Love your amazing work!

I'm guessing $85, but if I win I want to gift it to another participant; I have a special one already!

At the risk of sounding like a big idiot and because you have a BIG heart, and you are learning a lot on this one . . . I will take a crazy guess at "FREE" (or $1)!! Don't get me wrong, none of your art should go for less than $100, so I hope I'm not digging the hole I am currently standing in deeper than it already is by my guess . . .

Well, Danno beat me to it but I would have guessed $0 since it was an experiment that you are apparently not happy with. I enjoy watching your thread and all of your process pics. May have to order something one of these days.

It's really nice to have these entries to view. Danno you are the winner. You are right I will let her have it free of charge. seagoat you were right too, I'm not happy to have used so many techniques to pull it off. She has all the supplies to make this sign as a real mosaic. If she does it I hope she'll share photos. I do know how to make one now and to be able to do it right if there is a next time.

Danno congratulations you get a little seahorse necklace, I was wrong it can also be upright.

Send me your address.

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

Wish List #6 update on the Hot Tub Hula Girls. Horrors just like last time the skin tone glaze hates the black glaze causing skips and lots more work for Dan and I. Here's what this week has been like from start to finish.


The first batch has fired and I unloaded the kiln and


started re-loading with the last batch.


I don't like unglazed bottoms so when they come out of the kiln there are sharp spikes where they were supported. Dan sands these bottom for me.


When they come into the house I wash them off and do an inspection looking for flaws.


These all passed the inspection these others


did not. There were some areas that need a lot of fixing.


This one and


this one were two of the worst.


Others just needed a tweaking.


I use post it notes so that Dan knows what I need him to do to each mug.


He set up the dremmel and went to work grinding off the black glaze that moved to the center of the necks.


Here's the post dremmel work. I also need to fix the hair along the cheek.


Here's what one looked like after his work and my re-glazing. With a flash and


a photo without a flash.


The second load had fired and it now goes through all of the above steps. Out of the 30 mugs I needed to repair or tweak the glaze on 14. At least I can finish the glazing in one more load.


Now I have an empty kiln and I've done the re-glazing. I'm again loading the kiln. My electric bill is through the roof.


Back to sanding.


Back to re-glazing and


out in the sun to dry before firing again.


I still have some room in the kiln so I'll do a few more things and then hopefully fire one last time for the HTHG's.

Cheers, Wendy

Holy moly, I completely missed another Wendy contest! I have to say, I think the Retro Siren piece looks absolutely beautiful (and did before the additional work), but we know that Wendy, as an artist, has her vision and all must fit her vision. Wendy, in the possible world that you make me a sign you don't have to work so hard to make it so beautiful, since it will most definitely be perfect to begin with. Your detail work is so amazing, wow.

I'm blushing from all of the nipples in your last post, I guess I'll have to stop Tiki Ari from scrolling through your thread- he's a little too young for such an adult themed post. (Just kidding, I actually just taught him, unrelated, to say "beer," but unfortunately he didn't understand the first part of the sentence ("Bring me a..."). Oh well.

Danno that was sweet!

hang10tiki I'll be posting his payment soon. I like that photo, Dan looks like that a lot.

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

Wish List #6 update. I really don't get every wish just right. I do try.

I finished off the wall plaque with some gloss varnish. I hope it will all hold together. Or she can soak it all off and paint it herself. She is an artist.


For the same lady Barb Lawrence I made a mug that also bombed. She wanted glitter but the color was too green. She wanted brown and red hair but it came out mostly brown and spread the strands too wide.


She wanted waves but these were too thick as well as the wrong colors.


I thought about the type of glaze I had used. It was static. So maybe I could layer another static CN under-glaze over it without it all running to the bottom of the mug. Worth a try. So I painted on 3 layers. Now the mug has six layers of glaze.

First layer on the front.


Third layer all over.


I used another CN glaze to cover the mermaid.


I covered the hair and I'll use enamel after this fires so that it will match the plaque. I wiped the glaze off of the silver glittery stars.


For the thin waves on the back I just scratched them into the glaze.


So the question here is will these close up or stay as I have made them.


Experimenting will pay off or it will also mess up her second wish. I Wish It Will Work.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki I've been watching you on the collecting tiki thread. You are one heck of a tiki hunter.

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

Wish List #6 I'm trying to fill the kiln so I can have all the Hot Tub Hula Girls ready to paint with enamel.

I started by doing the fix up glazing on Howard's mug.


Just one more coat of glaze. Many jars say 3 layers but really look best with 4. So I just write that on the jar and test strip.


Dan said he has been working hard enough to deserve his mug to be glazed. This mug style started with RVictor's take on Sven's Tiki Modern book cover.





Looking at this photo I saw where the brown glaze had moved into the black glaze. Photos really help.


So I got out a brush and glaze and


now it will look much better.


Last side.


When this mug is fired and the colors can be seen well I'll check to see if those on order will be glazed in the same colors or if the persons who ordered want to pick something different.

Weekend. More good days to work. Wendy

hang10tiki thank you for your support. I appreciate you so much.

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

Wish List #6 progress report.

I loaded the kiln with Hot Tub Hula Girls that needed touch ups. Then in the leftover space I was able to add a few mugs.


Two days later I opened the kiln.


The three mugs came out just fine and so did


the octopus mug for lunavideogames aka Treg.


I was especially pleased that the experiment with layering a CN glaze over glitter glazes came out perfectly. You can also feel the indentations where the glitter glaze lies.


Now it was time to do black velvet photos in the MadDogMike studio.

First up Dan's Will Work For Tikis Tiki Modern mug. Slowhandtikiman do you like these colors?











Then for Howard in Maui the Lanai San Mateo mug.









Next the wall plaque and mug for Barb.





Last but not least the Octopus who captured Tiki Bob mug for lunavideogames.


















I hope I filled some wishes with these. Cheers, Wendy
