Love the ZipperBob, what fun! And the painting is coming along nicely too. Wendy, I was in San Jose last night for a wedding. I went outside and hollered your name towards the northeast ~ did you hear me

Wendy, painting looks great, look forward to seeing it in person.

Love the Grog zipper mug. Grog, I hope it gets lots of use in your cave post-procedure. I agree, the glaze job on it looks fantastic- love it.

Thanks for posting.

hang10tiki that word can never be used too much. GROG is awesome as are you!

LoriLovesTiki I've been told that Hale Tiki was just laid off his job. So the story which is to be put on the Ohana page will have to wait until he is up and running again. My heart goes out to you Hale Tiki. Best Wishes always.

GROG is such a great guy and good friend. I wanted to bring a smile to his face. Best wishes GROG.

MadDogMike my hearing is not so good but Dan told me he heard it but didn't recognize your voice, good thing to told me. I'm so glad you like Zipper Bob, I like your skull art for the cannibal swap.

TikiAno isn't it fun to go on vacation and to run into so many people that you know. I love tiki events. I'm looking forward to the art show too.

We'll raise a cup to GROG mighty cave man of California. See lots of you soon.

Progress Report

I opened the kiln.

I could see how the different numbers of layers affected the crawl mugs.


The skin colored glaze did not cover the smeared black on the faces

but the defect in the volcano is now gone. I'll do the faces again. Looks like I missed checking out the hands.

The clear glaze worked perfectly. The mug is covered with glaze while leaving the defect showing. I wish I could do it again. Maybe...

Outside view

and another side view.

All the separated areas inside the bowl are now covered with glaze.

There are also differences in how thick the glaze is so there is texture.

Dan has chosen the lighter brown as his favorite. Front

and the backside.



The mug has Dan's bottom and I did one mug with his green eyes.

I was greatly surprised to see that the wax relief worked perfectly. I hadn't missed waxing any areas so out of the kiln I found no brown glaze interfering with the lettering, eyes, nostrils or mouth. Now I really like the wax. However I can't really spend so much time to do this to all the mugs. Three layers of glaze and then one of the wax took 1.5 hours and I still had to do the inside and outside in brown.

I'm going to do a test where I use cold paint in the lettering and leave the front as is which is Dan's preference. With cold paint I only have to do one layer.

Thank you for sticking with me through all the ups and downs. Cheers, Wendy

The final decision has been made on the Sacramento Crawl mug. I will leave it at dark Espresso Brown and not do any painting. That way I will be willing to sell them for $70 each. I have 2 left of the run of 50. Shipping adds to those who do not attend the crawl.

Here's what the final will look like. Remember it weighs almost 4 pounds.



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

We are leaving now to meet up with Mahalo Tiki for lunch. Today I'll do more on my Oasis Painting.

Cheers, Wendy

Beautiful brown Wendy! I am confused how the wax relief you were talking about works? Maybe you can enlighten me. I really like your "mistake" interior to that one mug...very cool.

I got your package a few days ago, did not get a chance to open it until this weekend.

You remembered my favorite color I see, and so orange it must be! Thanks the little puffy is beautiful! Love the colorful speckles! (sorry for the poor photo my mom was having a hard time figuring out how to get my head and the necklace in the shot )

I can't wait to put that crawl mug right next to the zombie torch...they look to be about the same in scale and will anchor my Wendy Shelf perfectly...amazing....

I can't believe how lucky Dan is! 50 different people are gonna be grabbing his butt constantly...I usually just get a swat in the back of the head for most of the people who know me.

zerostreet just for you! Here's the picture up on the screen while Dan is having his light study.


hang10tiki he resembles that remark!

MadDogMike I really didn't want another brown tiki but that's the color of the Coral Reef tiki. I think what sets this apart is the size and weight. So far everyone likes it like this, I so glad you do too.

Here's Dan's response when I asked him zerostreet's question about another photo.


tigertail777 thank you for the photo. If you won a different question I couldn't have given you your color. You must have the luck of the Irish.

I painted on underglaze in the letters and covered it with wax painted the same way. Then I sprayed on the brown glaze. During firing the wax burns off and takes the brown glaze with it so only the under-glaze color is left.

dartharnie you are right. Thank you. I did the sculpt of the Coral Reef Tiki on top of the Zombie Torch.

(I can't believe how lucky Dan is! 50 different people are gonna be grabbing his butt constantly...) I think he hopes it will just be all the woman.

GROG see above that laugh is for you too!

tikiskip new job spell checker and good at it too!

----------------------------------------------------------
I really enjoyed all your posts, thank you all very much. I love to smile and you give me that each time you post. Here's the mug. I can't seem to get really good photos. I tried two ways.

With flash.

With Flash.


Without Flash.


I had a fun day with my best friend Norma. We met in 8th grade and still hang out together.
We glazed for a day but also talked a lot.


I worked on two hula girl necklaces. I glaze them inside and out. To keep them from running I wiped off the skin color before I added the colors to the eyes, mouth and nipples. It's ok if the lei's run.




I put them on spikes in the kiln. These spots will be sanded when they come out.


Time for dinner and the finale of The Bachelorette. Cheers, Wendy

What's absolutely crazy is how much more classic these look than most of the mugs considered to be classic. Unreal. Beautiful.

Wendy ... This may seem like a dumb question, but does the flash or no flash look the most like the actual color? I think the flash caramel color is cool, but the non flash chocolate color is fantastic ... it makes the shape and form look stronger .... Great mug ..... Gene
