I find your mug rescues quite informative.
Before seeing your thread, I would have thought that a mug that got damaged was done for.
But you are the mug doctor! (mug whisperer? lol)

Looking good, Wendy. Love that Lotus glaze! It looks like lichen covered rock to me.

WaikikianMoeKele I always wanted to be a doctor so thank you.

hang10tiki how about calling me to the Honu Hideaway?

TikiTacky that's one of my favorite new glazes. A lichen is an algae and a fungus living in a symbiotic relationship which means that they not only like each other they are mutually beneficial to each other...just like Dan and I. One of my tour guide lines at Yellowstone National Park in the 1970's.

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

Good Morning. I'm still glazing away so that I'll fire with a full load.

Many projects, some have been glazed and some are in the works.


Here's Dan's Bastard Bob.
He requests that the black looks as much like the original as possible. So I've chosen Pottery Coat by Mayco.


Three layers of Black and white. Simple.


I let this dry, then I refilled both sides again and let it dry overnight.








Upside down is always important or areas get missed.


Now he waits.

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

When we visited kingstiedye he had put aside two lamps that Dan has longed for. In his new home he didn't have a place for them so Dan was able to purchase them at long last. The Tiki Tony lamp had the base split in two from when the tiki was screwed on. So here are the steps I took to repair it.

First I glued these two halves together with wood glue by Elmer's. I used wide tape to keep the halves together as it dried overnight.


The next day I filled in the cracks with Elmer's wood filler on the top

and on the bottom.


I did this again since wood filler shrinks as it dries.


I had Dan sand it one both sides and then I found matching paint and I began with the bottom.

I did not paint over the
autographed for Bullet/kingstiedye on the bottom.



I mixed four colors together to come up with one that was similar to the Tiki Tony's color and I painted the top.


After this was all dry I sprayed on a matt finish to protect the acrylic paint.


All done Dan found a perfect place for it in the jungle room.


One more view.


Now it's time to turn off the lights. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki we get to show Bullet/kingstiedye/Brook the lamp on Friday. He and his wife are coming for a visit.

LoriLovesTiki good to hear from you.

WaikikianMoeKele its really fun to save something even when its not alive.

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


The other day I bought a small pillow. It needed a pillow case. In a drawer I had a small piece of fabric that I bought years ago. The two fit perfectly together.

So easy. I sewed the cloth into a bag shape.


Then I hemmed the end.


All done except for going through the wash.


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

New volcano with two tiny tikis.

I picked the volcano's color.


Three layers.


I picked the tikis colors in Concepts underglazes so they wouldn't run.


Close up.


Nest I ran some red lava down the sides


and in the top pot where a flaming sugar cube or dry ice can go.


Now it's waiting for it's time in the kiln.


It's fun to be on the final steps of these projects. Cheers, Wendy

That pillow won the lottery, getting that pretty case.

Love the volcano with tiny tikis painted.
I didn't realize that the smaller tiki's tongue
was sticking out until it was painted.

This isn't just the happiest thread on TC, it's educational, too.

WaikikianMoeKele thank you so much for posting. I love reading these messages. It was fun making more tiny tikis. I think LoriLovesTiki got me started on that with her tiny Bob.

TikiAno it is really fun having so many tiki artists making cool items. Tiki Tony's lamp is the only one we have seen. I hope there are more out there.

LoriLovesTiki me too.

Professor G I was just looking at photos of you cooking on your facebook page. I could really enjoy your cooking!

hang10tiki you too!

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

Hi Friends, I had the best excuse for missing yesterday. Tiki Hula came over and fixed all the glitches on my computer. I learned so much from him so fast that I was beaming from ear to ear. All of you who know computers well are going to enjoy life so much. I'm lucky to have him nearby. We had fun and when we were done Dan drug him back into the jungle room.


On Wednesday we went to MAHALO TIKI's to see my art hung. We were also able to see some of Roge's chunk lamps for sale.
If you come to the Sacramento area this is our only tiki store and a must to visit.

Here's some of my scrap art up near the ceiling.


Roge's chuck lamps. I think I'll go add these to Marketplace.


I just missed Mary's smile.








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

This is the Sacramento Crawl mug converted to a Ween mug as a wedding gift from lunavideogames to Nate and Keri.

I started with the insides of the mugs. I'm also working on his second mug.


I started the outside with the mug upside down. Glaze layer 1.


Fist layer done.


Glaze layer two.


Layer three started.


Now that the three layers of brown glaze are done I scrapped some off of the raised Ween face.


After scraping I used a wet paper towel to take off the rest of the brown glaze.


Next I did the same on the back exposing the bisque of the fish and mollusk.


Next I glazed both of them 3 times each.


lunavideogames wanted the Ween face to be outlined in red so that's what I'm painting on here.


All done.


I suggested that we put the fish in water. To make that blend in I used this glaze that had brown spots as if the water has floating seaweed.


All done and ready to fire.


My projects are stacking up for the kiln. It won't be lone now.

Thank you all for the visit, I appreciate them, Wendy
