I know Dan-0 could have made it
I am thinking he was only pretending to be in pain
So you would go home and make him some cookies.

hang10tiki Dan said he resembles those remarks!

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



Remember the wedding mugs? Well if you look closely you can find a few of them in these wedding photos. It's always fun for me to see where the art ends up once it has shipped.













Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Nate Kranda

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki I wish I knew because I would love more photos!

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

Catch up photos.

The best part of facebook is if someone tags your name to a photo you get to see and steal it.


Mahalo Tiki's booth at the Forbidden Island sale. He had my art on his table. It was fun to be there one way while the rest of me was at the Sacramento crawl.


Patrick McNeil has a computer program that takes a photo and makes it into a painting. My Zombie Torch was in this one.


Wolfgang's Grey Haired Hot Tub Hula Girl.


Tony at the Diamond Bar with another one.


If you have photos of my art you want to post here to share please feel free. My thread is for fun and is not taken seriously.

Cheers, Wendy

kingstiedye, what a fun photo for me. Thank you so much.

hang10tiki I love love love these. You do such fun photos of your trips and us! Thank you.

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

Dan and I are still going on day trips hunting for tikis. Herr is our trip to the town of Martinez and Cordilia.


3 years ago we were in Martinez and I wanted this tray but passed when I saw a big scratch. Now that I use them and scratch them myself I asked for a discount. 50% off sealed the deal. I love these trays for work because they stack so well. I have a huge collection of them now.


Going up the stairs revealed a nice selection of tiki ware.


Down found a couple he couldn't resist.


I found 7 Nelson plates in a thrift store in Roseville. Here in Martinez I found the missing 8th plate. What a wonderful "find".


When we checked out we found that the cashier had been a seller at Forbidden Island the day before. Right across from Mahalo Tiki and my art!
She showed us the cat shakers she had bought there that day.


My kind of store!



I think the label should have said bar ware not tiki glasses. Nope we didn't get them. They are at Cordelia Station.



Dan and his sister and I will be heading off on another day trip soon.



We had horrible traffic going there and again on the way home. I tried hard to get up to this trailer for another photos but before I could they took an offramp and disappeared


What a fun day we had. Kathi found some cat bottles that looked midcentury but I forgot to photograph them.

Cheers, Wendy

We had another day trip that I forgot to post. On this trip we went to all the antique stores and thrift stores in Turlock, CA.
We didn't find any tiki keepers but we saw these cool cats. Nope I didn't get them we have no wall space. Many stores had vintage
spaghetti hanging lamps and even on chunk lamp. They were all around $175. We are full up on those too.


If you look close there are tikis on the sign. We didn't stop here. We have dead lawns and nothing to grow.


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

If I am holding your mugs this weekend is a good time to come and pick them up. Just message me here or on facebook. Thank you, Wendy

My husband breaks things and I repair them. I've also done this for other collectors. We will start with Dan's.

First was his bookend that had the bottom broken off.


Just glued it and touched up the paint.


The this wonderful gift from hang10tiki needed some tweaking.











Done.



I have been waiting for Dan to break this bowl. I just knew it would happen.


I was able to glue it in place and wood putty the chip and



then paint it to match.


The funny thing is that now they are displayed together.



Now it was time to work on kingstiedye's aka Bullet's repairs.



I started with the Bumatay by Gecko'z because it only needed a touch up on the paint. I mixed two types to get this unusual color.


All done.


I also worked on a couple for Psycho Tiki D but I haven't been able to mix the right colors for his two. I've tried 10 times but neither has worked out yet. Hang in there Psycho I'm still trying.


I filled the chip and when it dried I sanded and carved in the detail.


Then I painted it to match.


I glued on the arm and held it in place with tape.


After it was done I painted it to match.


Just glued and


glued and


glued.


Tomorrow Bullet aka kingstiedye will visit and pick up his


treasures.


Cheers, Wendy

Awesome
Sorry, I don't notice the Vegas mug had a chip.
I like your eyes better.

Love that Gecko Bumatay mug

Great repairs

hang10tiki I don't know if it had the chip before or after Dan's ownership. It's a wonderful mug and Dan is so happy you gave it to him. Repairs started my entire tiki journey so it's good to not forget how to do them. Once I brought supplies and repaired things at a friends home on the way to Tiki Oasis.

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

I ran out of slip for casting so it was time to go to Alpha Fired Arts in Sacramento on Alburn Blvd.
I go inside to pick out glaze while Dan takes the jugs for filling. We get them filled 1/2 of the way so I can add water and they are easy to mix.

Surprise!!! They had tiki mugs. You may buy an unglazed mug and then rent studio time and their glazes. You do the work and they will fire it for you.


Here's their back storage room and


here's Dan putting lids back on the filled jugs.


Afterwards we went to a few thrift shops and antique stores before returning home. We liked this tiki but it weighed about 1/2 of a pound which to us means mass produced so we left it behind.


Dan was thrilled to find a Hawaii goes percussion album.


At another place we saw this huge painting on tapa cloth. $165. We have no wall space left so


its still there on Marconi at the Discovery shop.


Every day is a fun tiki day. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki he hasn't said if he played it yet but he plays albums and writes reviews of them every day.

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

Back when I was making the Sacramento Crawl mug I also cast a couple of bowls. I wanted to experiment on one with glaze. The other was a back up bowl.

Here are the steps to clean them up.


























ON NO! when a hairline appears during the drying days (I dry them for weeks in and out of plastic to prevent this) there is no getting rid of this crack.



So plan two was to remove the bottom before the cracks reached the sides.





I removed the bottom ring so that it would not look like a bottom.





Then I began to carve designs.


I use a wet brush as "sandpaper".





I used tools to add holes.


Now I can make a hanging lamp or use this as a base for a large tiki lamp.









Then for more weeks I slowly dried these. No cracks came up in either. I sure hope I didn't already show these. I couldn't remember and they weren't labeled as having been shared.

Cheers, Wendy

Thank you all for the views. I keep posting even when there are no comments because I know I have visitors.

Mahalo Tiki aka Mary and Nelson put in a Wish for Wish List #7. Because I understand how long a run of mugs takes I stopped everything to make a sculpture for them so they could make a run of 100 mugs in time for Tiki Oasis 17.

They wanted a Tiki Bob Bomb for the theme of International Espionage.

So I went to work.

First I covered a styrophome ball with clay.


Then I drew Tiki Bob.


I sculpted him and took photos. He just didn't look right when made on a ball. Nelson and Mary agreed and I


cut Tiki Bob off of the bomb.


Back to the drawing board. I sent them a whole bunch of photos of vintage mugs. They found one they liked so I went back to work.


This was what they had in mind. It passed the test so


we met at On the Border and I handed it over.


They will do everything from this point on. I'll have the fun of seeing it at Tiki Oasis. They have a surprise in mind.


They will post the steps as they proceed and I'll grab them and post them here.

kingstiedye thinks this one should be named the Bora Bora Bomb. What do you think?

Cheers, Wendy
