lunavideogames terrific. I think I know what you want for the figures. Do you have a favorite tiki face for the man?


hang10tiki good thought but if they were for me watching the step by steps initiated by lunavideogames would be really fun.

lunavideogames if you want me to hold the photos back I can do that. The best project I've ever worked on has been held back for a couple of years now. One day I'll be released to share it. The design was by BaconSM, that's all I can say.

AdOrAdam hi Adam, it is fun for me to see my work go up on eBay. I don't like to do sales. I sell my work to Mahalo Tiki and he does all the work to make a small profit on his end. When I open the Wish Lists people can order straight from me. When I open it I first announce it on the header for this thread. I open it for a few days and then I work for months to complete all the requests. I don't often do deadline work because I want to keep this fun for Dan and I. I work hard until I complete the orders.

Thank you for watching, that's what makes my day. I love reading the comments. Thank you for the link. I had fun seeing the prices in pounds. Welcome to my thread, I hope you'll post again.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_trksid%3Dp3984.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.X%2BWendy%2BCevola%2B%26_nkw%3D%2BWendy%2BCevola%2B%26_sacat%3D0%26_from%3DR40&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.XWendy+Cevola&_nkw=Wendy+Cevola&_sacat=0

Dan works for tikis. When I do my own Bob versions he gets to take what he wants and then the rest are for sale.

Big Kahuna he should have a lampshade. Dan's already run off with him. I'll ask if he wants that made. Good Idea.

gabbahey yep, I get asked to do the strangest things. That's what makes this fun.

lunavideogames I wonder too.

Atomic Tiki Punk but as a hula girl and a tiki man.

lunavideogames I've never seen the show but your idea will be easier.

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

A while back I made a Rum Barrel Bob and when it was finished Dan took it. I decided to make another one and to call it Tiki Rum Bob. The first one had a brown face so this one has a white one.

Carving.








After the bisque fire I choose these glazes for the body.


I outlined all the parts and painted the bolts too.



Smile!


Next I used a metal glaze and ran it close to the bolts. 3 layers for each color.


I let this dry before proceeding.


All done and ready to fire.


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

I put all of lunavideogames instructions together on one sheet and then I printed the photos he'd sent.


I started with the Ween mug by filling in the face of the crawl tiki.


I smothered him.


I started at one side and tried to form the spikes to match the photo.


When I finished for the day I sent photos to lunar and he "pointed" out that one spike was missing.


I've barely begun and I'd made a major error. So back to work!

Thanks for the visit, Wendy

Yeah I have heard of the "secret project" that you are working on. I don't know what it is, but my detective skills have given me an idea BaconSM and I are now friends from the Ms Pacman mug you made for us. Your mugs are bringing people together!

Please do keep the step by step pictures up. I don't think that they will see them, but it is not big deal if they do. I will send you an email about the information that you need from me.

Grog is back!!!!!!

Glad you are doing well buddy! You look so young without that beard, are you old enough to drink out of that mug?

I saw one of your Bob Shots sell on eBay last week for $45 shipped! You will have to hike up the price on those guys.

Welcome back!

What? GROG they only gave you one zipper? I guess I did a few too many on the mug. I agree that without the beard you look like a kid. I'm so happy it's over and you are on the way to hugging all the tiki girls again instead of all the nurses. I'm looking forward to seeing you again, better than ever.

hang10tiki I love that Album cover. Thank you.

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

Working on lunavideogames Ween mug I had to correct my mistake and add another spike. I started at the right side checking how the spikes matched the photo until I found where I went off. Then I cut off one side of a spike and added it to the other side.


When I had made room I added the missing spike.


Now the spikes match much better. When I carve them out they will match even more. I also adjusted the shape of the face to match. It's a bit of a warped face.


Side view.


Next I started on the back with the Ween creature.


I used very sticky clay. The whole time I have to use care not to introduce an air pocket or it will explode in the kiln.


This creature has more legs and parts than I can add but I did as many as I could.


Pretty much done here. Fuzzy photos.



I started preparing a Bob for the second mug for lunavideogames. I cut off his nose.


I filled in the face with gooey clay. I let this firm up and then I'll add more.


This is a fun project. I hope you all enjoy watching this take shape. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, looking great! Should we start calling you Weendy? Okay, sorry, couldn't resist. Luna, good looking projects, the recipients are going to be excited- and lucky, to be receiving these pieces.

I agree, Grog's nurses might be celebrating w/o him there anymore... Though hopefully they're celebrating drinking out of a few of Grog's mugs (and, for you, Grog, possibly arguing over who gets to use which mug???)

Hang10, love the Superman scar idea- and killer job on modding the album cover I posted!

TikiAno Dan and my dad always call me Weendy and all I can say is OH NO. We were in a record shop today so I looked up the Ween and saw they are a rock and roll group from Quebec. I get to learn so much when I take on these project.

hang10tiki I really really love being on an album cover with Dan and MadDogMike.

DooWop thank you. I live for these comments. I'm such a ham.

Slacks Ferret I think if I make more the copy write police will come and get me. Glad you like it.

lunavideogames I like being challenged and this may have been the hardest yet. Well the Jaguars holding the bowl with the Temple of the Jaguar in the center was super hard. I don't think any project could beat that one. So I'll just say this was the hardest in awhile.

zerostreet thank you so much for the wonderful moai head mug. I was happy to give you advice on ceramics so receiving this thank you mug was over the top nice of you. Dan will find a special place for it to be displayed. I'll answer questions for you forever because this was a lifetime gift. Wendy and Dan


It's so much bigger than I thought.




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

Back to the Ween for lunavideogames.

I had the shape right so now it was time to start carving out the face.


I finished the chin and started on the spikes.


After the bottoms of the spikes were pointed I did the top of the head with eyes.


Now it was time to cut off the top.


Ah much better.


I tweaked the creature some more making the highest fish up bigger.


Close up.


Now its back to work. Do I say that too often? Yep. Cheers, Weendy

Actually Ween is from Philly I think. They have an album called Quebec though They started in the 90s and were two guys, not really brothers but they called each other brothers. Gene and Dean Ween. They were never a mainstream band, but they had a huge following. I used to go to 3 or 4 of their shows per tour, and my friend that the mug is for would come with me. I saw them 50+ times live and I think every one of their shows were sold out. Some fun places I have seen them are, the Minnesota Zoo, Stubbs in Austin, the Joint in Vegas on Halloween, at the Wiltern in LA, just to name a few. Actually my wife and I played Stay Forever as our first dance at our wedding. Our wedding DJ knew one of the roadies, so in Anaheim they actually played Stay Forever and dedicated it to us.

Sadly Ween broke up last year. Hopefully they will get back together again. Gene went to rehab a few years back and then went kinda crazy and ended the band without consulting the other members. Sobriety is a hell of a drug

I really like the Mollusk on the back of the mug. It looks awesome, you did an amazing job! The Boognish face is turning out really well too. You are a true pro. I think Ween would be flattered and not upset about the mug. They would likely have you make more for them
