SHOCK!!! Fox40 news just showed up to video our home. We let them in and gave them the tour. They hope to have it on the 10 PM news tonight and then on their web site after that. I will post the link as soon as it happens. We had fun with Sara Zendehnam and her cameraman Darren.

Fox40.com

So much going on around here it's never dull!

Wish List #7 continues with a Wish from Theo Stool.

Here is his idea as he drew it for me. I called it the dead diver. He changed that to Diver Down.


I thought about what molds I had and decided to use the cannibal bowl mold.


I started by adding a lot of sticky clay.


I save bottle caps to use as guides. I used this one to mark the clay where the opening into the helmet would be and then I cleaned up the clay around it.


Next I started making pieces of clay for the other openings in the helmet.


I glued them in place with sticky clay. Then I put the helmet into a plastic bag for the night.


The next day I was able to trim the clay.


I used my label scraper to tidy up the sides.


Now it went back into the plastic bag for another night.


I am following his drawing as closely as I can. Wendy

When I have the link to the Fox40.com video I'll post it.

Here are the photos that I managed to take during the tour.

When I said Yes they went back to their van for the equipment.


Sara Zendehnam is the reporter and Darren is her camera man. Dan is my man!


I told her about the Jungle Bird and La Mariana.



Oh, Dan didn't want to be interviewed but it was time for him to do it. He built the jungle room and the collection is his.


I told her about Tiki Oasis and the Sacramento Crawl.


It's always fun to see how they edit the video. They were here for a couple of hours but the video will most likely be 4 minutes long.


I think I will go to bed now and watch it when we get up in the morning. I love to read in bed at night.

Cheers, Wendy

Here's the link. I watched it before I went to bed tonight. You two should see if there is a world record for most tikis!

MaukaHale thank you for sharing the link. We went to sleep before it came on and just watched it this morning. They did a great job.

Only two things that could have been better. One when they mention the Wish List they are showing a mug by the Witch Doctor and the other is
that although I told them of the Jungle Bird on 21st and J street downtown it didn't get mentioned in the show. She did say they planned to
visit it soon and that they know it is popular.

Overall we are really happy that they came and we all had fun running around.

Treg (aka lunavideogames) did you see I set up your mug to be in the show?

If you noticed I have done some glaze tests on the Sacramento Crawl mug. I haven't found the perfect glaze yet so I'm going to have to do some more.
Photos in the future.

Thank you everyone for making all of this possible. Wendy

TikiHula so many all at once. I wish it were spread out over many years. It is a lot of fun. I was tired and didn't do well but that's OK.

hang10tiki Dan would say it is tiki craziness.

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

I took the day off and we went to an antique show in Dixon, CA.

We ran into our dear friends Amy and


Psycho Tiki D. That was the highlight of the day.


No tikis but Dan scored 18 albums and 8 CD's at thrift stores.


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

Wish List #8 photos of the steps for the Theo Stool Diver Down mug.

I began carving the windows. I went only as far as was safe because I


didn't want to break through into the mug.


I go the top depth done but this shows that the side is in progress.


I started to make the skull to match the drawing. I used clay on a balloon. It didn't work.


Then I remembered what GROG said about making a solid sculpt and digging out the excess clay at the end.


GROG solved one problem but now I think this looks like a baboon!


More soon. Time to go to work. Cheers, Wendy

Wish List #7 continues with Theo Stools Diver Down mug.

GROG really helped me with a new technique of making something with a solid piece of clay. Then when


I finish the piece digging out the backside. It worked. Thank you GROG for sharing Babalu's technique.


To stretch the clay backwards into the helmet I kept adding layers of sticky clay then pressing it backwards. This kept the clay thick enough that I didn't push through.


Now it was time to put the skull into the helmet to see if it would fit.


Relief! Behind the jaw it is open so that I am not trapping air that would explode the mug in the kiln.
I added broken supports for the glass face that is now gone. That is why he didn't survive his dive.


Now it was time to seal the bottom of the mug. I cut a slab off a huge brick of clay. Then using a rubber mallet I


pounded it to the right size and thickness.


I use sticky clay as glue. I make this from the excess clay I cut off cast projects. I put it in a plastic container and then I pour slip on top of it.


I spread it around on the clay slab and


I then use water on my fingers to smooth it. This prevents air bubbles.


I pressed the helmet into the sticky clay firmly.


Then just like grouting tile I wipe the excess away.


Then I use a roll of soft clay to seal it all together.


The last step was to cut away the excess slab.


This mug is not done yet. More steps will soon follow. A hard but fun project. Wendy

MaukaHale, hang10tiki thank you. I sure do love comments.

lunavideogames on another video I had Bullets cat out, the next video the crawl mug and then the last video your mug. It happens when the timing is just right.

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

Wish List #7 finishing off Diver Down for Theo Stool

Theo supplied the sign to add on the back of the mug. I wet it so it would stick.


I traced all the letters and


then carved them to match.


Starting with the top it is now done. He asked me to age it with sea shells and I also added some coral.














Here's look'n at you kid.


I have some easier projects coming up for the Wish List and then some of the hardest. The fun challenges never end, Wendy

bamalamalu thank you twice. It's been a really fun year so far.

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

The Sacramento Crawl mug and the Wish List #7 require a lot of supplies so it was back to Alpha Fired Arts, my favorite place to shop.


While I pick out glaze Dan gets all the slip jugs filled up.


From their huge jugs to our small jugs.


Then it's back to work. Wendy
