LoriLovesTiki, you touched my heart. I love sharing. I have learned a lot by making mistakes. I hope I can eliminate them for everyone else.

hang10tiki you are my rock.

WaikikianMoeKele we sure do try to play some each day. Last night we took a walk to buy brown rice. It's good to have a goal.

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

Thank you all for posting so I could answer, Wendy

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

I've finished off the volcano by carving the little tikis.


I started off with this smooth volcano which is now leather hard.


I used big grain sandpaper and pressed and twisted it all over the surface.


My first little tiki is similar to Mort's in San Diego.


Next I did a Moai.


The sculpt is finished and now it will slowly dry in a plastic bag placed over it loosely.


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

We are getting ready for the Sacramento Crawl activities. The crawl mugs are in the trunk of the car ready for deliveries at each stop.

Please bring cash. $70 each for your pre-ordered mugs. We'll do out of town shipments next week after our flu shots. Get them if you can, they work!

Thank you for your visit, Wendy

Holy cow! The Art Swap mug's detail is amazing, I almost don't want to see it glazed. Okay, I do, but not really.

THe Volcano piece is great, too. I always have trouble carving heads from raw forms, look forward to your step by steps for direction/ inspiration.

Thanks!

Ditto on what Hang10tiki said...

really opens one's mind to the possibilities.

tikilongbeach I'm beginning to like carving tiny tikis. I'm happy you like these.

TikiAno you new tool will work well for carving small tikis and so does a tooth pick or other wooden point. Water and a brush to remove bits of clay and you are on your way. Glad you like them. Your thread has me interested in press molds.

hang10tiki you and I have so many ideas and not enough time. I'm enjoying your swap art coming to life.

WaikikianMoeKele when we go on tiki hunts I also look at all the kitchen tools to see what I can use with clay. Today is a great day with everyone giving me thumbs up.

============================================================================
Thank you all so much for giving me a lift and inspiration to keep on going.
============================================================================

Back to the MadDogMike Album Cover swap mug step by steps.

After using water to smooth my carving I let it dry. Some detail is lost when smoothing this way so I go back over my work with a wooden pick and do a bit more carving.


Before I bisque fire I'll sand and fine tune all my work again. So this is not totally done.


I used the same tool to outline the lettering and then to make scratches in the background.


Then where I wouldn't bump into any carvings I used this tool to continue the scratching around the backside.


Done for now. I'll finish my other projects and then I'll fine tune and bisque fire them all together.













Rough bottom will be sanded too.


Cheers, Wendy

Wendy! You like the miniature tikis!?!

My other major obsession (besides tikis) is miniatures!

& I will start looking at the kitchen utensils (oddly, I'm thinking of a particular scene from "Stripes" lol)

We need to pool our resources and get Wendy another option. Smartphone? Tablet?

Sorry about your pc that is sad news.

Is there a pc technician in the house that can troubleshoot her problems???

lunavideogames Tiki Hula said he would come repair my computer on Monday. Then this morning I turn it on again ( re-boot #15 ) and it was fine. I'm worried that I've been hacked. But meanwhile I can post again. This dang computer is only a year old and should be fine. Thank you for your concern, you are a sweetheart.

LoriLovesTiki The SPATULA treatment!!! Always.

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

Just before the crawl began we had Moai Mike and Polynesian Pattie come over for a quick tour.

Mike brought us a mug he had Bosko make for his 60th birthday.


I sold them their mugs from my car trunk.


They flew in for our crawl from Southern California. So we showed them the jungle room


and the tiki hut of mugs.




I think our crawl is so much fun that it's like Christmas morning each day. I woke up at 5 am and I wish it were starting right this minute. Instead I'll share some photos with you.


Our day began in Modesto at Minnies bar and restaurant. This was built by the same man who built the Stockton Islander. It was named for his wife and has never closed down. We had an excellent meal and at the end Diane and CDTiki treated everyone to their meals and drinks. Thank you two that was over the top!


This root ball tiki is by Vic of Jungle Trader out of Turlock. It is out back of Minnie's.


As the day began are group of small but with each stop it grew.


In this photo is CDTiki, Diane, myself and Dan.


===========================================================================================
Our second stop was at the home of CDTiki-Duane and his wife Debbie. It's a high end tiki art gallery.


Speaking of ends CD was comparing his mug to Dan's but dressed you just can't tell.


Diane was pouring drinks on the patio


while Dan and Abstract Tiki chilled by the pool.


Vic, Wendy, Tiki Cleen and Tiki Hula-Mike


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

This stop was at The Blue Kahuna's-Gregory's home. I continued to sell my mugs on the street. This is Marone tiki and his love Debbie.


Once inside I found Choptop and The Blue Kahuna.


Debbie, Marone Tiki and Choptop were strange at the same moment!


I didn't get a great photo of his tiki bar. I was trying to show that he has a bunch of my ceramics in his collection.


====================================================
On the way to the last stop we swung by our home again so that Vic and John who flew in from Colorado for the crawl could see our home. This is inside the man cave that Dan built.



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

Last Stop of the day was at the home of Dr. Tiki Mojo-Dave and his wife Eva. The home was over the top with tiki everywhere. I am so sad I missed getting a photo of Dave. Help me out Ohana.



Deb and Sandy.


Vic-Jungle Trader and Sean-Chief Bartender.


Cathi, Brenda's Tiki Hut and Eva.


Eva, wife of Dr. Tiki Mojo and cloudmonkey.


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

I feel so lucky to have gotten my computer back for now. I may have to get a tune up and to have it checked for hacking. Meanwhile I'll leave it on and post as often as I am able.

Thank you all for joining us on Day one of the crawl. There are two more days to go and I can't wait for more hugs. Cheers, Wendy
