Professor G I love those rocks and I'm thinking about your glazes. I want the tiki to look as if it was made from one of the rocks types that it sits on. White and Blue with Blue Eyes.

hang10tiki thank you so much for all your visits.

LoriLovesTiki I feel the same way when I open the kiln.

Psycho Tiki D <<< is the fellow who asked me to make the first crawl mug for Sacramento. I just kept on going after that and I've never stopped. Luv ya too Duane, Wendy

Progress Report Wish List #3

Glazing Glazing Glazing...

I started with the bowl for GROG's Tonga Hut Bowl Show.
Mine is Pele coming out of the volcano.


I covered it inside and out with red speckled glaze.


Then I used French Dimensions in black for the cooling lava.


Distant view.


I'm using one of Joniece Franks War Gods for the base.


I got a lot done on the insides of other mugs and the first coat on the outside of the Bumatay Bob.


For the glaze test Severed Head mugs I have used a black spotted one on the inside. Once these are done I'll ask everyone if the run should stick to the original design with a white interior.

A lot to do today. The kiln is cool and a load needs to be washed. We need to pour another Head and I need to glaze. Good thing I have Dan to help me.

Cheers, Wendy

Hold onto those test glazes! If they don't end up in Handsome Dan's collection, then in a year or two from now, you can ebay them and pay for all the glazes you bought last year!

Can't wait to see how the tests turn out! Looking forward to seeing everything else you're glazing too. Dig the goblet, and from what I've seen from different artists that are participating in that show, it's going to be pretty great. And there will be some really fantastic mugs/bowls there for those lucky enough to be able to go.

Holler Waller rot, mold, maybe tar like King Tut was covered in.

hang10tiki and freezing water to work in while the wind whipped past!

Hale Tiki Dan loves shopping at home. Yesterday he claimed Beach Bum Bob.


Progress Report Wish List #3

Oh No! I forgot to enlarge the holes for the two Bob lamps and the parts do not fit.

Dan tried to drill them larger but bisque fired clay is so hard it didn't work. What next, I do not know.


I unloaded the kiln. No problems everything was fine.


I washed everything in freezing water. Today it rains so I had to get this done.


Professor G I've glazed your Frankoma War God with rocks. Some rocks match the tan with blue specks. This is another glaze that is not supposed to move when fired.

Side view.


When parts are too close together you can glaze by just pouring it into the space and tilting the object.


Dan claims Bob for his own. He keeps saying he is soooo cute.


More glazing today. I'm working to fill the kiln before I fire. Hopefully tonight! Cheers, Wendy

Wow, they all look great, can't wait to see them all fired. I wasn't sure how to drill through bisque fired pieces, I thought maybe the right drill bit going really slow, or perhaps a very thin sanding block. I looked it up on Ceramic Arts Daily, and found this:

"Clean accurate holes can be cut using silicon carbide grit. I use number 80 which I originaly bought to make volcanic glazes. For the "drill" you need a length of brass or copper rod of the desired diameter. A drill press is needed as a hand held tool is not steady enough. Firmly mount the work on the drill press. The back of the work behind the drill contact point needs to be well supported ( I use a block of wood ) as the drilling pressure cause a break through as the hole gets deeper which results in a rough edge to the back of the hole. Make a small clay dam around the area to be drilled and add a couple of teaspoons full of water, to this add a 1/4 of a teaspoon full of grit. With the drill set at it's lowest speed GENTLY apply enough pressure to start the cutting action, you can tell when this happens as it causes a crunching sound. When the sound ceases slightly withdraw the drill which allows more grit and fresh water to fall into the hole, continue in this manner until the hole is drilled. Provided the water level is maintained there is no dust from this method as the water contains it. "

I'm not sure if this helps- I use a little stone sanding block, I assume one in the right shape (circular file), & w/ enough filing, would eventually get the hole wide. Dan may need a few more Beach Bum Bobs after all that work!

Thanks for all the pics! I'd also love to order a Sacramento Crawl mug- though unfortunately I won't be able to make it up there (though sounds like much fun!).

Hahahahaha. Of course he did. Despite his impressive collection, I don't think I've seen a Bob with arms and legs!

And just a suggestion on the holes. Diamond hole saws can be found cheap at HarborFreight and online. They'll cut through darn near anything, and might work for ceramic, since diamond blades are usually what's used for ceramic tile.

Good luck!

Excuse my ignorance, but what is a crawl mug?
The mind boggles. Does it come with a rope to hang around the neck, so when legless on pub crawls you don't lose your precious personal drinking vessel?

The God of War looks good. The God of War looks strong. The God of War (on his rocky promontory) looks confident.

This time, there will be success.

LoriLovesTiki you made Bob blush!

TikiAno I put you an the list for a crawl mug. Thank you for all the information. It goes to show that mistakes with ceramics are not all that forgiving. I'm not sure what I'll do next.

Hale Tiki I did a Suffering Bastard Bob for hang10Tiki that had arms and kind of legs. Thanks for the saw information and wish for good luck.

hang10tiki good idea.

Canvas each year tiki homes in our area are open and serving drinks and food according to a schedule. Last year it took 3 days and 404 miles to reach each home. It was so much fun. To commemorate the event I make a mug that has to do with some tiki place in our area. Unfortunately they have all closed down. So far I've done the Zombie Hut/Coral Reef combo mug, Tiki Bobs Sacramento and the Hawaiian Hut. This year will be a better Coral Reef mug because instead of the Mask I'm making one of their Tikis as a mug.

Professor G I'm so glad you are feeling it. I am too. The blue spots hardly show on the photo but the glaze chart says they will be a good blue after firing.


Progress Report Wish List #3.

I've decorated the mugs I've made for my great niece and great nephew. I used French Dimensions. I hope it doesn't run during firing. The bowls I made for them had this product used on a flat surface not a side.


Since I'm doing a Mrs. Pac man for the same person getting this Pac Man I decided to repaint it with the same colors. It's more of a touch up.


Assembly line time. I painted around the faces first.

Then the bodies. This was done three times.


Now I've started the first glaze test on a Severed Head. I'm still taking orders. See page one of this thread if your not sure if your name is on the list.


At the end of the day my table looked like this. I still need to put clear glaze on all the Bob faces when they are done and also the teeth on the Frankoma statue.


Another day of glazing ahead.

Thank you for all the notes, I treasure them, Wendy
