Aloha Beachin,
Sorry to hear about the misfire. What a bummer, but as Benz said, these are the things that make us learn and become pro's. I had some trouble getting some last minute work together for Oasis. Out of nowhere all the reds in my prints are coming out green. I goofed on it for hours before finally moving on. Turns out ther was a loose nut behind the keyboard...Me!
What I have learned is when rushing things, there is a tendency of overlooking the basic simple things. My mistake was forgeting to peel the paper off the ink cartridge so it could "breathe." Doink! What a maroon.
I was hopin' to get over to your booth and checkout the mugs but was so caught up in my world I didn't get to meet hardly any of the artist and vendors I was hoping too. Good to here your latest batch worked out.
Cheers,
Chongolio

P.S. You can send all those ruined mugs to Poly Pop, Just make to put them in a bag and drop them from a roof first Poly-pop is the Broken mug Kahuna

Thanks for the responses. Yea...I don't like to rush things cuz I made dumb mistakes that I would never make if I thought about it. Just got caught up under the stress of the trip.

I have a fried that says her show isn't successful unless something goes a little wrong. I don't want to think like that.

Only broken piece I have now is a platter the Homeland Security nazis broke on the flight back. So glad our planes are safe from ceramic platters! Apparently, they are a threat unless they are broken.

Sorry to hear about the wrong color ink, Chongolio. ...eek...maybe set a new fashion statement...green is the new red. "Make it so, No. 1"

OK....these guys are going back into the kiln tomorrow. I thought I'd do a before and after. See the glaze that didn't melt? Let's hope I can fix that. They need names. The back of the goblet is pretty plain, but the back of the mug says "This is what a Rum Hangover Looks Like"

Cool looking designs. Waiting to see the after pics

Just went to your website - you got some cool stuff. I like the squid with boobs. "Honest - its just a squid with big eyes baby. I hadnt even noticed it resembled the body of a topless hula dancer"

Thanks, Hewey. Did you see the solo show pics I posted? I had a shelf of boobs in my art show and the Chancellor of the college made a crack about it. It sort of became something I'm known for. The squid turns upside down but you can only drink out of the end that is smooth.

Thanks for looking. I'm about to rebuild my site to reflect my new work and make it more user-friendly. I've had a lot of advice on it, and I've been keeping a book of ideas.
