Watching you glaze makes me tired. Once again, if you haven't glazed ceramics, you really have no idea just how much work and time Wendy puts into each and every one of her pieces. Wowzers. So. Many. Layers. Oy.

Thanks for all.

Wendy, I'd like to think that Grog is popping in here from time to time.

JenTiki, that bowl looks awesome and happy it found a good home. Might be time to order one of those shelf extensions since that bowl is worth it! :0

Jon, thanks. This one's for you....

TikiAno I'm looking forward to spending less time with topless hula girls and more with the other mug projects. Thank you for noticing how hard these are to glaze.

hang10tiki you too? I want that bread!

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

Wish List #6 Hot Tub Hula Girl mugs continue to be glazed.


I set to work on the next 15 that needed the first layer of skin glaze. I messed up the hair.


So then I had to re-glaze the hair. I do a lot of back and forths.


3 down.


Finally I got the second 15 done.


Now 30 have the first layer of skin glaze.


After they dried overnight I started on the second of three layers that are needed for the skin.


When I had done 15 I yelled yippee half way there.


At the end of a very long day, 13 hours, I had all 30 done with the second layer.


Tomorrow it stars again!!! Wendy

hang10tiki I bet you could do dancing with the stars and survive.

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

I am working non-stop on the Hot Tub Hula Girl mugs but I thought I would take a break and do a Misc. photo catchup day.

Dan and I have been to a few antique stores on days we are driving to run errands.

I saw these mid-century cats and begged for them. Our home is so full of tikis I knew Dan would have to bump something so I could have them.


He did it! So I got my anniversary present 3 months in advance.


Thank you everyone for all the views.


Passing two and a half million is blowing my mind!


We were at home depot and saw one of Tiki Diablo's planters. I think I heard that a new batch will be in this summer. They are really great designs and quality.


At an antique store we found a tiny tiki that matches a larger one we own. I think they were made in the Philippines.


Swizzle Dan relocated your necklace so he could see it better when sitting in his chair.


I've made 4 of the Tyber Tiki Maori lamps and Dan has taken two of them. Actually one that sold was a jar. He paired it up with the lamp shade I decorated with a felt pen.


Tiki Tony sent me this photo of Stephen Hillenburg the inventor of Square Pants Sponge Bob drinking from one of my Ren Clark severed heads.


We do get out and about from time to time. Today is a stay at home and glaze all day long day. Photos tomorrow.

Cheers, Wendy

Those cats are great! I always have to buy every cat mug and my wife Emily takes them all from me. She would love those as well. A very cool anniversary present.

Nice to see a severed head out and about

Hope the army of hula girls in their coconut tanks all make it through their battle with the kiln.

lunavideogames I once made a tiki with a cat sitting on top as a lid. I'd forgotten about that, it was a wish. Your octopus with Tiki Bob mug is the next thing I will glaze. I may start tonight!

hang10tiki made a video of Dan and I. It's so professional. Tiki Hula put it on U-Tube.

https://youtu.be/MAwfpXLiU1E

Thank you so much.

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

Wish List #6 I have finished the glaze portion of the Hot Tub Hula Girls. Hopefully they will not need touch up glazing.

Here are a few of the many photos I took during the past few days. The third layer of skin glaze is started.


Skin done nipples added.


The while underglaze is added to the top of the coconuts. 2 layers.


2 layers of clear are painted on. I dry each layer before doing the next. I carried these mugs so many times!


The 3 variation mugs are glazed.


Here are the last 15 with the 3rd layer of skin glaze.


Now I started doing all the nipples and hair touch ups, right after those steps


I did the white under-glaze twice and then


the clear twice.


With many 12 hour work days I finished the glazing portion of the Hot Tub Hula Girl mugs.


Now they need to dry completely.


Then I will fire them. I'm not sure how many will fit in the kiln at a time so it will take awhile.


When they are out of the kiln I still have to paint on all the faces and then bake them in the home oven.

I will make one more batch of 30 this summer at $100 each plus shipping. After those are done the price will raise. These are as much work as a custom wish.

Cheers, Wendy

So. Many. Layers. So. Much. Glaze.

Wow, congratulations on finishing glazin' all of these. Can't wait to see them all fired. All of the detail (and, of course, time) you put into each and every piece is astounding.

Can you put me on the list for the next batch? I'll want a bit of customization too.

TikiAno it's been a long time since you posted Tiki Ari photos. Don't forget to do that for us.
If only it were just one layer per color life would be so much better. You do know from experience.

JenTiki Thank you.
(Can you put me on the list for the next batch? I'll want a bit of customization too.)
I've started a binder for Wish List #7 so when you have the ideas ready you may send them to me to save.

hang10tiki it's so wonderful that you are able to make a video. It looks very professional.

ebtiki thank you, it's fun to know that even when there are no comments the work of posting is worth it.

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

Wish List #6 update. The Hot Tub Hula Girl mugs are about to get a whole lot hotter. They were dry and ready to fire.

First I looked for shelf supports that were tall enough.


Then I loaded the bottom shelf with the mugs. I stuck my camera underneath the shelf to check to make sure none of the heads were touching the shelf.


Well one of the mugs was taller. Since these are all assembled by me they are all different.


So I got little inch thick bricks to raise the shelf.


I then loaded the second shelf using the inch thick supports and I put down the third shelf.


I checked with a mug and found that I could put in any more mugs. So the total for this load was 16 of the 30.


So now I have a shelf that needs something on it before I fire. I need to see if there are any short wishes.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki that made me shiver!

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

Wish List #6 progress report. I found the perfect piece to go on the top shelf for this firing of the Hot Tub Hula Girls.

Barbara Lawrence ordered a mug, which I'm still going to tweak. She mentioned she was going to do a mosaic sign for her new business. I asked if I could do an experiment in making the sign in one piece. It would in the end look like a mosaic when I added grout.

I didn't have any good clay, it had hardened in the bag. So I cut slabs and sealed them together. That experiment was great because I had a separation between two of the slabs.


You can see it from the front.


So to hide this I used Magic Mend. Thank you MadDogMike for this wonderful product.


I let it dry overnight.


The next day I sanded it and removed the dust (I hope) and then did the first layer of glaze.


Drying between them I did the 2nd and 3rd layers of glaze.


Now I used a stiff brush with water to remove glaze from the top of the letters.


She requested a metallic glaze for the letters and mirror.


Done.


Then I glazed the mermaid all in white.


Then I cleaned off the aqua glaze on the stars and


glazed them in white.


I decided to do the frame in the same metallic glaze to keep it cohesive.


Done.


The next day I did a boarder around the back so that from the side, when hung, there wouldn't be any white showing.


The into the kiln. I didn't have any more short pieces to add.


When this is done I will be using enamel to add detail to the mermaid and the stars.

The load is firing!!! Wendy
