Wendy, it's good to see that you've been keeping Dan busy ~ idle hands are the devil's workshop! Very cool one-off Christmas card. Love the heads that you and Hula are doing.

hang10tiki those were so perfect, good job. I hope GROG saw them.

MadDogMike, thank you. Today will be fun when you announce the swap partners.

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

Doo Wop I've started on your Album mug while Tiki Hula worked on his bowl.

I started with a blank mug and a printout of the album cover.


I cut out the creature (which I had printed at the correct size for the mug).


I wrapped it around the mug


and outlined it with a sharp point.


When you do this the possibility for introducing air bubbles rises so you have to be careful how you re-fill the lines.


I started filling it up with clay and closing the lines as I did this.


I'm just layering clay and building the creature.


I've started on the face.


It doesn't look like much yet but it has a long way to go.
==========================================================

Loki Tiki put this photo on facebook yesterday. His family designed this mug and I made it last Christmas.
I thought I'd use it to wish you all a few very special and happy days.

Merry Christmas from Dan and Wendy

Wendy,

I got two mugs from Gecko. I never posted my last day on Oahu pics on the travel thread. (boo-hiss to me) but I snapped a picture of the mugs so you could see them:




It was super nice to meet him and his family! Definitely one of the highlights of my trip. Thanks so much again for the suggestion.

Merry Christmas to you & Dan! May 2014 bring you both good health, happiness and lots of tiki goodness!

zerostreet thank you so much zerostreet. I think most of the laughs come from hang10tiki and GROG!

LoriLovesTiki I love seeing Gecko'z work and knowing where it ended up. He's wonderful. Thank you for sharing. We wish you and all our tiki buddies a healthy and fun year.

lunavideogames here's a fun tidbit about Gecko. He was married to Ailie on 07/07/07 so this coming summer it will also be his 7th anniversary.

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

Well it is Christmas day and I don't know how much I'll work if any but I'm always a bit behind in posting photos so I have a few more of those "in the garage" photos. If you see them today then I know you are like me...hooked on TC. I always have to check in to see what my friends are up to or to read your comments.

I am so lucky to have this man. He shakes up the slip to perfection.


He does all the clean up from pouring and emptying molds.


Now that I turn the molds on their sides with a small amount of slip to seal the mold pieces we use only a few straps.


Just out of the mold


I cut off the top and cleaned the bowl.


All the molds drying again with the fan.


Our cat checks up on our work.


The next day back at it again.


More cleaning for Dan.


He is very limber.


Another moai is emptied.


Another day and more are poured and


emptied.


Well it's bye for now but we'll be back tomorrow.



Merry Christmas from Dan and Wendy

MadDogMike I bet you had a really fun one with your beautiful family. We sure enjoyed your card.

hang10tiki if you only knew how lazy we are, really. Thank you for all the fun presents. We kept them boxed since our trip and opened them for Christmas. What a blast.
===============================================

The Tiki Bob stacker was sent to me as a gift and I can't remember from whom it came. I've saved it for months so I'd have something special for his Christmas and now my memory has left me. If you read this please post.
Dan had three in different colors and always wished for one in the white face. You made his wish come true.
Thank you, now he has a set of three.



I was super happy to win this mug for Dan on eBay. The funny part is that it came from an acquaintance who lives 20 miles from us. Finding it changed our set of 6 to an incomplete set of 7. Does anyone know what the mug we are missing looks like?




Holler Waller was my swap partner for the mug exchange. He sent this wonderful Bosko mug. Dan thinks it looks just like him. Thank you David it was a hit.


It's a tradition that Dan wraps all of my presents in his brightly colored boxer shorts.


What's in Dan's shorts? Two clocks and an outdoor thermometer. All presents I had wished for this year.


I hope you all had a really fun Christmas and that your dreams came true.
===========================================================================

This is the end, the very end my friends. Sing that like a Doors song. We finished up pouring for the Wish List #4.
From this point on I'll just be working on all the projects. I do have to make some molds eventually and those will be poured but for now this is the end to the garage photos.

Moai mold.


Filled.


Emptied 2 hours later.


At a thrift store we found a better fan for drying out the molds in the winter. I don't have to move it.


Same day pouring.


Empty.


Let them sit until they are firm enough to remove.


That means wait until the next day.


Once removed I cover in plastic and put them into the bags.


Another day. Pour.


Empty.


Another day. Pour.


Empty.


We always feel as each day we have done it before. But now we are moving into the next phase.
It's really fun to work on the projects rather than to just keep prepping.

Thank you for the visit. Happy Holidays, Wendy

Wendy~
I've been crazy busy with family (my mother especially) & work & the Tiki Art Swap &...

But now I'm back & after 2 days of reading to catch up on the W&D Show, I feel prepared to go forward intelligently.

So glad that y'all had a lovely Christmas/Holiday, mine was great too.

I love seeing how you're all prepared for the Wish List #4 Challenge. Can't wait to see the play-by-plays!

Every day is like a special holiday. I get to wake up and see what messages are waiting for me. Thank you all so much.

WaikikianMoeKele I hope every day something good happens for you.

hang10tiki I showed the page of Fred Roberts mugs to Dan. He has them all so the question mark mug must be what he is still missing. The hunt is on!

VampiressRN I hope your hip is doing better and that we see you when this crazy part of the year is over.

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

After working on Tiki Hula's bowl the table was a mess. I had to clean it and the floor. Clay dust in a home is dangerous.


Doo Wop choose this album cover to make into a mug. There will be lots of changes too.


I started with the creature who will stand out from the mug the most.


Wooden carving tools work really well with clay as long as you keep dunking them in water and remove any clay that sticks.


Checking shows where the errors are located.


Now the hands/claws.


The closer hand is thicker so that the back hand seems further away.


I worked on the face and now that I've looked at these photos I can see the eye on the forehead needs to be raised with a bigger forehead. Photos really help.


I'm waiting to hear from Doo Wop before I take the next step. I will work on the creatures detailing. Right now he only has one tooth.


Time to abandon the computer for the clay is waiting for me.

Cheers and happy holidays, Wendy
