Henrik, you going to be able to patina that cleat somehow?



If the brass doesn't have a clear coat use lemon juice.
If it does then an overnight soak in paint and varnish remover first. The next day wash thoroughly with warm soapy water and finally clean with lacquer thinner right before you use the lemon juice. Then just let it air dry.
It only takes a few minutes to darken so watch for the patina you want.

This has worked for me with the customers that don't want new shiny brass next to the original.

No worries folks - the cleat will get a patina. No shiny bronze for me! I'm going to hit it with liver of sulfur (sulfurated potash) to blacken and age it. I'll scuff up the highlights then seal with caranuba wax. Should look great. Will report back soon!

Weathered and sealed cannon cradles drying on the workbench:



They turned out sooo great! Really happy with them - HUGE mahalo to the great TC artists for all your help on this one. Will be shooting "official" photos later this week of the assembled cannons - just wanted to share a quick peek.

Mahalo!

Wow, who knew this was even possible. A tiki cannon! I hope to see it in person at Oasis. Now is that possible? Wendy

Beautifully done and a perfect glaze match. Henrik, you first posted those on 7/22 (my birthday ) and you are finally getting them finished 10 months later! That tells me you are working way too hard and don't have nearly enuf free time to play

Mike, you hit the nail on the head (or should I say, the carving on the chisel?) there! We are re-grouping after a digital illustration/animation roller coaster that ended up swallowing all my time since few months prior to Tiki Oasis last year. Lots more clay fun is in the works!

Henrik

PS - the cradles did turn out to be a bit more complex than I thought. I had one done for Oasis last year - but was less than happy with the result. Took a few more months (or half-a-year) to dial the cradles in

Aloha!

So, this weekend I've been invited to teach a 1 day workshop at the Hawaii Potter's Guild. After pondering the possible things we could make out of clay in the limited amount of time, I settled on a small wall hanging shelf. I've made a small batch of sample shelves to show the class, and I thought you folks may enjoy a peek at the tiki themed shelf. Perfect landing pad for your favorite mug, or possibly just your car keys.





Mahalo for peeking!
Henrik "VanTiki"

Mahalo Wendy! I missed YOU two at Oasis! We will do our darndest to get over for this year's show. Here is a peek at another demo shelf I just finished for the class. Brace yourself: it is NOT a tiki!



I call it: A Shelf For Ahab, and it will be done in a nice white and grey underglazes with an angry smokey eye! Hope to crank out 2 more odd little shelves today and tomorrow for the class to give the students lots of construction options. Can't wait!

Henrik
