TikiAno thank you so much for the hot chocolate. It was fun to open an extra gift. I hope to get the sign to LiddleLola soon. She lives 3 miles from us. It was the trick I showed on this thread that made the letters carve out just right.

GROG he still has his mustache you just keep photo-shopping it out to fool us all.

hang10tiki with fans/friends like you the show must go on and on and on!!!

Sandra Dee you are on Oahu? Are you visiting Gecko and La Marianna? I'll pass on the birthday wish to Dan.


Progress Report Wish List #3

I did the rest of the three layers on Chippy's mug and let it dry.

This is the picture that a friend had drawn for him. I copied it for the mug.

I used this photo for the colors. I will use enamel to do the hat badge after it fires.

I use Google or Internet Explorer and then images for different subjects and then print the photos as helpers.

I set up the MadDogMike photographic studio but I only got one more done. This is called Woman On the Rocks. Dan has claimed her as a birthday present for himself.


Fix your clocks and hour forward. Oh no less time to work on tikis. I better get going, Wendy

Chippy thank you that's why I do Wish Lists. I love reading comments like yours.

hang10tiki Hubba hubba was the comment I was looking for, you hit it just right. Dan spotted a bunny yesterday. It wasn't a Playboy bunny just a really cute one. Turns out it wasn't lost. The convalescent hospital has 10 on its grounds that it feeds. We saw a spotted one too. Now we are always going to walk down this street to look for bunny's.

I gave Dan another birthday present. One of Swizzles Bob-O-Mugs. Excellent work.


Progress Report Wish List #3

These are Bob torches to be if I can pull it off.

The faces have dried overnight and now they will be glazed green today.


Chippy's mug and hat are already glazed green and just waiting to be fired.


Mat the Cat's mug is finished unless he wants a SF on the button on the hat.




This is the name of his tiki lounge. All glaze no enamel.


After I take photos I study them for defects. I spotted what looked like a crack in the glaze at the bottom right.


I took a flash photo and it showed up more. So today I will attempt to pull the glaze loose. No matter what I will re-glaze this area to make this go away. Hang in there dartharnie, I've got to get it right!


That's it for today. I've more work to do. Cheers, Wendy

Matt's mug looks fantastic. I love the hat, and you did a fantastic job of the flowers on the back.

Dan: I get the same way when I see a squirrel. When I lived in DC the squirrels were so used to people that you could get right next to them, and they wouldn't care.

I know. He is awesome.

I am so stoked about this now. Getting more anxious by the day.

But it's all good.

Wendy, I just love watching you create these works of art! If it's not an artist's trade secret, could you share with us what you use to cold paint these ceramic pieces? Type of paint, recommended brand(s), best finishes to use (gloss, satin, flat, etc.) and best curing method (I think you said you bake it). I've always wondered the best paint to use for cold painting. Thanks!

Wow, Chippy Bob and Mat the Cat's mug look super duper. I'm excited to see how the torches come out. Are they open on top for lamp oil? Great idea (Bob-o-lanterns?)

Wendy, yes, I remember reading the description of how you trace out the letters- I'm just impressed at how well you're able to do this. Perhaps I need to get the same tool you use, but still, I'm sure my attempts are not quite there yet.

Hope you enjoy the Hot Chocolate- please let me know how you like it. The directions on the bag work well- if you have an immersion/ stick blender, that mixes it up quickly and evenly.

I do agree w/ Jon, Wahine Wahubba hubba.

Hale Tiki I can tell you are an artist, the flowers were the hardest part.

dartharnie you cutie, what did you say about 14 year old boys?

Chippy oh no that's grey/brown not green.

LoriLovesTiki I think you made Chippy's and my day.

Chippy ceramics are a very slow art form.

Dawee Tiki I only use Liquitex Glossies. They are found on the Dick Blick web page. The red is identical to the red used on vintage tikis for tongues and skirts. Paint, wait 24 hours and bake at 325 for 45 minutes. Just like with the old mugs you must not wash in hot water or scrub.

Tomorrow I'm buying more glaze for the run of 30 Severed Heads. Maybe in 1.5 weeks I'll start working on those non-stop. Having watchers keeps me working!

TikiAno I'm making the Bobs torches by putting a flicker light bulb on top. It's all the wiring that's hard. I couldn't find the parts I wanted so I'll just work something out.

Are you impressed just like the lettering? Ha Ha. I see hot chocolate in our futures.

The woman are built to impress.

Progress Report Wish List #3

I'm getting out the ball and chain today to make sure I get a lot done.

MP requested a satin finish on a Severed Head. It is done but he can't have it until the run is released. This was one of the extra heads I'd poured for AP's


I added clay inside all of the chins on the severed heads to make them sturdier. When I glazed MP's mug I could see a separation between the cast and the added clay. I will never move but I wanted to fill it and re-glaze anyway.


After the product dried I added more glaze and I'll fire it again.


The torches have joined the group ready to fire.


I worked on the glaze problem with dartharnies Bela Lugosi. I sanded the whole cape. Then a ran a wire brush over it. Once I had all the problem areas identified I worked to pop loose any glaze I could with a dental instrument.

Surprise some came loose at the shoulders.

Then I scrubbed these areas with a rough pad and then I glazed them. 3 layers were there was no glaze and one over the whole cape like glue.


I added gold ceramic paint to the sunglasses and ascot. The lens are now almost black.

Just checking he is still invisible!


I better get working or I won't have photos for tomorrow. Thank you for all the wonderful comments. You've given me energy for the day. Cheers, Wendy

Progress Report Wish List #3

dartharnie wanted me to share these photos that I had sent to him.







I finally got back to the four severed heads that I had altered and did some fine tuning.

I sanded the bug-eyed long tongue one in the back and moved on to the shrunken head version adding many wrinkles.


I turned the heads for a different view.


Next I carved the Tapa Snake with his designs on his skin.






The last head was easier. I've always wondered what it would look like with the tongue cut out. Now it can be carried this way and the finger looks like a tongue.


Four variations drying and soon into the kiln.


Guess what birthday bowl took the finished Maori version...

and the Hubbard Hubba Girl on the Rocks?

Maybe telling him we would celebrate his birthday for the whole month is going to cost me. Ah he's worth it.

Thank you for the visit, Wendy
