That's it! I'm sending you a better way of getting the bubbles out.
You don't have to use it, but I'm not taking no for an answer!

Hale Tiki, if it is mechanical I'd drown it in wet plaster.

MadDogMike oh no a senior moment I can't remember what you wrote. But I bet it was nice.



Progress Report:

19TikiChef62's bowl mold is in my kiln shed drying. We rotate it to a different side once a day.


Holler Waller your Tapa BumaBob is finished being sculpted. Now you have a set of two. I'll do my best to also match the glazes. Here are the photos.
Attaching the Bumatay removes a lot of the detail.


So once the mug is leather hard I re-carve the Bumatay. It has a lot of surfaces.


I'm matching Holler Waller's last mug so I printed a photo to copy. I started with the rings.


Then I reproduced the tapa design on all the side.






Now he is off to the dining room table to dry with all his friends.

Back to my clay day, Wendy

Wendy,

I can't beleive how BIG the temple of the jaguar bowl is! I knew it was large but when I saw it in Philot's hands I was shocked. When it was photographed alone I didn't have idea of its scale. Amazingly large, seriously!


Lori

Thanks for all the mold-making step by steps. Your original one (along w/ Babalu's) are getting me excited to get into mold-making myself (soon). In any case, I stopped in at my local library, and did a double-take. Wendy, you didn't tell me you were making a trip down to San Diego- and with a new Bob?



Look forward to seeing you, and love all the new pieces!

Holler Waller there is a Buma on the back of YOUR Bob mug and its all your fault.

LoriLovesTiki the Temple of the Jaguar bowl was the largest thing I've ever made. Thank you for noticing. I had to move slowly and think "be careful" to never do anything to crack it. In the beginning Dan and I would have to lift it together to keep the weight of the jaguars from bending the bowl. Working clay is so enjoyable and fulfilling wishes gives me great joy.

Tiki Ano another Bob idea!!!

hang10tiki thanks for another smile.

Progress Report:

I have number 14 Severed Head in the mold waiting to come out.

I've been working on a secret project during this month and I've almost finished the sculpt. I can't show it until later this year so I'm so happy that I received a photo yesterday that I can share instead. That's my Zombie Torch that Holler Waller is sipping from.





May you all have a day filled with smiles, Wendy

Yesterday was a day of cleaning tikis after opening the molds. Today we pour again.

Another Frankoma War God bowl, this one is for Dan. It keeps him working.

After cleaning off the mold lines I added a thick (air bubble free) layer of sticky clay (clay mixed with slip).

I cleaned the bowl inside and out and cut a hole so air can escape when I press the bowl on top of the tiki.

Once on top I start at the bowl side and press towards the center.

I keep pulling clay to the center and then I smooth it. Once this is leather hard I can remove most of this or carve it into a design.

I will use a small paint brush to smooth the sticky clay under the bowl.

I put a bag over him so that all the clay can slowly dry. Right now the parts are not equal in how much water they contain. It's important to let them equalize or they will crack.


Professor G's War God and rocky platform are dry. Today I removed clay until there was a space wide enough for the glaze on the tiki and the glaze on the rocks. This gap will be filled by those layers.


Poor Dan after this I took him for his annual blood test. They poked him in his left anticubital fossa and then his left hand and then the guy finally got it in his right anticubital fossa. I took him to lunch and then gave him a get well tiki when we got home.


It's Saturday. Another fun clay day. Cheers, Wendy

The war god on his rocky promontory looks nice, Wendy. I love how you keep the classic Tiki designs contemporary and fun.

Wendy, I love watching you work!
Tell Dan that I can appreciate his pain. I have veins that "roll" & they almost always have to use a butterfly needle on my hand for blood draws.

Like Lori, I was surprised when I saw the size of the Bowl of the Jaguar Temple - it's
Bumatay Bob is awesome and Greg's rocky perch is coming along beautifully.
Tell Dan I feel his pain! Turns out I'm allergic to needles, they induce tachycardia, hypotension, malaise, diaphoresis, and even syncope in me

It would be a lot easier to draw blood if Dan would just sit up straight.
