hang10tiki I'm always working. I hope my next project turns out.

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

No step by steps today. Instead we met friends to have a belated birthday party for me!!!

It was so kind to just put one candle on the cupcake.



Afterwards we went tiki hunting. I found a huge candle. The guy has a ring in his nose? He's too big for my cupcake.



I also found a beer glass from Tahiti and a Tahitian (correction, Buzzy said Figi bowl and he and Dr. Tiki Mojo said it's a Kava Kava bowl) wooden carved bowl.



We were very happy.


Cheers, Wendy

While I am working on the Wish List #7 batch of Hot Tub Hula Girls (a very early start on these, months in advance) I will do a bit of catch up.

Dan seems to continue to break things. I remember how excited he was to get these little cups in their original packaging. Well they ended up on the
garage floor broken into many pieces.


I turned them over and found they all were beyond repair. I told Dan he had others that actually matched the photo at the top of the package.


He went on a tiki hunt in our home and was able to fill every spot.


He is happy again.



Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki look what we found next.

In Placerville, CA one of the gold rush towns we went to a thrift store off the beaten track.

Dan went through hundreds of albums and found this gem from the Coco Palms. It's even autographed.









Some days are just so lucky! Wendy

Sorry about Dan's new entry for the Tiki Mug Misfortunes thread.

On the plus side, I've never seen those in the original packaging. So that was neat.

Philot thanks for the link to the broken items thread. I forgot all about it. I have a whole lot of things to repair for friends that will soon show up here. I have to wonder if they are on that thread. I should add them too.

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

Today we went to the home of kingstiedye aka Bullet. He had gifts for us.

Dan and I dated at the Zombie Hut in Sacramento in the 1970's. Bullet scored 2 glasses from a woman who actually worked there.


How wonderful that he would share one with us. He also gave me her hula skirts. Dan and I saw that show and may have seen the skirts in action!


Thank you Bullet you are a super friend. Hugs, Wendy

kingstiedye Dan did get a gift because I'm doing the repairs!!!

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

A while back I did a Tiki Bob who was ill. He just didn't seem ill enough so I went back to work on him.


I added all these yellow dots one by one and then colored the bags under his eyes yellow.


Then assuming he was ill because he ate a huge meal I titled the mug The Night After


Out of the kiln all the new detail shows up.


This time the glaze did just what I wanted it to.


Bed Time, Wendy

The Hot Tub Hula Girls #61 - #90 are finished. I posted more photos of the process on facebook because that is much faster than here. I think there are enough here to give a good idea of the work to make one of these. First they were cast, then assembled, sanded and bisque fired. Then they were washed and the insides were glazed. Then the outside of the coconuts were glazed.

These are the colors of glaze that I use. Some took many jars some less than one.
Here are the rest of the steps in abbreviated fashion.



The skin is glazed with four layers and



each time they are either carried to the kitchen to dry or the backyard.


When all the skin coats were finished I moved them closer to my table.


I then did the flowers in red and yellow.


I let them dry and the next day I


added more glaze in the blue water color around the upper body.


Then back to drying.


Next day it was time to start on the hair. I outlined it first


and then filled it in.


One layer done. Every glaze takes 3 to 4 layers.


Once all the glazing on the hula girls is finished I do 2 layers of white underglaze on the top rim.


When that is dry, again they were carried outside I do 2 layers of clear over the underglaze.


Now they are drying outside until I can begin to load the kiln. I can do 16 at a time.


Here's one layer before and


after firing.


These mugs have never been easy. The glazes that I use are CN's and not completely compatible. So each mug is glazed and fired 2 or 3 times. Here's the kind of touch ups that I have to do. One glaze skip at the water line where it meets the hair.


A sample of the touchups.


These three went into the


kiln with some firing for the first time.
Here the firing is done but


one blond needed even more touch ups and another firing.


All the mugs have been fired at least once and now every load is filled with mugs that were touched up with more glaze.


Now it is time to use enamel paint and to do the faces one by one.


One by one I got them done.


I had one order for a swimsuit top and I got to choose how I painted it.




I did two blonds this time and



one with tattoos on a breast and



on one arm.



It took me three hours to do these tattoos.


Either a toothpick or this metal point is how I paint the faces.


The last of them to be completed.


Now I have to gather all the address and get these boxed (with Dan's help) so we can ship them.





The last time they are together. On no one blond is missing. I wonder where she's gone.



Thank you for the visit, Wendy

Very cool Wendy, keep those Hot Tub Hula Girls comin.

I brought my Hot Tub Hula Girl #15 out to False Idol last night. Needless to say she was the talk of the town! Everyone wanted one and asked me questions about it! I met a lot of new friends just by bringing good ole #15 out for the night.
