hang10tiki has GROG shown up yet???

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

kingstiedye returns. A couple of years ago Brook/kingstiedye and his wife Sandy moved and we lost touch. But a few days ago he gave us a call and the next day we jumped in the car and went for a visit. During the time we were apart he transformed their new living space into a tiki paradise. We had just fun. There were more rooms than I documented here. What I was most impressed with was his pendant collection. He found a way to perfectly display it. We had a great time.

He is unofficially a member of Duck Dynasty. He grew his beard in 2 years. It took less time for him to stack tikis to surround his doorframe.


As an avid sports fan he has a lot of his collection to view during the commercials.


Even near his front door there is a wonderful collection.


It's really fun for me to see art that I've done in collectors homes. I did a face of Gecko and a rat fink for him years ago.


An unusual ceiling allowed Brook to hang pendants all the way around.


He has them in wood, bone and jade.


There are other areas as well, this is above the TV.


Brooks wife made a "live story" quilt for Brook that has all of his interests and milestones commemorated.


Close up you can see the tikis.


On one of his Gecko shelves he has my Bloody Maori. When he got it he came to my home to have it autographed (my first) and that is how we met.


Two Bosko's we'd never seen before.


Brooks favorite area, TV sports and tikis.


I posed with Brook while he held the 2012 Sacramento Crawl mug I made.


As we left we passed under more of the awesome pendants.


We love visiting with Brook and next week he'll bring Sandy to our home for a visit.

See you soon Brook, Wendy

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

I like to think of this mug as having been made from nothing. It isn't a tiki that I've carved to make it fancy. It started as a plane tube and by carving it turned into an album cover for the December swap.

I glazed the inside in glossy black and gold.
On the outside I used pottery coat a flat black.


I let it sit until it dried.


Using wet paper towels I removed glaze from the surfaces that I wanted exposed.


Now I let this dry again for a day.














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

I hope you all had a fun Halloween, cheers, Wendy

WoW! kingstiedye has an amazing house & amazing collections!
It's so cool that you got to see your creations displayed in such a wonderful setting.
Album Cover Swap mug is progressing nicely. I have finally chosen a cover & started now.
Our Halloween was quiet, but pleasant. Great pics on FB of one of my granddaughters & youngest grandson. (they live in Michigan)

Kingstiedye has a huge collection...awesome

Nope, didn't see grog yet...
But
We are on a road trip to San Diego
Stopped by the China Inn for lunch in PB to have a few tiki drinks
Recommended by Max at Taboo island
I saw something that made my think of you
A 4 foot ceramic post on the bar
Now that would make a great HUGE mug
Off to the Bali Hai at 7pm to meet up with a couple friends
Mai-Tais to flow





The big bamboo ceramic post, I thought of a Wendy massive mug...





Suffering Bastard


Mai-Tai

WaikikianMoeKele he does and its in a lot of rooms.
I'm so happy that you found a great project for the swap.
Can you link me to your fb page?

Clarita thank you for being a welcome guest and writing on my thread party. I appreciate it.

hang10tiki where's GROG???
It's fun to share kingstiedye's collection with you all. He gave me permission to post the photos.
A road trip to San Diego? I want to go too. We love the Bali Hai.
In what city is this China Inn located?

Not a single Halloween post ): of you all in your costumes.

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

I finished the glazing of the December Swap mug.


Not a perfect match but at least it shows where the inspiration came from.


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

Mahalo Tiki just hung 9 Scrap Art paintings that I've done prior to starting my tiki art. These photos were flipped by Tiki Central and are upside down. I'll have to visit the store soon to take some more photos. It's wonderful to have Nelson and Mary to sell my art.

Each of these are done with hundreds of torn bits of paint. I could never wipe off a palette and waste the paint. Instead I let it dry and then pealed it off and stuck it on a canvas. It took years but in the end I would have a painting.


From the opposite end.


Here's a section close up.





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

Night off. Have fun and I hope you'll be back soon, Wendy

Yeah, I think I asked you about him to too just after the crawl. I hope he is doing well and I'm glad he moved into a space big enough for his collection. He has an amazing one! Say aloha for me when you see him.

Wendy,
We received our Sac Crawl mug in the mail safely--so happy to add this tiki to our collection. Thanks for offering sales to people outside of the area. We certainly appreciated you shipping it to us across the many miles!

VampiressRN we got his ears burning and he called. It's wonderful to have him back. I'm so happy you like the mug.

TikiHula I think you just said hello to him because he's just posted.

hang10tiki oh thank you so much. They are weird to begin with but even weirder upside down. I'm so happy you are a fixer!

kingstiedye you are a doll. Thank you for posting here. I hope you'll have fun on TC with all your friends.

mondo-by-the-bay I'm so happy to hear it made the journey safely. We don't mind shipping at all.

MadDogMike look how cute you two are. She got her man!!! Give her a hug for us if the warden will allow it.

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

I love shopping for glaze. Each time I find something new I have to do glaze tests. That way I know how it will look on my projects. I just did these.


=================================================================
Now it's time to glaze my delux hula girl. I use Concepts where are under-glazes that actually have a gloss after firing without painting a clear coating on them.

Each color must be applied 3 times. First flesh.


Black for the hair.


Red for the flower and waistband.


Yellow for the skirt and flowers stamen.






Pink for the nipples.


After this fires I will use enamel to add the face and other details to the skirt etc.

===============================================================
Aaron Brothers was having a canvas sale, 2 for 1. So I bought a canvas that perfectly fit the frame that HB Tiki gave to me as a present. Now I'll start a painting this winter. I have two black velvets ready too. Thank you HB.



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

I hope your Sunday is warmer than ours. I like 80 and it's 60 outside with a fast wind. Cheers, Wendy

Your paint mosaics are beautiful!

The delux hula girl is looking great!

60s sounds great, our temp today was in the low 40s with gusting cold winds.

I'll send you a pm with fb info.

hang10tiki thank you, I hope she stays that way.

WaikikianMoeKele thank you. I'm looking forward to seeing you work on your album swap art.

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

A few years back I made mugs based on the Lanai in San Mateo, CA. There are 3 tikis and the Hawaiian words on the bottom under each one say Eat Drink and be Merry. Well one of them that I made for Dan had the glaze start to pop off. If any of you have anything I've made that had problems please contact me so I can fix it.

Here's how I fixed Dan's mug.

I love old dental tools.


I just tried my best to pick off any glaze that would come off. Then I rubbed it all over with a wire brush.


I scrubbed the mug and let it dry overnight. Then I picked a grey sparkle glaze to use.


I painted three layers


on all the tikis.


I turned it upside down and checked all the tikis for missed areas. Then I filled in the words with this same glaze and touched up the bottom rim with the satin red.


Now it waits until it is kiln time.

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

While I'm on a roll I got the last crawl mug that I hadn't glazed and covered it in the same sparkle glaze.









Then I got one of the glaze test crawl mugs that looked bad and covered it with another color. It's really easy to cover and existing glaze with another one. It's risky because if the glaze is too thick it can run but it also can make a whole new color.


This is what I choose for the mug.


Starting.


I just did two layers since it had three in brown.


That's it for today. Cheers, Wendy
