Wendy, I love the beginning of the painting, and can't wait to see more. I love the lamps as well- and was wondering what had happened to that project...

I agree with Jon, Dan scored!

Gene S Morgan thank you for posting a note. I've never even seen a program other than paint which is hard to work with, maybe one day. I have enough paints to last a lifetime so I'm in no hurry. Please post step by steps on your light project.

zerostreet if only you could see them flicker!

MadDogMike it is nice that I have a gallery here that I can visit. He wants everything so I have to say no sometimes.

hang10tiki and to think those were Bob's with solid clay inside so I couldn't make them into mugs. Sometimes something pushes you into a new project that turns out fun.

TikiAno thing is about Dan he has the most fun trying to find a place for new tikis. He found the best place for these.


Progress Report

22 mugs drying in the shed.


I've had too many times that slip was too thick and hung up in the mold. So we buy 1/2 filled jugs.


I add water and stir it up until it feels just right. I do the same with plaster when I make molds.


I poured mugs #23 and #24. I figured out that my huge mess happened yesterday because I had only put on one strap and forgot to put on the other three. When we went to pour out the molds I saw that and put them on and all was well.


Then this afternoon I worked on the painting. Right now it looks like the palm trees are growing out of the ocean. That will change.

I thought it would be fun to wrap the palm fronds around the side. This will not have a frame.

Step by step.

Maybe I should call this Lotsa Coconuts.


Sharing Sherry and the Mocking Bird
The bird flies.

The bird lands on Sherry.

The bird better watch out because Sherry flies too!


Imagine what I could do if I knew photoshop! Thank you all for the kind words and for the visit.
Have a great night, Wendy

The on;y good thing about being away from the computer for a couple of days is multiple new pages on the Dan & Wendy show!

I love Ukelele Bob! I guess I just have a thing for Bobs with hands!!

The new red painting is to die for. I wish it was for the cannibal sway, then I'd have a chance of getting it. I am excited about the cannibal theme but only the receiving part! I have no idea what to create. Please send me inspiration thoughts!

Keep up the great work.

The painting is looking great Wendy! I know it's only just begun, but I kind of really like the floating palm trees . Maybe I'm too pushy for asking, but how does one get into the Oasis art show? I've signed up for the art swap and am excited for that! Can't wait to see what you'll come up with for the cannibal theme.

hang10tiki which all equals playing with clay and enjoying my cat.

cy I hope I can get those trees on solid ground/sand.

LoriLovesTiki thank you. I'm going to try to turn Ukulele Bob's face white. He needs more contrast.
I'm sending you waves of inspiration. I'm making something gross.

MadDogMike Sherry does jumps that scare me. So far she's fine.

Woodtiki there is never a bad question only bad answers. Kidding. PM me your email address and I'll send you a copy of the call out to artists. Then you can contact Baby Doe about bringing your art. If has to be dropped off and picked up by certain dates. It's fun to do something for Tiki Oasis and it raises money for charity. I could leave the painting like this, add a half submerged tiki and call it global warming.

Progress Report

Sorry I missed yesterday. We are getting ready for a family reunion with lots of playing with kids. I'll post tomorrow and then I'll be running around until next week. I hope you will keep the thread alive with jokes and photoshop and messages. I'll be doing quick checks but I'll get nabbed it I'm caught.

#25 and #26 out of the molds

and now drying in the shed.



Wet the mugs average at 12 1/2 inches...dry they are now averaging just under 12 inches. They will shrink again when they are bisque fired.

Wet mugs averaged 3 3/4 pound...dry they are now averaging 3 1/4 pounds. If they are dry then bisque firing will not reduce the weight. If I fire and they are not dry they will boil and crack. I'm waiting a good long time.


A long time ago I cast a lot of the hula girls. Today I was going to make a bowl with them and found that they were fine from the waist up but all the legs were paper thin. I don't know why except that they were cast in the very cold winter months. Oh well now I need to figure out what to use them for, maybe necklaces.


Woodtiki asked what I'm doing for the Cannibal Swap. I started today. I'm making a stew pot from the mold I made to do 19tikichef62's bowl.

Here's the start:

Cast last night, slip left in for 2 hours so that it will be thick.

Opened the mold this morning.

I cut off the top because I want to see into the pot.

I turned it over and rubbed the bottom with a wet paper towel to indent it. I'll carve my name when it firms up.

Turned back over I used the towel to round the edges.

I cut into the clay to make an indentation to make a lip on the pot.

I made a sloppy lip. Once the clay is firmer I can work with it. However this is a primitive pot.

I added clay that I can later carve into PNG masks or shields.

Top view showing all three.

Here's a view of the shape. I won't carve until it is firm. I wrapped it in plastic wrap so that it will dry slowly and keep these attached.


I have a dilemma. I like to keep all my work on this thread but I should put photos on the Swap thread too or maybe a link until it is further along. Hummm.

Thank you for the visit, more tomorrow, Wendy

Wendy, love the stew pot- and I see an immediate use for hula girl parts (as a potential stew ingredient?) No?

Okay, just a thought. Btw, you are on fire re: Sac Crawl mugs- how many are you making?

Thanks for sharing all- I just posted some of the new pieces on my thread.

Love the direction you are heading with that Cannibal Pot. Should be a fun swap item. Can't wait to see what else you do to it.

Have a great time with the family reunion.


- Dale

Wendy, maybe some miniature severed heads to throw in the pot for added flavor? Just kidding.

Hale Tiki well I'm off and running but starting tomorrow I have my family reunion and it will be a time to walk slowly and hug a lot. I'll only be popping in to read and say hi.

littlegiles thank you family is very important.

TikiAno that would have been fun but the pot is filled.

Progress Report

I started work to make the face bug-eyed and screaming. I've never watched Dexter because I thought it would look like this.

I cut off the legs so that the girl would fit in the pot.

Just another view.

I still need to carve the PNG designs into the lemons and finish the eyes.
Creepy.


Watching TV is a great time to carve clay. I did this Big Maori mug.










I'll miss posting photos but I'll look forward to seeing if any of you did. Cheers, Wendy
