Seems like there's always someone looking over my shoulder - this time that someone was looking over BOTH shoulders

King Bob by hang10tiki is so cute.
Tiki Hula I was looking over your shoulder too!

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

Right now as we prepare for the Wish List projects my days are a bit the same. We keep making tikis, bagging them and putting them on the shelf. On Sunday I borrowed Mahalo Tiki Peanut mug mold for hang10tikis project. I'll make one for Mahalo Tiki as a thank you for the loan.


Another couple of days worth of work. The molds were carried outside to dry but since it is now cold out a fan is used to help to dry them out. We have to watch the weather report to make sure there will not be any rain.


When they are dried and carried in we pour. Here we are about to use a pump to empty another Zombie Torch.


The next day all the items are removed from the molds.


They are lined up to wait to be cut and cleaned.


Four little Bob's all cleaned. When I look at each piece I see the Wish that will be fulfilled. One of these Bob's will be for a friend of Kele's.


For now they all go in the bag to wait.


First bowl needed it's rim cut off.


I lift it away.


I decided the bottom wasn't thick enough so I added some sticky clay.


I used an antique darning tool (wood) to move the clay around


and then I finished with my finger.


All done. This could be for one of dartharnies kids.


The next bowl.


I smoothed out all the mold lines.


The top rim needs to be removed. This bowl will become a three tiki cannibal bowl for either Mondo-by-the-bay, hang10tiki, Dan or maybe The Blue Kahuna. I will need to carve and mold these three tikis before I start.


Rim removed. I may remove even more of this top after I get more instructions from my wishers.


Back out to dry again. Some will go to storage as I finish and other molds will come out.


The Wish List is on track and chugging away. Cheers, Wendy

I'm having so much fun giving my art as prizes that I have another one up.

If you are the person who does view number 777,777 take a photo of the page to show my name and the number. Either post it on PM or on my thread and I'll contact you about your prize. Just one winner.

If you don't know how to post here then I'll share my email so you can send it that way.

Good Luck, Wendy

lunavideogames no photo yet. Maybe someone will photoshop one. It was 50 views away when I posted the contest. If I hadn't been busy with cleaning tikis I would have waited and tried to get the photo myself. I love numbers, my dad did too. For fun he wrote his weight down every morning and kept the numbers in a roll like the old adding machines. Oh well there is always 888,888 coming up next year if I'm lucky enough to have viewers.


hang10tiki I'm pouring and cleaning tikis for the Wish List every day. Once that's done I'll be on a mission to acquire all the information to make each project just right.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

The time has come for a one piece mold.


Remember this sculpt I did for Roge for his Chunk Lamps and statues? I wanted to mold it for making bowls etc..


So I added a layer of sculptors' clay to the back so that I would have something to use to secure the tiki when the plaster is poured in and also a part to grab to pull it out of the plaster.


Here it is with Roge's statues.


Mahalo Tiki sells these if you want one or more.


To start I got the right size board for the bottom of the mold. Then I made an oval of clay.


Dan set up for mixing the plaster.


I pressed the tiki into the clay and then pressed clay around the tiki so that it was totally secured.


Once the tiki was surrounded I used a wet paper towel to seal and smooth the clay.


All done? Nope.


Once this set was finished I looked at the tiki so see where there were undercuts. These are indented areas where the plaster would go and lock the tiki into the mold. There was one under the chin


and one under the arm.


So I filled them with clay. Yes this changed the shape of the tiki but when each one is poured and removed these areas can be carved right back with little difficulty.


Next the mold box was placed and the "snakes" run into all the joints. I also smooth them with a wet paper towel to prevent loosening which will allow leaks to form.


When we set up we also line a box with a plastic bag. If you make too much plaster you need someplace to pore it to be discarded later.


Look out he's armed and dangerous.


The one piece mold is poured.


The mess must now be cleaned up.


It's been awhile since you saw Dan at work. Please always wear a mask to save your lungs from clay and plaster dust.


Have a great night. Cheers, Wendy

I don't know how I'd know if I was your 777,777th view!

Anyway, I love that Moai and am too curious to see what that mold turns into.

ebtiki there are plans for Tiki Hula to use him for a volcano bowl. I'll make a bowl for Dan and I'll also make some wall plaques. I'm so glad you like him. Then he'll be on the next Wish List for orders.

hang10tiki there are not enough hours each day for what I need to do and we are retired...NOT!

LoriLovesTiki I read your name I picture you beautiful smile. When I looked at views it was 50 away from the 777,777. If I were a looker I'd have sat there and refreshed until it got close, then would have logged on until it reached the number and I'd take a photo and win the contest.

I must have done OK since you two like the Moai. Now I really have to make these casts.
==========================================================================================================

Thank you all so much for writing. That's what makes it fun for me.

Still prepping for the Wish List.

Another couple of days work.

Fill the molds.


Empty the molds.


Place the molds upside down overnight.


Open the molds.


Carry the molds outside to dry.


Waiting for cleanup.


Made from an original Frankoma War God mug that I molded (Joniece Frank gave me the copy write so it's OK that I did this).

Mahalo Tiki ordered some on the Wish List.


Cleaning mold lines is not fun. I cut them off


and then I scrap them off


and then in this case I add sticky clay over the place where the mold line ran.


I do this because some mold lines come back after bisque firing. This helps prevent that.


Water as sand paper.


I just love watching Dan clean up.


My man will work for tikis.


Thank you for the visit, cheers, Wendy

I just figured out that I'm a hand model and Dan's a full body model. It really looks like he does all the work. Wendy

I got mine in the mail today and I love it! I got the gray one that hangs down, just the way I like it. I can't believe how big it is. I took a picture of it without me. You wouldn't recognize me, my hair's up and I wore my glasses today instead of my contacts.

<3

Thanks Wendy!
