GROG from the looks of that photo I think Dan got any problem he had fixed. He really cracked up and I think we will send it on to a few friends and family members to see what they think. Not much sterile technique in that photo. You are a master and we hope you never stop.

hang10tiki spitting coke proves he is a master but you too are right up there. I'm so happy to hear you are working on the stump. I'll check out your carving thread soon. My whole tiki career started with repairing chips for Dan.


littlegiles Dan thanks you Dale. The surgeon said it would take two weeks before he felt a change but not so. He felt less pain by the next day. We took a walk and he didn't limp. Good news for him and for the mug that got repaired.

What's up.
A couple of days ago I mentioned we were going to the Cancer Society Pacific Rim Sale. Well it was except they are saving everything Hawaiian, Island and tiki for June. However we did find one spoon from Mexico that was close enough and Dan bought it for his collection.


Yesterday we took a break and went to the Elk Grove Western Festival.

New cars and booths around the lake in the park. This was where we took the walk and Dan did much better.

When we got home he worked the repaired mug into his collection.


Progress Report on the Sacramento Crawl mug

The mug looked close to finished except for the lettering however it was far from done. I needed to go over each part and to make it look even more like the carved wooden tiki.

The parts I changed were the top, eyes, cheeks, nose, the sides of the mouth and lips. These were all big changes. I'll just show you how I did the nose again. Now I'm satisfied that it looks as much like the wooden tiki as I can do for molding.

Much more will happen to each clay cast. Example I will add the grooves above the eyes and the nostrils.

Here's the second nose re-work. The nose needed to sit back further than the lips.














It's getting much better with a some cosmetic surgery. I hope to finish it this week.
I hope you are all having a great weekend.

Cheers, Wendy

Wow! Wendy fixes everything!

Great job on the nose job, crack repair and Dan's knee. (Although I guess the cortizone shots gets some credit.)

Glad Dan is walking and feeling better. I'm tempted to get one of those giant crawl mugs, they're going to be great. Trying to resist.....

Wendy I love your attention to detail ~ I just don't have the patience for that. Seems like the goal on my projects moves from "perfect" -> "good" -> "good enough" in a matter of a few hours
Hope Dan is doing better, that long needle SCARED me!!!!

Wow. Hope Dan is feeling better. I would run screaming I have an aversion to needles especially big ones like that.

Pretty neat to know you can repair older mugs like that, now you got me curious if it would work for hairline cracks.

I didn't know you were a plastic surgeon, Wendy... doing nose jobs like that.

GOOD LORD GROG! The places your mind leaps sometimes I wonder about you.

So glad that the shot seems to have worked already and you two were able to get out and about with little or no pain! WOOHOO!! Cool find with the spoon. Even if it says Mexico, the idol at the top looks tiki to me.

Great job on the nose. Amazing how much clay you cut off and then turned around and made it look good again.


Dale

Jon, it's best that you view it in small, easy to digest chunks. Seeing it all in person can be a bit overwhelming!

LoriLovesTiki its fun to fix something and have it work. Dan is still doing better since the shot. It's a compliment that you have to resist.

MadDogMike detail comes into play when copying. I could whip out a tiki fast but having it be the Coral Reef Tiki deserves the time and respect to get it right. You would do that I know.

GROG GROG! GROOOOOOOOOOG!!!

Hale Tiki GROG!

tigertail777 GOOD LORD GROG!
If I ever try a hairline crack I'll post it for sure. Dan thanks you.

Hale Tiki we love Gecko'z art. We started collecting his work when bowls were $40 and kept on going.

littlegiles here's how it all ended up.

hang10tiki I'll always wonder that we don't make it into Tiki Magazine because they think everyone has see it all because I post so much.

MadDogMike I like hearing we overwhelmed you on your visit. We tried!


Progress on the Sacramento Crawl mug and Misc.

Yesterday I glazed 12 severed heads a third time and fired them last night. I didn't take photos because they would look like others I've already done. I'm going to start contacting everyone about their SH mugs today except my Sacramento Ohana. They get theirs last because I know they are close by.

Oh first up the necklaces that I showed earlier on this thread. They are finished.

Bisque fired and washed.

Set out to glaze.

Glazed.

Drying in the sun.

Put in the kiln to fire with other stuff.

Kiln opened.

Now they just need their chords.


Sacramento Crawl mug. This is how it turned out after the marathon day of carving and adjusting. I'm really happy with how I've copied the original. Next up will be the lettering.









This is a good day to get some work done! Wendy

Nice tushy! I'm sure it's just the lighting, but his left side looks a little droopier than the right?

Loki Tiki that's why I like to take photos and look at them for "problem" areas. I saw that this morning and I was waiting to see if it was mentioned. Good Job. I'll see you all at Caliente. Your Severed Head is ready for delivery. Wendy

If he flexes his glutes, does he have striations?



(That's a picture of Dan, by the way, flexing his glutes.)
