Wendy,

That lobster and Beef Wellington dinner looked YUMMY! I love LOVE lobster! As well as most other seafood, as well. Due to your cruise report I'm putting Celebrity on my list. No cruise for us this year but one day I want to go on a Carribean Cruise. This year we're remodeling our kitchen, enjoying our tiki backyard and if we're really lucky, maybe going to St. Thomas with the kids.

Mahalo for sharing!

TikiHula I took a photo of Dan during his rain dance. Here it is.


VampiressRN two cute guys into tiki.

LoriLovesTiki ST. THOMAS is a good choice.

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

Today I stopped by facebook to see what's happening there. I saw a beautiful post by Dale to his lovely wife Tiki Tonie. I believe that they are having their 22 wedding anniversary today.

One week ago Tiki Hula and they came to our home for a visit. She brought Dan three of her tiki mugs. She is a skilled ceramic artist and you'll be seeing her work on this section of Tiki Central under Tiki Tonie.


Dan was admiring her logo on the bottom of the mug while her husband and Tiki Hula watched.


My photos don't do these justice they are terrific.


The larger mug is their dog with a tiki necklace.


After they gave us the gifts we took them for a tour of Dan's collection.





After the tour we went over her latest creation based on Planet of the Apes. She'll be posting when she begins the mold process.


Thank you again Tiki Tonie and Dale for the wonderful gift.

===========================================================
Back to work on Doo Wop's mug for Jerry's Jungle Room.

I started with a the addition of a volcano and tikis from the Mark Rydon (sp?) photo she had sent to me.


One tiki then


two tikis on a rock.


Next I worked on the head fin and the body scales.


Face detail added and


then using water I smoothed the body scales.


I carved out clay from the back fin and then smoothed it with water.


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

Shortly Tiki Hula will be here for another clay day. Cheers, Wendy

Thank you hang10tiki.
================================
We had a visit from Tiki Hula. We had a fun day with he and Dan playing music and movies while I worked clay.

We took a break for a walk and

a trip to a thrift shop where Mike tried on a valentines hat

and some food that he called yummy and I called life threatening.


================================
It's always fun for me to finish the sculpting and to put a mug on the table to dry. That's what's happening with
Doo Wop's mug. Here are the steps I took to finish it up.

Here I added lines to simulate ocean water.


I finished the tiki faces.


Detail added to the hair, hands and swimsuit.


Moon and stars.














Palm tree.





The mugs bottom.


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

I've got a good start on the Wish List. Some of you I will be contacting for more direction soon.

Today Polynesian Paddy and his wife are coming for a visit. They find me up to my elbows in clay.

Please note that all the times I wrote Polynesian Pattie on my thread I was incorrect. He never
told me, I finally noticed.

Cheers, Wendy

The mug looks SO good! Thank you, Wendy! And the touch with the "Jerry's Jungle Room" just makes it perfect!
You're a rock star!

DooWop I'm so happy that you are pleased. These posts make my day. Speaking of today, Ginger/Tina Louise who is on the mug turns 80 today. Imagine that.

TikiRootsRocka thank you, your sculpting skills are terrific and you can do anything you want to do. I hope we see you on the 8th.

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

The AL DEAD bowl has been drying for weeks. To prevent cracking due to one part drying faster than another I put extra baggies over the hair. I would uncover the bowl for an hour and recover in over and over again.


Then one morning I found a crack on the top of the Fez.


Flipping it over I found that, as suspected, it went clear through.


I love this dental tool. I use it for so many things. Here I dig out the crack. If I left it alone until the entire bowl was dry it is possible that it would have continued to grow.


I dug this much clay out a little at a time.


No you can see clear through to the table top.


I continued to dry the bowl day after day, covered and uncovered.


Once the bowl was close to being dry throughout I carved the opening into a slope.


I made a piece of clay that is concave like the original area. I made it larger so that it can shrink.


I am now slowly drying this piece but keeping it covered and uncovered and flipping it over and back.


Once everything is perfectly dry I will have more steps to share.
==================================================================

When hang10tiki requested a Peanut Mug for his Honu Hideaway I cast one for Dan and one for Mahalo Tiki (it's his mold that I borrowed).

I decided to alter Dan's into something new. Introducing the Rappa Maori mug copy write 2014!

The original out of the mold from Mahalo Tiki.


Adding on clay.


View One.


View Two.


His Back.


Well once again I need to get back to the clay to work on Wish List number four.

I hope you are having a good day and that something joyful finds you. Cheers, Wendy


PS what did I tell you about photos help to catch mistakes. I just saw a big one. I better fix it. RAPA MOAI is the right name.

Did someone named iuzzifeli just highjack this thread? What's up with this?

Love hanging out with you two crazy kids as always. It was great to meet Dale and Tonie as well and I absolutely love her POA sculpt. I'll buy one! I had more fun following them around your house tour and seeing their reaction as each room got more and more impressive - you mean there's MORE??

The Jerry's Jungle Room mug is looking sweet and mahalo for fixing up the Al Dead bowl
You enjoy sculpting and it shows.

hang10tiki I bet you noticed that I passed 900,000 views. Now comes the countdown to a million and a contest that I'll have to think up. Thank you and everyone for all the views. I love numbers and tiki friends.

I fixed RAPPA MOAI, see below.

TikiHula the disc is dry and ready to carve to fit the top of your AL DEAD bowl. We love all our tiki buddies and that was a special day. Bullet just called and he's on his way here. Thank you always for liking my art.

MadDogMike there are no tikis in the living room. It's the dining room that he has now taken over with my blessing. All I have left is the master bedroom, Egyptian, and the living room, Asian. So far I'm holding out on those.
=================================================================

RAPPA MOAI FIX

I don't know where my head was when I wrote the second misspelled wrong word.


The good part is that I cast everything really thick so there's wiggle room.


I shaved off both words and carved the correct words over again. SAVED!!!


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

Chippy has a thing for Tiki Bob. He requested a Maori Bob. I've done lots of PNG Bob's but this is the first Maori.

I used this photo as a guide.


I started to carve.


Another view.


I used a wet brush to smooth the edges. A sharp edge will not glaze.


I finished the face


and then I carved the classic Tiki Bob rings.


All done.


Chippy let me know if you approve.

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

Bullet has arrived and now it's time to play. Cheers, Wendy

Did Wendy just class up a classic and make it more classic-er? It's so good it knocked the grammar right out of me.
