Thank you hang10tiki and HBTiki.

Today I spent the morning go over future projects. Some are harder than the Temple of the Jaguar bowl. I should have lots to share over the next few months.

I still need to open the molds today. We have poured number 8 of the Severed Heads. Now we are getting somewhere.

Here's the update on dartharnies The Mummy.

I'm still working on the base of the head. When it is done then the gauze and wrinkles will be added. This is the way it looked when I started today.

This is how it ended up.

Start.

Ended for the day.


Out in the cold doing the clean up. I'm so lucky he'll work for tikis. Without him I don't think I could do so many projects.


Back to work and loving it, Wendy

Is it just me or does he look like Lyndon B Johnson, especially the profile?

Great work as usual Wendy

MadDogMike maybe but now he has completely changed parties.

TikiAno its wonderful to have the photos appreciated.

Holler Waller no more waiting except like the rest of us. The wrinkles they will come soon enough.

hang10tiki I'll tell Dan.


Progress Report on Wish List #3

dartharnies Mummy just needs wrinkles when he dries.

It was time to wrap up the mummy. I used a roller to smooth the edge of a slab of clay.

Using my label scraper I cut a strip.

When I had a whole bunch of them I dipped one side into some slip, used as glue, and applied them to the statue.

Since he is wrapped it fabric I used gauze to press in some texture to each strip of clay.

He has arms!

His head has strips added.

His ears have been carved.

The back of the head will be a mix of shin and fabric.

More fabric on the side.


This is how he looked when I stopped.










He looks like such a nice guy right now. I hope the sever wrinkling will make him scary. Wendy

And why, you ask, does the mummy look like a nice guy? It's because you can't be unhappy on this thread.

dartharnie after a long talk with the Mummy he said it was OK to do major changes to that satisfied expression. Now he no longer looks happy to be the Mummy.

Hale Tiki in the end I destroyed the gauze pressings with a lot more carving.

hang10tiki cute!

Babalu I've missed you. I'll have to check to see if you posted photos of the Bunny Stack glazed. I've never done anything that huge. You are so brave.

Professor G we like being a happy place. Guess what 3rd times is going to be the charm. I'm trying again.


Progress Report Wish List 3 and the Severed Heads

This is one of Notch's severed heads. As an artist proof he did an extra good job of glazing it. I will work to make all of them in the run as good as this one.


Years ago I sculpted a bowl but I never got around to making a mold. It is shown in this photo. It is sculpted with Romo Clay #3. A Very hard clay. I bought a wax pot and I melt the clay in it and then spread it for sculpting.


19TikiChef62's wish is for a cannibal or witches pot with 3 of the topless Missionary Downfall women with tattoos. So now I've started to add clay to form a pot in the shape he desires.


Spreading the hot clay.


When you make a mold you need an opening in which to pore the slip. I just make that a part of the sculpt. So first I melted the bottom.


Then I stuck it on the pot.


I haven't fine tuned the shape yet and there is a pot lip yet to add but I have a good start.



For Professor G I am trying a third time to make the War God statue in white with blue specks. He also wanted it to have a rocky base which I'm starting here for the first time. I figured out the size.


Next I've built the platform that the WG sits on. Next I'll form the rocks and surround the WG.


I'm also working on the Mummy's wrinkles. I'll have photos tomorrow morning.

Cheers, Wendy

The Wendy and Dan show continues. amazing stuff! Whether it's a happy, scary, bewildered, or charming Mummy, it's amazing to watch him/it come together. Wowzers. Love the gauze use for texturing. The back looks amazing, love all of the details. All of the comments in this thread continue to be great fun to read... good times.

Wow, that's a lot of work rolled up in one day
Don't forget to take time out to eat so you can keep up your strength...

Thanks (as always) for the update pics
