Wow hang10tiki those are wonderful first day photos. I hope you got the view of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel that you want on your mug. This is if you still want the one with it and the tiki whose feet you showed off.

I took the same photo of the War God painting at The Tikis.

Did you stay at the Outrigger? We had a view of the Royal Hawaiian that looked like one of your photos when we stayed there.

They saved the huge Banyon Tree when doing the new buildings? That would be one good thing. I will always miss the Marketplace.

I'm ready for day number two!!!

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

More glazing steps on Owen Wright's HUGE Tiki Bob Hula Girl bowl.

Owen has a fondness for the color of a green coconut. I couldn't find a glaze in the color he sent to me. But I had two glazes that maybe combined would work.


I would do a layer of one


and then a layer of the other. Back and forth. I just hope they don't have a chemical reaction and turn purple.


He requested that the bowl be Blue Caprice but that it not go up the girl like in my Hot Tub Hula Girl coconut mugs.


After I poured some in I then brushed it up the sides of the bowl with a wide brush. I did this 3 times.


All done except that


I used a stiff brush to wipe off the glaze that crept up the girls grass skirt.


One of the four tikis had a chin tattoo. I used a pin to place the glaze a dot at a time.


It didn't all go into the carvings but


after it dried I just wiped off the excess. This is black underglaze. I will use a white underglaze to cover the left behind grey color.


His next request was that I do a sand color rim around the bowl. This bowl will have four differently colored Tiki Bob's. To blend them together I did a ring of carving around the bowl that also was on the sides of the tikis. In this photo I'm carrying the sand glaze onto each mug. I tried different things with this bowl that over time I changed. I will show that later.


I always let the glazes dry before starting the next part. That prevents me from messing them up or transferring color where it doesn't belong.


I've only just begun with this bowl. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki what a wonderful trip and this is only day 2? You were sure a cute kid and it didn't change, well maybe the hairdo! I'm so happy that Janelle wanted to renew and continue on with one of our favorite tiki friends. I think you could make your own sign so you were wise to pass on it. Keep the photos coming. Thank you.

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

Working on the HUGE bowl for Owen Wright never ends. I have to be so careful. It's really hard to glaze anything because there are so many Tiki Bobs in the way.















































I think it's easy to see that I had to do three layers of glaze for every color. Each layer had to dry completely. I made many trips to put it outside in the heat. At least the hula girl is done. Next up four Bobs and a monkey!!!

Cheers, Wendy

Great pics Wendy, great pics, Jon, and what a great big bowl!

Wendy, waiting for the runny nose Bob update. Treg, soon (hopefully not too soon) you'll get introduced to a similar runny nose with the little Beachbum. It's no fun, but maybe I'll try a Dremel next time- might help better with Tiki Ari???

Jon have a great trip, look forward to seeing more pics. I'll ask my wife the name of this killer Japanese breakfast place in town (if you're still there) and will text to you! So good.

hang10tiki keep the fun flowing our way. I'm really missing Hawaii. You we'll see at Tiki Oasis!!!

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

This bowl is very complicated to glaze. I wanted very much to tie it all together so that it didn't look like a circus. First I carried the carving from the bowl onto each tiki. Now I planned to carry the glaze from each tiki onto the bowl. I made some changes along the way.


I started with the blue tiki which ties into all the dark blue specks in the blue of the bowl.


I continued the blue around the entire bowl. I decided that I wouldn't carry it on to the other tikis which at one point I had planned. Just too busy.


The next tiki is a rust color and


I carried this color around the bowl.


It may look as if each of these bands are done but doing this requires repainting each line three times and then doing it upside down to perfect.


The bowl is so HUGE that I couldn't set a jar of glaze on my table. Because I rotate the bowl a lot while painting. I forgot once. Of course I knocked it off and it was open and black.


I had it down my pant leg too. I tried to wipe it up. This is why I have this extra carpet where I glaze. This is the worst accident I've had there.


Well I really still don't believe it but Dan was able to use Resolve carpet cleaner and to get it all out! Good product.


The next Tiki Bob is carved in a tapa pattern.


The color I chose to do around the bowl is orange and an over lay of cream with speckles.


The last color is Espresso and I started with the bowl and


then glazed the tiki.


At his point I have carried a line of sand glaze onto each tiki. This is about to change.


All of this glazing took a few days to accomplish. Now it sits and rests before I start on the monkey and some changes.


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

I made my 3,000,000 views this morning. I was hoping for some congratulations. Oh well, now I'll work hard for the next million.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki thank you so much for all these fun photos. I love the paint on the Beetle. The Gecko'z mugs and Beachbumz shots are fabulous. I like the selfie of you and Janelle together, that was so sweet. 15,000 Aloha shirts, did you get one there? Thank you for the photo of my 3 million views!!!

Danno, I've been working on your Diamond Head Island with Hilton Hawaiian village on it. It needs to fire one more time. Photos will eventually show up here.
I hope I can make your wish come true. I did it now instead of at the end of December because I'm perfecting this technique so I can offer it for others during the next Wish List. I am even doing a HUGE bowl in this manner. Thank you for the congratulations.

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

The HUGE Tiki Bob Hula Girl Monkey bowl is done being glazed. Here are the final steps.


Dan and I looked the bowl over and together decided that it would look better if those sand colored lines were not on the Tiki Bob's. Tying in still needs to look good.


So first I used a carving tool to scrap off all the glaze possible.


I got most of it off. I did this on all four tikis.


Then I used water and a brush to take off the rest.


I re-glazed all the areas I'd just cleaned off and then I once again fine tuned the glazing on the lines.



Glazing the tapa Tiki Bob was really hard.


I needed to be a contortionist to get to all the places because


other Bobs were in the way.


Upside down shows all the places that were missed with the bowl was upright.


I saved the little monkey for last. I tied him into the bowl and hula skirt by making the coconut the same green. Owen requested that the fez be blue so that worked well too.



Again the bowl needed to dry overnight.


I did many layers of white underglaze until all the grey on the bisque went away.


I did this on all four Tiki Bobs.



I didn't think this day would arrive. I finally have all the colors on this HUGE bowl.























The only thing left was to put on the layers of clear.


The last time out to dry.


By far this was the most labor intensive glazing job I have ever done. So many different colors.

Next it will need to fire. Oh I so hope the glazes do not run on the faces of these Tiki Bobs. Cheers, Wendy
