TikiAno thank you I hope we can keep our ratings up.

hang10tiki we are eating enough to keep us working. Yesterday I was really bad. I had cheese puffs, chocolate chip cookies and ice cream. But I got a lot done and here's the show!

Progress Report on Wish List #3

For dartharnies Mummy I went back to a different photo and changed the eyes.


Next I added a lot of "folds" to the fabric wrap.


Then I worked on his wrinkled skin.






I reshaped his nose to match Boris Karloff's.


Now it is up to dartharnie to tell me if he's what he wished for.


It is time to work more clay! Wendy

The Mummy looks AMAZINGLY like Boris Karloff!
It kind of sends shivers down my spine. I expect him to open his eyes at any moment!

I'm looking forward to the new attempt, Wendy. I'm sending positive thoughts with my eyes crossed and my fingers closed. Wait . . . switch that.

I started today off by accidentally erasing all the photos I took yesterday. I was so relieved to find them on the back up hard drive. It's the first time I've had one (in the past I put photos on CD's to save them). It worked and I retrieved all my photos. Whew!


LoriLovesTiki nailed him? Isn't there a monster with nails? There were many eyes to choose from I'm glad you like these, me too.

WaikikianMoeKele dartharnie agrees with you and has OK'd this one to dry. Thank you.

hang10tiki isn't there a dark alley monster? Doing these for dartharnie has been fun.

Professor G maybe failing twice will work out best because now I'm doing the rocky base you wished for at the same time. See below.


Progress on the Wish List #3 and the Severed Heads

This is how my pouring table looks this morning. Head #10 is in the mold. I've also poured everything for the rest of the Wish List. Putting the things in Baggies with a wet paper towel has kept them from drying out. All the bags on the top two selves have Wish List projects waiting to be made.



On and off yesterday I would melt clay and work on the pot for 19TikiChef62.

It needs a lot more smoothing but it is almost ready for the lip.



Professor G asked for a rocky base to support the War God ( which can be removed).
I finished it if he says he approves of what I've done here.

Each rock is hollow with a way for air to escape once placed on the base.


Once a rock is in place I would cut the base and make it look like part of that rock.


I finished all the rocks up to the edge of the platform.


I put the War God in place and built rocks up around him.








It's time to open those molds. Cheers, Wendy

The mummy is looking great! Very good idea on the gauze.

10 severed heads already. Hope that they are all drying well. So looks like they will be a pretty limited run. How many do you think that you will make?

Wendy, I can't wait to see the Mummy's Day card. It looks great- you're clearly very wrapped up in your work. Were you listtening to a lot of wrap music for inspiration while making him?
....
........
......... crickets. Aw, jeez.

Don't hate. Wait til I start making rock jokes next.... okay, back to work. (er, sorry).

The mummy does look great and I can't wait to see all 4 lined up and on display.

I have a question about the rock base. Is there any worry of the statue and base drying at a different speed and possibly not fitting together later. I assume you've left buffer space between the two and aren't expecting them to be a tight fit (this may not be a good assumption)

....However, I would really appreciate more details about what may or will happen? I'm very curious.

Thank you. I am so excited to watch the thread and the mail soon (i know I'm jumping the gun, but I'm all giddy)

lunavideogames I'm glad you like the Mummy. I haven't decided on the number for the Severed Head yet. Right now my goal is to pour as many as I can while I finish off the Wish List #3 projects. When they are done I'll see how far I've gotten with the casts of the head.

I'm ready for those rock jokes. Good job on the Mummy jokes, I enjoyed them.

hang10tiki the rock base was Professor G's idea and it was fun to make so far.

Progress Report:

Step by step I'm doing the bowl for 19TikiChef62. I smoothed the bowl and added clay to round the top.


I marked where the next part would be added.


Hot messy clay stuck in place.


I smoothed it out and let it harden. Half way up this new ring of clay I will make the lip that angles out.


10 severed heads drying on my dining room table.


dartharnie's Mummy, Bela Lugosi and the Invisible Man all together for a family photo.


I wish you all a joyful weekend, Wendy

hang10tiki I'm hoping that when dartharnie has all five together that he'll post photos. It's been fun doing these. Now it is back to tiki time. I wrote you another note below.

Progress Report Wish List #3

Every day I work on 19TikiChef62's pot. I forgot to mention that heating this Romo clay gives off a vapor. I always wear a mask and hope its working.
I've done the body and the ring and now I'm working on the lip which is the last part.

Half way up the top ring I built up a second wider ring.


I turned the pot upside down and began to build it larger.


All the way around.


Then back over to do the top again. Since this is to be molded and not fired air pockets don't matter as long as they don't show.


I've started to smooth it again.


This is where I left off for the day. I will be trimming off clay so that this lip slopes from the top edge down to the ring. (hang10 it didn't flip.)




I've started a new mug for Holler Waller. He already has the Tapa Turtle Bob and now he's getting a Bumatay with Fins Bob. It's easy to cut away the excess clay with this pointer tool.


The cast of the Bumatay is flat and the Bob mug is curved. (Note to hang10tiki. I waited to rotate this image until it was in the picture file. It didn't flip back when loading it here, just like the one above)


Since the mug is too soft to press on I used a bottle to round the Bumatay's back.


I added sticky clay made with clay and slip mixed. Note the v shaped area at the chin. I cut this wedge out so air can escape during firing.


I pressed it in place.


I added clay around the sides and smoothed it.


Now it will sit and firm up and then I'll Super Carve it a few days from now. I'll also carve more detail into the Bumatay head.



Thanks for following my art work. You keep it fun for me. Cheers, Wendy
