Sorry I had not checked this thread in a while.

I wish I could have wished you a happy birthday in person Dan, so please accept a belated birthday today.

It was so good to see you both on Saturday at the Marketplace. Have a safe trip home.

LoriLovesTiki Dan aka wendylovestikis says thank you very much.

Chippy we had a perfect trip home and it was good to see you too.

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

I thought I'd finished the Wish List but I re-connected with Tavarua so I started on his order which is a Kings Goblet with the Place of Refuge tikis on the back.

Here's how far along I am.

I cast three Frankoma tikis and connected them together.


Air bubbles are a constant worry.


I just started to bury the Frankoma salt and pepper shakers with sticky clay.


A little at a time to


try to make them close to the actual tikis.


So far they have no teeth but


this one doesn't seem to care.


I had put a hole in the head of the war god and now I added the bowl with sticky clay.








After a day of adding sticky clay a little at a time I put it into a plastic bag and let it rest overnight
to equalize the amount of water in all the different parts. This helps prevent it from cracking.

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

I recently finished this for Mondo-by-the-bay. It's a fish style Bumatay bowl.



Sticky clay on the back of each fish.


Attached and sealed one by


one until all three are on the bowl.


Then the attachment areas are cleaned up and made sharp.


I fine tuned all the carving on each fish.


Then I added the sea waves


and sanded them with water.


Now it's ready to dry.

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

For Kele aka WaikikienMoeKele I finished off the hand, lips and eyes of her Hello Kitty sculpt.





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


Thank you always for the visit. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki Dan's goblet is all Frankoma tikis, this one belongs to Tavarua Tiki.

Tavarua Tiki me too. You know I like a challenge and you sure do come up with them. It's firmed up enough for detail work today.

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

Back to the Wish List #4 projects.

Here's Mondo-by-the-bag's last two projects for this Wish List.

She wished for a classic style King's Goblet with lava. I'm trying a new technique where I don't entirely rely on Snow to make the lava texture. If this doesn't work I'll be back to the drawing board.


Sticky clay.


Beginning the texture.


This part is done.



Next project is a Volcano Bob with palm trees and a small tiki.

I added sticky clay a small amount at a time. Keeping your fingers wet helps prevent air bubbles. If you drag clay with a dry finger it can make air pockets.


Adding detail.














All done.


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

Proceed at your own risk.
Dan received this Birthday Card from MadDogMike!!!








Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, Volcano Bob's details are amazing- as is the Hello Kitty mug- which, of course, looks WAY better than the "Hello Tiki" Mug I made a while back. Show-off.

Look forward to seeing more!

Tavarua Tiki see the photos below. Now that it is done let me know if it fulfills your wish. I can put some wood scratches on the tikis when it dries. I'm glad you liked the first images.

TikiAno you are so nice. I like your new Moai on your thread.

DooWop your project was a lot of fun. It won't be long before I start the next steps.

TikiHula it had to be a joke. I've never tasted anything as bad as that sauce.

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

Today it was time to finish off Tavarua Tiki's King's Goblet with place of Refuge Tikis on the back.

I got out my reference photos. I print many helpers when I'm sculpting.


This is where I left off.


I finished off the tiki on the left.


I started by making the mouth deeper and then the teeth less so and the lips out further.


Carved the teeth, eyes and headdress.


All done and taking pinup shots.








==========================================================
Talking about pinups. I couldn't resist. My cat kept lying down in perfect photo op places.





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

It was a long clay day so now it's bedtime. Sleep well friends, Wendy

Hello Kitty better watch out for the stalking black panther!

I've always admired those Honaunau tikis. Someday I'll have to "help" you work on a set of mugs of these two - you know....when you have nothing to do

See you guys tomorrow. I'm so excited to find out if the Al Dead bowl survived the firing I may not sleep much tonight...
