The flamingo on Vamps mug looks fantastic Wendy, as does my mug. I'm looking forward to seeing how the colours i chose will look together. Keep up the great work.

Matt, from another Blue Bob Brotherhood member: welcome to the gang, your mug will rock...
Vamp the flamingo is a cool idea, and who better to bring it to life than the one and only "W"
Swizzle is going to have one great personalized mug

Dan and Wendy
Thanx for the afternoon fix

Love the Flamingo Bob, is it going to be flamingo pink (from eating all the shrimp?)

On my way to Michigan in the morning to help my oldest daughter with her new son (born 11-6-2012, weight 6 lbs 6 oz, length 20 3/4 inches) Ian Anthony Maurice. Will catch up with you when I get out there. Grandchild number 6 for me, number 1 for him.

Professor G you are a wonderful ring leader.

swizzle I'm so happy you like it. One more photo below.

hang10tiki thank you always. Your Honu is being packed up today. I wish I were on my way to Las Vegas!

MadDogMike back at you I love your pirate ship, El Tiki mug and Ambien bottle. Is that how its spelled???

Philot
Great, that raises the question, "Why no Tiki DAN?!

Answer, he's for my hands only!

WaikikianMoeKele Vamp has requested a pink mug and I'll do my best to fulfill her wish.

Congratulations on Ian's birth. I bet you have an unending smile.

VampiressRN
I'll be adding a beak today. I soaked the face last night so that adding clay should work.

Progress Wish List #3 and some misc.

I fine tuned the writing on Swizzle's mug.

I added design to Matt the Cat's Blue Bob's Brotherhood mug.

I added palm frond detail to Vampiress RN's Flamingo mug.

I found one more place in my home to place tikis in the works. They are drying.


Today is the last SALE day for Roge's chunk lamps. Check out my thread on Marketplace. I love advertising for him.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=41701&forum=12&start=120&133

MP invented the Suffering Bastard Bob. Dan's on the list waiting a mug and a bowl. hang10tiki asked me to make a Suffering Bob and so I made sure that I didn't look at MP's design. I've tried to make it my own.

First step is making Bob look more like a Moai.

It's far from done.

I used a Tiki Farm design and I noticed that my Bob has skinny legs.

I've made a huge mistake. After I got this far I re-read the note from hang10tiki and found that all he wanted was the addition of arms and legs added to Bob. Dan's volunteered to take this off your hands hang10tiki, let me know what you think.

Woody please contact me. I have the photo of your cat and nothing else. I've started work on the Bob mug for your wife. This photo shows my model.

I made the part that goes into the mug so it won't fall off.

I need more photos of your cat front sides back. Do some with a flash.


Wish List #4 has begun. I quit working on #3 for the day. Dan and I had dinner and then started watching recorded shows. I decided to work on the Ren Clark tribute mug. Dan let me use the one I made for him in 2006. It's clay. I found last summer that if I mold something with enamel paint it will stick to the plaster. The heat of the setting plaster melts the paint. So to use this one and maybe to save it from destruction I'm covering it with a layer of clay.

My sculpt.


I beat NOTCH in making these but I wasn't a ceramicist yet. I made a few in clay and sold them on eBay. Now I'll make them in ceramic. I have a list on page one of who wants to buy one $125 each plus shipping. If you want to sign on let me know here or by PM.

Adding clay during Dateline, The Great Race and 24.


It still needs all the detail added but at least I've started.

Now its time to start my work day. I have so much glazing to do for Don the Beachcomber's sale on December 2nd. This is a premiere event run by Soccer Tiki and his wife Woo Hoo Wahine. Please come and say hi if you live down there.

Cheers, Wendy

Hi W
I think what your doing with suffering bob is great.
You can run with it, I like the way your mind thinks.
If Dan wants the 1st edition, I'll understand.
Lookin great so far...

I'm on the list for the severed head mug too and
it looks like the fun has started...

This is going to be fun to watch

Jon

Hey Wendy,
if you ever need a non-plaster mold made of anything, let me know. Like the severed head mug, I could easily make a silicone or rubber mold of your original mold without damaging it, from which you could pour a new positive to make a plaster mold from. Or, for example, I've made silicone positives that you can make a new plaster mold from.
Anyway, always happy to help! Good luck!
-Lucky

hang10tiki I hope I can always make it fun. I'm having a blast.
Hale Tiki, cool I'll keep that in mind.

Progress Report Wish List #3 and etc.

I've started glazing for the Don the Beachcomber Sale on December 2nd. However if any of you who read my thread see something you want just let me know.

I start by spraying with water. This starts "capillary" action that makes the glaze stick better.

I decided to do a couple of colors at a time and then swap out the colors. NO more tables so full of glaze that there's no room for the ceramics.

I did 3 layers on the bottoms and then I turned them over and did the insides.

After working from morning until late at night I had this many done.


During my glazing breaks I worked some clay.

Vampiress RN wanted Bob to look like a flamingo like the one on the back of her mug.

I made a beak. It didn't look right so before bed I printed a photo. Wow I need to work on this today.


hang10tikis Suffering Bob has now been improved. I've added so much clay that my fingers are crossed that it will not have more than one crack (see last photo)!

No more skinny legs.




!!! Wendy

Wowwwwwwwwww. Wendy, look forward to meeting you at Don's in December- and picking up some of your amazing work. Well, I'll also probably pick your brain on clay stuff, too.

W
Suffering Bob looks great
and heavy...I love how thick your mugs are.
Some mugs out there are very thin, not yours...

And even though it's a huge mug, your right, 1 crack should do...

As usual, cannot wait to see it all done!
