Medford will get one inch of rain today. So we'll spend it at my sister's and hopefully get to hold the new baby boy.
We searched every antique store in Medford and Talent yesterday and found one shell lei and a hula girl cup in brown. Medford is now a tiki free zone. I hope you are having a good time with friends or family. Cheers, Wendy

Hi Friends, it was a beautiful baby that we held and a rain free drive home. One of my sister's rentals had a tree crash down ruining her fence and hitting a car. We had no mishaps and are home safe. Now we'll rest up and begin again tomorrow. A new month starts. I have some photos saved up to show and I'll start posting tomorrow. Thank you all for the visits, Wendy

Atomic Tiki Punk I will work until my wrinkles have wrinkles.
=============================================================

This is the last of the Tiki Bob's to be glazed. I have fun doing PNG Bob's and here's another one.

I've started with a dark brown and I did three thick layers.


After it dried I scrapped off all that I could from the flat surfaces leaving it in the grooves.


Next I choose a Courtyard glaze which always looks old.


I covered the whole mug again with three layers.


After it dried I scraped it off of the face.


Then I used Concepts which is an underglaze (this means it shouldn't move or run) and painted the face parts white and the eyes and mouth black.


Now I have them all ready to fire.
=================================================================================================================================================

Now it is time to start on the MadDogMike Christmas Album inspired Swap art.

A while back I had poured a big mug and then never got back to make it into something. Now MadDogMike posts this album cover and I knew that the mug shape was perfect for this project.

This is the album.


This is the completely dried out mug.


To make it easier to carve and to prevent a lot of dust I stuck it in a bucket of water.


I carved the information on the bottom and then cut out the woman from a printed photo of the cover.


I held her in place while I used a wooden pick to carve the outline.


Even a tiny point can remove a good amount of clay.


Now I used a razor blade to cut out the paper on the inside of the arms.


I didn't do a great job because one bracelet was so white and that part got cut out too.


I was careful and drew the correct outline while holding the photo in place again. So now I have the first part done.


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

It's great to be back. I need to unload my camera and also to post these photos again on the swap thread. Sorry, instant replay in the works.

Cheers, Wendy

Good Morning.

Something's Fishy Bob, June Bob, Worry Bob, Bamboo Bob and Intoxicated Bob.








Tiki Rum Bob.








PNG Eyed Bob






Time to get back to work as always, Wendy

I dig that song "5 Guys named Bob." The PNG and Rum Bob are my faves of this set, Wendy! (well, okay, the other Bobs look great, too).

Love the step by step Swap Mug photos- I have to get started on mine!

Oh you got to go to Oregon, I'm jealous. Lived in Ashland for awhile, want to go back and visit

Mugs are looking great as usual.

Another bevy of beautiful Bobs from wonderful Wendy!

I'm really drawn to the PNG eyed Bob. He'd fit right in at Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room.

Those are some cool Bobs! I also like PNG Bob a lot but I can't believe how well Bamboo Bob turned out either. The colors are amazing! Awesome work.

hang10tiki they just come out of nowhere.

TikiAno I love your new coasters.

Badd Tiki Oregon is special. We had lots of time alone on the freeways.

WaikikianMoeKele I was happy all the messing with glazes worked out.

MadDogMike I sure do like your pirate ship coins.

lunavideogames glazes are fun and scary.

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

I thank each of you for your positive comments about this batch of Bob's. Most will not make it out of the house because Dan works for Tikis. You all keep this fun for Dan and I.

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

I'm going to take time here to post the highlight photos of our trip to Oregon to see the new baby in our family. He is my great-great-nephew Jagger.

I am always fascinated by this extinct volcano that is near Mount Shasta.


Next door to our hotel there was an antique sale. There wasn't a single tiki but plenty of dogs that we got to pet.


Five days old and beautiful.


We made it to every antique shop and mall in Medford and Talent and this is all we found. The plastic tiki will be a gift for a friends grandson. The mug is a new addition for Dan's collection. The necklace was a real work of art.


We had a perfect trip with a fun visit with family.

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

lunavideogames second mug has been a challenge. Trying to make it resemble the vampire from Buffy's show hasn't worked really well. There are some more steps to be added today to pull it together but here's how it is today.

Treg is having this mug made for a woman so it was best to add a top. Here I've added straps.


It works best to make things like flowers thick and once they have firmed up to go back and to carve them thinner.


The face was still too human and needed adjustments. Every time Dan brings me moai's to look at I change the nose or chin. This tiki has had major surgery.


I lengthened the chin and added an ear.


Today I will make his forehead larger.


Friends.


I keep the mug wrapped in plastic so that it will not dry up and I can keep changing it until it is done.


I look forward to your comments and visit, Wendy

Hi Wendy,

I've been busy since school started and haven't had time to post but I've been trying to keep up.

I love LOVE the purplish color on the Worry Bob but don't understand the name. Is he spoken for?

The woman and the Moai are looking great!!!
