I've been super busy with tiki stuff the past two weeks, lots of big news to follow, but I wanted to chime in and say again that the process was so much fun. And I definitely learned some things. You can't tell from the photos, but the Papua Loa Tiki mug fits BEAUTIFULLY in the hand. I'll have to take a photo, but I've never held another mug that just fit so nicely. And in person, it's gorgeous. Maddy's mug isn't quite as ergonomic, but it's beautiful. And the octopous tentacles look wonderful glazed. The story of what they're for will follow Wendy's posts

Oh, and here's a look at me over the weekend, with one of the reasons I've been so busy:

Another Wendy Severed Head on ebay. I wonder how much it will end up at...
http://www.ebay.com/itm/200939418775?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

And I am sure people saw it but, an actual Ren Clark original version just finished today and sold for $1500.00! Too rich for my blood! I don't know if I will ever own that guy...
http://www.ebay.com/itm/321148128530?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

I too am excited to see the rest of Hale Tikis mug. That sketch of the glaze patterns looks crazy.

I used mine for the presentation that I was in full regalia for above. It was a severed head, a shrunken head, and a skull. Don't think the judges quite picked up on it, but that's what happens when your presentation is in Tok-pisin.

Hale Tiki I really am having fun leading up to your big reveal and I'm not talking about the mugs. The photo is so much fun but really you should have messed up that perfect hair.

lunavideogames How should his hair been styled?

MadDogMike I'm so glad you like the painting so far. Hale Tikis story is a good one.

Atomic Tiki Punk did I have you wait long enough. When I was a kid my initials were the same as my dads. My mom would give me all the junk mail as if it were for me. I would carry it around and my mom asked me one day why I didn't open it up right away. I told that the anticipation was always the best part because what was inside always ended up being tossed out. Hale Tikis story will be a keeper even after I finish here. I'm glad we are getting to you

lunavideogames it's time for Hale Tikis mug reveal. Thank you for the link to my severed head. I have fun watching. I hope he at least gets his money back.

Hale Tiki I think everyone should photoshop different hair on your head in that photo.

hang10tiki I'm glad you like the painting too. Here comes some mug shots!


Hale Tikis mug reveal.

This will seem like a lot of photos of his mug but remember that I had to do each step three times. All these glazes required three layers. I just show you in these photos the first layer that I put on.

I started with the black glaze required in many areas.


I can't get it on in a thin enough line so after each time I painted it I would then rub some off with a wet paper towel. I did the bottom edge.


Side view after wiping.


I do glazing upside down too so I can check for any missed spots.


I kept his instructions right in front of me and read them over and over again.


All the black is done.


Now I moved on to a new color on the face and


an the drum designs.


Next the red was added to the front.


Now the tapa design got color.


Then I had to very carefully paint white glaze in all the rest of the areas.


I finished the bottom with the wrong month. We hadn't caught it yet.


All done. The tongue has dried and the rest will too.

Now it will be waiting until it is time to fire.


Maddy's mug. Here is where I messed up. I should have said no to his glaze choice for the background color but instead I said I would try to make it work. So I glazed her mug as requested.

Inside the mug I used the same color as requested for the outside. See all the crystals? These melt and run down making streaks. They don't stop running even if something like an octopus is in the way.

Paint and wipe, paint and wipe, paint and wipe.












Well that's it for today, more tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

Wow the rocky look on the undersea mug looks very cool. The intricate design on Hale's mug is great! I bet you must have spent a lot of your free time making these two. But you still had time to do other projects. You are a tiki machine Wendy!

Wow Wendy. So many steps but you can already tell how beautiful they are going to be. I forsee problems in the future with that blue crystal glaze. I'm not psychic or anything, just noticed you mentioned that glaze a few times with this mug.

Just a technical question about applying the glaze. Is the problem putting the glaze on in thin lines a brush problem, or is the glaze just so thick it won't lay down in a thin line? Believe it or not, when I was doing porcelain dollhouse dolls, i used to apply china paint to the porcelain using a cat whisker. Nothing better for painting tiny lines and eyelashes. Probably also why I'm not practically blind and wear reading glasses. LOL

Love the progress photos. This is a very exciting project to follow.

Perfect haircut for any occasion. (That not GROG' head Photoshopped on there, but it is a TCer from Las Vegas. Can you guess who?)

HAH! I actually laughed very loudly at work when I saw this. Let the photoshopping begin!

(And in regards to the hair, I didn't have time to put together a proper head dress, and definitely don't have black, long, kinky hair, so I went with normal hairdo. And every once inawhile, my hair is as nice as it was in my younger days. That day happened to be one of those days, and didn't really go with the outfit, but then again neither did my pasty European self.)
