Ok. Your "altered" photos of Dan and me are pretty funny. I hate to think my head is going to be shrunk someday. Guess I'll have to stay away from the more remote parts of South America
Hang10, I like your photo - looking forward to meeting you in person someday
Mahalo again Wendy for fixing the bowl.

TikiAno what is the origin of your name? I've done fusing with glaze one time on a volcano that is now in Tiki Hula's collection.

hang10tiki aren't they so cute?

Tiki Hula we are missing you today and will miss you tomorrow. Next visit will be at Chris and Karen's. I'll call with a time.

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

There were a lot of baseball fans who wrote when I posted dartharnies Yankee mug and that was fun. Here comes his other two wishes. One for each of his daughters. They designed their bowls and then I did a bit more.

These may not be tiki but at least I'm sharing steps for working clay.

For the girls bowls I cast two cannibal bowls and then cut them to the desired height.


To do the names I used this wood tool to carve into the clay.


Two of her favorite things are dolphins/porpoises


and butterflies. She is 4 years old.


dartharnies 8 year old is a fan of Harry Potter and


wanted his crest inside the bowl. My trick is to print it in the right size and then to outline it in the clay.


I sealed it in with sticky clay. This one is scary for air bubbles.


Looking at the picture I worked on detail.


She makes wands for herself and for friends so I added this to the back of the bowl.


dartharnie will they be happy with these?

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

For all of you waiting on your Wish List items to show up, they will I promise. I'm close to finishing the sculpts on all the Wish List orders. Then begins the sanding.

Meanwhile tomorrow we will be making a mold again. We start at 8 am. If you live in the area and want to watch just come on by the house. We'll be in the garage.

Cheers, Wendy

That AL DEAD fez bowl with the shrunken heads... it is SO darned cool! I absolutely love it!

I keep meaning to mention that whenever you have that poinsettia table cloth in a picture it makes me think of my Mom. She had the exact same tablecloth! I love seeing it because I get to see cool tiki and think of family at the same time!

Keep on rocking, Wendy! This batch of wish list creations is so phenomenal! Things I never could have thought of coming to life and looking fantastic! I love the creativity of everyone coming together with your amazing talent and artistry!

Wendy, I love the bowls for the kids- hopefully it will be exciting for them to receive- possibly encourage future clay artists (possibly tiki artists???)

'Ano can be translated as "strange" or "weird" in Hawaiian (other definitions, too). "Strange Tiki." Not "ano" as in "year" in spanish... Thanks for asking!

hang10tiki GROG always gets the girl. Dan watched GROG get so many hugs at an event he mentioned it. No wonder he's on TV.


DooWop that is such a sweet story. When Dan and I are in antique stores tiki hunting I often find toys of my youth. They trigger fun memories and so I take photos and keep them in my sentimental file. I find the photos do the trick as much as the actual item. I've been taking photos and passing on lots of things to my great-niece. That makes more room for Dan!

Tiki Hula thought up a great design, we both thank you. Now it the repairs will hold we'll have a great piece. I still need to carve the down hill for the rum pocket on the top of the fez.

I have a lot of fun fulfilling wishes. Everyone comes up with fun ideas. I like the challenge.


TikiAno now that's a fun name. You need to make a strange or weird mug to go with it.

It was fun making the bowls that the girls requested. The 9 year old, I had it wrong, makes wands for her friends so I surprised her with the wand part. The 4 year old wanted a dolphin or a butterfly so I gave her both. I like making children smile. On the bottoms I left my name off and put Love Daddy 2014, that's the surprise for dartharnie. We'll see if he reads it here or finds it when the bowls are finished.


hang10tiki I missed GROG's episode, I was watching my clay take shape. I'll have to watch for re-runs.

LoriLovesTiki it's sitting on the table with all the rest of the drying Wish List pieces. See below.

*****************************************************************************************************
*****************************************************************************************************

Guess What? I have finished sculpting all of the Wish List orders as of today. I will now post photos each day until everyone gets to see what they ordered and how it turned out. I have many pieces that are ready to sand and many that are still drying. I am working every spare moment and will continue until one day all your wishes come true.

*****************************************************************************************************
*****************************************************************************************************

Sometimes I make errors. I knew I had an order for an intoxicated Bob. So I went to work and made this guy.


As I was carving intoxicated on the bottom I ran out of room. As I was pondering my mistake I thought of a second one.


Mondo-by-the-bay didn't just want an Intoxicated Bob she ordered one with a bamboo surface. So the next day I made a new one that I hope will meet with her approval.

First I carve with a pointed metal tool and then I go back and widen the carving with this wooden tool.


All the bamboo is in place and water has been used to "sand" it.


Now I'm adding some texture to the stalks.


A simple round tool head is used for the background which is like a peanut mug. It give is a vintage feel.


All done and now Drunken Bamboo Bob is posing for you.











Yep I changed his name to Drunken Bamboo Bob so that it would fit.


Now it's time for the Oscars to begin so I'm outa here. Cheers, Wendy

I was saving this photo for tomorrow but after you nice note I thought I would do it tonight. I'm so glad that you can now hang this outstanding carved necklace to your collection.

Thank you so much for the visit. It was fun to have you over while we worked. A nice break, Wendy

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

Hi Friends, timing is everything and I like to keep tiki busy. So in addition to the Wish List I signed on to help out with Tiki Atari's innsmouth-fogcutter mug project on kickstarted.

If you go to the link above you may read the entire story of how and why he designed this mug, how to purchase it and how to acquire rewards.

I am a small part of it. I think he contacted me because of all the topless hula girls that have shown up in my work. Example of what I will be doing for him is that I'll change the girl so that she is topless. Another change will be in how they are glazed.

I am only a part of his reward program and he is paying me the same as if each of these mugs were on the Wish List. I am not a company so he doesn't get any bargains. That is why I agreed to sign on for this project. He is paying me for the mold I had to make to do his special rewards. Thank you Tiki Atari for asking me to be a part of your project.

This will not slow down all the Wish List projects I have in the works because his mold has to dry for a month. During that time I will be working on all the projects I have sculpted.

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

Here is how I made the mold. Since I have posted so many series of making mold on my thread I cut down the number of photos. If I left you with a question please just ask.



Oh shoot it's time to go we have an appointment. I will post the photos this afternoon. Sorry, Wendy
