDoo the 13th sounds perfect. ================================================

Now it's time to start showing the SACRAMENTO CRAWL mug for 2015. The crawl takes place on October 2nd, 3rd and 4th and has been planned by VampiressRN. This years is going to be an especially fun time with homes from Grass Valley to Woodland and a bunch in-between.

The mug this year is based on Sacramento's Bali Hai. No one knows much about it so I've used the telephone book advertisement. I've been working hard on this one, it's a huge fogcutter mug.

This is my inspiration.


I took a fired cast of my new fogcutter mug and


made it bigger with Romo Clay #2. This clay is hard to work with so I use a wooden thumb.


All done.


Inside the mug I marked the mug into halves. I need to keep them in mind for molding the mug when it's finished.


I began to layer the clay to build out the tiki head.


I built it out further than needed so that I


could use a knife to cut straight down to the bottom of the mug. I didn't want his bottom out further than the bottom of the mug.


I just checked here and found that I needed to round the face or it would look like a robot.


I added clay to the middle.


Nice and rounded.


Now I started to carve the detail into the face.


Outlined.


As I proceed with the mug I'll revisit this area to fine tune it.


I'm going to show all the steps to make this mug. The mold will be a five piece mold and that will come up after the sculpture is completed.

On the way to the crawl, Wendy
