Hamo I resemble that remark! I miss John Aston and the cast of the Adams Family.

bamalamalu I hope you had a wonderful Halloween.

hang10tiki Dan is so wonderful to comply with my requests. He really would rather stay home and play music.
You two are so cute.

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

As soon as Wish List #7 finished I actually went to work (very slowly) on Wish List #8. I picked out some projects that were requested just after #7 closed or that I was in the mood to do. All five are done and shipped and it's time to start sharing.

This is for Owen Wright.

I made one on Wish List #7 that had texture on the coconut and that wasn't what he really desired. So it's the first Wish on #8 finished.



This is one of the hardest to glaze projects. So many colors (3 to 4 layers for each one) and so many odd angles to reach. I start with the backs of the heads doing the hair.


Next I do the inside and rim with white under-glaze. Then when it is dry I do the clear over glaze.


Once this is dry I do the outside of the coconut with a self glossing under-glaze like Duncan Concepts.


I choose a color the same as the coconut but with speckles. This is one of the hard to reach areas. 3 layers drying between each one.


I start the skin. One layer.


Second layer.


3rd and 4th layer. They must completely dry between. So I move on to other areas during the drying times.


Starting the next hula girl.


After a week of working on this project it is drying and then it is glazed.


Here it is finished.








The faces are painted on using Liquitex Glossies and 24 hours later they are baked for 45 minutes at 325 degrees in my home oven.








Looking into the insides. Using white under=glaze really makes this glow white.


I do like to glaze the bottoms.


He was very happy with this one and it's on the way to New York. It's so big and heavy that shipping costs were almost $70 dollars.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki thank you for the visit, if only it were to our home. Tomorrow I will post another finished Wish List #8 project. I'm going slowly and it's working out really well.

The second Wish on Wish List #8 is done.

Altering through the addition of clay, carving and drying then bisque firing.



I put a ball as a brace to hold the soft arms, hands and mug in place until they firm up.




























Glazing the mug. Three layers of glaze for each color.



























Out of the kiln and ready to tattoo the arm.














Taken by Fred Ferrer once it arrived at his home.

Another wish fulfilled! Wendy

hang10tiki that's Frankie's tiki that's smoking. It is bad for you. I had two women I worked one who smoked and one who worked where there was smoking. The first one died before retiring and the second one right after. Now Dan and I have a friend and a relative who have COPD one is 40 years old. Gasping for breath is horrible. My wish is for everyone to stop.

CY thanks for the visit. It always reminds me to go check out your work. Wow that is one tall tiki pole, good job.

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

The third Wish for Wish List #8 is for Andreus Gibson. He wanted a Tiki Bob with the design of his favorite carpet as his body. He also requested hands and feet and a small Tiki Bob in one of those hands.

This is the carpet.


To be able to add little feet to Tiki Bob I had to make him taller. I sacrificed a mug to cut off the bottom and to add it to this one.


After the added clay has firmed up it needs to be carved down until this area is the same thickness as the other areas. If this isn't done it will most likely crack as it dries.


I use a piece of paper to mark the design on the clay and then I go back and carve with with a stick that I've sanded to the right size. I did that to the end of a wooden skewer to make a square and that I pressed into the clay.


I did the design where it fit around the mug.


The little shoes were fun to do.


I did my best to match the colors of his photo.


Three layers going around all the carving took a very long time.


First layer.


Third layer. Dry them between each layer. Out in the wind works well.





Time t fill in the indentations.


All done.


Time for the clear glaze.


After firing this is how it looked.












It's good to have a few projects done ahead of time and there are a few more to show. Wendy

Wendy; thank you for so much making this mug for me! It is unbelievably perfect in every way. Last night I went out with it in Portland Oregon to Hale Pele, and the entire staff and most of the customers were enmored with it and wanted your info! The bartender even made me a Mai Tai in it and gave the teeny-tiny Bob a sprig of mint! I got some pictures in the bar and then some today with the actual carpet that used to be at Portland Airport!

I'm laughing so hard at her expression! Also happy Blue Bob was christened at Hale Pele--every tiki mug should be so lucky!

DixonAlibi thank you so much for including me in this fun. I love hearing that the mug was well received. The photos are wonderful.

hang10tiki thank you for the blown up photo. I put it on fb too. It's really funny.

Prikli Pear hang10tiki has all the tricks for making the best out of photos.


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

Jason T. Smith wanted his bar logo to be made as a white faced Tiki Bob.


I did my best to get the details onto a Tiki Bob face.








Done and ready to dry.








After bisque firing it was time to glaze him.








I always do white under-glaze on Bob faces and then clear over that.





Dan noticed that upside down it had another tiki face.





Done.

The last of the early made wishes is for David Nelms aka Chippy. He is thinking of the day he will retire and wanted a mug to have for that occasion. He drew a picture and I asked him for a photo of his favorite Hawaiian shirt. Here are some of the steps.

He and his wife.


Here is his drawing.


I have to make the bottom of the mug taller so I can do the shirt so I sacrifice a mug and cut off it's bottom.


I add it to the mug that I'm working on.


I add clay so that it all ties together. (from prior posts you can see how I have to clean out the inside of this piece later on).


Glasses, shirt


and lei.


Done and ready to dry.


After bisque firing it's time to glaze the mug.














Here's his shirt and


here is the finished mug.












Five wishes have been finished and shipped. I also did a couple of unclaimed mugs that I'll share soon.


Cheers, Wendy
