Wendy,
Those Ms Pac-Man mugs are coming along great! Exciting to see. I hope that the severed head glaze comes out looking really good. I just saw my first original "in the flesh" at Gecko's yesterday. He was really nice and I got to see some of your art there and at La Mariana. Very cool!

Sorry about my spelling, difficult to write on my phone

lunavideogames I hope to finish glazing this kiln load today or tomorrow. I'm looking forward to finishing the first head.

Robb Hamel you are so kind. SM Bacon designed the Pac Man mugs. I like wishes to come true and my friends have lots of ideas that are fun and challenging to make. Both your new tiki and new building black velvets inspire me.


Progress Report Wish List #3

I started my day by adding clear glaze layers on Professor G's statue.


Next were the three Mrs. Pac Man mugs. I did the faces three layers per face. Then I moved on to the pink bars.


To keep the dots from running I would paint them on one side of each mug then turn and do them on another side for each one. I only got one layer for each dot completed yesterday.


Today I will do 2 more layers on the dots and then paint all of the red strips 3 times each along with the eyes. In the background of this photo you can see that I finished Beach Bum Bob and the Bumatay Bob for Holler Waller aka Tiki Beeki.


I hope to finish the first Severed Head glaze test today. I finished the skin yesterday. I better go pour another head.

Cheers, Wendy

GROG need you to come glaze GROG' ceramics. GROG hate glazing. Not too fond of cleaning up greenware either, but really enjoy the sculpting part.

Looking good Wendy, keep up the great work. Dan, bake her some more cookies, she going to need a good reward.

Yippee glazes...I really like the Mrs. Pacmans...Again it's probably the primary colors, but maybe it's the hours and quarters dad let me have at the arcade when I brought home A's on my report cards as a kid

You are so talented Wendy! And such a hard worker, you seem to get so much done. I am really excited to see the test glazes on the new Severed Head mugs! It's a cold, rainy day here in So Cal, perfect for hot out of the oven cookies.

I can't wait for you to load the kiln for a glaze fire! This batch is going to be amazingly good, I can feel it.

GROG Dan did as you said and baked cookies. I finished glazing a load, fired the kiln and went to work a heads that have been stacking up. Thank you.

dartharnie I got a quarter an A too. I need your color choices it is time for the monster trio to be glazed.

Dawee Tiki the kiln will be cooling down and I'll be able to post photos Sunday morning of the first severed head. Photos below.

LoriLovesTiki me too. There is a lot of variety in this load.

Progress Report Wish List #3...now we are getting somewhere

I didn't start my day well. I unscrewed the cap and then I shook the jar.




It was worse than it looked. I had to take another shower and then mop the floor and clean table.
I started with the mouth and teeth. The tongue got one more layer than the rest to make it darker.


To make that messy black on the face I added glaze and then smeared it around with water on a paint brush.


The hair is black, pink and blue. The original mugs had red cold paint (enamel) added for the blood. This part comes off if the mug is used a lot or washed in hot water. I decided to use glaze and to see how that looks. Then it is permanent. If I should stick with how the vintage one was done let me know. I have the enamel that they used so I can do it their way too.


I didn't have a self glazing under-glaze for white so after using it I had to put a clear glaze over it.


This is how many different glazes and how many layers I used for this one head.


Mr. Pac Man and his two wives.


I painted the red trim on each mug three times.


Done and drying. Sometimes the clear glaze needs to be done a second time. I won't know until they come out of the kiln.


It was very windy yesterday so I used it to dry the mugs so I could fire them.


Bottom shelf.


Top shelf.


That's all folks! Wendy

Oh GROG if only I were a kiln. I went to check on it this morning and a warning buzzer was going off. Error message E---d.
It means the zones were not firing correctly. I called for a repair and both workers had called in ill on the same day. So now I can't get a repair scheduled until Monday.

I'm going to set it up again and see if it was just a glitch. So tonight I'll try once more. My last repair was in November. What a bummer.

): Wendy

That is a bummer. Sorry to hear that Wendy. The head looks amazing. I'm so excited. I can't wait to see it!!!

Also, I say no to the cold glaze. It does come off, and I think that it'd be better for it to be permanent. Guess it depends on how it looks fired, but personally I'd rather have it as a glaze. It'll help to make it more your own too. Just my 2 cents.
