Sorry bout the bowl guys Good trick for numbering the mugs. I wonder if you could also use some kind of self adhesive tag to mask off the area then peel it off when you are done glazing? Cool spiderweb!

The pic of the tikis & spider web is amazing!

I would have thought that you would need to stand on a stepstool to reach the bottoms of those huge mugs.
(& I can't wait for the glazing of the OTHER bottoms, too! hee-hee)

MadDogMike hi Mike, the "peel off the label" might work for me in the future, thank you. I carved so many words on each of these mugs that the space left for numbering was different on each mug. I'd actually carved a box on the bottom of each one, none were the same shape. I think sometimes I work harder than I should need too.

WaikikianMoeKele when I read your message Dan went hee-hee too.

tigertail777 you are welcome tiger. I used to paint all the time, now I do ceramics every day. Those paints needed to go where they would be used. I know you'll turn them into something great.

hang10tiki I hope he doesn't get a spider bite!

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

On our trip Dan found this tiki in an antique shop in Ocean Beach where lunavideogames is located. It had a large chip but I told him to buy it and I'd repair it.


I found a way to put it into position so that I could use clear fingernail polish to build back the missing part.


It took five days and around 60 layers to build this up. Each layer is extremely thin. Going slowly also allows you to build up edges. So I was able to keep the right shape. This is an inbetween photo. It had a ways to go.


Once I had the missing piece replaced with the polish I found paint to match. First layer with the light color.


The next layer was darker to age the spot and blend it in.


Next I used an acrylic paint varnish to fix it so the paint wouldn't wash off.


All done.


I love that the label says it was made with coral.


Close up.


Fixing Dan's tikis is how this became my primary type of artwork. Now I'm addicted.

Cheers, Wendy

As always, thanks for the step by step repair walk through

....I love learning these types of little tricks to fix minor problems with things. I did something similar two weekends ago with a gouge in my headboard. Used wood filler, sawdust and melted crayons to fill it. There was a time when I was younger I would have just said, "duct" it and call it a day.

BTW, I'm a little giddy to see the Crawl mugs getting some color...yippee

hang10tiki it took a lot of patience but the payoff is huge. PS Dan wishes he were photo shopped as much as GROG

dartharnie I feel your yippee and smile, I'm smiling too.

GROG UPDATE:

They say you can't teach an old caveman new tricks but I'm going to see if I can. I've sent GROG a box of photoshop books to read while he recovers from his surgery. My hope is that we'll see more of his work here after he learns some new tricks. Best wishes for an excellent outcome of your surgical procedure on 9/11 dear friend. Please read his Blog from the Ohana pages with the link on VampiressRN's infirmary page. He'll keep you laughing.

Back to the Sacramento Crawl mugs.

I had used 5 jars of glaze so far and that helped me figure out how many more I would need for this project. I figured I needed 11 more so we went off to Alpha Fired Arts to buy them. When I took every jar off the shelf at Alpha and there were 11. I asked them how long before they would get more in because I could have figured it wrong. They said three weeks. I crossed my fingers.


I shake and stir the glaze and pour it into the mug.


I let it sit for 15 seconds and then I pour it back into the jar. Every so often I have to add distilled water to the jar because it becomes thicker.


This is a photo of a frustrating error. I poured the glaze into the mug and then due to fatigue I poured it out without a jar to catch it. I saved most of the glaze.


So I kept on going until


I did it again and this time it was on the table and I couldn't save the glaze. Sometimes you have to know when to quit.


I finished the rest the next morning.


It is Labor Day weekend so I'd better go do some labor! Cheers, Wendy

zerostreet I can always hope. I didn't show photos of them sitting upside down until no more glaze comes out. That is important because if you let glaze run into the bottom and it becomes too thick it can crack your cast just like turning your mold over too soon.

============================

The Sacramento Crawl mug continues.

Dan is my heavy lifter and he set up so I could start the glazing.


I put on my lovely glazing outfit.


The sun moved so Dan got me a hat. It kept falling off and I wasn't very happy.


I got this many done and then since I've had skin cancer and the top of my nose removed I needed to find a shady place.


So I moved over to the side of the shed and began to spray both the tiki mugs and the shed.


I was able to make these pretty photos.




Dan carried the mugs to the shed.


More mugs.


The rest of the mugs.


30 done and drying in the shed.


At the end of the day we had this to clean up. It managed to fly through the air and around the shed and to land on the tops of our garbage cans.


Cliff Hanger...does the glaze come off the shed? Stay tuned for tomorrows episode and we'll both find out! Cheers, Wendy

How am I supposed to sleep tonight?

You're not kidding about the Bionic Dan doing the heavy lifting: I believe you told me the mugs weigh in at four pounds each?

You two are amazing.

Wow, messy over-spray. If you've got the $ and the room, one of these;
http://www.spray-booth.com/small-paint-booths-c-41.html would solve a bunch of your spray glazing byproduct difficulties. You two are tiki making machines.

I think I see a holy image in the spray
Maybe you could sell the shed on eBay
