MaukaHale and hang10tiki he is large but shorter than the pineapple.

hang10tiki this is our favorite so far. Thank you for making me look so young.

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

More steps on the Sacramento Crawl mug for 2017.

Now it was time to put the name of the restaurant on the back of the mug.


I made each letter to match the ad in the phone book.


Next I lined them up on the back of the mug.


I used this tool to attach them.


Then I compared what I had done with the phone book ad again.


Then I tweaked those that looked too small by adding clay and smoothing it into place.


OK now I'm happy.


I took a look at him and then turned him over to


add Sacramento CA to the bottom.


Now I added to clay that makes the opening in the mold where the slip is poured into the cavity.


It's far from done but getting to this point is always a relaxing moment.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki that's neat but Hawaii is so much better.

hang10tiki I think Dan needs to suntan his neck and to do a jig!

little lost tiki ah thank you. On your thread I asked if you had prints of one of your paintings with my favorite bird. I love your birds.

hang10tiki Oh, thank you so much for these. I am looking forward to putting them on fb all at once. I put up the ones you did last year already.

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

Tiki Tuesday at the Jungle Bird.


We rarely go out after dark so this was a treat to meet up with so many friends.







We came an hour early to have dinner with Bullet and Sandy and


Rachel and Gregory. Guess what children can be in the bar until 10 PM so come on down it's a wonderful place.



Gregory got his 2016 crawl mug.



Everything we ordered was delicious. The Bao was the best we have ever had. We used to drive to San Francisco for Dim Sum but these are the very best. The salads were beautiful as well as excellent.









































It took a long time to deliver Keith's Molikai Mule which was his wish from the 2016 list. But it was so fun to see him show it off.


Polynesian Paddy and Moai Mike I kept looking for you!

Cheers, Wendy

Progress Report on lunavideogames wish which also became the Sacramento Crawl mug.

It was now time do do some design carvings. The entire time I am thinking of where the mold seams will be located. This will be a 5 piece mold. I used a wooden tool so that it would cut too deeply.


There are a lot of areas to work on so I just started and kept on going.


The seams will run down the corners. One side started in this photo.


The front is done. I took this photo to eliminate the top which is only to make an opening.


The next step is to make it look like stone. I took huge grained sandpaper and pressed it all over the tiki.








The design at the very top above the work Tahiti will be changed before I mold the mug. It didn't fit. I forgot to take a photo.





Now I have three things to mold. I wondered if I could do it all in one day. In the background of this photo you can see what Dan is making for breakfast.


Here it is all done. Brown rice, salsa and egg whites. Yum.


I hope lunavideogames wish is coming true and that everyone will like this as the 2017 Crawl mug. It all came together. Psycho Tiki D suggesting the Tahiti and lunavideogames wanting a Tahitian tiki mug for his bar. Having been to Tahiti this year was also a good reason for me to make this mug.

Like it?????????? Wendy

Wendy, wow! Love the Tahiti mug- look forward to seeing Treg's Wish when it comes to San Diego- and look forward to seeing how the Crawl mug turns out.

Very neat way of arranging the letters (and pressing them into place)- great idea!! (And noted!)

Looks like a great visit to the Jungle Bird- it's definitely on my list whenever I make it up there.

TikiAno thank you. His wish has a whole second part that is much harder to pull off. The scraper is on the way.

hang10tiki should I put you on the list?

hang10tiki you sure made Santa's lips look kissable.

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

Now it is time to make the mold for the Sacramento Crawl mug.

First we set up all the things we would need for the day.


I had changed the design at the top so now the sculpture is done and ready.


I lined the bottom of the box with my blocks from Toys R Us. and put the tiki in place. I put blocks under the head until the tiki was level.


Then I surrounded the tiki with another layer of blocks. These blocks are easy to cut with a serrated knife.


I made a big piece of clay and put it at the top. This will make a huge opening for pouring out the slip when I cast the mugs.


Now I put a layer of clay over all of the blocks and ran a wet paper towel around the edged and up against the tiki to make a good seal.


I pressed into the clay to make the locks.


I added snakes to all the seams of the box and made the seal better with a wet paper towel run along where the clay attached to the box.


For the rest of the day we will wear face masks. I don't want any plaster hardening in our lungs. It floats in the air a long time.


Once the mix is like buttermilk in consistency we pour it into the box.


About 45 minutes later it is hard enough I can carve into the plaster to label the mold. CM for Crawl Mug and the year.


More steps tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki PM sent back! This Santa is one I love.

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

The next steps on making the mold for the Sacramento Crawl mug 2017. Also lunavidogames wish.


Once the plaster is hard I remove the box. I then scrape the edge so that it is rounded and not sharp.


We put on straps so that it can be turned over without falling apart.


This is where Dan comes in very handy. I make big thick molds that really test his muscles.


Once it is over I removed the straps, the blocks and the layer of clay. I am very careful to not move the sculpt. I need it to stay in place in the mold slab.


Now it is ready for some fine tuning.


I use this tool and I scrape the plaster so that it is very flat and up tight to the sculpt.


I do it all the way around the sculpt.


More steps soon. Wendy

hang10tiki and I love it when you post photos. This one makes me feel so special!

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

More steps in making the mold for the Sacramento Crawl mug which is also lunavideogames wish (maybe).

I've made one slab that was the front of the mug. Now I am going to make the two side pieces at the same time. Since I want to pour in the liquid plaster I don't want it to come up past the sides. To make that work I put the tiki on the slab at an angle.


I added clay to build up the opening at the top where I will eventually use this to pour in the slip. Then I did 4 layers of mold soap so that the new pieces will not stick to the first slab.


Now using blocks and clay I built a bottom. This will be removed when I pour the last piece of the five piece mold.


I made the box around the tiki, then I had to adjust the clay so that it reached the box. The angle effected everything.


Next I added the snakes at each box seam and then I covered the tiki with a wet paper towel so if the plaster splashed it wouldn't mess up the sculpt.


Now we mixed the plaster and poured it in until it was up to the place on the sides that I wanted it. The wet plaster also covered the clay at the top.


No problem at all. I just scrapped it off as it began to set.


After the plaster set I again fine tuned the edges that are up close to the tiki. Then 4 layers of mold soap.


Now we poured slab number four. We pour slowly so that all the detail is filled in.



4 out of 5 pieces are now done. One left to go and that is the bottom.


It is really easy to work all day every day making tikis. The reason is that there is just so much fun in doing that. Cheers, Wendy
