I like the mug butt better than the scary butt that Grog posted!

I'm glad to say that I also noticed the slightly saggy left cheek, maybe watching the Wendy & Dan Show is honing my eye!

Hale Tiki of course I like it since its Dan's.

GROG did you pose for that photo?

Kele I like a smooth one better too.

hang10tiki he did pose for that photo!


Progress Report:

Saggy Bun repair. How is it now?


Then I carved in Sacramento on the back. However my husband requested that I carve Dan's Butt with a down arrow.


I didn't do that butt here's a new photo of the backside. Today I'll carve Coral Reef sideways on the upper flat area. I want it to be BIG.



I've started to work on a few Bob's now that all the Severed Heads are done. I get to open the kiln to verify that today.

Dan named this one Mrs. Tiki Bob.


Next I did a super carved mug called Lightning Bob.




I have a lot of fun converting Bob's but more fun reading your comments and seeing your posted photos.
Big Smile, Wendy

I like the fabric, reminds me of Mad Dogs Tiki Trailer


The butt looks good too!
The Tiki, not Mikes.

Wendy, the Bobs (er, and Bob-ette(?) are looking great, as well as the Sac Crawl mug. If only Sacramento was closer to join in on the crawl!

The Tiki Bobs look great. I cannot wait to see you work you magic with the glaze.

I hope they are headed for some good homes.

The Sacramento mug is really looking great!! Very nice job on the butt lift. Between that and nose jobs you are well on your way to being a tiki plastic surgeon.

Love the new Bob mugs. creative and fun.

TikiAno its fun to be back to working on some Bob's in my spare time. She is a Bob-ette first and a Mrs. second.
Our crawl is perfect. It started with Psycho Tiki D and now VampiressRN is doing it. They both put on the best events ever. Last year to hit every party we drove 404 miles. Tiki is big in Northern California too.

Chippy glaze is everything. None of the Bob's I'm doing now have homes. I just show them and wait to see if someone asks for one of them. You can put a hold on one and once its glazed you can say no-thank-you after all. Mrs. Tiki Bob is going to be pretty.

littlegiles I actually wanted to be a plastic surgeon and went to college as a science major. But every time I took second semester calculus I got bronchitis and had to drop out of that class. So now I do the surgery on tikis so it all worked out in the end.

Hale Tiki I am always relieved when the box arrives safely. Thank you for the wonderful photo.

hang10tiki are you describing Hale Tiki? He does look really good.


Progress Report:

Yesterday morning I opened the kiln and took out the mugs that I'd glazed again. This time I can say they have been done to the best of my ability. So I've been contacting people in waves. I'm waiting to hear from 4 more before I do the next set. This project is finished. I will put those altered heads with snakes and shrunken on eBay in the future unless contacted before hand. They can be seen on Gallery.

Bottom shelf.



Sacramento Crawl Mug (on sale now, just let me know to put you on the list)

First I enlarged the sign that was on the roof of this Sacramento Tiki Landmark.


After printing it I put it on the back of the sculpt to trace out Coral Reef.










Roughed out but not finished.


I hope to finish it in time to do the mold on Friday. Wish me luck.

Thank you again for the visit and for the comments. They give me energy. Wendy

Don't change a thing, it's perfect. And it looks like it could have been an awesome location mug if the bar was still open.

Hale Tiki

Thank you men. I fine tuned the tiki yesterday and now we are up and getting prepped to do the mold. Here are a few photos and then I need to join Dan in the garage. This will be a very long day.

I melted the bottom of a large piece of hard clay in a hot wax heater.


Once it was gooey I pressed it down hard on the top.


Then I started adding clay to seal it on.



I continued to add more and more clay that I was softening under a hot light bulb.
I did this until it was round and as large as possible while still leaving a rim.


I finished the lettering and now today we will mold this big baby.


Is that butt saggy again? Oh well it must be meant to be. Now to the garage! I appreciate all your visits very much, Wendy

Good luck with the mold making you two! I know it is heavy, hard and exhausting work, but in the end you create magic with it. Can't wait to see photos of this process. That is going to be one helluva mold.

The final sculpt looks great and the little Tiki Tushy looks wonderful. Nobody has a perfectly balanced butt, well, except Dan. (pst...Grog, that's your cue.)
