hang10tiki Dan loves these posts. He looks better than the other guy.

GROG I see how much you like topless pictures so here's one for you. Dan's packing up the Sacramento Crawl mugs to ship.


They stack up here and


there and eventually this morning they got all the way to the post office.


I am about to start the billing process. 17 notes!

As the Sacramento Crawl mug works winds down the Hot Tub Hula Girl project does too. They were the first orders on the Wish List and it looks like I need to make some more.


I keep working in groups that get larger as I get smarter. More zombie's.


The specials made it into the oven to set the enamel.


Another set is baked.


Next set of zombies.


Done.


Once I had all of these done it's time for Dan's critique. He said the girl on the left looked mad and the girl on the right looked sad.


I removed the offending paint and started over. This time they passed his inspection.


These have to wait overnight to be baked in the oven or the paint will boil.


Once I have gotten the shipping of the crawl mugs under control we will ship out these Hot Tub Hula Girls.

Cheers, Wendy

I have to say I am so impressed with all of you who jumped in super fast and sent me the payment for your Sacramento Crawl mugs. It's so wonderful to get to the end of such a huge project. I started in January and the last mugs were done two days before the crawl started. I have four couples coming tomorrow and one on Wednesday to pick up there mugs. I'll just have a few to deliver after these days. Rugby Matt let me know when you are back from traveling the world, you mug awaits your return.


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

I'm back to work on the Wish List #6.

Here's the sign for the business of Barbara Lawrence on fb. It will have grout and look like a mosaic when it is finished.


This has been slowly drying over many weeks. I kept it with weights on so that it wouldn't warp.


Now that it is almost dry I carved all the lines again.


I left the crumbs of clay until I finished so I wouldn't repeat myself. I dumped them out and


found even better weights to hold it flat.


My next post will be of Tiki Wahini's Gilligan's Island Bob. She has had me make a Rat Fink Bob in Disneyland and last year a Rasta Bob playing a guitar. I hope this one will be her favorite of all.

Cheers, Wendy

I never realized how large the hut tub hula girl mugs were until I saw one in Dan's hand. Impressive! Not that I should be surprised. All your mugs are huge and amazing!

LoriLovesTiki thank you, I try to make them so they will last.

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

Progress Report Wish List #6

Tiki Wahini ordered a Gilligan's Island mug. The step by steps begin.

I found a couple of reference photos.


In this one I noticed that the back of his cap is turned up. I'm going to use that photo for the cap.


This is the very helpful drawing from Tiki Wahini. Yep that's how she spells it here on Tiki Central.


Clay is too fragile to make the handle dimensions so small so I just did them as small as I could risk. I marked where each one would go.


I cut away the excess clay.


Next I used a whole bunch of different tools to form the shape.


I worked on the handles.


A few days later I was able to pick it up.


I took some pieces of wood and sanded them into different sizes for carving the words.


Started.


Brushed with a wet paintbrush to remove the sharp edges.


Now it will dry some before I try to fine tune the words.


Whew, so far I didn't break off any of the handles. Cheers, Wendy

Wish List #6 update on the Gilligan Island's mug.

Tikiwahini there is so much more to come! You always think up fun designs that challenge me. Thank you.


Now it was time to work on the back of the mug. I first formed the body of the tiny tiki from the TV show.


It's just a matter of adding little bit's of clay here and there until it matches.


Now I started working on the face. On my finger is the forehead and nose.


After that was placed I formed the eyes.


Next palm trees with coconuts.


Final touches.


Now the tiki is put into plastic to firm up before I start the front and the hat.

Good night, Wendy

Wendy, I love the way you have added the tiki to the back - not just carved into the surface of the mug, but a fully carved figure!!

Wish List #6 update.


Tikiwahini if Gilligan gets tipsy this will help him not tip over.

Next steps.

I used the photos of Gilligan to try to match his eyebrows, cheekbones, nose and of course it's still a Tiki Bob smile.


Then the hair came next.


The real challenge came when making arms and hands to grip the boat wheel.


Here's one side and


then the next. they have clay supports so they don't move.


I made the cap starting with a ball of clay.





The back of his cap is folded up, I did that too.


Front of the cap.


Cheers, Wendy

lunavideogames when Tiki Wahini adds this one to her collection maybe we can get a photo of her three mugs together. She has great ideas.

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

Wish List #6 update continues with Gilligan in crisis!


When I'm making the hat it helps to put it into place. It will stick there and not come out so I use plastic wrap.


Days have passed and both the mug and cap are dry enough to place them together.











Close up of the special little tiki.


Close up of the ships wheel.




NOT THE END TO THIS STORY. YOU KNOW GILLIGAN ALWAYS GETS INTO TROUBLE.



I did this. I wasn't thinking and I went to pick it up with my thumb on the ships wheel.


MadDogMike told me years ago about Magic Mend for ceramics. It looks like slip but doesn't have water in the mix. That way as it dries it doesn't shrink.


I put this Humpty Dumpty back together again.


He has dried.


When he fires I'll hope for the best. If these pieces don't hole together I'll do it all over again.


Clay is brittle until fired and I didn't concentrate. Oh well. Cheers, Wendy
