Wendy, the lime wheel you glazed looks amazing! Keep up the great work!


Hang10, what did you think of Tiki Ti? You didn't tell me you were going or I would have told you to get an Ooga Booga

The texture and glaze on the Disney mug looks FANTASTIC!

Thanks for sharing all your hard work, and don't forget to rest your wrist sometimes too

HopeChest, Piddersthecat thank you. I was super happy that it came out like I'd hoped. Some mugs just work out and some take a year of tweaking. HopeChest your mug is being glazed a fourth time and then back in the kiln )=: I'm learning a lot about my glazes and how they react to each other.

lunavideogames What's a lime wheel? Is it like a Doorkey? My sister was so sad to find out that wasn't a pet related to a Donkey. Oh you mean on the Fruity Tiki Bob bowl! That whole bowl came out without any tweaking. You just never know. Same with the Disney tiki.

Hang10tiki that's so fun to hear. These "babies" leave home and never write.

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

Wish List #7 for luanvideogames

So many photos and so little time. It took a couple of hours just to get them edited down to these. But I think I'll have to put them up in phases as the day goes by.

First phase was posted when I did the sculpts. Then the firing. Then washing. Next phase is glazing and here comes da photos.

So many colors for four mugs each with a variation.


lunavideogames picked colors for the first three saving the last mug to be decided on later. They are bright like the title on Star Wars because these mugs represent Jaba The Hut and Leah. Am I still spelling that wrong?































I was not smart when sculpting. The hair rolls under and I have to glaze it and the skin.


I did the 3 layers on the hair and then scrubbed it off the skin. Then I did 5 layers on the skin but still had to go back and touch up the hair where it was touched. So much labor to glaze these mugs. I even used toothpicks and skewers to reach areas between the tiki and the mermaid.































Polynesian Paddy built a sand beach near the creek in his backyard. I bet this goes into Tiki Magazine. He's drinking from one of my mugs!

The finished mugs after firing.









































The last mug is the most like Jaba with a tail.



























All done and ready to head to San Diego. Wendy

Wendy, they look so great! Thanks for taking the time and effort to bring my vision of my home bar mug to life! I love seeing the step by step!

Maybe if we do some more in the future you could adjust the hair to make the glazing process easier? Anything to help it go smoothly for you, I am ok with

PS: Yes, the lime wheel is what they refer to the lime garnish you put on the older project as.

lunavideogames your wish is my command. Does that make sense? They look even better in person.

lunavideogames I have ordered diet colas with lime but that's as far as my bar skills go.

hang10tiki I love my new swap tiki and the guy who made it! The Tiki Bob coffee cup is so cute. Good job.

I am so lucky to have so many tiki buddies. You all bring joy into my life.

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

I have lots yet to share but I only have one wish left to make and it's another Black Velvet painting. Then the Wish List is done. Well not really I made a mug set for a wedding and the wife to be broke the one for the husband. I have to start from scratch. I'll be making some things to go with it to keep my kiln filled.

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

The past two weeks I've also glazed and fired a whole bunch of things for Mahalo Tiki. He buys my art and sells it at his booth at Tiki Oasis. Dan wanted some of the things I made but I said he had to trade. So he searched his collection and did some swaping. It was hard because he only has my best stuff in his collection.

Here are some of the things that are going to Oasis.



Before it was all packed up.


These are made for hanging on the wall.



A one of a kind King's Goblet coconut mug.


#5 Rapa Nui mug.


An AP Ren Clark tribute mug.



I did three glaze test Tiki Bob's. I wanted to see how layering the glazes would work out.


Just having fun but Nelson will see if anyone likes them enough to hand over some bucks.


I did two Cat Tiki Bob's front and back.








I remembered a couple more mugs and 30 prints of the Black Velvet Disney painting I did for Psycho Tiki D.


Nelson came and carted it all away.





I will be at the Artists reception at 1Pm on Saturday at Tiki Oasis. Stop by and say hi.

Cheers, Wendy

Wish List #7 getting closer to the end!!!

This was made as a wish for one fellow but is ending up in the hands of another Ken McCormick.
I will make another for the first wisher with an "ovoid" shaped coconut.

Can I really do this???


Glazing is so messy. First I did the inside of the mug.












After the coconut was dry I covered it with plastic wrap so that I wouldn't get drips on it while I glazed the girls and their hair.


So many colors and so many layers.


This was a really hard project.










I used CN glaze so I could do some designs on the clothing.









I love a bright white coconut meat so I always use arctic white under glaze and


then coat it with clear.



Looks like I didn't wash her elbow after the bisque fire. The dust made the glaze crawl.


If I have to touch up one spot I look for any other areas I can improve on and do them as well. Time to do a 2nd firing.


All done and posing.























I even did the bottoms!


This took a week to get it done. You just can't tell from the photos. Wendy

hang10tiki so glad, thank you. We have every photoshopped picture you have done of us on TC. We also have those from lunavideogames and Tiki Ano and everyone else. We love them. You keep us all entertained.

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

Wish List #7 Remember the KZap cat for Bullet that failed. Well I used the same jar of glaze and had this mug fail too. I had thought the problems were from dust but sometimes glaze just goes bad.

This wish is for HopeChest. He gets to have it for the price of shipping. It will do well on display. Here are all the steps that failed. What made it fail was hard design to glaze, my bad choices, bad glaze. Learn from my mistakes.

This mug was made to match this matchbook. I picked two glazes that were close.


I painted 3 layers of gold glaze on the mug and let it dry.


Then I scraped it off all the raised areas including the grass.





Then I wiped down all the areas with a wet paper towel.


All done with the gold.









Once all the 3 layers of gold were applied it was time to start on the green glaze.







Glazing around lettering is the hardest part of any project. I spent an hour to do one layer. It would need 2 or 3 more.


All of a sudden I had a bright idea (it will not go well). Why not glaze it green and then use this dental tool to


remove the green down to the layers of gold.


It looked really good. CN glazes are supposed to stay put so I thought this was a home run.





First firing in the kiln and the green and gold glaze over the entire mug had run together.


The gold glaze had also skipped in numerous place. Far worse than if it was from dust particles.



Second glazing and the bad glaze jar that was thrown out


after it still didn't work.


Third glazing with new glaze.


Still blending and not acceptable. If I make something like this in the future I'll use Duncan CC glazes not CN glazes.



After the third firing didn't work I decided to just fine tune it with Liquitex enamel paint. I mixed the color to match as close as I could get it.














Baked in the oven 325 degrees for 45 minutes.


Dan just finished boxing it for shipment. It will go out today. Wendy

PS there are still more wishes to show
