You guys are totally cool & current!

I love the Grog photoshop. Sooo great.

I have an Asian living room too. I do not have an Egyptian bedroom though. Emily doesn't like my Egyptian stuff enough I guess, but I am going to bring the idea up with her anyway. Luckily I haven't let her throw out my Egyptian statues yet. I thought I might have to put them in the garden for awhile. But I think it is cool to have different themes for different rooms.

I really like how you showed how you use a picture to help. I have trouble making or drawing things out of my head - I'm not a real artist - but I am good at copying things I can see. This really helps! I will use this technique when I carve some concrete tikis for my backyard.

Funny what you said about the backyard, with us it's the opposite! All our tiki stuff is either in the hut or our outdoor bar. We don't have indoor tiki room. Yet.

How'd you get the concrete tiki home from hawaii?

lunavideogames thank you. So you have Asian and Egyptian too? VampiressRN also has an Egyptian bedroom. We agree that having each room designed like a different country is fun like Epcot Center in Florida. Dan started before I met him and we just kept going.

Hale Tiki your sides hurt? If you look closely at Dan's Bieber photo you can see a huge bruise on his side. He ran into a side mirror on a car.

hang10tiki imagine what GROG could say about his wangaroan mug and bowl.

LoriLovesTiki I even cut up photos to work from when I do portraits like the one of little lost tiki.




We bought the Hawaiian statue here from the antique dealer who brought it back. We were lucky. I've always thought about doing concrete tikis for the backyard. Please do step by step photos for us.


Progress Report

I'm making a Bob each day so I can fill the kiln and fire a bisque load. Here's Rum Barrel Bob.

First the metal bands.

Front.

On the back I put RUM and below XXX then I textured the barrel.






I put his name on the bottom.


Today I really will get back to glazing the severed heads. Thank you for the visit. Cheers, Wendy

Love the new Bob. Just curious. How do you smooth out that great wood texture without erasing the detail?

Dig the Bob barrel! That's a first!

And that's kind of funny. I run into stuff like that all the time and end up bruised. I do NOT walk gently. A man walks with purpose, someone once said, I believe. Or I'm making that up. Either way, I like it. I walk with purpose, and door handles, door ways, and car mirrors be damned! (Or in this case, Dan'ned. I couldn't resist.

I really like the rum barrel too, Wendy!

When I get to carving the concrete tikis I'll take pictures of the steps. That way people might learn something from my mistakes - or success, lol. I have the necessary supplies but need to be cautious with the timing because they should need 18 hrs or so to set up before the fun begins. Next weekend looks like a possibility but we're supposed to have an estate sale to get rid of some stuff from my FIL's house before we close on it. So it may have to wait some more.

Wendy....don't give up your Egyptian bedroom...then I will be the only one out there with one...LOL. Which reminds me...how about a King Tut mug some day...just sayin' might be good.

I can hardly wait to see our Cap City crawl mug this year...I know it will be awesome as always.

littlegiles You have won the first retro-active contest. When you mentioned that you had turned over the page to 200 you won a prize. Here it is. It went into the mail yesterday. It will take around 8 days to reach you. Congratulations.

Yesterday I rubbed off all the tiny pieces of clay that had dried on Barrel Bob. I will sand this and if needed I'll carve some more texture that looks like wood-grain. IN glazes will show the slightest scratch (just see your new Moai). I'll use one of those on the wood and metal glaze on the straps. Your prize Moai will hang on the wall or you can wear it and wear out your neck!

Hale Tiki Dan'ned, I need to remember this.

WaikikianMoeKele and I love hearing from you.

LoriLovesTiki best wishes for your sale. We'll look forward to your project when you have time.

hang10tiki I checked out all your San Diego finds and wow you are one great tiki hunter.

VampiressRN they sell those mugs at the Luxor in Las Vegas. They even come in 18K gold glaze.
Here comes the crawl mugs next steps.

uncle trav thank you for the visit and I thank everyone for liking Rum Barrel Bob.

Progress Report:

First thing in the morning I worked on the Sacramento Ohana Crawl mug. For littlegiles I've started on the butt.
I cut two squares the same size.

I rounded on square and used the other square to make the second one the same shape.

I stuck them in place.

This is the tool I used to shape the pieces.

I removed most of the cellulite from one cheek and left to work on the severed heads.



I have 22 heads left to glaze. I started by painting all 44 eyes with three coats of white paint.


When the eyes were all done I started painting just the black parts on each head.


It takes longer than I remembered for each head. Each black part is done 3 times so it took an hour to get this far for each head and there is still a lot left to do. At the end of the day I had 6. 16 are waiting for the black part to start.


It's time to go to work, cheers, Wendy

WOW! Thanks Wendy. You and Dan rock. I never expected to win a prize but it sure is a great way to start a day. Thank you so much. I think I have a great piece of wall to hang him.

Love the progress on the new mug. You have to admit there is just something fun about a little tiki booty and his is really shaping up, no pun intended.

I had no idea the number of steps on each of those severed heads. I thought when you were applying the layers of glaze it was over the other details but now I realize it was more of an underglaze. I learn a lot following along with you on these projects.

Thanks for sharing and letting us join you on these journeys.

Dale

"I caught Dan doing a Justin Beiber with his pants..."
I am so glad I re-read that statement. The first time I read it I just saw "I caught Dan...Justin Bieber's pants..." and I wasn't sure what was going on!!!

So much cool stuff you are always working on Wendy
The light blue and light green acrylic Moais look like ice sculptures.
The Crawl mug is coming along awesome and I love that Rum Barrel Bob too.

See ya next month!!!
