IDoVoodoo I hope you make it to the Sacramento Crawl. It would be fun to have you meet more of the Ohana here.

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

Update on the Sacramento Crawl mug for October 2015.


While the kiln fired and cooled I started washing the glaze off the last 35 mugs.


Kiln Open. Top shelf.


Bottom shelf. I can fit in 21 mugs at a time so it will just take 2 more loads. Then I'll check for those needing more glaze and hopefully I can fix these in one last load. There are always small glitches with glaze and I like to deal with them.


I got to the last one after three days of washing.


Now they are all ready for the glazing marathon.


First mug shows the over-spray. The second mug shows how I painted over the over-spray. The third mug shows how this worked and the mugs look how I wanted them to look.


This shows how the mug will look now that the colors are finalized.


I worked too hard and now I am having back spasms with knots. Mahalo Tiki and Mary came over last night to pick up their purchases for Tiki Oasis. Check out their booth. Anyway I could hardly stand or walk while they were here. I want to glaze so this is a bummer.

I'm still smiling, I wish you all a day full of them, Wendy

Aloha, Wendy & Dan! I've been on TC hiatus, but just stopped in to catch up on your thread. Holy moly! Wow, I spent a bit of time glazing a bunch of pendants for the SD Ohana for Oasis, and complained the entire time. Wow, I shouldn't complain, the time and detail you put into each and every piece blows me away (every time)!

Love the Sac Crawl mugs, of course! Great to quickly read up, now time for bed!

Biotron2000 thank you. Yesterday and today I am able to walk fine. I just can't bend forward. I'm still working with Dan's help so I'm on schedule with the crawl mugs.

hang10tiki what I said to Biotron2000!

kingstiedye Tiki Central gets my posts first and then later on I do facebook. This is my home.

TikiAno when you have a new little boy to play with there isn't much time for art. He's worth it. I'm happy you check in and let us know what's up. The photo on the Swap page is adorable.

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

Update on the Sacramento Tiki Crawl mug. Every year I make 50 mugs and 40 sell and the last 10 go slowly over time. This year I made 60 and I only have 1 left and the crawl isn't until October! You'll see on this page that I'm making four more in different colors. If I run out at the crawl I'll have these as backups. I will destroy the mold when 100 have been made. The crawl run of 60 will not have their colors repeated.

After scrubbing off the glaze on areas to be glazed in colors I re-glazed all the caramel areas. Tiki, Palm Trunks and Bali Hai.
35 mugs ready for the next step after I eat my breakfast.


Next I did the bird and the flowers. I use shot glasses to hold the glaze for each color and a paint brush for each also.


I did 6 at a time and then Dan would swap trays for me and I would continue.


This part took 6 hours and I finished all the colors on 35 mugs.








This photo shows areas that lost glaze, in areas that need it, when I washed off the areas that needed color.


The next day when all the birds and flowers were dry I started adding background color to fine tune and to cover the accidentally washed off areas.


Even thought I go over each mug there may be areas that are thin and show up after firing. I will have to do more to those mugs.


More spots covered.


On 8/1/15 I have fired a load. Bottom shelf and


top shelf.


I can do 22 mugs and these had to wait. Tomorrow I'll be glazing them.


When I cast mugs I cast 64 in case any cracked when fired. None did and it left me with four extras. I am glazing them


in different colors as backups in case I run out at the crawl. 58 are already assigned. The mold mold will be destroyed when 100 have been made. 60 in the crawl colors.


I keep repeating this information so that there will be no misunderstandings. Thank you for the visit and comments.

I'm so happy to be near the end of glazing. Cheers, Wendy

July 24th was my 5th anniversary and when we got home from Key West I gave my husband the mug Wendy made for me. Here it is with the turquoise one that she made in 2012. Aren't they cute together?





Thanks Wendy!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!
