Geeze Wendy, better have your
paperwork in order if you're gonna take those down to Hukilau!


That picture gives off a plain of jars / Prometheus vibe.

GROG I never saw it until you painted it. I just may have to make one of those next Christmas. Thank you very much.

Kele all our thoughts started with the cave man. GROG's thoughts are precursors to all of ours.

Holler Waller the super carving comes soon. I'm glad you wished for this one. Do you like BumaBob for the bottom or BumBob? Whose family? Did you see a resemblance to Dan?

hang10tiki thank you, Holler Waller came up with a good idea.

Philot thank you for the article. I will not be selling at any events but I'll get the paperwork ready in case I have my home inspected. When will you post photos of the Temple of the Jaguar bowl settled into your collection?

Professor G great, after it is bisque fired I'll get back to you and everyone else for glaze choices.



Wish List #3 and the Severed Head.

I have #12 SH to remove from the mold today.

I've finished the basic bowl shape for 19TikiChef62. I need to smooth it more and to make a mold. Once I have a bowl mold I can alter the cast in many ways.

I worked on the ring. His design will have rivets. His bowl will be metal in color.


I started carving down the ring around the top.


This is how I made it for molding. Once I have a cast I can flare the lip out further making it more stylish. He wants it carved with tapa. Maybe inside and out. This bowl will have three Missionary's Downfall woman which I'm going to try to modify. But first up will be the mold.


I hope you all are having a wonderful Holiday. Wendy

Holler Waller your mugs almost ready to be carved.

Today is Mold Day. Dan is setting up the ice cold garage and I'm going out as soon as I post here.

I didn't work on the wish list yesterday instead I worked on fixing Sitting Bob now renamed by Dan as Beach Bum Bob. He's relaxing on the sand while sitting on his towel drinking from his coconut mug. We wish we were on a warm beach today.

I have never worked with paper clay but I thought this would be a good time. It doesn't shrink like regular clay and the tiki mug I'm working with is dry and has shrunk. I cut a slab.


I put down a baggie so it wouldn't stick to my table top. Under that is a board so I can lift and carry the mug.


I used a rolling pin to make it the right size and thickness. I cut the clay into the shape of the towel.



I plugged the hole in his bottom with more paper clay.


You can see a bump of clay has come through into the mug.


I used a wet paintbrush to smooth the paper clay.


I wet the clay and pressed him into it. If he doesn't stick this way I will stick him with glaze later.


I used grid sandpaper to make a towel weave.


I used the label scrapper to make a fringe.


The baggie makes it easy to lift corners and sides to add movement to the clay.




I still need to carve his finger and toe nails.


For now he joins the rest of the Family to dry.


Dan's ready for me it is time to mold 19TikiChef62's bowl.

Cheers, Wendy

Ha... It looks like beach bum farted and knocked the invisible bob on his @$$, sending his hat flying. All the while, dracula is looking on (and I can only assume he's laughing)

This might be my favorite in progress picture now!

MadDogMike he is so relaxed he's forgotten to finish his drink. I like what you have at the end of your posts.

Clay, the oldest and most divine art media;
"And now, from the clay of the ground, the Lord God formed man" Genesis 2:7


SandraDee Bob is very happy you like him. I've put you on the list for a severed head. We miss you.


tikiskip thanks for stopping by. I was just looking at your lamps. They are so creative and beautiful.

TikiAno Love Beach Blanket Bob-o! Another cute name.

LoriLovesTiki oh no, I hope he's not a bomb I've had so many things blow up in the kiln. Wish him good luck!

hang10tiki Bob thanks you for checking out all his belongings. I'm looking forward to making his towel multicolored.

dartharnie you inspire me to do some "set up" photos. This one was candid.

Philot has his Temple of the Jaguar bowl and he was so kind to send me these photos.
His cats checked out the box when it arrived.

Introducing Philot now holding his bowl. I am always grateful for photos. Thank you for sharing these.




Progress Report Wish List #3

I have 12 Severed Heads cast as of today.

Yesterday was a mess. Hopefully we have a mold made.

When we made the mold for the severed head GROG mentioned that he didn't make his molds as thick as we do. This time I decided to make it smaller.
I marked a piece of wood to the size I needed for a mold with an inch and 1/2 of plaster around the widest point.

Dan cut the board for me.

I marked the center and put down the first piece of clay for the mold.

Then I changed my mind after looking at this. I think bigger pieces last longer.

I started building the clay up one side.

I used a wet cloth to smooth it and to clean the edges sharper along the pot.

I built up the other side and pressed in some locks.

Once I had the box put together I added the snakes of clay to prevent leaks.

We mixed plaster and Dan started pouring it into the sides while I tapped it with the rubber mallet to get air bubbles out.

One last tap with the hammer was all it took to knock loose the clay snake and start gusher. I used old clay and it wasn't a sticky as new clay. Lesson learned. I had to take clay and stick my arm in the plaster and press it in place until the leak stopped.

You can see here how small the leaks were but boy did it gush out.

Now I removed clay partway down the sides. I left enough clay that I will have a bottom piece that goes from one side to the other side. That replaced the small round bottom I first made. I painted on mold soap three times wiping he excess away after each application dried.

Once the sides were firm I rasped the top to make it level. You can now see where the opening will be when we pour slip into the mold.

We wait 45 minutes after each pour before was do the next piece. So this time we worked on preparing slip. It always needs water added so now we buy half jugs to leave room to add it. I stick in my hand and mix it until I can tell it has the right amount. That's how I do the plaster too.

This was a very messy day.

Dan to the rescue while wearing his Frog Island Shirt from CY.


Now this mold will dry for at least a month. We have a fan blowing on it 24/7.

Today it a clay day which should be all fun and no huge mess. Cheers, Wendy
