It amazes me that you nailed that with such perfection, they look identical, aside from the size difference. If you can do that, you can carve anything you want on a top notch level. Don't you wish you had started sooner!?!? ( I know I do)

THANK YOU ALL for the responses you have given me. I really appreciate all the feed back. I've been working on a new volcano mug prototype fit for molding, but I don't have any pics yet. Even if I did I am not quite set up to post any yet, but I'm getting close. I'll keep you updated.

Thanks again
Pop

A list? I don't know. What do you people think. I'm kinda slow you know.

O.K. guys, here you go. In one of the previous posts JohnnyP said it was too bad drinks didn't come in the "Big Bob" size so you would only need one. That got me on the line of doing the whole banana with him. Thanks to Helztiki and my Tikimom I now have "Big Bob" all dressed up for the party. What do you guys think? Hope I can get the pics posted. Here goes.









p.s. It's all wood except the leaves and straw.
Thanks pop

I think it's great! Tiki Bob is one of my all-time favorite tiki designs. You did a fine carving of him. The garnishes look great, but he dosen't suffer without them.

Hello Everyone,

I know I've been gone from here for a while but I've been real busy. Here's the up date.

After the positive response I received about my volcano mug I found someone who gave me some good advice about mold making and plaster mixing and the whole thing. I also bought a book on the subject and studied it. After learning the finer points of proper plaster mixing I built a mold from the model I had already done. The mold has six separate pieces because of the depth of the undercut on the model. It was no easy thing but I got it done.

After the mold and plaster learning curve I then got an education in the finer points of slip and slip casting. To get to the point,I have been pouring volcano mugs and have several ready to fire the first time, and I have more to clean and prep.

As soon as they are fired I can apply the glaze and fire a second time and have finished mugs.

Here is an attempt to post some of the pics.


This is the original model I built.


The same model with color.


The mold with slip poured.


First opening of Mold.


Various profile views.





Bottom view. I guess it's obvious, sorry.


Some of the done ones.



I hope this worked.

Thanks for looking.

poptiki, can't wait to see your mug pictures. I'm really excited to see TCers making their own mugs!

Edited because your post beat me by a couple of minutes... Nice pictures! Really good work. Thanks for sharing!
