hang10tiki one project at a time, step by step. Each day is fun.

Tiki Ano the lamp clay will be gone in no time.

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

Wish List #7 progress report.

I did this black velvet painting and matching mug for the Tiki Oasis 16 art show. Loki Tiki and his wife took it home.


It was based on these Disneyland tikis.


I have two wishes for similar paintings and mugs. So I started by ironing the black velvet.


Then I cleaned it well with a roller of sticky tape.


I stretched the cloth onto cardboard cut to fit the frames.


I had extra cloth and frames so I did them as well.


During the Wish List I will hop from one project to the next and then back again. I put aside the paintings for now and started on the mugs. I built the tiki on a fogcutter mug.


I make extra mugs as I go because I like to have extras just in case something cracks in the kiln.


I finished the tiki and


then I supercarved the mug.





I did some woodgrain on the tiki and now it will slowly dry for a week.


One down and many more to go. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki my aim is to have you say that about your wishes when they are done. Thank you.

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

Wish List #7 progress report.

I have started cleaning up some of the casts and after a few days I had these done.


I cast and cleaned up some of the Frankoma tikis for bowls on the Wish List.



I cast a few more of the run of 100 of the crawl mug for 2016. This one is for Heath.


I hand build the tops.


It is set aside to slowly dry in and out of a plastic bag. This will be a purple pineapple for his wife.




I cast a couple of HUGE Maori Lamps but I didn't have any wishes for them so I'll experiment with them.


I cleaned it up and


started carving the sides.


I decided to add to the eyes. The shadow makes one look tipped back. It isn't. I will do special glazing and detailing with glaze on the body.


The rest I carved.


I place a hole at the bottom for the chord.





I build a removable lid for the top. This makes adding the lamp parts easy.


Everything I do right now is getting me ahead since I wasn't going to start until the end of December.
It's fun just doing this and that right now.

Thank you for being here, Wendy

Wish List #7 progress report. I have one Zombie Torch on the list. I am making two just in case.

They come out of the mold very rough and in need of help.


I clean them up and upside down.


I have five flames that I hadn't yet used. I selected one and


since each flame is hand made I customize the top of the mug to fit.


I like the detail to really stand out so I re-carve every line around the mug.


There are many.


Close up.


With the flames.


It's fun to be working on the Wish List again. Wendy

hang10tiki it loves you back!

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

Wish List #7 progress report.

I made a super carved Tiki Bob for a wisher and then found out they wanted him to hold a 16 ounce Mai Tai. I don't know how much my Tiki Bob's hold. I'm going to have to pull some out of Dan's collection to see if the short, medium or tall versions do or do not.

This is a medium tall Tiki Bob.

Without and with a flash.


























I have so much fun with Tiki Bob that Dan should worry. Cheers, Wendy

Mo' mai tai, mo' problems.

Mo' Tiki Bobs, mo' bettah.

That lamp is going to be KILLER, and those torch mugs always dazzle.

Love that new carved Tiki Bob, too. I don't think it holds 16 oz, but a "standard" mai tai glass holds anywhere from 9 to 11 oz (methinks), which should work??

hang10tiki wow, I even know what a Mai Tai looks like. I saw a lot of these brown and yellow drinks on our trip and I asked the waitress what they were. Nope Dan didn't know either. Did we have one? No but I did live it up with some diet colas.

TikiAno Thank you

Mo' Tiki Bobs, mo' bettah. GOOD I WAS WORRIED

That lamp is going to be KILLER, and those torch mugs always dazzle. I'LL TRY WITH THE GLAZE

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

Even though I have been posting most days Dan and I were on a wonderful trip to Kauai. Every day was special. We did have a rough trip home. The food delivery truck ran into our plane which grounded it for 8 hours, then the luggage dispenser when we landed kept breaking down for an hour. Also Dan had us go to the airport in Kauai four hours early. So we had a 23 hour day from when we got up until we got to our home. But it was all worth it. Thank you Karen aka Woo Hoo Wahine for all the work you did to make our trip perfect. Photos soon.

uncle trav wow, I guess this is why I am posting here so much. The comments like yours just brighten my days.

hang10tiki it was but we kept smiling because we had places to relax, eat and read. So many people are in a bad way right now that we are grateful all the time that we are having such good lives. However I did end up with a very bad headache.

WooHooWahine thank you so much for making our trip special. You are the best ever travel agent and dear friend.

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


DAY ONE of our trip to Kauai, Hawaii

Dan's first selfie taken on the plane. He'll figure it out.


I remembered the way to the Marriott from when we stayed there 10 years ago. Only it turned out this was the wrong Marriott!


It was a great mistake on my part because they had since built a Duke's on the beach.


It was beautiful inside and since it was 11 am we had lunch followed by


the famous Hula Pie.


We walked the beach and grounds and then headed to


the correct Marriot hotel further up North as I had requested. Karen got us a huge ocean view room for the price of a regular room.


This was the view.


The pool also faced the ocean.


Dan tried the hammock and


couldn't get it to hold still.


After a few choice words he got up and we left to play some more.


I hope you enjoyed our first day in Kauai. There will be 14 more to come. Cheers, Wendy

kingstiedye I wish I'd taken a video. So far I haven't figured out how to post videos on facebook. I did some later in the trip.

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

Day 2 of our trip to Kauai.

We rose with the sun.


We had breakfast at our hotel and then found all these tikis in the lobby. Nope we didn't buy any.


Dan did pose with one of the tikis in front of our hotel.



Woo Hoo gave us a gift certificate and we went shopping. I got shot glasses and Dan got a T-shirt. Thank you Woo Hoo, you made our trip very special.


This place was called a thrift shop but this tiki table was $1400. Nope we didn't get it.


We found a real tiki place.


We had a good lunch. We had food but I thought you would like this photo better.


This is where we sat. Chongolio.com makes mugs for them.


We stopped at a thrift store and I found a Trader Vic's mug for $2! Yep we bought it.


I like being silly.


We never went inside of this restaurant. The owners Auntie died and so they closed.



During our trip the sky threatened to rain but it never did. The drought is in Hawaii too.


We were able to get parking to go to the dry cave.


I love walking clear to the back. It's creepy in there.


That's Dan at the opening waiting for me to come out.


Then it was off to a garden.


This is about a 1.5 hour walk with beautiful plants.


Even a stream which makes a soothing sound.


This church is in more paintings than any other in Hawaii. It is in Hanalei.


On our way back to the hotel we stopped to look at the taro fields.


This ends day two. Cheers, Wendy
