I must concur with MaukaHale - I'm exhausted just looking at these latest photos.

Great stuff!

MaukaHale it could be that I'm the oldest mug maker and retired to do this hobby. Well maybe Munktiki is older. I'm so happy that people like what I do. Thank you.

Piddersthecat since Dan works for tikis that I make for him he is right there when I unload the kiln. If there is nothing in there for him he looks for ideas of what to ask for. I'm excited because I am about to start being paid for the work. I never accept money ahead because too many things can go wrong in ceramics making huge delays.

I would take the misery of heat over the pain of cold any day. We froze in coats on our Canadian trip and Canadians were in shirt sleeves!

bamalamalu thank you too.

I love waking up to comments and you all made me very happy.

This is not on the Wish List. I can't opt out of a MadDogMike swap. I only missed a few in the beginning because I wasn't aware of them.

For this swap I copied the Stephen Crane Match Book. Even the colors. Because there are a million brown mugs I chose to do the green. Isn't the order wrong? I thought it was catch the small one between the legs, eat him and have a full belly. I did the mug to match but it looks wrong to me.



All the steps.




















Now it goes to the drying table. Wendy

MadDogMike that's so nice for you to say but you are the draw to the swap. Your creativity is so over the top that watching is better than TV.

hang10tiki those were Dan's words and I had to slap his hand away from the mug!

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

Back to Glazing the Wish List #7.

This one is a gift from Doug Christensen to Howard Dintz. Howard wore this costume one year, now he has a mug to keep the memory going. Unfortunately I couldn't capture the sweetness in the smile.


I gathered up some of the glaze colors that this one mug would require.


I started with the back by doing Howards work logo. I love these little squeeze bottles.


When I was done with the blue I checked it against the picture. Oh NO! I messed up and filled in lines that should have been white.


I got out a spike and started digging out the blue glaze.


I got it all removed.


Now it was time to use the white glaze.


I even used the squeeze bottle around the letters. This is risky. If I squeezed too much out it would run into the letters.


Now it was time to work on Howards face.








All done and posing.











More fun around the corner, I better get back to work, Wendy

Piddersthecat I tried but I just couldn't make that sweet expression in his smile. He's happy with it. The gifter let him watch the process.

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

Wish List #7 the glazing continues.


The first wish here is for Raymond McCormic. This may be his coffee cup for work. I hope he tells me.
He wanted Tiki Bob to wear a suit and tie.


Whenever I do a Bob the face is the last part to glaze. I do two coats of Duncan Artic White underglaze and Two coats of CC Black on the eyes and mouth.


For the body I also use a non-traveling glaze such as a Duncan CN or a Mayco Stroke and Coat. I ruined a lot of Bob's with runs before I got this right.


Once the face is entirely dry I do 3 or 3 coats of Duncan Clear Brilliance. The other clear glaze that is light bluegreen in the jar doesn't work. It will run the black making Bob look like he is crying. So look for this bright green.


On the back it says Appraiser for the Assessor.



The next wish is for Justin Wogslaw. He is a bartender at the Diller Hotel. This is a gift for his employers. It has a nice sentiment on the bottom which I glazed first.


I always plot out my glaze strategy. For this bowl I did the volcano, outside and


the inside sides.


I left a ring for the next glaze to make sure it sticks.


Thank you Woody Miller for showing me the product PING. It comes in white and black. I now put this glaze that will make the lava on the top of the volcano and ran it over the sides.


Next I did glaze for the red hot lava. I added chuck crystals in red to the glaze to make it thicker.


Now I poured in glaze for the water.


I went all the way around the volcano.


I let it dry for a couple of days.


Next I took extra crystals and rubbed them on the ring of water for extra pizzazz.


The red glaze cracked as it dried. That happens when it is too thick. But since it is in this flat area it should heal itself.


Done and now it goes


outside to dry more so it can be fired.


Have a great weekend. I'm staying indoors and glazing! Wendy

hang10tiki you know how much I love this because I'm a ham. Thank you. I wrote Bullet a note so that he could go look.

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


I am posting tonight rather than tomorrow morning. We have company coming.

In addition to ceramics the Wish List #7 has requests for 3 black velvet paintings like the one I did for the Tiki Oasis 16 art show. I also want to so one for this years art show as well. So I did the first one during this past week. It is for Psycho Tiki D.

I set up all the bright hot lights to shine on the velvet so I can see what I'm doing.


I got out all the colors of paint that I would need. I needed even more than these by the time I finished.


Each day that I painted I set up a plastic lid with all the colors.


I cut out a stencil to make the first lines easier. I used a ruler. This is a mirror image of the set up for last year. I need to change them enough that you can tell its an original painting.


Then I did the outline and then I removed the cardboard.


So these are the tikis.


After that I work on all the flowers. With velvet you paint from the front to the back, just the opposite of an oil painting.


I did a bunch of random flowers.


Then I tie them together with leaves.


When I did the bird I was able to pull a pin through the paint to make the thin line of the beak.


I started to work on the bamboo.


Here's a close up of the plants. Photos of black velvet don't look very good.


At the end of each day my paint looks like this.


Now it's tiki time.


I painted outlines to help myself.


Then I worked on detail.





I took some dark blue paint and added water so that it would be transparent when I used it.


I went around each tiki so that they looked more 3-D.


Dan said you need more bamboo so it was back to work.



These are the best two photos I took. This one with a flash and


this one without.


So much fun to be had and so little time. I try to stick to 8 hours a day but I forgot and did 12. But I'll take some time off tomorrow.

Cheers, Wendy

I've been sitting here staring at your pictures trying to think of something to say...I got nothing except wow...

I really like the colours you used, and the bird of paradise made me smile (the first time I saw that plant was in San Diego on a work trip and I've loved it ever since).

Thanks for sharing don't forget to take extra time off.

Piddersthecat I have thought that about artists in the past. I think wow is a thrill to receive. Thank you.
Good advise too. My left thumb and fingers went dead again last night. It's no fair. I love to do this work.

hang10tiki ah, thank you for being my rock!

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

Wish List #7 the kiln opens on a load.

I have ten Hot Tub Hula Girls in this load along with two mermaids and the swap mug.


Bottom layer.


Top layer.


Top layer.


Bottom layer.


The swap mug is ready to swap and the volcano has already reached it's destination.


HB Tiki's mermaid and Robyne's mermaids along with the Hot Tub Girls all need faces painting on.


lunavideogames do you like either of these glazes for your mermaids? With yellow lettering on the back of your mug the one on the right would tie that in. Let me know.


The whole load.


I need to enamel and then take some black velvet paintings. Cheers, Wendy

The colours all look wonderful. I especially like the blues of the water and the face of the Howard mug!

I hope you're remembering to rest too

hang10tiki I am trying to figure out the glaze for your pink mug. There's nothing like it for sale! But one day the lid will open for you!

Piddersthecat so many glazes to choose from makes me a lucky girl. I don't own any dresses or high heels or all that goes with dress up but I have hundreds of glazes!

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

Wish List #7 progress report. Ceramic glazes are not predictable. I always know that upon close inspection there will be pieces that need touch ups and will go back for a second firing.

Here are a few examples.














Once they were out of the kiln again. I painted all the faces with enamel.














24 hours later I did three batches in the home oven to set the paint. They can now be washed gently with cold water.





These are ready to ship once I contact each person. Dan's job will be to box them. Cheers, Wendy
