hang10tiki I agree, Dan is one of a kind too.

TikiAno oh no, now that bowl is on his wish list!

hang10tiki I think GROG is yummy. I missed my spying on Dan until he pointed out my head.

GROG you must have lost your head over that ice cream dish.

I would like to thank you all for the photoshopped images. Dan enjoys them so much that it makes my day. I love them too. You guys rock. Wendy

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hale Tiki great, I'm going to start my part of the story now.


I you all have thought we were tiki busy before wait until you see what's been going on behind the scenes. Very soon Hale Tiki will be sharing photos of the biggest and best event of his young life so far. He asked me to help him with one small part.

Hale Tiki asked me to make two mugs that he had designed. The mugs were very special because they would be used to toast a special event he had planned at this years Hukilau.

I'm going to show the step by steps that these mugs took to pull off. My hope is that you will enjoy seeing how Hale Tikis mind works. These were his designs and done with my hands.

First up the instructions for his mug.

The bottom of the mug is to be like this vintage mug.

The top of the mug should be the Tiki Central Tapa like I did on ebTikis mug.

A tiki face should be on the front.

He wanted this headdress and eyes

but glazed in this way.

He wanted this chin design and the tongue

but glazed in this way.

I printed all these photos and cut them up.

I taped them together to make a picture of what the mug should look like.

He went though all the glazes on line and came up with a list and then he drew the mug and labeled where each glaze should be used.




Of course I didn't own a single glaze but I was able to locate every one of them at Alpha.


Would I be able to make his wish come true? Stay tuned tomorrow I'll start showing you the mug he wanted made for his special lady.

The Wish Lists are always a fun challenge. Cheers, Wendy

That is a very cool secret project! Very exciting for Hale Tiki I am sure. It must have something to do with the question he popped at the event.

It is a good lookin mug! I am excited to see it in all of its glory!

lunavideogames Hale Tiki came up with a couple of challenging assignments for me. He did pop at Hukilau!

lunavideogames the photo I posted is one from a museum. Babalu did an excellent mug tribute as you show up for bidding on eBay.

Holler Waller Hale Tiki did a good selection of parts. It's going to be fun to show how it was done.

Chippy did you see the Badge Bob? Your Chippy mug has inspired other law enforcement personal to ask for one that suits them.

Photos and drawings sure help.

hang10tiki while there will be no reruns there will be highs and low points of failure.


Next up is the start for the mug that Hale Tiki wanted made for his special lady.
He wanted a sea-life mug with happy faces. on the back he wanted her favorite tiki.

I showed him the sea-life sculpts that I'd done for Roge's lamps.


He wanted a puffer, sea horse and an Octopus. I found this octopus as an example.


This is her favorite tiki, one of mine too.


Hale Tiki did this drawing of how the mug should look. I had all his glaze choices except one for the seahorse which I purchased.


For the background of the mug he wanted this glaze that I'd used for the last swap. I told him that it would run but its what he wanted. My first mistake with his mug was to say OK. If a glaze melts to have streaks it is because it is made to move on the surface. It doesn't care if something is in the way.


Progress Report on the Crawl Mug

Check List
1. Pour 50 mugs for the crawl. Check/done.
2. Pour enough to satisfy Dan and do glaze tests. Should be done by the end of the week.


I managed to sand 12 but then I've had to stop for a few days to recover.


I sent Dan out to watch the molds dry but he took a book to read so the time would pass faster. Sneaky boy!


Until tomorrow, Wendy

Hale Tiki's mug is just insane (in all the right ways!!!)
It could just be the most "Tiki" of any Tiki Mug ever
I hope the god of the kiln (Pele, Vulcan?) blesses this project.
