I love how the Wish list mugs are turning out. You put so much LOVE and commitment into every piece you produce.
I am really delighted by the look of Dan's Tiki Modern mug so far. The colors are just ideal. I would like mine done in the same pattern as the original. If artistic license must be exercised for differentiating each edition, can you detail the tapa texture grooves in the light tan left side, with the medium brown glaze, instead of the original white? Will that be enough of a difference from the first version?
Would you look at the HTHG order list and see if my name got added to it? I do not remember getting an answer to weather there were any still available when I inquired back when you announced your were starting the batch? Yes I would love one if there are any unclaimed or uncommitted.

I also think the waves with the glitter and the underglaze grooves on the Retro Siren mug came out beautiful! Awesome discovery! Plus, the "Octo Grope" BOB mug is truly EXTRAORDINARY! Definitely one of your MOST intricate and challenging SUCCESSES!
These Wish List projects are real Treasures!

Whee, glad they all came out so nicely. The octopus is spectacular! All that glazing really paid off - all the tiny color variations really make it look lifelike. Beautiful.

Mug looks great Wendy! All the hard work you put into it really paid off. Thanks for bringing my idea into the world of tiki mugs. Who knows, maybe in 100 years it will be the most sought after mug in history!

slowhandtikiman thank you very much. You are on the list for one of the latest batch of Hot Tub Hula Girls. Do you want to come to our home to pick it up this weekend or do you want to wait until the Tiki Modern mug is also done and ready to pick up?

You have seen your mug when I sculpted it. I will match it to the book as close as possible but the sculpture is not exactly the same. I can do the white in the tapa if that is what you prefer.

Thank you for all the comments that have made my day!

bamalamalu thank you. That is one of my favorite glazes and I thought it would look perfect on the octopus. I'm glad to hear a confirmation.

hang10tiki Dan loves it when you do this to him. You sure are creative. He wanted me to print them all to hang on the wall. I told him the coconut Dan would be enough to hang for now. Thank you so much for all the effort. They were all really great.

lunavideogames Dan says thank you.

lunavideogames I am so happy that you like the glaze and how he looks. I am looking forward to you using it at the Bali Hai.

hang10tiki (:

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

Wish List #6 continues on with the work on the Hot Tub Hula Girls nearing the end.


I removed the last of the touch up mugs from the kiln.


Dan sanded all the bottoms for me and brought them into the house.


I washed off the dust.


Now all 30 mugs are waiting to have the faces painted on.


60 eyebrows, 60 eyes and 30 mouths. I also touched up the hair and flowers where ever I could improve them.


I glazed the yellow with pink polka dot swimsuit top twice. I decided to paint it with enamel.


The yellow is done and


once it dried I did the pink polka dots.


All done and drying overnight. The enamel will boil in the oven if it doesn't dry for at least 12 hours.


Mahalo Tiki wanted two mugs to sell at his booth at Tiki Oasis 16.


He only had one on order and this is it. I may get his second one done in time for the event. I'll try.


One of my fb friends ordered this one. She wanted the girl totally tattooed. It will ship to Sweden when it is finished baking.















It took a few days but now they are ready to bake after they dry. Just to say it one more time. The next batch of 30 will sell for $100 each plus shipping. That will make a total of 90. The next ones if I make more will cost more. These wear me out.

Cheers, it's time to play with Dan. Wendy

After seeing this magnificent batch of HTHG mugs on the counter, especially the groups with the faces done, I think this lot is much nicer than the first production run of this casting, Wendy. Really beautiful work!
I would be satisfied to wait to get my Hula Hottie, and pick her up with my TM mug when it's ready as well. If she is not dedicated yet... the taller one that didn't fit uniformly in the kiln, would be my choice, otherwise her topheavy sister, B-)
How would the TM tapa look with medium brown wash-off detail over the tan, instead of using white? Or do you need to do the whole groove detail with a fine brush by hand? I think there will be a more distinct difference between the #1 and my #2 casting by using a darker glaze in the tapa details. Since the patterns on both are so different, I will let you be the judge of the groove color, based on which color requires less effort, Either way I'm happy!
Honestly I am so thrilled that I get one that I have little concern over it's being a duplicate of the #1, and I think it's being "the same only different" is actually even more FUN!

slowhandtikiman the hula girl that was too tall for the top shelf is the same height as all the rest. I just used her as an example to show that I couldn't do a third shelf of the mugs when firing in the kiln.

I think a darker caramel in the groves of the tapa will make a nice difference. So I'll do that for you.

I think everything gets better with practice but I think all of the Hot Tub Hula Girl mugs have been done the same way.

hang10tiki I am so appreciative of your kind words.

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

Wish List #6 the Hot Tub Hula Girls are ready to ship. I will contact each person on the list to verify that they still want one. If anyone cancels then those on the Wish List #7 for the next batch will move up.

It took 6 batches of 5 in the home oven for 45 minutes each time.


They were all finally done.


We ordered boxes so


I put Dan to work taping them together. He really is my right hand man!


All done and hanging together until this weekend.


Even though they are done we are taking a break.



It's such a bummer to have bad people do bad things. We were lucky we didn't lose any mail. Our neighbors were not so lucky.






It will be so much fun to get back to the one of a kind mugs. They take more thought and that's a good thing. Cheers, Wendy

Such a bummer about the mailbox. There are a lot of idiots out there in the world, but also great people like you and Dan-O! (Happy belated b-day!).

Received my seahorse pendant in the mail, and a few days later my Zombie Torch Mug!! It was like Christmas for me! So, thank you once again!

Danno I love the photo thank you so much for posting.

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

Wish List #6 I spent the entire day writing to each person on the Hot Tub Hula Girl List. Some I can't find here or on facebook. Anyone had contact with Lukapalooza?

I also need to contact Jonny Velour. I know him well in person but I don't have any contact information. He has a custom HTHG mug ready.

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

Meanwhile I always save up photos for the days that I'm not making something or glazing. Here comes some catch up photos.

We started Dan's birthday month off with a trip to the Mickey Grove Zoo and Japanese Gardens in Lodi, CA.





His sister Kathi joined us.








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

On one of his birthday outings we found some grass.

This has never looked thick enough.


So Dan got out the ladder and tacked it up.


Much better.


Here's the other side. Before and


After.


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

Thank you for the visit. MadDogMike and hang10tiki thank you for the birthday cards for Dan.

His Birthday fun continues and I'll be sharing more as he celebrates. Cheers, Wendy

My swap art has arrived and we had the perfect place to display it.


This tiki never had any adornment. Thank you so much AlohaStation. All the work is very much appreciated.


==================
Wish List #6 is all about shipping right now.

Danno requested an arm band tattoo.


I moved the boxes into the family room for paring up with the art.


The bottoms of the mug had an unglazed area left for the numbering. After I do the number in black I cover the white with a brown felt pen color. Both are permanent.


I label each box with a post it note. So if I have any cancels during this time I can swap it out with a name from the waiting list.


Sacramento buyers on the left and shipping to the right.

I'm looking forward to getting back to glazing the rest of the 1/1 mugs and bowls soon.

Cheers, Wendy
