I don't think I like the idea of anyone but me and Mrs Moai bathing in my mug.

GROG welcome back. I was just thinking about you. Marketplace on the 8th? It is called the Muscle Builder. Every time you raise it to drink you get stronger.

TikiAno thank you. I enjoy laying brick in real life and building a rock wall is easier, no leveling! That Moai tray is so cute I may hang it on the wall.

Moai Mike I hope you are ready to build up some muscles. Let's just hope it doesn't blow up in the kiln. I so happy to have made your Wish come true.

TikiHula we both, Moai Mike and I thank you. Mold making on Saturday. Are you coming over???

hang10tiki I was happy to see GROG too. I carved The Honu Hideway on your mug, see below.

TikiPops I could read comments like this all day and be happy. But I won't get any more comments unless I work so I'd better do that after I finish here.

MadDogMike that sure sounds like a photoshop opportunity. Oh shoot, I forgot to click on the new link to check out your Valentine's photos. I'll do that when I'm done here.

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

Originally we were going to paint the words on the back but then after it had dried it was decided that carving was better.


I carved this with a toothpick. The clay is very brittle and wants to chip.


I wiped it with a sponge to see what it looked like.


Then I carved a bit more. After that it looked to bare so I did some more peanut
dents. Then it looked crooked.


So hang10tiki you just won this mug for noticing I passed 300 pages a while back. Another secret contest.

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

When I was casting things so I could work faster on the Wish List I had this Bumatay fish head with no place to go.
So I slapped him on a big mug.


I smoothed the clay all the way around.


When it had almost dried I did the fine detailing to the fish skin up to the mug.


Then I added waves to the mug


all the way around. Sounds funny but the next step is for him to dry.


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

dartharnie Wished for a mug for his father. As you can tell by the first two photos his father is a NY Yankee's fan.


These are the photos I used for making the mug.


While Tiki Hula watched I started with the V neck and the hat.


Tiki Hula was a great help by telling me to keep adding clay to build the hat sides straight up to get the shape right.


To add a part it is always best to make a slot and add the piece into the slot. It makes it stronger.


Checking the photo often helps.


I let it sit in a plastic bag for a few days to firm up.


This hat weight 3/4th pound.


I used a melon baller to carve out excess clay. If I didn't it would crack for sure.


Next I added the straw hole.


I began the logo on the shirt. I put on a slab of clay and then carve off the excess.


I carved the stripes on the shirt.


Close up of the logo.


Bob's forehead was just too high. I had added the palm rings so it was easy to


cut off two rings so that the hat was closer to his face.


A famous number was added but I can't remember if it was for Joe Namath or Mickey Mantle.


All done except for fine tuning the hats fit once it all has dried.














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

Thank you all for the comments. They really make me want to work harder. I love posting on Tiki Central, Cheers, Wendy

First time in forever I have had time to sit down and look over your thread. Loved the vacation pics and all of your new projects. Fun stuff as always.

I ALMOST agree with Lori. I love everything about the newest Bob- except for the yankees part. Wendy, i admit its hard for me not to love any of your amazingly creative pieces-- though i was raised to hate the yankees (my parents were both Brooklyn Dodger fans). Lori, good to hear you're a Mets fan too.

(I'm also a Padres fan, which carries with it a similar general depression known to Mets fans . But I digress.....)

In any case, I love lidded Bobs!!

I'll scroll back to look at Moai Mike's mug to get the thought of the yankees out of my head.

Love the Honu Hideaway Peanut Mug, too!

I don't know too much about baseball, but the NY Bob is lookin good. I like Moai Mike's mug too.

I have those moai ice trays. They are really cool and work well. You can use different juices too to make cool looking moai ice cubes, but I am sure you already have lots of ideas.

When is the Dan mug coming out? Still waiting on mine.

Oh my Gosh! NY Yankees Bob is fantastic! Everything about him looks wonderful!

And TikiAno, I understand where you're coming from. I'm a Cubs fan and it is... painful to say the least!

Fantastic work as always, Wendy! I can't wait to see NY Yankee Bob's progression through the mug-making process!

Tikiano, I understand your pain!

Maybe this season will be a better one.....

