Wendy, looking great. I think we need a front view so the top hat and bow tie photoshopping can begin.

I continue to be impressed with your letter carving skill. Wowzers.

Here, this is better


That sculpt looks great Wendy, you can see the hours of dedication that went into it. Good luck on the molding process.

Yes Wendy,
I agree with TikiAno. You are amazing at cursive in clay! There is not way I could ever do that half as good as you did. Great job! Mug is looking great!

Are you thinking of vending at Don the Beachcomer in June? Just wondering if we will see some of these Bobs and Bobbies for sale sometime soon.

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.)

hang10tiki we had a perfect day without any leaks or injuries.

GROG its set in stone and unchangeable, like a Moai.

LoriLovesTiki we don't like missing events either because of all the fun people that are there.

TikiAno there are times I think I'm missing some trick on how to do it better and faster. I keep plugging away.

MadDogMike your good luck wishes worked. We had a great day.

lunavideogames I am slowly making some Bobs that I post here. If you see one you like you can put a hold on it until it is glazed and then take it or pass. We have plans and can't make Marketplace on June 8th dang it.

Use my trick and practice, you'll be able to do it. I've only used that trick a few times and it works.


Progress Report: Dan is waiting for me in the garage to start on a second mold of the Crawl mug. I'll try to put up more photos tonight. Here are the first set from yesterday.

We cut a board that was the right size for the mold thickness we wanted. Oh GROG we are too scared to make it thinner.


Dan made a bunch of snakes for use in plugging cracks.


I used a snake to mark the section for the first piece of the mold.
I brushed it to make the contact tight.


I put the tiki face down on top of a soft chux. Watch for those at estate sales they are good for many projects and packing.


I packed clay around the tiki.


I added the mold walls and finished off with snakes. This is ready for the first pour of plaster.


Gotta Go Dan's calling me to work. Cheers, Wendy

"Oh GROG we are too scared to make it thinner. "

Yep. GROG' mold walls would have been more like this:



You're either going to have to buy a forklift for Dan, or pay for his hernia operation.

GROG we are trying to get those GROG muscles pictured on the last page! Your are right though, our mold is crazy heavy, again.

hang10tiki now I feel sorry for him but he'll be saved soon.

WaikikianMoeKele my favorite part too. On the tiki of course.


Progress Report on the first day of mold making.

Continuing day one I mark the level I want the liquid plaster to reach with a piece of clay. GROG I didn't mix enough to make the line so I thought we were making it even thinner. Nope.


Taking off the box you can see how thick it is.


Now we flipped it, nix that, Dan flipped it over and I smoothed this out and we poured this side. I forgot to take photos.


Now we have two sides poured. We belted it so the sides would stay in place.


I dug out the clay on one side and used mold soap so we could pour plaster touching plaster and not have it stick.


We added boards to the ends and belted them in place added snakes and poured plaster. We repeated this for the other side.


For the bottom I made the space between pieces larger so that plaster from the bottom would fill it in and make it less likely to leak. I made a mistake here. I should have also made the bump locks on each piece. Oh Well.


Mold soap, snakes and ready to pour the last piece.


At the end of a long day we had one mold that should work out.


At 18 inches tall that means my mold walls were 2.5 inches thick. A very heavy mold.


Now this mold needs to completely dry out before use.

Tomorrow I'll post the Horror of making the second mold. Thank goodness we can survive with just one.

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday, Wendy

Wow, that is one BIG mold. Love the step by step pictures.

Great cliffhanger until tomorrow. It's like the Lone Ranger movies or the old Batman TV show.

Will the mold work?
What happened to mold #2?
Tune in tomorrow...
Same Wendy time, same Dan channel.
