tikilongbeach thank you very much.

hang10tiki oh no the grey hair is back. At least you couldn't see my chest! We'll see yours soon.

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

I am so tired. I opened molds and worked clay today.

The Tiki Crate Statue was ugly in yellow and the words couldn't be read.


So I glazed it again.


Now it looks like this.




















I can make these in the mug version when I open the next Wish List.

======================================================================
I started with a mug that had the glaze popping off.


I covered it with a silver sparkle and it worked.


Then I covered a brown crawl mug and made it sparkle too.

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

A while back I made this set but Dan stole the volcano for another bowl.


So then I made a new volcano for the bowl and Dan wanted it but I said only if you give the other one back to me.


So he did and the little tiki volcano went on a shelf and Tiki Hula got the set for helping me with my computer.

Did you see the flaming photos he made?

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

Dan's Bastard Bob is done. The glaze came out the same as the vintage Suffering Bastard mugs so Dan's super happy.














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

In the morning we are saying goodbye to our cat and house sitter and heading to Las Vegas. We will be visiting
hang10tiki and his wife and also Frankie's with our good friends Frank and Sherry. I wonder if he'll buy a mug?

I hope you'll all post photos that keep the thread alive while we are gone.

Soon I'll be opening the next Wish List so think of some hard projects for me. Check out my Gallery page 1 and 9 for inspiration. No worries if no one orders from me I'll make my own projects for Mahalo Tiki to sell at his shop. So no matter what I'll keep busy and post on this thread.

Page One.

Page Two.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=35609&forum=21&start=120&149

Wishing you all a fun time while we go tiki hunting in hang10tiki's back yard. Cheers, Wendy

I am so happy to have my computer with me. This is the first time I've had a laptop and so here we are in Barstow and I'm posting. Cool...it is freezing in the desert tonight.


lunavideogames we will definitely visit Frankies and hang10tiki. Those will be our favorite things that we do but not in that order.

hang10tiki thank you it's fun when projects are done and out the door. See you tomorrow.

hang10tiki I've always wanted a photo of Dan and I and that sign. Dan likes it so much he wants me to print it and to hang it in the Buzzy Bedroom.

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

Well dang it, TC won't let me load photos. I guess those will have to wait until we get home.
A year ago we went through 9 antique stores in Bakersfield and only found a tiki salt and pepper. Today we went through the same 9 antique stores (some at large at 40,000 square feet) and what did we find? Another salt and pepper set. Then we traveled on to Barstow and I found a plastic Maori boat. I've never seen one like it before. I look forward to sharing the photo when we get home.

Tomorrow is our hang10tiki visit and I'll be sure to take lots of photos at their Honu Hideaway and yard.

Thanks for the visit, cheers, Wendy

Update:

The Dan-0 and Wendy show made a guest appearance in Las Vegas.
The Honu Hideaway was proud to welcome the stars of the show.
But first a little tour of the outside.



And yes, Wendy did look under the loin cloth...










And the newest addition to the Wendy and Dan-0 shelf is



























A few items from Dan-0


And a few from Wendy



And my favorite photo:




Thank you guys so much for blessing me with a visit.
It was great to see you and spend time with you both.
I'm glad you were able to come over for a visit.


Jon

I've been super busy at work and haven't had time to stop by but I apologize. (after all my nagging and all...)

But all I can say is WOW! Wow. I wish I could enlarge my font to really scream it. Whenever I think you can't out-do yourself you do! I love the rainbow of Bob's. Sorry they are causing you so much work but I love them. And I still love that glaze that I mentioned a couple of pages back, the pinkish/mauvish speckled glaze, I'd love to buy one of those from you.

I think the volcano with the faces came out absolutely fantastic!!!

I'm jealous that Hang10 got a visit from you and Dan. If you even make it to the NY/NJ area I'd love for you to visit me.

Everything else looks fantastic too! You and Dan do amazing work!!

hang10tiki and LoriLovesTiki you both make me blush, thank you.

Our visit with hang10tiki will I'm sure be the highlight of our time in Las Vegas. Jon your generosity will be spoke of for years to come. We had a great time. I was so impressed with the number of wonderful carved tikis that you have done. You are a great carver and a good friend.

I tried again and this time posting photos has worked. Here are the best that I took of our visit with hang10tiki.

We have just arrived and are hanging in the backyard.


This is a Frankoma War God carving that Jon did but the photo doesn't do it justice.


Jon gifted me with two beautiful glass tiki necklaces.


Dan was overwhelmed by all of his gifts of ceramics and music. WOW!


Look at this beautiful couple. 15 years and counting.


I got to hug Jonelle's man. We missed her a lot. We are ducking so my ceramics in his collection show.


In the impressive Honu Hideaway. The room is beautiful and so interesting.


A view from the other side of the room.



Jon you were right your phone takes great photos without a flash.


Thank you dear friend for your time. You made us feel very special. When you visit we'll do the same for you two.
=====================================================================================================================

Lori thank you for the invitation. You never know when that could happen. Maybe one day we'll meet up at Oaisis.

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


Fixing the boiled Tiki Bob necklaces.

When I'm working with ceramics I like to cushion them so that I don't chip them. So I save foam sheets.



First I used a dremmel to open up all the bubble.


Next I changed the bit to a larger size and I smoothed the paint. I had coated these with a mm of paint or more.


Back upstairs for another coat of paint.


This time I let them dry for more days and they were fine in the oven. I learned something. I just need to remember it!

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


I've finished the MadDogMike December 24th Swap Mug. Here's how it looks.















The inside is black with flat gold flakes.



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

It's time to turn in for the night. Yep we old timers need our sleep. The rest of Vegas can stay up and party but we'll be fresh in the morning.

We had a wonderful first day thanks to hang10tiki/Jon. I wish you all could have been there.

Happy Days, Wendy

It was great to see you guys...
Just wanted to let you know that
the orange Tiki Bob necklace I got for my neighbors daughter was a huge hit.
When she saw it she yelled "I love Bob"
Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Wendy and Dan, just remember, "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas..." Or at Jon's place.

Wendy, the Swap mug is stellar. Absolutely amazing, the detail, the co.or choices, perfection. I can't wait to get it in the Swap.

Thank you Jon and Tiki Ano. I just spent an hour loading photos and typing. Then the Wynn took over my computer and made me sign up for wify again and made me lose all my work. So I'm seeing cross eyed and trying to do it again.

We went to a lot of antique malls in Bakersfield and I found Elvis.


Dan was happy to find these shakers, they are new to his collection.


He practiced his snake charming skills.


Dan thought it was funny to not warn me of the impending bear attack.


We found a bunch of highly priced PNG tikis and left them there.


On the way out of town we saw a pool shop with tikis.


A fellow who works there carves them. I told him about Tiki Central.


We check into our hotel in Las Vegas and Dan turned on the TV. What did he see a tiki in the background of this


Two and a Half Men rerun. What were the chances that would happen?


Dan barely escaped the aliens in area 51.


Kele Dan spotted this in an antique mall and we thought of you.


The Ethel M chocolate factory has a cactus garden that they light up for the holidays.


We walked long enough to


have the sun go down


and the million lights to show up.


We stopped at Frankie's Tiki Room to check on a mug for a friend.


Running into Tiki Lee and having our visit with hang10tiki have made our trip.


A must stop when in Las Vegas.


All done and now it's time to turn out the lights and go to sleep. Tomorrow will be another fun day.

Cheers, Wendy
