Thanks Mike! Your generous help and info is a big part of what pushed me to try this!

And speaking of mugs....I've listed my last Mug Of The Fisherman's God on ebay. This mug, #63, has an exterior crack running through its eye as seen in the pic. The interior is sound. I had painted it using Liquitex Glossies.

Terrific now you'll be joining us in the fun and horrors of mug making.
Good job on the painting for Oasis and eBay. This has been fun and
I'm looking forward to the next steps. Wendy

Wood Chuck'in turned out grrreat! Really funny concept executed very well!

Look forwards to you proving the dogs wrong about the mug making. Well... except MaddogMike I think he has more faith in you. You feed them... you wash them... you play with them... and still they have no faith in your tiki powers.

Ha! Thanks Tiger!

Been having a pretty hard time producing a mug from this mold. Not sure if the mold is not dry enough or if it's the casting in a well air conditioned home that's the issue? Either way, with much effort I finally managed to pull a mug. It's not perfect but it will do for a glaze test that's for sure. Any advice of how/where to cast would be appreciated. Keep in mind humidity here is super high usually and inside the hous eis usually pretty cool.

In other news. Topps, the trading card company contacted me to do sketch cards for their upcoming Mars Attacks series due out in October. I'll be doing trading card sized sketch paintings that will come one to a box of cards. So the odds of finding one are roughly 1 in 70 or so.


Here's a pic of the mug.

Congratulations. After it dries get some mesh see through sand paper and make sure that your mold lines are completely removed before you glaze it. No reason not to have this one be a perfect mug. Congratulations, Wendy

Right on! One mug then two and you learn all the time. You're doing exactly what you need to be doing and that is putting in the reps. You already took the hardest step and that was the first one. Way to go, I've got a big smile. Good luck!

mug looks good.

Congrats on the Topps gig, that's big time. Considering you will be doing the rare cards too. Super cool.
