Hale Tiki, yes it will be double the size. Think of the original as an orange and the new one as the size of a large grapefruit. I ended up working on it this morning before we began the mold process. Different lighting changes everything when you are copying. Making an original is so much easier. I used Super Sculpey because I thought I might be able to save the original if I did.

hang10tiki I never stop working for very long because I don't want you all to forget me! I found a button that said to confirm the changes and to save them. So maybe my sideways days are over.

tiki beat by marcus thorn welcome to my thread. Swizzle has been a friend from Australia for years and recently visited us at our home. Thank you for the visit here.

lunavideogames hi Treg, I may have found the solution save button. Thank you. Guess what? SMBacon who asked for the very first Pac Man Bob was at the Don the Beachcomber sale. I should have had you meet. Or have you? When he got home he sent me the map for making the female version of Pac Man which he's had on the Wish List for a very long time. I was surprised to see that it's just what you wanted too. So now I'll make two at the same time but much better because of the detailed map he's sent.

Chippy the party at Soccer Tiki's and Woo Hoo's was wonderful. The best part was meeting you and all their other friends. Some were new and some old for us. I'll be watching for that email.

GROG I only get Mac's at McDonald's. Good to see you here.


MadDogMike today I did as you suggested and took all my photos so that I wouldn't have to rotate them. Then playing with the computer I found a finalize button. I hope that will do it in the future.

Progress Report:


Here's a photo for size comparison. That's the real deal on the right.


I opened the molds and cleaned the Bobs and put them in baggies.


I bought the supplies for the Tiki Bob Torches. They will have a flickering light on top and the wooden base that I will paint.


It's Saturday night and it is time to party on Garth! Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki it is always fun to read your comments.

Progress Report on the Severed Head.
Here's Dan's collection again.
Notches version, my bowl version, my mug version (both done in 2005 in clay), a real Ren Clark severed head. I did mine from a photo. When we got a real one we were surprised that it was so small.


It's never to late to tweak the sculpt, so just before we molded it I did just that.


I used really soft clay to press around the ears.


Dan worked to make snakes for the mold box.


I figured out I could make 2 sides at the same time. Front and Back. So I built a wall where the side pieces would go. I didn't put the box around it until I had mold soaped the sculpt three times. The soap is just a barrier since it's not preventing plaster from sticking to plaster.





The box was put together and the snakes put along the seam lines.


Dan and I mixed the 1st grade plaster until it was like buttermilk on my fingers.


After it was poured and had hardened was took off the side. We now have the front and back done.


I did not want the pieces to come loose so I left all but one side of the box together while I began to carefully remove the clay.


I took out the middle clay so I could grab the sides to pull the rest out.


I used a sharp tool to cut the plaster at the bottom of each slab so it would be tight when I poured the side pieces. I used a brush and put on three layers of mold soap wiping it away between each application. It was easier to do it with the side off.


I added the snakes to all the seams. The same steps were accomplished on the other side. Doing two each time saved a lot of work.


After the side pieces were poured and hardened I removed the box and we strapped it all together. Then I rasped the top to make the four pieces the same height so I could turn it over.


The bottom is now exposed. I carved into it Back From The Dead Ren Clark c 2013 Wendy Cevola
I added an edge so that the bottom will be like the original.


Dan noticed that I didn't have locks. I used a melon scooper to make some. One in each corner. Dan pointed out that in the past we varied them to make it easier to put together. He really saved the day. This is a team effort. So I added one more dip to one of the sides.


We always wear face masks when we have plaster or clay dust floating around. At the end of the day we clean up.


I'm leaving the mold in one big strapped piece for a few days. Then we will open it to see if the sculpt survived or if I lost it. Most importantly is whether or not the mold will work for this project.


Let me know if you want to sign up for one $125 each. The list of buyers so far is on page 1 of this thread. Cheers, Wendy

Hey Wendy,
I have not met SM Bacon. That is very cool to hear that he did another board for the Ms Pacman. I am excited to see how that will look. I guess I asked for that one at the right time since he wants one as well. I will have to thank him for the design!

Glad you got your PC camera issues fixed. It always takes some time to get used to new computers. The Ren's are looking great and I hope your mold works!!! Keep up the great work!

