Thank you hang10tiki.

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

Progress Report on Wish List #6


The very first orders on the Wish List came during the time I was making Wish List #5. They were requests for the Hot Tub Hula Girl mugs. So that's what I'm glazing first and plan to finish them all. Then I can pair them up with the out of town orders for the Sacramento Crawl mugs. I always have a plan.

So here's more than a weeks worth of work.

I cleaned up all the mess from sculpting. Dust is an enemy of glaze. Clay makes dust. Once my home was clean I set up the table in the nook for glazing.


Dan is forever bumping, chipping and knocking over his tikis. He came to me with two damaged things. I Tiki Tony bowl and a special Sacramento Crawl mug from a couple of years back.


I told him if I was going to glaze it to pick out a favorite glaze and we'll see how it works on top of what's already there.


I filled the chip with Magic Mend for a few days. I dried it between layers. Then I put glaze right on top of it after sanding.


I lined up the 24 Hot Tub Hula Girls on the kitchen sink and got to work.


Each mug starts with the blue, water effect, glaze being poured in to the top. I let it sit 30 seconds and


poured it back out. All the glaze that goes in the wrong areas will have to be scrubbed off. That includes on the front of the coconut.


I worked in groups of 8 at a time. Once the inside was done


it was time to do 2 layers of the brown coconut glaze.


With these 8 done it was time


to do three layers of the skin tone glaze. With less than three they come out blotchy.


Here's layer 2.


Now that layer 3 is done the nipples can be glazed.


Next I do 2 layers of cover coat white and


follow it with one and then


a second coat of clear.


I did the first layer of black for the hair and


let it all dry. Then


I did the second layer.


After it dried I


did all the flowers in the girls hair.


This time they went outside to dry completely and then


they went into the kiln for firing.


Oh no, this was only 8 I have 16 more to do! These are as much work as a custom mug but I sure have had fun seeing the posts with them in use.

Cheers, Wendy

I just love the way you did the water effect on the Hot Tub Girls! That's about as cool and creative as anything I've seen yet.

amate thank you. It's really fun when something just works.

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

I feel like I'm on vacation with friends.. The Sacramento (Cap City) Crawl has started and it's off and running.

Friday Evening got off to a good start with so many of us at the Tank House for dinner.





















Our next stop was with Keith aka Muskrat and Molly where they had enough food for a whole dinner, those that missed the Tank House dined there.























FELLOW CRAWLERS FEEL FREE TO POST ADDITIONAL PHOTOS HERE.

Now it is time to get on the road and to have a full day of fun from Sacramento to Grass Valley and back. Cheers, Wendy

GROG glad you posted this.




GROG was thinking about doing ceramic with topless wahine, and when GROG google "Glazing Nipples" , the photos that came up weren't very helpful as far as ceramics go.

GROG always ready to help. This is a teaching sharing thread. I'm so happy you stopped by.

hang10tiki we are having the very best of times and there's still today.

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

Sacramento (Cap City) Crawl day two.

Today started with the first of four homes. This one is the home of Bullet and Sandy. He had a breakfast waiting for us and that was such fun. Treats and tikis and great company.



























This is Jeremy and Stephanie who will host the last stop today. I missed a photo of her at her home so here it is now.























The second stop was in Grass Valley. We first ran into Choptop and his family.


Our friends from Pasadena Jama and Joanne who are staying with Deb.


Live music, wow!





Our host Bruce with his friend.








My last photo is a photo of Bruce taking his wife's photo as she held one of my crawl mugs.




The third stop was at Barbara (Tacky Tiki) and Audrey's home. So many beautiful areas to tour and fun treats. I ate 3 candy bars.

This is VampiressRN who organized the whole show. She and Tiki Tonie designed and made the Fez hats for the occasion. Good Job!






















The last stop was for a dinner buffet at Jeremy and Stephanie's home. What a great tiki place.









THANK YOU HOSTS IT COULDN'T NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER. YOU WERE ALL OUTSTANDING FROM FRIDAY NIGHT UNTIL SATURDAY NIGHT.

CHEERS, Wendy and Dan

The Sacramento (Cap City) Crawl begins it's last day.

The first stop was downtown to Swanzberg's Hawaiian shirt shop. He also sells tikis and music. We were given wonderful Lockford Hawaiian Luau sausage treats with grapes and then we had the fun of shopping.














The second stop of the day was at the home of Lloyd AlohaHaHaHa for lumpia and pot stickers and lots of fun.












That's a cute headdress that Laura is wearing.















We were not a stop on the crawl this year but decided to invite the Grass Valley couple to our home since they did the long drive. A few others who hadn't been to our home joined in. I did a super quick 25 minute walk through and then on to the next stop.























The very last stop on the crawl was at the fun, scary, delightful home of Dr. Tiki Mojo and Eva.

































They are also into pirate activities.


Black Velvet with a flash shows up much more detail. This is by Gecko'z uncle Leo.



If you see many people you do not recognize be grateful because it means our tiki society is growing.

Well this crawl ended with so many hugs my arm muscles are sore today. It couldn't have been more fun.

Cheers, Wendy

Here we go. Progress Report on Wish List #6.

I was asked to replicate a vintage Frankoma glaze. It was a baby blue with tiny blue specks. I got out some blue crystals and crunched them smaller with the mortar and pestle.


Once they were tiny I put them into the glaze and stirred.


The waste I put in a baggy. The next time I got the the hazardous waste place I'll see how I should dispose of this. The Crystals contain lead and should be used where they would come in contact with food or drink.


After firing I found that the tiny pieces spread and made a mottled look to the glaze. A failure as to what we hoped for but OK for something else.


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

Now it was time to finish off the Hot Tub Hula Girls. One step at a time.



I had a request for a bikini top, red with white polka dots.


The next day at a garage sale I found this.


This top is for Chippy.


The previous load was ready to come out of the kiln.


I made the deadline and finished the crawl mugs two days before the crawl. Good thing I started on these last January.


Dan was thrilled with how the glaze came out on the Tiki Tony bowl I repaired.











Drying in the sun.


This is the last load of Hot Tub Hula Girls for this Wish List. There will now be 30 out in the world.








That's it for today. More tomorrow, cheers, Wendy

Progress Report Wish List #6. I'm still working on the Hot Tub Hula Girls.

It's fun to open the kiln. Especially when everything turns out. Later on I did find on nose that wasn't acceptable. I will remake that mug.


I kept the three specials together.


Now they are in the house waiting for their faces to be painted on.


Each face maybe painted 6 times before it is right. Eyebrows should be very similar and they are very hard to get right.


Sometimes the mouth looks petulant and I have to redo it over and over again.


None of this is fast.


The blond hair ran a bit onto her skin. I will call this one an imperfect mug and give the guy a break.


Here's a happy girl.


In this view all the whites of the eyes have been done and are drying.


Later these were finished. I did 6 in one day. It's a slow process.


Our shipping boxes for the Hot Tub Hula Girls just arrived. They are extra sturdy boxes for a very heavy mug.


Cheers, Wendy

Thanks for the dots - You don't monkey around



These zombie gals make me think of the Body Snatchers movie(s)

In this view all the whites of the eyes have been done and are drying.
