hang10tiki don't give me any more ideas. Don't you want to wear one at Oasis? They are free.

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

The saga of the wedding mugs continues.

The glaze will not stop running. So it is time to give up trying to save these mugs.


They are dead to me so I'm turning them into zombie Bobs.


Out of the kiln. I will give these to Nate as a gift.


Now it's time to start over again and to make new Tiki Bob's for the wedding.





























Now they need to dry be bisque fired, glazed and ... oh no... what will happen when I glaze these???


Wish me luck, Wendy

Wendy, my fingers are crossed, hoping for clean and happy Wedding Bobs!

Still laughing over the "Butts" pendants. They turned out great- a bit risque for the Wendy and Dan show? Do we have to change the rating?!?!?

If they're not all accounted for, I think Tiki Ari would love to be photographed with the new racy pendant...

Look forward to seeing you and Dan in a few weeks!!!

To anyone who is willing to wear one of these at Tiki Oasis 16 make a plea and I'll bring it to the event for you. There are only 6 and one head so the first 7 to post will win.

Here's the list of those who are attending Tiki Oasis and have signed up to wear a Tramp Stamp necklace at the event. There reward is to keep it.

The only one left is the head rather than the G rated rear end. All the Tramp Stamps are now spoken for. Thank you all for signing up.


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

I'm kind of tired tonight. Here's why.

When I was dremmeling the Wedding mugs I wore safety glasses. Not good enough. I should have worn safety goggles. I got something stuck in my eye. I've been going to Urgent Care since last week and today they sent me on to the eye doctor. Ever had a Q-tip rubbed on the inner side of your eye lid? I have had that five times. In a couple of days I'll know if it worked.



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

Prior to this we had a couple of fun times. First we went to brunch with Tiki Hula. I had a coupon for a free desert. I passed it to him.



He didn't mess around.


Back home he gave us a present. Woo Hoo!!!


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

Then today we visited Bullet and I took his Wish List #6 Led Zeppelin mug to him.





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

Since my eye has been bad Dan's been taking care of me. He added a row of nails for glaze tests and


when he did the grocery shopping he bought me another winning ticket.


It doubled our money.



Now it's time to put the medicine in my eye and to go to bed. Cheers, Wendy

Sorry to hear about your eye!
I know all too well when it comes to your eyes, go straight to the eye doctor and avoid urgent care.
Sometimes they can do more damage than good.
Take care and get well soon!

hang10tiki kingstiedye bamalamalu Heath thank you all for the well wishes. Just tonight it has started to feel better. If I wake up that way I'll be a happy camper.


Well the wedding mug saga continues...

I can't just make them out of thin air so the work to make the replacements begins. However I don't like to fire up my kiln with empty spaces so I decided to pour some extras. Of course if I had not sold the extras I would be in good shape. Oh well.

Here's what I started a few weeks ago when those noses started to run.

I decided that 20 mugs and two huge bowls would be enough. My Tiki Bob molds leak so to use them I plaster the bottoms with sticky clay.


The leaks are too big to just add a bit of slip and rock the mold so it would go into the cracks and seal it. Once this clay is in place I do that too.


I put a dry paper towel under each mold so that once it is upright the clay won't stick to the table and pull back out. Yes I learned the hard way.


If one side of the mold is higher than the other I just build a dam so I can pour slip up to the top.


Two hours later we poured out the slip and put them upside down.


A day later with the Bobs removed we did it again.


It took five days to cast the 20 Tiki Bob's. Four were failures with the slip too thick that it didn't all pour out. I will make four more lamp/torch Bobs.


We ran out of slip and went to Alpha Fired Arts for more. When we get home I add water and Dan stirs with a baseball bat.


Then he shakes the jugs for me.


Now we filled the mold for a HUGE bowl cast.


3 hours later we poured out the slip.


Then it went upside down.


The next day I removed it from the mold.


I put these cutting boards on it so I could flip it upside down. The bowl will not settle if there is air trapped inside for a couple of days.


I just wrap it with the boards in place and put it on a shelf.


More Tiki Bobs to carve is in my future. The wedding couple already said they needed an additional five so that' great.

Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, EYE hope you're feeling better ASAP! So sorry but, as they say, "Safety is no accident."

I agree with Hang10, I kinda dig the teary eyed Bobs. Hopefully all turned out well with Bobs versions 2.0!

See you sooooooon!
