WaikikianMoeKele ha ha ha.

Holler Waller see below. I'm so happy that Sitting Bob has fans.

tigertail777 good to have you here again.

Progress Report Wish List #3 2013

Fist off I am showing dartharnie his prize for being the 2500 post on my thread. I like having contests that no one knows are in progress.

A Honu necklace made from a sculpt I did for the resin chunk lamps by Roge.


To make the Invisible Man I used a Bob and the photos that dartharnie sent to me. This is for him.


I first built the mans face.


I covered the face with strips of "cloth" leaving a space for air to the nose and did the body with a coast and ascot.


Side view.


I cast a sombrero to convert into the hat.


Converted.


I cut the top of Bob's head off and used the ring of clay(made smaller) on the bottom of the hat. This slips inside of the mug to hold the hat on the mug.


There is a layer of plastic wrap between the hat and mug. It fits!


Lenses added to the goggles.


Cheers, Wendy

Aloha Wendy!

I did get it! On New Year's Eve, right as I was heading out the door to get another tattoo. I didn't expect it to be that big! So, I promptly strung it up with the appropriate cord, hung it around my neck, and wore it for the rest of the day. I took a picture on my front porch before leaving:




It's huge, but I love it! Thank you so very, very much. By the way, someone was selling the resin versions of these at Tiki Oasis, along with some of your mugs, who was that? The person had a table with a TON of mugs. Also, are the resin ones smaller, or is my memory just bad?

It's so cool, and an excellent addition to my growing pendant collection from awesome tiki artists!

I can't wait to see the first glazed Shrunken head mug. Mannnnnnn is it going to be cool. If you need a motor to get rid of bubbles, I can send one your way if you'd like. I've made quite a few here at work for our mold room, and can whip one up real quick for you. Let me know!

(So glad the kids liked their bowls!)

Oh! Also, she loved the puffer =) I think they may both end up being hers, instead of a his and hers, because she loved them both!

We'll wear them to the Tiki Tuesday I host next Tuesday. I'll post pictures!

Thank you for the Turtle. My littlest one has already claimed as her own. I'm banking on her forgetting about it by the time it arrives, but I think you've made two of us very happy. (though I'm a little sad there was no "butt Crack" crack contest )

Invisible Bob is Fantastic. Love the clothes and the hat. I am looking forward to seeing the texture and glazes.

Thank you!

Also, the two new Bob's are looking great!
The Cocobut(t) Bob is wonderfully silly.

Hale Tiki I love the photo. The Moai can also be hung on the wall. There is a thread on TC for tiki tattoos in case you have any to add to that thread. The fellow with all the resin versions is Mahalo Tiki who has an ad as a header on TC. I am making Ren Clark Severed Heads but now you've given me the idea to make a few also as shrunken heads in the future. Thank you! I was super happy the kids liked their bowls too. I still have the bowl I won for a dime at the state fair when I was a kid. My sister won one for a nickel 12 years before and she has her bowl too.

Hale Tiki I'll be really happy to have photos of your puffers on your tiki Tuesday out. Very cool.

zerostreet I've been admiring your latest paintings. Thank you always for stopping by here.

dartharnie sending me another Invisible Man photo changed the whole thing. Check it out and see if you approve.

Hale Tiki I could never have guessed that I would spend so much time with Bob. Good thing Dan approves.

WestADad I'm so glad you have returned. Welcome back. I have 11 Bob's to customize to finish this wish list and also a bowl and signature mug. I'll have a lot to show and I'm moving faster because of all the experience I've gained.

Yesterday I put away a bunch of molds that I've finished with and brought out others.


We poured the third severed head and started pouring for 19TikiChef62's Missionary's Downfall (3) women with tattoos bowl. I may have enough poured to finish the wish list soon. Then it will be a severed head every other day.


OK so Dan tells me the Invisible Man looks like Kermet the Frog. It does dang it.


dartharnie sends me a way better photo to work with so I start the transformation.


I work to make more strips of cloth covering the face and completely change the goggles to sunglasses.


I send this photo off to dartharnie and I think he sees that the bowler hat looks more like a cowboy hat so I need to change that too.


This morning when I got up I went down and increased the size of the sunglasses. Here the right lens is done.


To add clay I use a paint brush and put some slip in place as glue. Then I add the clay.


I changed the brim on the hat and then I needed to make the top have less of an angle. So again I added clay.


The new sculpt is so much better than Kermet. Sorry Kermet. I'm happy now I'll wait to hear from dartharnie.










To fulfill wishes I need to re-work pieces often. I'm learning how with all of you. Thank you, Wendy






hang10tiki I need to get back to your carving thread to see what you decided to do to the second pole. I still vote for Bobette.

WaikikianMoeKele you can't see him. You can only see the cloth wrapped around him and his clothing. With his hat off the top of his head doesn't show but we know its there to keep his hat on!!!

TikiAno check him out he looks very different now.

He was much more handsome than Kermit-The-Frog, but I like the improvements

Wendy, I'm reminded of how my then 5 yo daughter (Stacey is now 37. married & has an almost 2 month old son, in 2 days) explained to me that there is a DISTINCT difference between an invisible friend and an imaginary friend. She had invisible twin friends as well as an invisible elephant.

hang10tiki dartharnie comes up with these projects. I have two more on the Wish List to make for him. They are fun to do.

MadDogMike thanks Mike its always worth the work to get it right. The last photo he sent made a huge difference in how I did the work.

WaikikianMoeKele your daughter had a wonderful imagination to separate the two. I never had either and wished that I did. I just made things in clay.


Progress Report:

I opened the molds yesterday and cleaned up the casts. Now I'm down to just pouring the Missionary Downfall women (for 10Tiki Chef62) and the Severed Head. This was head number 3. The Frankoma War God is for Professor G. I will try a third time to get his white with blue spots statue done.


Yesterday we went to Alpha Fired Arts the best supply store in the Sacramento area. They have everything for ceramics. They also sell on-line.
While Dan got the gallon jars filled back up with slip I picked out glaze for the Severed Heads and other projects. I'm a glaze junkie. This shopping spree was my Christmas gift from Dan.

What I bought except for 20 gallon jars half filled with slip. We only half fill them so I can add water to make them the right consistency for pouring. If I don't add water all of the casts end up with slip that will not pour out.


When we got home we couldn't unload the car because I had no place to put anything. So Dan consented and we put up a shelf that we've had waiting since September. It was fast and easy. I moved some of my glaze test strips and we put up the brackets.


My job was to mark where and Dan drilled. Then we put the brackets in place and he screwed them in. All four in place.


Then I marked the shelf. We took it outside and he drilled the holes.


Back in Place. HI THERE!


The back edge of the shelf is sitting on quarter inch plywood for my glaze strips. This shelf is sturdy and will hold a lot.


I also had two small shelves to install. One on top of the other and one screw did the job. I moved glaze over here and now I have anther shelf I can fill with what I bought yesterday. The numbers on the containers correspond to the glaze strip tests on the wall.


I love art supplies. I wish Alpha was in my backyard.

I have errands today. If I have time I'll start another project later this afternoon. Thank you always for the visit and comments, Wendy
