Men those were so good that the head sold to my dear friend in Pearl City, Freddie. Thank you for the fun.

hang10tiki I'm going to beg for a trip to see you, SewTiki and the Golden Tiki. Vegas Rocks!

TikiAno oh that is so funny. Dan loves that his beard reached India. It was great to see you at Oasis and Tiki Ari on fb.


hang10tiki (:


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

Guess what. I did work on the Wish List #6 today but what I want to show is the wonderful tiki find that happened.
We went 45 minutes out of our town to another for a meal. Afterwards I asked Dan if he wanted to go to the antique
mall next door. He said he could skip it. I said how about just going to the tiki booth. "OK", he said.

We have 5 Coco Joes and have been searching for the last one for a year. We found it today! The only one they had for sale was the one we were missing.

The Poi Pounder in Dan's hands makes him a happy man.



Now on display in Dan's garage dusty man cave.








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

Progress Report Wish List #6

Bullet aka kingstiedye can you tell what I'm working on. Yes I'm starting your Wish tomorrow. If I don't understand how this alphabet works with the lines under some letters you better tell me quickly or it will be too late.



Cheers, Wendy

Looking forward to see the Zeppelin mug!

Breaking news: Dan's beard (#DansBeard) has made its way to Egypt. Sources are unclear, this might be another one of those "Pyramid Schemes...."

TikiAno I always wanted to see the pyramids. I'm happy that at least Dan's beard got there.

kingstiedye your mug is underway and it's a doozy!


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

Progress Report on Wish List #6.

After weeks of pouring I have called a time out. That means that I will just concentrate on making things rather that getting ready to make orders. I hope that I counted everything and that we have all I need on the shelves.


I alter this cast for Frankoma bowls.


This one if for the cannibal pot orders.


Good ol' Tiki Bob is always requested.


Here's a trick. For the small Frankoma Tikis I had to go and add more slip every 15 minutes for one hour. On the last cast I decided to make a dam and to see if that would keep enough slip going into the mold. It did. Next time I'll use my new trick.


This makes sure that the feet are as thick as the head.


I have some molds that are very leaky. I plug around the outside seams so that the slip stays in but after I remove the cast I have to clean up the molds.


They need to be very clean or they won't fit together the next time.


I dry them out before storing them.


This was my full shelf of coconuts and hula girls for the Hot Tub Hula Girls. They are now all in the house.


I needed to make room for all of these casts and


all of these casts.


This is how I keep track of what I've made so that I don't have to keep counting them all over and over again.


This is also the binder where I keep all the Wish photos and instructions.

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

From now on I'll be working all the Wishes. Wendy

Wow. Can't wait to see the wish list happen. I suppose I need to figure out a wish list item one of these times the list opens up, huh.... ?

In any case, with all this excitement, it seems something hasn't been spotted yet in the water...

(I think we need a bigger boat).


(Note: that's Dan's beard as a shark fin).

Thankfully, our aquatic friends can trim Dan's beard since everyone else lives in fear and/or awe of it.

tikiskip thank you. Freddie Coester snagged it and has told me how to glaze it so it shows the life force draining out! I think Bamboo Ben has a nicer nose.

hang10tiki that was so fun.

IDoVoodoo Love what? Dan's beard?


TikiAno Dan's handsome as shark bate. That's his favorite so far.

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

Yesterday morning Dan and I drove to Medford, Oregon for a super short family reunion. It lasted 5 hours and then today we drove back home.

I'll be posting photos to catch up on the Wish List tomorrow. Now I'm beat and ready to crash. Cheers, Wendy

Hi Friends, here's our super fast 2 day trip.

We drove past Mount Shasta and the lake. The water level in the lake was shockingly low and so little snow on the the mountain it looked parched.


We were there for a 5 hour long family reunion to see the newest addition to our family and


her brother who is now 2. I hugged everyone and we told stories.


The next morning we headed home. We did stop to look for tikis in Redding, California but didn't buy any since we had these.


We already miss our family but were so happy to have this time. Now it's back to the Wish List projects.


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

kingstiedye aka Bullet here's your first update.


Carving letters into clay is hard. To make it easier I gave myself more space. I cleaned up this fogcutter mug and


then I widened the bands on the top and bottom.


Here are the pictures that Bullet requested be used for the front and back of the mug.


I started with the back. I held the picture to the clay and pressed in an outline.


I carved it using a wooden stick that I sanded into shape and smoothed each design with a wet paintbrush.


This is the backside of the mug.


Next I will tackle the front side as shown in the other photo. I like to be challenged and this is a good one.

Cheers, Wendy

kingstiedye you design great mugs. That was the easy part. See below for more.


zerostreet Bullet challenged me with tiny hands and other parts. Clay is a fun way to play.


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

First here's a small project I completed. On a trip in a thrift store for $1.98 I found a broken tiki necklace. One leg was missing and it didn't have enough beads so it wouldn't go over my head but Dan said if I would fix it he would put it someplace fun.

Missing leg.


Using Elmer's wood filler to build the leg.


I did it with layers drying between them so that it wouldn't crack.


Sanding the detail into the patch worked better than using the carving tool. I just folded the sandpaper in half and used the edge.


Liquetex Glossies worked well to cover the whole tiki.








Dan hung the necklace on the lamp I had made for him. The Skull necklace was a present from Swizzle aka Robbie Toth.


He gave it to me when we found each other at Tiki Oasis. We made the trip to see him and were rewarded with this excellent necklace that he had made. He even strung the beads. Thank you Robbie.


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

Update on Wish List #6.

I'm working on kingstiedye's Led Zepplien mug. My next part involved taking a flat image and making it 3D on the other side of the mug.

I started by building up the clay in a shape similar to what was in the photo.


I had to let the clay base sit overnight to firm up so meanwhile I carved all the bands names along the base.


Now I just go back and forth adding


more and more small bits of clay to


build the man, his robe, the lantern. I am using a stick for his walking staff. It will be painted to match the mug. I made a hole for the end of the staff so that it can have a bit of glue to hold the staff more permanently when finished.


I keep checking the picture as I add clay and remove clay.


I build up a rock to hide the bottom of the staff.


Now he has a hand, a face and a star on the lantern. I asked Dan to come and critique the mug so far.


He noticed that both arms were lower than in the photo. He was so right so I did an amputation.


I should have more to show tomorrow. It's wonderful how clay can be worked over and over again to get it right. Black Velvet paintings are set in stone. I hope to do some of those this winter.

Cheers, Wendy
