Did you soak it first in water? Otherwise the tiny holes that caused them would still be working their magic. It's really hard to make holes go away. That's why I pound the outside of the mold with a rubber mallet as the slip is poured inside. You get to learn all the pitfalls on your first two mugs. It took me since August 2010 to find them all!

No I'm gonna start doing that. They are hard fill up aren't they. You brush glaze and in a second the whole is there again.

I haven't tried the rubber mallet...if this keeps up I may try a sledgehammer!

No sledgehammer for you when mugs look this good coming out of the kiln.






About those holes. They look tiny but you can't rub them out with your finger when the clay is wet. You have to open them up and then fill them in with clay.
Here's what I mean.


Once you fire one of these holes you can't fill it with glaze. So you search for them when you are working with your piece.


The eye is opened.


Open the lip hole.


Fill them with clay and smooth and sculpt them to look good.


If you miss one you can sometimes hid it by using a glaze that is multicolored. One color you will always have it show.

Thank you very much for the mug, we will treasure it, Wendy and Dan

Yeah it's been a bit! Thanks Mike!

I hope to have more mugs ready to list in the store in a week or so. After completing my Mars Attacks cards, Topps asked me to work on Star Wars....so I'm in the middle of a bunch of sketch cards for that...after that's done I'll be back on my Shadow Tiki painting!

Thanks Wendy!

Only a few days to go for the GOLD DUST LOUNGE Kickstarter. Russell and the band and close to their goal. If you haven't given them a listen check it out. There is also a blog post at the Atomic Grog blog. Check it out and pre-order this cool record now! (and check out my cover art!)
