Best. Bob. Ever. Not talking about Jon's Dan-O Bob, but the Honu Hideaway one. Wendy, can liquid fit into the mini-Bob?

Busy here with work and baby- haven't had a second to post up updates on my Art Swap piece- which is coming along.

Glad to check in here and see some inspiring- and inspired work.

hang10tiki Dan loved your latest creation. So did I. It would be fun to make a mugs mug like that.

TikiAno how is Tiki Ari and Maya doing? Yes the little Tiki Bob is a hollow mug made on my finger.

===================================================


Here are a couple of Tiki Hunting trips that Dan and I went on that were within an hour of our home.

On the first day of treasure hunting we went to Claim Jumpers in Roseville and found the best tasting buffet brunch we have ever been too. That was last Sunday.

At the Treasure Trove we spotted these statues but Dan's only looking for tikis.


He passed on the cute drink dispenser.


We found the same walking stick as last time but since we have one he passed on this as well.


He did find a new plate with the Place Of Refuge tikis on it so that went home with us.


====================================================

Two Days later we headed past Roseville to Lincoln and Loomis.

The fall colors were finally in play.


I found a carved wooden bird that I brought home.


We found a beautiful nursery and I posed for this photo


and Dan showed off his new hat.


A tiki free zone but we had fun anyway.

========================================================

Am I having way too much fun with Tiki Bob? It's fun doing these and relaxing as I get closer to opening Wish List #5.

I'm converting Tiki Bob into a peanut mug. First the top rim.


Eyes and forehead.


Under his nose.


Adding on the ears.


Cleaning his ears with a wet brush.


Finished the face and ear carvings.


Hands and arms built up with sticky clay.


All done and posing.














Close up's with a flash, Bob will always pose for another photo. He's a ham.





What do you think? Are you tired of Tiki Bob? I still have ideas for him to execute. Cheers, Wendy


PS I'm going to work on the Hawaiian Shirt Swap soon.

I took a photo of Dan's shirt and printed it. Now his shirt has been returned to the closet. This will be my inspiration for the painting.

hang10tiki I remembered one step left undone on your mug. Here it is...
Rings around the tiny Tiki Bob mug.



========================================================================

It's Saturday many of you are having fun now or will later so I'll just share another repair job I did for Dan.
Warning ***she's nude***.

Dan couldn't resist this vintage statue for $20. He had fallen so in love he didn't notice that her arms had been broken off and when glued on there were big chunks of glue sticking out. She was also missing fingers and spots of paint here and there. But since she was made of plaster and so incredibly well done I consented to do a repair job. Not a perfect one but enough so he could display her in his tiki jungle room.

This technique can also be used to repair broken tiki mugs etc.

First I broke off some of the chunks of glue.


Next I used Elmer's Wood Filler to build up bracelets around the arm fractures.


With both covered I let her sit for a couple of days. I checked to see if the wood filler had cracked. It hadn't so I didn't need to do more than to sand the bracelets flat.


Her fingers and one toe had also gotten damage in what must have been a bad fall.


Using Elmer's I built the fingers. They dried overnight and


then I used a wet paper towel to sand them.


I was lucky enough to have a ceramic paint that matched her headdress so I painted the bracelets.


To remove the brush strokes I wet my finger and gently ran it over the gold paint.


I finished both bracelets.


I found the right color for the base.


I painted it and let it dry. My last step was to paint all the flesh areas and to paint her finger nails red.


All done and posing.














Dan found a perfect place for her in the tiki jungle room.


Now it's time for a Tiki Hula visit. He should be at the door in 10 minutes. Cheers, Wendy

Shield my eyes!



Wendy, since you asked, Tiki Ari is doing well. He's learning to hula...



and drinking espresso...



All attempts at keeping him well-rounded might backfire on us but we're hoping for the best.

TikiAno what's next the chocolate mix??? If you go to Marketplace and we do too I need to place an order. I love his expresso, I mean expression! On Dan's face too.

LoriLovesTiki They did and thank you for the suggestion.

TikiAno I think he's getting some help with the hula.

hang10tiki the swap entries are looking fine.

hang10tiki (o: I can never see enough of Dan. GROG's cute too.

hang10tiki as you can tell by the Art Deco woman Dan collects what he enjoys looking at, that's all it takes.

==========================================================

Tiki Atari rewarded Dan and I for our work on his Kickstarter project. The mugs and t-shirts are by Horror in Clay.



==========================================================

We had a visit from Tiki Hula yesterday. He wanted to take flaming photos of the Al DEAD bowl and the Albert's Tiki Village bowl.

First we ran to Bev Mo for some 501 Rum. He said this brand is only good for burning not drinking. He said it should be named
Swill.


We set up the MadDogMike studio and Tiki Hula poured in the rum and set it on fire.

Inside the coconut mug.


View one and


view two.


Next up is the AL DEAD bowl.


He poured in the Rum into the three pony tails and the center of the Fez.


We both took photos.

















My camera didn't have a fast enough shutter speed nor enough light so they were all blurry.


We were happy with our photos and called it a day.

=======================================================


Time to write bills and make some dinner. I hope you all had a good weekend. We sure did looking at all the fun messages. I hope GROG didn't miss his.

Cheers, Wendy

Wendy & Tiki Hula - those flaming Al Dead shots are FANTASTIC!!

Wendy, you told me to post pictures of the kitchen when it is done so here's some - There are are more on my FB page. Since we're hosting Thanksgiving all those finishing touches needed to get finished and they are! And the tiki has creeped into the kitchen! There are a couple of carvings on the wood between the kitchen and the tv room as well as The Book of Tiki and a couple of mugs. The Tiki Pop book was too tall and since the wood doesn't stick out very far only a couple of the smaller mugs. We don't want anything to fall off!






Edited to add pictures b/c I wasn't logged in.
