I love all your Tiki Bobs; they turn out amazing. Some of that is the genius of his initial design, but mostly itís your incredible talent. Iím starting to dream about my own Bob for Wish List 9....

Hamo thank you. I love doing Tiki Bob alterations. It's really fun work as you'll see in the next couple of days.

hang10tiki I've been looking at Gallery and Tiki Carving and you've been as busy as I have been. Great work too.

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

I had some room left over when I made the five wishes so I made a couple of Tiki Bobettes.
Here is the start of the first one.


I cast two mugs and cut one up.


I stick them together and


build up the clay so that they are now one.


I made flowers around her head.


Then I started on the hula skirt.


Close up.


I added arms and hands.


All done and posing. Time to let her dry.















I'm always ready to do another Tiki Bob. The Wish List sends me in many directions. Wendy

Here is the second Tiki Bobette the sexy version.

I make a mess while working and I clean up with many paper towels. I don't want clay dust going through the pipes in my home.


I thought I was finished.


I even took a close up. Then I remembered I needed to do the texture on the body.


All done and posing.











With a flash and


without a flash.


One day I will count how many Tiki Bob's and Bobette's I've made. Wendy

After a month of drying inside and out of a plastic bag the Bobette's were bisque fired, scrubbed and ready to glaze.

Three layers of every glaze color with them drying in between. I have been able to save up photos to show weeks of work at one time. It's not fast and easy like the photos show.








































They also dry completely before firing. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki here are the finished Tiki Bobette's. They are for sale $200 each plus shipping. They are 11 inches tall.
I believe they have sold. They did.

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


It's always fun and scary to open the kiln. The ladies were just fine and ready to leave home.














Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Wendy

Wow! I'm not the biggest fan of Tiki Bob, but those Bobettes are out of this world! Kudos, Wendy. They're outstanding.

Prikli Pear I must be doing something right because I often hear that when posting Tiki Bobs. He needs to stick around since he was the first tiki mug invented.

hang10tiki 11 inches tall. They may be the tallest lady Bobs out there! They appreciate the compliment!

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

Well friend even though I've been posting projects Dan and I have actually been on the Big Island of Hawaii for 10 days.
I will now start to post my favorite photos. I did make some videos and those are on facebook.

Day one.

We are staying 5 days at the Fairmont Orchid on the Kona Coast and then we will travel to Hilo for 5 days.

I chose this hotel because it has the most beautiful grounds of any hotel on the Kona side. If you don't stay here you can always come here to just walk around and have a meal. That's what we have done in the past. There is a large free self parking area on the left just as you see the hotel entrance. The grounds have many man made waterfalls.

Our garden view room actually had a view of the ocean. See the light blue spot in the center of the screen? Are room was perfectly located.


They have a lagoon with sea turtles swimming with you.


More soon, Wendy

Ha! I've got nothing against Bob personally. I appreciate his place in history and acknowledge his significance. His aesthetic just doesn't do much for me (I understand there are others far more intense in their dislike). While I may be indifferent to Bob, the same cannot be said for your Bobbettes. They are really cool. The personal touches you've added are sublime.

Envious of your Hawiian getaway. The Wife and I have long had Hawaii on our short list of vacation destinations, but haven't quite made it out there yet.

Prikli Pear thank you again. I just love comments. Living in Texas you are right in the middle when it comes to airfare to the Carribean or Hawaii and it takes long enough just from California. For you California or Florida would be a wonderful trip without such a long time in a plane. We were so lucky this time only one plane was an hour late to depart and it didn't effect our time getting home. our last time there it was an 8 hour delay because the food truck ran into the plane and the dent had to be checked by an inspector. We used our $200 we are sorry airline money on these tickets. It was only good for a year so we had a good excuse to hurry back to a Hawaiian Island. Can't pass up free money.

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

This will be a catch up post. First I took more photos of the Tiki Bobette's. They shipped out today.












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

We received a wonderful gift in the mail today from Debbie-Eyman-Whitehead clear from the state of Washington. She is part of the Sacramento Ohana. She and her husband attend the Sacramento Crawl each year.

Inside the box Dan found an entire wardrobe of Hawaiian shirts. He had so much fun hanging them around the dining-room table. When he was done he came and got me to view all the terrific shirts. It will be such fun to see him wear them. Thank you so much Debbie that was an over the top gift. He says they all fit him just right.










All I can say is WOW!

hang10tiki in my best Elvis voice, "thank you very much".

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

Day two on the Big Island of Hawaii at the Fairmont Orchid.

The first event of the day is the breakfast that came with our room. Also we paid for four nights and got one free and breakfast came with the free room too.

This was so over the top that breakfast became an event to look forward to. This photo shows some of the hot food areas.


The Deli area.


The fruit area and the first fruit is Dragon Fruit that I now love.


Cheese and crackers and goodies in the jars. The bright red lumps were spiced Macadamia nuts that were wonderful. I never was able to find them to buy elsewhere on the island.


The salad and yogurt bar.


Donuts. I never did try one because there were so many other things to try.


Roasted vegetables, pastries and oatmeal.


Dan loved this so much he didn't want to leave the resort. Behind him is the crepe station


where they made custom to order crepes using


all of these fillers.


After a lot of different choices we


were back at our table. My breakfast was perfect.


The view spectacular.


This shows the restaurant as we left to start our day.


It was a dream come true to stay at this very special place.

The day was just beginning. Cheers, Wendy

What a lovely resort, and what a lovely bunch of Tiki Bobs (and Bobettes) there. Once I figured out that Bobs are supposed to look like a carved palm tree, that's when it clicked and I kinda' like them now