Where can I get some moai ice cube modls? I have some Dollar Tree ice cube trays but these molds look larger.

edited to add - nevermind, Google found them on ebay and elsewhere.

Wanna know pain?

Try being an A's fan raised by a Yankee's fan. Do you know how many Farm Team Jokes he's told me over the years? How many AL worst comments I suffered? How many trades he lorded over me every time my favorite A's player jumped ship for the "Big Leagues"?

AND then still asking Wendy to make a Yankee's Mug. It's gonna live in my house, on top of it all....sigh...

Wendy, the mug looks awesome!!!!!! and you still have to glaze it. It'll only get better. I expect you'll be pumping a few of these sports mugs out for the next wishlist.

I showed the pictures to Dad and he was beaming...wanted to reply back to everyone poo-pooing the Yankee's but luckily he didn't know how to register a tiki central account. And I wasn't teaching him

Thank you so much Wendy. It's perfect!

tigertail777 I love your thread and hope that you'll start a new project soon You are a true artist. Thank you for this visit.

kingstiedye when I got home I was horrified to find that I hadn't taken any photos. So I guess we'll have to come back really soon. I have already cut and placed the abalone in the eye of your necklace. I'll fix the noses soon. Did you see Joe Namath at the Olympics. He was in a fur coat.

LoriLovesTiki only happiness on this thread.

TikiAno lids are as hard as making an entire mug. I'll be happy if it doesn't crack. The last time Dan and I watched any sports it was when Andre Agassi still had hair. We don't know any teams or players. We would lose at Jeopardy or the millionaire game.
Thank you for always making me feel so good about my work.

lunavideogames That is so funny. I'll post Dan posing for his mug below.

hang10tiki U 2 funny. It could have been better if I'd carved it while it was still wet. But as a prize it works. I just hope I can do the buff glaze as planned.

DooWop it won't be long before I have all the Wish List projects made and I can start to sand them. Maybe after the March 8th Marketplace at Don the Beachcombers. Glazing is always interesting and scary.

LoriLovesTiki these trays are good enough to hang on the wall.

dartharnie I'm so happy that it meets your expectations. Maybe all the monsters can face the Yankee in the middle. I hope to finish the girls bowls tomorrow. Some changes but I think they'll like them.

Thank you for this photo of all the monster mugs together. I love seeing them united.


TikiHula one Wish List at a time.

Thank you everyone for all these fun to read messages. Made my day. I was going to relax tonight but I just couldn't resist answering and posting some fun Tiki Hula photos.

Here goes.


When Tiki Hula comes over we always start out by going to lunch. He a lover of desert buffets. Can you tell?


The disk had finally dried and now it was time to fit it into the hold on top of the AL DEAD fez.


I just kept carving and sanding it down until it fit.


Once it fit I did a bit more scraping to smooth the top.


Looks pretty good here but I needed to remove a bit more to make room for the Magic Mend.


Here's the bowl with the Magic Mend in front.


Here's the bowl with Tiki Hula the designer in front.


I painted some on the fez opening and on the disc and put it into place. Then I filled around the disk with extra.


Then I used my favorite tool the label scraper to remove the excess.


While it dried we took a break to see the progress Dan's made in the newest tiki room. My projects that are drying are stacking up.


Now it was dry


and so I added some more.


I had Tiki Hula flip the bowl over to add the mend on the inside. One of the heads broke loose. Luckily it fell hitting my finger which broke the fall rather than the head.


Magic Mend is made for gluing dried clay objects together. So that's just what we did. Looks good as new.


I took this photo of Tiki Hula and then noticed how much he looks like


one of the heads on the bowl!!!


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

We tried the same trick with the camera. But found that Dan looks more normal


when altered. We'll have to go back to the drawing board for his mug.



Now I'll relax with a good book and rest up for another clay day tomorrow. Thank you all so much, Wendy

Thanks for the tip on magic mend- I haven't seen it but am now very (very) curious about it. I've used glaze to fuse pieces together successfully, but this seems a bit safer.

I'm glad we all can agree to hate the yankees- well, except datharnie's father.

I'm not sure if anyone noticed that Grog slipped in for a visit....
