Wendy, look forward to seeing the crate mug/ statue re-fired, as well as the others. The rainbow of Bobs look killer, too!

For helping Wendy with her computer work, she generously gifted me one of her awesome bowls and a very large and cool volcano insert. Here's photos of it in use. I tried 151 first but the flame is too small and transparent blue to look very impressive. So 91% rubbing alcohol is just the thing for a big effect Mahalo Dan and Wendy!

I can't stand the suspense of the kiln opening so I wait for a few posts down the road from the last one I read. The Bob pendents are beautiful. Tell Noma her mugs are very pretty too, I especially like the fishy one. Really dig how the Buffy Vampire mug is turning out.

TikiHula- great photos, I wonder if that's what it looks like inside Wendy's kiln

I was just organizing the photos to share and I erased every one since my other computer broke down plus all those from the summer. I'm trying to get them back from the backup and it's really hard to do. It looks like I need Tiki Hula here STAT!

Wendy


TikiAno as soon as I can find the photos!

hang10tiki I'm happy with them too.

WaikikianMoeKele Tiki Bob and I thank you.

TikiHula Wow, earth must have started out like this. Does this kind of buring leave a residue? When can you come over and save my data? I'm going to unplug the back up so it doesn't erase what it has saved to far.

tigertail777 it's hard for me to wait to post and now I have this horrible problem.

hang10tiki I hope not.

Ack! I hope someone can help you get your photos restored. Did you have a backup?

Thank you Tacky Tiki. I think your push for me to get drop box is going to save the day.

When my first computer broke and I had to turn it in for a month long repair, I still don't have it, I decided to not erase any of my photos from my two cameras. That way when the computer came back I could load them and have both computers up to date.

So today I spent 4 hours organizing all the photos up until today that were in the cameras. I really don't want to do it again. So if drop box works I'll drag and drop all these files and then pull them into place on the other computer. Then I'll grab all the parts that I lost and drop them and pull them onto this computer and then I'm all set.

I do have the backup hard drives on both but it asked me for file names and could I remember them close enough to find them, NO. I'll need a lesson from Tiki Hula. Anyway I like how I organized each file today better so the end result made me a happy camper.

So on to the show!

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

I liked this shirt and the man let me photograph it to use on a mug in the future.


Dan likes to call me Goofy, maybe he's right.

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

Marone Tiki/Monty set up a Tiki Tuesday at the Mandarin Restaurant. It's fun there because they serve drinks in Libby mugs. The guys said they taste better that way. THis is Dr. Tiki Mojo and Aloha Ha Ha/Lloyd.


Me/Wendy/danlovestikis and Eva. She and Dr. Tiki Mojo just moved to my town. Oh Yeah that's fun.


Marone Tiki/Monty and wendylovestikis/Dan


Rugby Matt/Matt who got his #2 of 50 Sacramento Crawl mug.


Tiki Hula/Mike/Computer Tech who will save me soon.


We had a great time and plan to go on December 10th to the same building as the Zombie Hut in the Lanai Shopping center.


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

Today I'll start by finishing off lunavideogames two mugs from out of the kiln to completion. As if I'd not been here all day already!

This is what the mugs look like out of the kiln. The Ween mug is finished the Buffy Vampire with Moai is not.


I used Liquitex Glossies to add detail to the Moai's rock and face and to most of the Hula Vampire girl.


Close up.


Setting the enamel in the home oven.


Black Velvet Gallery photos.












I'm going to rest now and I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for the visit. Wendy

Wendy--that picture of you in your hat is amazing--and those lucite & abalone seahorses are INCREDIBLE! My mother collected similar pieces and luckily, I still have a few. Love the hula girl in the kiln worshipping all those fired-up technicolor Bobs!

lunavideogames I hope your friends will send us some photos soon. I'm looking forward to your posting them. You are very welcome.

mondo-by-the-bay the entire bathroom has these as wall"paper". I like them too but we didn't have them when I was a kid.

hang10tiki I sure wish this problem would go away. Two computers now and no change. My old computer with Windows XP was fine. Window 8 just doesn't work for tall photos. Thank you for the fix.

hang10tiki I would love to go to a party like that. It would be very flattering. Maybe one day. I've saved the photos in my Photoshop file so that I won't lose track of them. Thank you so much, that was fun.

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

Even the making of the Tiki Bob necklaces has a lot of steps.

Out of the kiln they are carried to the garage.


Dan puts on his mask and dremmels down all the sharp spots on the back from the spikes that held them as they fired.


I noticed that the glaze didn't retain a sharp edge and blended with the white so


I took them all upstairs to paint them with Liquitex Glossies.


I pour it in and then


move the paint around until the entire area is covered with a thick layer.


A few hours later they are all done and drying.


The instructions say wait 24 hours then bake in the oven. I should have waited more days.


Horrors, the paint was not dry and it boiled.


So now 2/3rds of the necklaces need to be sanded and painted again.


I hope to get to that project today.

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

Now it was time to finish off the Hula Woman.

When she came out of the kiln she had 2 small specks of black on one knee. Sometimes the glazes with crystals can spit. It hit her knee. So I turned them into a few flower tattoos.


Next I started on her face.


Then I aged her skirt.


All done she dried overnight and then baked in the house oven.


Now for her black velvet photo shoot.








It didn't take long for my "will work for tikis" husband to run off with her.


This bowl I made a while back and it disappeared into the tiki jungle room too.


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

That's it for today. I'm off to the garage to keep on playing with clay.

Check out Tiki Toni's thread. She lives near me and soon she'll be here for a visit.

PS hang10tiki you get a hug for all the fun you bring to this thread
