Dan had a great haul! That Cook Island tiki is my favorite piece. I could wrap him in a blaket and bring on the plane as my "baby!"

hang10tiki you sure know how to find the right image for my activities. I'm always repairing things for Dan. See below.

LoriLovesTiki Dan feels that the tikis are his babies and I'm their doctor. See Below.

Dan bought a reduced price Tiki Roots Rocka mug. It had an air bubble blow off part of its base. I built a new one but I wasn't able to match the paint perfectly. Close enough for Dan. Now the mug was stable on the shelf for display.

You can save mugs for display with Elmer's wood putty. Build it up and let it dry, sand it. Repeat. Let it dry overnight.


The next day you can carve the detail into the hard putty.


Mixed the paint as close as I could to the glaze


and covered the putty and let it dry.


============================================================
The next mug had a large chunk broken out of the top.
Same procedure. The paint matched better this time.



_

















========================================================
Dan's last request was for a bucket mug that he'd never seen before. The face has lots of chips.
Same procedure.
















I wiped off some paint with a paper towel.





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

If you repair something feel free to post it here on my thread.

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

I got a lot done today. I'll share more tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

That's so cool Wendy! The second mug (Stacey sold that at the marketplace)
that you fixed up is looking great as are the others, do the repairs last as long as the life of the mug?

Atomic Tiki Punk when just displayed they will last forever. But here's the scoop on use.

The mug Stacy sold for $5 (irresistible) had a lot of damage on the top edge so I would say that it should never be used.


Your message reminded me that I hadn't fixed the paint on the bucket mug. This mug can be used as long as it's not put in a dishwasher or scrubbed. No one would do that to a bucket mug anyway. This was a real $5 treasure. In this photo it is still wet, it will dry Matte or flat.


The Tiki Roots Rocka mug was a 1/1 hand built mug. So much work and such a beautiful mug that it needed to go into a collection. It could have been left as it was but since Dan will just be looking at it I leveled the bottom. The putty is not as strong as ceramic so it should just be left on display.


So for the most part these types of repair are cosmetic and not structural.

Thanks for asking. Cheers, Wendy

Hi Dan and Wendy!
As always, great visiting with you two at the ITMP. Thank you very much the support, and now, awesome fix-it tip.
I had a corner blow off of one of my lamps and that method looks perfect! Oh, there's so much to learn.
I also love that Scootiki tiki.

Wendy, maybe I need to start covering all of the mugs I make with Elmer's to cover them up (might improve them???. Great repairs. Sorry I missed you guys (and everyone else) at Don's, been in the middle of a whirlwind few weeks of work. Too many distractions, not enough tiki.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS - I LOVE ALL THE MULTI-COLORED LIGHTS THAT KEEP POPPING UP IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.


TikiRootsRocka we always look forward to running into at the events. We are missing the Tong Hut tomorrow. Just too much to do. I started my tiki career by learning to repair Dan's mugs.

hang10tiki woo hoo I got photoshopped and I loved it. Thank you. Did you stretch my smile bigger?
You sure have found a lot of stuff. I keep going to tiki finds to see what you captured for your collection.
I think I see another tiki room in your future!

Thank you so much for the video montage of Dan and I. It's the first CD to play on my new laptop. I snapped photos as I watched it for a second time.







LoriLovesTiki he does so love his tikis and his soup too. See below.


VampiressRN just one a day is all her asks. I hope you are feeling better.

TikiAno I always hope there's another tiki event coming up that we can make it too. I love seeing everyone and Dan loves shopping. I'm still learning how one day at a time. You are doing great, keep at it.

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

Today I took Dan to lunch so he could have his favorite bowl of soup. That's my bowl in front.


When we got home he went to work on the dining room which is slowly becoming tikified.




===================================================================================
It's Christmas time so I have to work on Christmas gifts for my great-niece and great-nephew along with all the tikis.
Since glazing tikis and glazing for the kids is kind of the same I want to show how I did them. These match the bowls and tumblers I made for them the past two years.

At the same time I re-glazed a couple of crawl mugs, one for Tiki Hula and also his volcano.










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

All of the Paint your own stores start with a pre-fired ceramic that you glaze. This time I bought two plates that I glazed at home. First I washed the plates and then while they were still damp I started the project. Moist bisqued wear will grip the glaze tighter.

I started by writing on the bottom with a special under-glaze pencil. Then I covered the words with clear glaze and then the entire bottom with the glaze to match the rest of their sets.


When the bottoms were dry a couple of days later I started an edge design on Nathan's plate.


Now on the front of the plate I added the same design.


Next I filled it in with red by pouring it in the middle and dragging it into place. This works because the plate is moist.


Finished the glazing so then I decorated it with writing and designs with French Dimensions. It comes in a squeeze bottle.


Loaded with Tiki Hula's mug, and some Zombie Torch flames. I'm hiding his last name with my finger.


Fired.


Stepping back. I also glazed Samantha's dish first with one color


and then the next.


I used the French Dimension's to write her name and to decorate her plate.


In the kiln with Tiki Hula's volcano.


Fired.


Ready for Christmas dinner.


Each year they have brought the pieces I've made them before. I hope they do that again.


I'll be back to tiki's on here tomorrow. Thank you for the visit. Cheers, Wendy

Thanks for clarifying that! I thought Dan was having a bowl of soup with his bowl of soup!

Awesome tips for mug repair Wendy, thanks!

I admired Dan's Coral Reef mugs with custom glazes so much that I requested my Coral Reef mug get customized too. I thought Wendy would say "Well, maybe after the first of the year". But instead she had room in her next firing and graciously let me pick one of her many glazes and did the makeover and I love it!



Wendy has photos and details of what we worked on today, but it was really fun, and quite the challenge for someone as un-artistic as I am...

Mahalo to you both for everything today!

zerostreet I think hang10tiki made a photo of Dan's dream lunch. I hope you never need to repair a mug but if you do...

TikiHula perfect timing. I really enjoyed our play day. Dan said it gave him the opportunity to go out and to shop for my Christmas present. He said it's coming from OSH hardware. My man knows me well.

See you next Sunday for the next step. You are very welcome.

hang10tiki that was a beautiful photo of Dan and his perfect lunch, thank you. We love the CD.

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

A few days ago I printed all the Wish List orders from my PM's and emails. Then I organized them and even printed helpful photos. I am working on casting the basic mugs and bowls that I will alter. I'm almost done with that part. Maybe 8 days more and then I'll start to customize.

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

I tape Househunters international and the show was about finding an apartment in Italy. Dan was really quick to see a New Zealand tiki on the wall. I ran it back and took these photos.



========================================================================
Tiki Hula aka Mike came over to work on my computer. After he fixed it I had him take over Dan's duties to help me pour a mold in the garage. Here he is vigorously shaking up the slip.


While I worked on a Zombie's Torch mug He went to work on a volcano in the center of a bowl I had cast ahead of time. This is one of his Wish List requests.


He is doing his own design. I just give him pointers on how to do it.


He is building a special volcano.


It's growing.


Big enough?


Nope not yet. So he added more sticky clay.


Now it was time to hollow it out.


All the way through and out the bottom of the bowl.


Was the bowls sides high enough. Nope not for the amount of drink he wants to add. So he's begun building up the sides.


Next Sunday the clay will have dried out some and he'll be able to work it into what he desires.

So after a fun evening of Survivor its time for lights out.
Cheers, Wendy
