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.



That is pretty awesome!

Chippy that makes me so happy. Each step will be posted. Right now for all the Wish List projects it's make them and let them dry. You mug will have a big #1 on it but I will make similar ones in the future.

Professor G U B Cute. I hope my art is in collections and that Dan and I are remembered after we are gone. We are trying to be like Louie B or Spurlin. It will take 50 or more years but one can always hope.

zerostreet your new design is looking really good. Thank you.


hang10tiki he gets #1.


Atomic Tiki Punk I haven't forgotten that you wanted one when you were ready. Chippy's will be numbered #1 and it will go from there. Dan wants one too. So when you are ready let me know even if it's years from now.

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

ebTiki and White Devil your Bastard Bobs have been made. I will be tweaking them as they firm up and praying that with so much added clay that they don't blow up in the kiln. I try hard not to add in air bubbles but you never know.

I need to know if you want any designs carved into the mugs like I did for Dan's version. I'll get back to you about colors when I get to that step a long time from now. Here is the link to his mug.
http://tikiroom.com/img/251x528e56bb.jpg

I took a couple of days to make these at the same time.
Step one the suffering mouths.


Step two cave back the noses.


Add clay to the foreheads.


Side view shows how much.


Add clay to build the back shape.


Both done.


I worked with this sticky clay to remove the air bubbles. It takes four per Bob.


I rolled them into shapes for the arms and legs for Bob 1.


Leg.


Legs and Butt.


Placing the arm.


Arm.


Arm.


Arm.


Arms and Hands so the first Bob is as done as can be on day 1.


Side.


Backside.


Side.


Day two it's time to finish off the second Bob. Adding legs.


Arms and Legs are done and this one is finished for now.


Side.


Backside.


Side.


Once these have firmed up I go and fine tune the shapes.

I hope you all have a nice day with lots of smiles. Cheers, Wendy

I missed a few days due to work, and I missed a whole lot!

Let me know if Dan doesn't like Rapa Moai... or Rapa Napa Moai:

TikiAno well welcome back, I missed you. We like Napa. So many mugs that could be made and so little time. GROG where are U?


hang10tiki and you started it all. I wish MP would get his up and going because Dan's number one and the order list. I'm happy to make them until he starts. MP where are U?

ebtiki let me know if you want it plain or carved like Dan's. Glad you like it.

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

Last year Tiki Atari had $85,000 in orders for his first mug. Imagine that! Now he's got his second mug off the ground with Tiki Farm making the run. I'll be doing some 1/1's and add on's in color and clay for his project. That's why I've been working furiously on all the Wish List Projects and the Sacramento Crawl mug. If you scroll down his kickstarter page you'll see my bio and photo with lorikeets my favorite bird.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jchaffin/the-innsmouth-fogcutter-tiki-mug-from-horror-in-cl/

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

Today for Valentine's Dan and I exchanged presents and since some are tiki I'm going to share with you.

I was swap partners with CY and today I let Dan open the box. His work of Tiki Album Art now hangs in our newest tiki room.


We love it, thank you CY.


We always make our cards for each other. I made a Moai head doily card for Dan.


I printed and framed the pictures I've used for 2013 and 2014 crawl mugs. He's holding them where they will hang in his newest tiki room. My art projects are all over the table drying.


This is the card Dan made for me. Inside was a coupon for a 20 second kiss. I used it right away but didn't remember to take a photo, the kiss was that good!


We wish you all a very Happy Valentine's.

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

Next up THE SACRAMENTO CRAWL MUG for 2014 October. I've started taking orders and they are about to be posted on page one of this thread.

Here's how I made the sculpt in professional sculptors Romo Clay number 3.

I used a bowl as a base shape and then I melted this clay and added it to the bowl.


Once it was in this shape I molded it and used it for project.


19tikichef62 came along and wanted a cannibal bowl so I got it out and added the top portion.


It took days and lots of melted clay.


When the shape was as he requested I then molded the bowl and have used it in projects.


Now it's time for the next Crawl mug and I decided I wanted to do a large coconut mug/bowl. The
building for this restaurant still stands in Sacramento and we drive past often.
I actually got to eat here one time with my aunt and mother. I was a teenager. It was so
dark inside that we couldn't see the people at the next table. There was just a candle for
light. Now I'll make it come back to life in a mug. I have no idea if they ever had tiki mugs.
If you know I'd love to hear about it.

Thank you 1961Surf for the thread on this place. I'm using your post for my mug.


All of us hate making molds so if you can find a short cut then we take it. So I decided that I'll use the mold to make a mold. By using the mold sides I won't have to build up pounds of clay as shown in the photo above. So I marked the first mold piece on the clay.


This line will be my boundaries for the front of the mug as I sculpt it.


I printed pages from 1961Surf's thread in different sizes until I found what I knew would work for the mug.


Bullet/Kingstiedye came for a visit while I was working.


I started by tracing the letter's. Then I began to carve.


It's important to not have any undercuts or the plaster will break off from the mold when it is pulled apart.


Then I outlined the tiki with a sharp point. As a coconut mug the top will be cut off just below the ring.


Now I outlined the features of the tiki.


I'm wearing out so I'll stop here. I'll post more tomorrow. Thank you all for the visit. I'm going to set up page 1 of this thread for orders. You do not have to attend the crawl to buy a mug. I will ship after the crawl has ended.
This will be a run of 50 and then there will be glaze tests and 1/1 specials.

Thank you always for the visit. Wendy

Tiki Hula were on for molding tomorrow.

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

Here are the rest of the steps for making the Sacramento Crawl mug for 2014. PM me with orders please.

I Buzzy just scored a matchbook from this place.


I decided to cut into the coconut to give the side some depth.


Then I added clay to do the same on the front of the tiki.


I'm trying to match the picture as close as I can while keeping it mold friendly.

I doubt that all the scratches will show up and I'll have to add them to each mug by hand.


What's a coconut without its three dents?


Next for the back I decided to make Sacramento CA and to make it huge.


Done.


Dan helps me all the time so I'm adding his name to the Crawl mugs as a thank you.


I started to add indentations.


At this point Dan said I thought you were making a coconut not a pumpkin. See how much I need him.


Ok so I fixed it.











I put my hand in this photo so you can judge size. It will shrink 10 percent in drying and firing.


Pinup photos of the five years of crawl mugs in order. 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014.


In these photos I've wrapped cloth around the top that will be cut off.




I've already made 10 tweaks to the mug. I removed the deep groove next to the tikis face and I've fine tuned the face and body. Tomorrow we will mold this mug and I'll have more photos for you then.

Cheers, Wendy

Love it! The Tiki, itself, would make a great mug, too!
