TikiAno thank you so much. Treg post a photo here so we can all see your mural.

lunavideogames Treg post your mural. This is the first one with the Moai so Dan is taking it.

hang10tiki here ya go right out of the kiln!

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

Ok first let me say that the sky has glaze skips that will need to be re-glazed and all the grass disappeared so I will re-do that as well.
I am really happy to see how the Cover Coat underglaze of the Moai was not absorbed by the CN glaze that was behind it. The grass was CN on
CN and that was absorbed. A good learning experience.

Most of the light areas are from my flash or the over-head light. The skips are small and right above the hills.

















It will be a long time before I've made enough pieces to load the kiln. But one day this will be finished and shared. I will touch up the Moai also.

Comments are welcome. Wendy

http://www.sacbee.com/food-drink/appetizers/article110944072.html

The above is a link to an article in the Sacramento Bee about the new wonderful tiki bar the Jungle Bird.

I got credit for a mug that I didn't make in this article, Tiki Farm made it. But how fun for me to be mentioned in an article about a terrific new tiki bar in Sacramento, CA. The Jungle Bird is everything you would want a tiki bar to be. I have art displayed in glass cases and on the wall I just didn't do the coconut mug. I did one with their signature tiki and logo but for now it's a 1/1. Please go here you will love it.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki I hope to do many more paintings on mugs and bowls in the future. It's fun to change it up. I have so many ideas my head is bursting!!!

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

Well guess what. I have finished up all the shipping of mugs and now I'm already ahead of schedule. It is time to work on the Sacramento Crawl mug for 2017
and Wish List #7. The fun is about to begin.

So here is how I get started.

During the open period I received many requests to hold a place for a custom project. I wrote them on post-it notes and stuck them in a folder.


Now I have taken each name and put them on a Wish List #7 binder. Many of them are no more than the persons name. Some will drop out some will come up with over the top designs for me to create. If you are just one of my "names" then get to work I need your project idea. At the moment there are 53 in the binder that could be a years worth of work so it's good I'm starting early.



Next Dan and I went to Alpha and filled up all the empty jugs.


I've put Dan back to work.


Some I prepped with water so they are good to go.


This year I have actually started on the crawl mug in the month of October, right after the 2016 crawl ended. There is a story that goes with this years design that I will share.

I'm excited to have these projects to look forward to. I don't go in order. If I feel like doing a Tiki Bob that's what I do, if I feel like doing something really hard then that's what I do. Every day is fun because I never know until I look at the binder what I will choose for that day.

I hope you will all join me as I work through each project. I post because I enjoy your comments even when they are short. Then I know I'm not alone here.

Cheers and here's to the next year, Wendy and Dan

hang10tiki hummmm should I make a Bob Lamb? That could be really cute.

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

Election Day is here. We voted so long ago that this has been a long wait.

Meanwhile as soon as I finished boxing all the Sacramento Crawl mugs I began to cast items for Wish List #7. That way when I start a project I can just pull what I need from what I've already cast. Then whatever is left over becomes extras that I sell or Mahalo Tiki sells. Either way I never waste a thing.

I also consider the time between the crawl and the end of the year my play time. If I get started on a Wish List project then that's even better.

Here's some of what I've done starting 9/24/16


I began by casting bowls. These are used for a whole lot of projects from the Hot Tub Hula Girls to Frankoma small tiki bowls.


I store them upside down so that they don't settle and lose their shape.


This will be a cannibal bowl.


I decided to destroy one of the two Zombie Torch mug molds. These two pieces went into the garbage can.


The piece with the zombie I saved. For a very long time I have wanted to make large necklaces and wall hangings with this guy. I started by building a clay dam to hold in the slip.


I poured it in.


Two hours later I poured out the excess slip.


A few hours later I was able to remove it from the mold.


For 13 days I cast one per day. Here I am using the tool that Tiki Ano gave me to add detail. Thank you Tiki Ano it's works really well.


To this one I carved stones.


To each backside I added a bar so that it can hang on a wall or have a neck chord added.

I varied how I cast them so that they would each be a bit different.


Now they will dry slowly over time. Thank you for the visit, Wendy

hang10tiki I hope to make them special so Bling it will be.

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

More casting for Wish List #7.

I've just been casting some of everything. This head will be altered for a wish or just for fun.


When I cast I keep in mind how much room I will need to spread them out for drying. I judged this to the inch. I have two fans blowing on the pieces.


Some molds must be topped off with slip every 10 to 15 minuets so that the cast is uniformly thick. I decided to see how it would work out if I added a funnel to the top of each mold. I sealed them in place with sticky clay.


I filled up the molds and the funnels. When I returned in 2 hours the funnels were almost empty.


But almost meant I made a mess removing them. Now as I look at the photos I realize all I needed to do was pour some out before I took them off. I had to clean up all these molds.


Dan is still my wonderful helper. We empty the tiny molds together. The big ones he can do alone.


He also does all the clean up except for the molds.


The Hot Tub Hula Girl and the Frankoma tiki are really small.


Even though the girl is small she is a 5 piece mold.


I cast a couple of HUGE bowls in case some of the wishes are for bowls like the one I just did with Moai.


Cheers, Wendy

Hey Wendy, obviously the molds for the hula girl are first generation since that's your sculpt.
What about the Frankoma items? Did Joniece Frank give you the original scultpts, or are these your rendition?

Hi Philot, go to page one of my thread here for the entire story of this little tiki. It is not only first generation it is the story of a tiki that survived the horrific fire and was saved from the rubble. It is original and not of my making. Because of how it was fired it is larger so that when I cast it the cast fires and becomes the correct size. Cheers, Wendy

I've cast everything that I could think of for Wish List #7. If you held a place it's time to send me the project.
For those of you who sent the project information I will contact you as I start your project if necessary.


On this day I decided to cast another Maori lamp. As I started pouring in the slip Dan mentioned that it looked thick. I agreed but since it's such a large cast I didn't think the slip would have trouble poring back out.


2 hours later Dan poured out the slip but didn't use the flashlight to check. The next morning I looked inside and could see all the slip that didn't pour out.


When I opened the mold the cast melted like the wicked witch of the west.


It's not a total waste. I put this mess into plastic and I'll use it as sticky clay when I do custom projects.


At a thrift store we found some more TV trays. I've covered them with casts and


I've filled the garage shelves one


by one.


Then I filled the dining room table, one end


and then the other.


Now I have all the casts ready to grab to do each Wish. I'm looking forward to another run of great ideas. Cheers, Wendy

As Jon would say... "this is going to be good."

Glad you used/ liked that tool, Wendy! (I admit that I haven't used it in quite a bit, but thanks for the reminder!)

Bummer about the Maori lamp, I'm sure it's remains will be used for something great.
