Thanks, Hilda my ol' carving buddy! I saw you from across the room at the ITMP, but you disappeared. I was anchored to my table so I was unable to chase you down. Haha, maybe next time!

What the...? Is this Moai going to clown school?



Nope, I placed colored stickers to be used as a mask for
the effect I was looking for.



Then sprayed black underglaze.




Then clear gloss, and Bam! A custom glazed one off mug!

It's named Randy Rhoads.

\m/ Rock on, TikiCentral! \m/

You have joined the MadDogMike experimenters club. This is just so cute. Some day I'm going to try some fun experiments and join the club. Wendy

MadDogMike- Thanks! Glad to have been able to provide you with that tidbit of knowledge.
tikiskip- My eyes were crossed for a few days, but I got better! Thanks for visiting.
danlovestikis- Wendy! You are the chairperson of the Fun Experimenters Club!
TikiAno- Thanks, Dave! Yeah, I didn't get into how I did the glaze on FB . TC is more inquisitive group so I saved it for here.
VanTiki- Mahalo, my island friend!
Clarita- íHola, amiga! Si, el proceso fue un poco complicado, pero divertido!
hiltiki- Thanks Hilda! And I am YOUR fan!
hang10tiki- Thanks Jon! At first I thought those were something you picked up at Woodstock, but then realized it's candy. Oh my!

Here is the first round of glazed seahorse mugs

I'm making 5 of each of these colors....


...and 5 of each of these colors. Later I'll be doing a few fancy custom one offs.










More are on the way!


Giddyup, lil' doggies!

Thanks for visiting

Bowie
