Thanks for the fun pics Wendy. I can always count on you to make it feel like I was there. One day, I promise!

Jon, you are going to have to knock out that wall to the right if you keep adding to your collection.

MadDogMike we voted you and Teresa had the best tiki smiles of the whole event. It was so good to see you both.

Professor G no fires on the way home. We also never saw an accident or anyone getting a ticket. That's great for a 900 mile drive. See you wished us well and it happened.

zerostreet glad you liked them. I like your RockaHulaBilly painting in progress.

Atomic Tiki Punk so many tikis and people and so little time. See you soon at another event.

TikiAno I hope to never see those carts again. It's on to the next coincidence.

ebtiki maybe one day you will come to this side of America or we will travel to your side.

hang10tiki this was our best visit with you and your lovely wife. We look forward to more visits. Did your Zombie Torch flame get broken? I don't see it on the mug in the photo.


Progress Report on the 8 new Bobs, the crawl mug mold is still too wet to pour. It's in the sun and wind slowly drying.

Bisque Fired and ready to come out of the kiln and to be washed.
Top Shelf

Bottom Shelf


I was complimented by a lady bug. It couldn't believe that the flower didn't contain nectar. I took a dozen photos until I took the bug and moved it to a real plant.






Mrs. Tiki Bob


Then Dan filled the buckets and I washed it all from the kiln.


Set to dry, glazing is next.


Thank you for the visit, Wendy

Love the opened kiln pics. The ladybug on the flower is priceless. I used to like ladybugs until I opened the attic of the new house and found THOUSANDS of them living up there. It was pretty creepy. Seems we have had invasions of them lately.

Ok, enough buggy stories...you have lots of glazing to do. HAHA

I always love your travelogues Wendy, thanks for sharing the Tiki Caliente trip. One day I hope to make it there.

That is hilarious that you confused that poor little lady bug.

The Wendy and Dan show has been wonderful as usual.

W- look at you two, right back at it.
Good eye on the torch flame, I almost knocked it off twice, so it's in a safe spot.
Again it was great spending time with you guys.

Jon

MadDogMike it sure seemed that way to me. It never left the flower to walk the rim. See you and Teresa in August.

littlegiles I've seen packages of ladybugs for sale in nurseries but never thousands. I hope you have a photo to share.

WaikikianMoeKele it was fun to watch, did your head arrive?

tigertail777 I love sharing because you are all such a wonderful audience. You keep us going. Are you going to be at Tiki Kon in Portland? Maybe the bug likes white flowers?

hang10tiki the visits are the best part. Photos too. I'll have to see what you post on Tiki Finds.


Progress Report

This summer will be focused on the Sacramento Crawl mug, the painting for Tiki Oasis and always Bob's here and there. We will also share our tiki events too.

Yesterday I found that the bad mold was dry and then in the afternoon the hot dry wind made it possible to also pour the good mold.

First up the bad mold. The sides are open.

Inside the mold it looked good except for the areas that had broken off. When that happens you end up with more clay on the cast that you can carve off and repair.

We tried to pour in a little slip and to rotate it to seal the leaks. Nope it just poured out.

So I packed all the space between the mold pieces with clay to prevent the slip from getting out. Dan poured it in.

I hammered the sides to get out the air bubbles that get trapped.

My first test was to let the slip sit in the mold for two hours. Then we poured it out.

As it poured out I watched the insides with a flash light to make sure that no excess was hanging up. It poured out well.

It was placed on boards to drain and later in the day when the good mold was dry we poured it too. The good mold didn't need any clay on the sides it was leak free. I pulled off the clay from the sides of the bad mold. It is easier to get it off wet and having sat for those two hours there is no slip in liquid form so nothing will come out.


Today I will open them both and see it I have a couple of tikis, one in good shape and one that will need detailing.

So Dan's waiting it is time to go to work. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, yes my Severed Head arrived in all it lovely, bloody scariness. I love it!
My family can't figure out why I would want one. But it has been suggested that I should take it to work to keep my co-workers in line! lol
I will see if someone will take a picture of me with it this weekend.
