A- 48
B- $.50 (this is important as a tax-time answer).
C- $20,000 (also, an important tax time answer).

Of course, my answers may not apply, depending on the Wendy/ Dan approach to filing taxes.

D- We all thank you for all of the time, work, and money you put into your creations. I hope your own "B" answer compensates you for all of the time you give to us here.

Hi marty1manparty I think you wanted to post a "other crafts" page to display your palm frond art and somehow got onto my page. I see this is your first post. To make your own choose New Topic. Write the title of your work and then start adding photos in the box like this one. To add photos click on Add Images To Your Post which is just below this box. I'd like to see your work so keep trying. Welcome.
---------------------

CONTEST: I keep excellent records for taxes. I don't want to live in a failed state so I pay what I owe. So keep it real. You may change/edit your guess up until the last minute. I enjoyed the jokes.

=====================
Progress Report:

We poured another head yesterday. Number 17 comes out of the mold today.

I spent the whole day mapping out the Mrs. Pac Man Bob's. Today I will start to carve out the backgrounds. I'm glad these are tiki mugs and not the real game.


I've carved out the inside of the barriers. Next I have to carve out all of the background around the dots and other playing pieces.


LoriLovesTiki time to faint again. Dan's been baking. We flip and bake longer our cookies so that they are snappy.


I hope more of you will enter the contest. It doesn't matter if you have won before. Each contest is brand new. You just have to pay the shipping to get your prize.

Cheers, Wendy

Progress Report Wish List #3.

The bowl mold has had the fan blowing inside it for days. It is still sopping wet.

I decided to open it up and have the fan keep going. However yesterday I fired and that warmed the room up and that will have helped more.


Every other day if these molds are dry we pour. Today is another pour day.


I had enough items dry to do a bisque fire.


I sanded and fine tuned each piece.


Bottom shelf.


Top shelf.


Each piece dries at a different rate. I fired Chippy's mug but not his hat. I fired two monsters but not the Mummy. It will be a while before I have another load ready to bisque.

I read on Tiki Sharks thread today that facebook is killing Tiki Central. I hope that is not true. Your posts help keep it alive. Thank you very much.

Cheers, Wendy

Cookies look good, I'd pay extra for a cookie in every mug I buy...

I think I saw that photo of the severed heads in a Hannibal Lecter movie....

All the mugs look sweeeeet...

After looking at the line up of the greenware/ pre-bisque guys, I realized I need to get lots more pieces from you and have a "family photo" photo shoot.

If you come down for the Bowlarama show at the Tonga Hut, make sure Dan bakes chocolate chip cookies. GROG love chocolate chip cookies.

First off my apologies for being late this morning. I just woke up. Dan said he was just about to check to see if I was breathing.

Contest Answers and winners:

Congratulations Men!

A. I fired up the kiln 46 times. I'm amazed that some of you came so very close. The winner is Philot at 47 off by only 1!

B. I earned $4,653. The winner is Loki Tiki who was off by $1,671.

C. I spent $6,525.57. The winner is Big Kahuna off by $1,064.43

I have all of your addresses and as soon as these are packaged I'll get back to you with the cost of shipping. I enjoyed watching the action. Thank you everyone for participating.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I need GROG as a manager because I'd love to earn a million a year making tikis. I must keep my prices low because very few people who order from me ask what it is going to cost. It may be because I don't make anyone take the art they ordered. If they don't want it (that hasn't happened yet) Dan would put it in his collection.

Progress Report Wish List #3:

I've been working on the Mrs. Pac Man Bobs. I use this tool the most to carve out the clay.


I use brushes of different sizes to wash out the carving lines.


One mug just started and one finished.


Today I have to mop and clean up the kitchen nook before I start the next project.


The three Mrs. Pac Man Bobs are done and ready to start drying today.


This will be a busy day. I have molds to open and a kiln to open. I wish you all a fun weekend.
cheers, Wendy





PS Grog I saw you posted while I was typing. You get me a million a year for my art and he'll bake you lots of chocolate chip cookies!

Congrats to the winners!

I'm still curious Wendy. How many pieces (mus & bowls) did you finish last year?

hang10tiki I should share the secret to these cookies. They are Toll House in a tub. Corn oil on a cookie sheet. Scoop them out of the bucket. Bake on one side for 14 minutes then flip and cook for 5 more. They are so good hot out of the oven. Save the left overs in a plastic bag to keep them crunchy.

LoriLovesTiki I counted the unique mugs on my Gallery page and that came to 66. I also made 40 Sacramento Crawl mugs and 30 Zombie Torch mugs with flames and 8 as regular mugs. I did finish off a bunch of things that had dried but I haven't sold them I've been using them for swaps and contests. So all total sold and not sold around 200 items.

Progress Report on Wish List #3:

Top shelf of the kiln.


It was so cold but I scrubbed each head inside and out. Then I rinsed them. They went on clean trays and into the house.


Bottom shelf of the kiln.


First out was Beach-bum Bob. He didn't stick to the towel and he developed a few more cracks. I'll have fun experimenting with glazes and patches to semi-fix him.


I used these two sponges to scrub the dust off. The rise water stayed clear so I could tell I was doing a good job.


When I lifted Bela Lugosi out of the kiln his arm came off. I have these two products to put it back on. These can be used to attach tikis to bowls. I hope it works well for an arm.


See these little places where the clay had pockets for air. That's all it took to pop off the arm.


All scrubbed and taken into the house.


Back to work. Cheers, Wendy
