Walked by this slot machine today and instantly thought of your mugs
Went to post this photo and saw the man himself (4 arms and all)

lunavideogames he does have a lot of arms. The better to hold 4 mugs with!!!

little lost tiki I'm so glad you think I did your art well. Thank you and everyone for all the wonderful comments. They keep me going even with this cold.

Tyber Tiki I picked colors for Jen's bowl that were as close to Kinney's painting. They will all look different once they are fired.

You did see another one of the lamps. This time it will be green so I'm excited too.

hang10tiki think of me sounding like Elvis...thank you thank you very much.

There's nothing I like reading better than what's posted about my art. I'm a ham and this is just so much fun. I appreciate you all.

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

I still have the cold but I am better. I hope I'm alright tomorrow because I glazed fro 12 hours today. I can only watch TV for so long before I get bored and I can only read until my eyes go blurry. So I went back to work today.

Since I was considering myself ill I worked on Dan's Wish List #6 projects. He's been taking good care of me so I really owe him some tikis.

I started by glazing the insides of 5 mugs.


Tiki Ano I forgot to answer your question. The Swap mug was glazed with Mayco Safari. It looks great so I used it on this Tiki Bob. This is a reminder photo to always glaze bisque that is moist.


All done.


Next I did a Tiki Bob Dalmatian Dog.


I always do a white underglaze on the Bob faces.


Then a clear Brilliance clear glaze over the underglaze.


This one took most of the time. Doing three layers with so many colors is just endless.














Last step.



It may just be after 8 but I'm so ready to go to sleep now. Good night, Wendy

Aloha Dan and Wendy,

Since you have almost 2.5 million views here do you mind if I shamelessly spam our sizzle reel plug for Building Paradise?

Maybe one of your fans is in the industry and will want to pick us up. It's for the Ohana!

http://www.mediameltproductions.com/BuildingParadise.html

MAhalo!

Bamboo Ben

Wendy, I am always amazed with all the wonderful mugs you make. Truly works of art. Every time I see my Cactus Bob you made for me, it brings a smile to my face. I love viewing your thread.

Beautiful work, as always! I love the all white Bride Bob. <3

I think that surprise green glaze that the clear coat created is amazing. And like I said on FB, Rat Fink is way cool. So many great pieces!

TikiAno, thanks for telling me where that big tiki was though who knows if I'd see him. No plans to go back to Hawaii but my husband has been talking about it so you never know.

hang10tiki but it's so much fun to make tikis. I LOVE this work.

RevBambooBen I LOVE your video and I'm very happy you posted it here. Everyone, watch this video.

If you do another one in the future please post it here.

TikiVato I LOVE this photo and your message.


My cold is now in phase three, I'm not well but all these messages make me feel so much better.

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

Wish List #6 this Tiki Bob based on the pole where the restaurant used to be is for Joshua Bell.























Oh NO another Tiki Bob!
























I'm off to rest now. I need to beat this cold. Cheers, Wendy

This is my nephew doing something special. He wrote, sang and starred in this video. Wendy
Here's what he wrote.

Exactly 30 years ago on Friday, January 28, our nation was shocked by the loss of the Challenger Space Shuttle and its seven person crew. The loss was particularly hard on the thousands of children following the adventures of Christa McAuliffe, our first "Teacher in Space".

Many of those children and others who knew Christa are making sure her memory lives on to this day. As a musician, I decided to join in that effort with a new music video -- my first. One night before the Challenger anniversary, the video has been completed.
You can see it at
www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTQSPBzn7JA

Before you get drawn into the video drama, I suggest just listening to the song at www.spiritualguy.com While you’re there, you can learn the full story of how "For Christa" came into being. Then come back to the video. See Christa’s beautiful spirit take wing again.

And if you feel inspired to, keep it soaring on.

With gratitude,

Jon West

Looking great - thanks! It'll be fun to take a picture of the Bobs together.

I just got over my cold, now my son has it - get well soon!

Joshua Bell so sorry to hear you had and your son has this cold. It's a bummer. I've tried not to slow down. A photo of the mug with the pole would be terrific. I need the poles address. If you have it please share. Thank you.

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

Wish List #6

While doing these project I have confirmed the Duncan Cover Coat Glazes are perfect for detail work such as the rat fink. These have to be covered with Brilliance Clear Coat when the colors are all done.

Now what I need to confirm is how well Duncan Concept under-glazes perform for the same type of art. So I'm doing some experiments before I use them on Wish List Projects. These glazes do a self glossy seal and so there isn't a end step. What I like about them it that they come in a standard 8 ounce jar while cover coats are either 2 ounces or a pint.

So here's the second experiment. The first was the Tiki Bob in Purple with dots. If it turns out it has sold to Doug Christensen for his wife.


I made and fired one of my fogcutter mugs.


I stuck on some post it notes as a guide for keeping the blue painter tape level.


Once it was stuck on I started glazing a base coat of 3 layers.


Next I added other colors.


Then I pulled off the tape while the glaze was still damp. That makes a sharp edge.


Then a did the three base coat layers for the sky.


I finished the sky.


Here's my "I want to watch TV" workspace.


I copied a photo of Diamond Head and printed it in the size I wanted for my mug.


I scratched an outline and began to paint.


I added impressionistic buildings at one end and


then at the other end.


I started some palm trees.


I did the first layer on the palm fronds in black.


All done with many layers of many green colors and even added some clouds.












This experiment will tell me how well these Concept under-glazes stay in place and whether or not they blur. Then I will know how I can use or not use them on projects.

Thank you for the visit, Wendy

Oh Wow, is that Diamond Head mug pretty! I hope the glazes cooperate for you.

That Ganesha-style Kiss mug photo is a hoot.
So many gorgeous projects! I can't wait to see the rest all fired & finished.

>>Bob would look like Alice Cooper with the eyes running black down the face.<<
Now, there's an idea that caught my eye!


Hope you feel back to 100% soon. Thanks again for sharing all the photos.

That Diamond Head mug has me intrigued! I can't wait to see how those under-glazes fire. The palm trees you painted are exquisite! Such gorgeous painting.

bamalamalu I would love to do an Alice Cooper mug someday.
Psycho Tiki D wore that jacket as a surprise and it made the photo possible. Usually he hides his extra arms.
I really hope the Diamond Head mug turns out. I would like to do more mugs in this style with these particular glazes.
My cold is just running it course. I am so lucky that I didn't have to return to work after the 3rd day. That is the very best part of being retired.

JenTiki thank you. I posted that information for the woman on facebook.

LoriLovesTiki thank you. I'm anxious to see if it worked. Otherwise I know it will work with Cover Coat under-glazes.

Danno thank you, I should call it Diamond Head Island.

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

When I make a Wish List I try to think ahead. I use small pieces of clay or I think about how things will fit into the kiln for firing. Here are a couple of extra projects that happened because of the Wish List #6.


I thought one these shapes looked like an egg. That made me think of Easter.


At Easter we make up two baskets for our great niece and nephew.


So I decided to make the kids a necklace each. On the back of one these was a split. I just stitched it up.


Question is which one for the boy and which one for the girl?



My thought process on making this Maori Lamp was that I had to fire the very tall green Tiki Bob and that would require having a shelf moved up high. I wanted then to have at least another tall piece to use up the space in the kiln.


This is the lid that goes on after the guts of the lamp are in place.


This is the forth one from the mold. Three lamps and one jar.


This is going to be the first one done in leaf green.

















I've gotten this many ready to fire plus the volcano bowl.
I will do the broken Gilligan and then run the kiln as soon as they are dry.


I'm so anxious to see how they look fired. Wendy
