Yes MadDog Cheese puffs and the extra healthy dark chocolate with almonds.

I put the fan on the mold for 24 hours. The pieces are so cold I couldn't tell if they are dry.


This is a test run. Dan put on the straps.


This is the very first pour so we had no idea if it would leak. So to start we poured in a half cup of glaze. Then Dan turned the mold on different sides running the glaze into all the seam lines. This is a way to plug holes.


Then he poured in the slip while I pounded the sides to remove air bubbles. NO LEAKS!


Clear to the top. Since this is the first pour I left the slip sit inside for 1 1/2 hours.


Then we slowly poured out the remaining liquid slip.


It was turned upside down to dry out over night.


Dan's not just good at mopping he scoops a wonderful cookie. We like them crunchy so half way through I flip them and continue baking. Super crunchy.


Tomorrow we'll see if the mold works and the Ren Clark severed heads are a go. Cheers, Wendy

Those cookies look like puffer fish...

Aloha Wendy... Here's a pic of my wife Tanya with our cat Grandpa and her new Tiki Bob with the Grandpa lid. It came out awesome and Tanya loved it.


Mahalo and Happy Holidays!

Hi Woody thank you so much for the photo. You did a great job. I know my cat always looks away when she sees the camera. I added your name to the severed head list.

Progress Report for the Severed Head:

I opened the mold. Success!

The cast came out of the mold easily and had all the detail.


I removed the sides first.


Using my favorite label remover I cut off the excess clay from the top.


I ran the mold lines through areas that were without detail.


I used the label scrapper and a wet paper towel to remove the mold lines.


To prevent an air pocket at the chin I had kept it open now I added clay to build it back.


Now the head looks like the original from the top. That small piece of clay on the bottom will have to be removed.


I lifted it from the mold and looked at the bottom. It needs to be cleaned but for now its fine.


I didn't yet clean up the bottom edge. It needs to firm up over night.


This first sculpt after 1 1/2 hours was not as thick as I would like it to be. That means the mold was still not dry enough. I've put a fan on it 24 hours a day to help.


I'm still taking orders for these heads. $125 each plus shipping. The list is on page one of this thread.


Cheers, Wendy

I've stayed away from the thread for a few days so that I didn't see what I won. Didn't want to ruin the surprise. I haven't gone through the pages yet, but I figured it was safe to look at the last page.

Holy carp! I love the Ren Clark mug. I'm super excited! It looks awesome. AWE-some.

To Wendy, Dan, and all my fellow TC'ers that read this thread: May 2013 be even greater for you than 2012. See you in the New Year.

hang10tiki thank you very much.

MadDogMike thank you from one mold maker to another.

dartharnie Dan wants two and I want one but what I want most is to get started on your next mug, I'm so close.

Hale Tiki has your prize arrived yet? Did you give your lady the puffer necklace. I would love some photos posted here. That would get 2013 off to a good start.

Holler Waller I'll do my best, thank you.

Atomic Tiki Punk I'll keep trying!

WaikikianMoeKele (ooh, yuck, argh, rech, etc.) and historic.

Hi Friends, yesterday we had a super fun visit from Loki Tiki (Jeffery) and his wife Lori and kids Jackie and London. We took them on our very organized home tour.

In the Buzzy Bedroom.


In Dan's man cave in the garage.


I thought I had this problem fixed but here we go again. In the tiki jungle room.


Jackie in the jungle room.


Loki Tiki examining mugs.



I did clean up the bottom of the first severed head but the rest of the day was just having fun with this beautiful family.



Happy New Years Eve. Please be safe.

It's going to be so fun to have 2013 on my art from tomorrow on. Cheers, Wendy and Dan

It wouldn't be too hard to make a
vibratory table / tray / platform to shake the bubbles out.
Just a board, something with a motor screwed to the board, and optionally an offset cam (like in a pager vibrator) on the motor shaft.
Get your minds out of the gutter, you know who I'm talking to.
