I wish I had one of those! That has to be one of my favorite designs that you've created.

Wow..... Tapa Bob looks great.

Great advice on the basic cylinder mold- since I do a lot of work at a public/ shared studio, not sure if that would work- space wise, but would love to try it. Thanks!

"So what's up with the Wish List #4?

This is another Tapa Bob which was ordered by Mondo-by-the-bay.

Carving the tapa designs took me through 3 hour long TV shows."

Holy Tapa, Wendy! That Bob is INCREDIBLE...I am thrilled! I first must bow to the Tapa Bobs that came before me for the idea (with special thanks to ebtiki). The details are gorgeous and are exactly what I wanted. Thanks for taking the time to post all the pics. It is so much fun to see the tiki as it grows into "adulthood--it's like seeing Bob's baby pictures.

Such dedication and concentration for the carving! So..... what was your 3 hours of television while you worked?

THANK YOU!!

swizzle thank you. I've sure had fun watching your projects. Are you the only tiki ceramicist in Australia?

MaukaHale even though these are often on the Wish Lists I will make them any time because I don't like to watch TV and do nothing. So when I finish my work day at 5 PM I will still carve for hours if we watch TV. When you want one let me know. I will even copy a Hawaiian shirt design onto Bob.

TikiAno they have lots of rules. Our senior center has three kilns but you can only fire things you pour from their molds.

ebtiki these are a fun challenge. Your Bastard is firm now and soon I'll see signs of drying.

hang10tiki and he smiles too, right at you!

Big Kahuna practice helps.

DooWop I keep showing your mug when we give home tours. I think it may be dry right when I finish all the Wish List sculpts. Then it will be time to sand.

LoriLovesTiki there is so much joy in working with clay. Everyone can play with it. I did many sculpey projects before I started ceramics.

kingstiedye I could mold one but it's so much fun to just make everyone different.

mondo-by-the-bay oh no do I have to confess that I tape General Hospital and the Housewives of Beverly Hills? I like background noise that I don't have to look up and see unless there is an argument or a gun goes off. These shows fill the bill. But as soon as Dan comes into the room the first thing that happens is I have to put something better on. So from there it was the new show Intelligence after we watched the local and evening news. So Bob was conceived during trash and news.

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

The next Wish List mug is for Moai Mike. I've got a good start on this mug but there will be tapa and rocks and lettering yet to come.

When I cast these Moai I left the sides on so that they could be wall plaques.


But if I cut the sides off then I can use them to make a mug.


I also trimmed the back so that he wouldn't stick out too far.


I cleaned up all the sides until he looked good.


I cut out the bottom for that there is airflow and that he won't blow up in the kiln.


I added sticky clay all around the edges.


I put my hand inside the mug and pressed him into place.


Being careful not to make any air pockets I cleaned up the clay with a brush.


Large grain sand paper makes a nice rock texture.


I'm ready to call it a night.


The sun sets and the room becomes darker.


I put a plastic bag over the mug until I get back to work on it.

Have a great night. We are getting up at 5 am to take a friend for a colonoscopy. At least it's not us.

Thank you all for the comments and visits. I sure do appreciate all of you, Wendy

That Tapa Bob is incredible.

I could find room on the shelf for him too.

Tiki Bob and I thank you. He really likes to play dress up. I do enjoy carving these Tapa Bobs while watching TV.

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

Back to Moai Mike's mug. He requested his name go on the back with the letter's standing out. This is where I left off today.

When I do a project I usually have to experiment and think it through. First I knew that the clay I had cut off the Moai cast was a good thickness to use for the lettering. I rolled it out flat.


I recently bought this kitchen tool and tried it out cutting the clay.


The tool gave me perfect pieces that I could put on the mug for the lettering. However it would be easy to introduce those deadly air bubbles at each attachment point. I decided to try a different approach.


I started shaping two pieces of clay that I had rolled out.


I put slip on the backside as glue, this also will force out the air bubbles, then I stuck them on the mug. Next I pressed from the center out and then smoothed the sides.


I wrote the words Moai Mike on the clay


and then using these two tools I cut out the unwanted clay.


Once I was done I used a wet brush to smooth the clay as much as I could. It is very soft and sticky so I used a lot of water.


Just a view to show show thick the words are right now.


These can be left this thick or carved or later sanded down.


I still need to add rocks and tapa to this mug.

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

It has been summer weather here. We have no water for crops and that's really a disaster but since we have such good weather it was time to play like a couple of kids. We went to the Sacramento ZOO.

This was the closest I've ever been to a flamingo. What a great bird. VampiressRN have you used your Flamingo Bob I made for you?


I see a monkey I think of all the great paintings by zerostreet. Tiki Tony will have a Planet of the Apes monkey mug in the future.


Dan bonded with a friend.


We found one dead palm in the ZOO that had been carved.


Then it was back home to play with clay.

Cheers, Wendy