Treg, when all these are done I'll start working clay again and you know what that means!
Kele what is your home address, oh wait Dan has it! He likes those heads are you keeping yours on tight?
hang10tiki this ones for you!


Progress Report Wish List #3

I've started glazing again. I started by glazing the inside of the mugs. That's why some are upside down.

First up is hang10tikis Suffering Bob.


Marone Tiki's Scuba Bob, Matt the Cat's Palm Tree Bob and Swizzles Bob.


Then on to Atomic Chicks Pac Man Bob.

Picture this, every glaze requires 3 coats. So I've only just begun.

Sm Bacon made the Bob map for me. Soon I'll be working on two Female Pac Bob's


Every day is fun, thank you always, Wendy

Hey Wendy,

This is probably a dumb question and has been answered elsewhere (but since I'm lazy and am known for dumb questions, I'll fire away) . . . how do you get the interior of the mugs (negative space?)? Another way to ask I guess is what is the outside of the mug "around" if anything?


Second question is, when you are recreating the severed head, do you turn your model "right side up" at all or do you leave it in situ i.e. resting on it's "top"?

Sorry we won't see you on Thursday, but we'll hoist a glass for you and to Dan's speedy recovery!

Love ya,

GREG

Ahhhhh, Suffering Bob is transforming into his final color,
Thanks for the update.

And everything else looks good too.

Jon

Ps- I can't wait to see what you come up with for the Mad Dog Mike Sea Creatures art swap...

Hey Wendy, just to let you know if you didn't already MS Pacman is a bit different than regular Pacman. There are no keys or many of the bonus objects that Pacman has, instead there are different fruits (and oddly, a pretzel) and the outline of the maze on the first level is in pink instead of blue. Here is a link to KLOV (killer list of video games) site with some good reference pics and a video of the game in action: http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=8782 .

Wow! I've been away for a while and spent an hour catching up and just picking my jaw up of the floor. As always, Amazing Wendy and Dan...(BTW Dan I miss the 'stache. Made you look like a retired cop, especially with a Hawaiian shirt and tiki in hand)

Here are long over due photos of the Wolfman bob in place and with me. (notice the one with boobies my wife made me put zombie side out and in the back...sigh...)



Eventually, when the other Monster Bobs arrive, I will have a dedicated shelf and a friend has offered to paint up a background for them. Of course that's way down the line.

The Blue Kahuna a mold is made and the whole interior is that negative/empty space. It's made of absorbent plaster so when you pour in the slip/liquid clay the plaster starts to pull out the water making the clay firm where it is in contact with the mold. Testing tells you how long to wait until you pour out the slip that is still liquid. This leaves the empty mug behind. It sits over night and then the next day you open the mold and take it out. All the extra like the opening you poured through is cut off. Look at the photo with the Bobs a few posts back where they still have it on the top of their heads.
Wendy,

I pour in through the neck and then pour out through the neck. Then same thing it sits upside down over night. Thanks for stopping by I was thinking about you yesterday. We'll miss you all on Thursday. Where are you going?

hang10tiki yesterday we had company and today we are getting our nuts into storage for the couple of weeks Dan will be in bed and I'll be his nurse. I hope to get back to glazing really soon. I know the swap is getting closer. Your Honu carving is going to be really hard for you to give up, it looks great.

Thank you for the link. SM Bacon made a map for me that fits your description. Here it is.


tiki beat by marcus thorn thank you from North America.

I just got off the computer after a Geek Squad lesson and what a help. Right now I've found I can't keep TC remembering my password. I click the box but next time I go on it back to typing danlovestikis and the password. Anyone else having that problem?

Cheers, Wendy

Very cool Ms Pac-Man board! I am really excited to see how it turns out now...

I always type my password in everytime. Guess I am paranoid. But windows 8 should have an option to save all of your passwords, but I haven't ever tried it, so I don't know where to tell you to look. Possibly in the control panel?

dartharnie we were posting at the same time so I missed you until now. I LOVE the photos. It inspires me for the next round of clay work for you. Three to go.

lunavideogames the map helps so much. He's a super guy. I hope you meet him at the next DTB sale. He's not missed any of them. We hope to go as shoppers. Thank you for the help on passwords. I wish it would save my TC name but I have to type in both.

(: Wendy
