Thanks a lot Sam and Hiphip! Babalu, thanks also for the guidance. The glazed one was actually bisque fired and then glazed and fired again, so it's safe for use. I am leaving the slip in the mold for 40 minutes. It comes out with some nice heft and yet not too heavy. It's a trip how this whole slipcasting thing works. I need to bring it all into my classroom and show my 3rd graders how to make a tiki mug(aka the teacher will get to make another mug during the day).

These are looking really nice TK. Can we see pics of the other glazes you did?

Sweeter and sweeter.

and yeah, give those slacker 3rd graders a useful skill. Get 'em young and train 'em hard.

Sam-Thanks for the comment. Funny, we just hung one of your superkool Orbit Room signs in our bathroom and are considering using it as a color palette for a new paint job.




Thanks a bunch, Tiki Kaimuki.... You could match them to the picture or just get a SignPainters 1-Shot enamel color chart which is the paint I use!

Just kidding!

More glaze experiments. This is turning out to be the most challenging part.
The guy in the middle is going to be a special version.

I like the black one. Are you mixing your own colors or not getting what you expect from off-the-shelf glazes?

Thanks, Silverline. I'm just using off the shelf glazes right now. Even application is the biggest challenge. The black one was supposed to come out flat, but it fluxed and got all glossy.

Yeah Hip, I think an antiqued type white might be interesting for a future edition...

Harro, thanks for the compliment.

Haole'akamai, yes I will be most likely drinking out of one of my mugs at FI on Saturday. Stop by and we'll tip a mug to our newly toasty weather.

I think I like the black 'n' brown the most too - if you can get the black matt or satin finish (I'm thinkin OMC moai) you're on to a winner!
