Ahhh - how do you do it all Wendy? You are a sculpting machine and I'm so excited to start glazing I can't spit!

KTD and I are very lucky indeed to be able to spend days with Dan and Wendy...and we know it!

LoriLovesTiki thanks so much Lori. I've been hanging out here with so many men its good to have a woman pop up again. Where's Vamp?

TikiHula I love the inside joke. May your spit return because we will start glazing on Saturday!

muskrat terrific. I'll be watching for your post today.

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

On April Fools Day Dan told me he was going to only shave half of his face from now on. NOT!


Tiki Hula said he'd eat his whole meal all at once NOT!


=============================================================================================================================
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE stuck on tikis and loving it!

Yesterday I opened the molds for the last two Sacramento Crawl mugs that I needed to make.


I'm half way through the run of Fogcutter mugs that I need to pour for Tiki Atari's kickstarter project.


I cleaned up and re-carved the two crawl mugs as usual and


put them on the shelf to dry. It's wonderful to be so far ahead of schedule this year. I plan to have a relaxed summer.


I went back into the house and cleaned up the nook room.


I separated out all the Wish List projects from everything else I have made along the way.



I got set up to start glazing Wish List #4.


Then in the afternoon we poured the fogcutter mug and four Bob's. I'll stock pile Bob's for some future time.


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

Awhile back when I needed a Rat Fink model kingstiedye brought me many. Most of them were missing their noses.
I told him I would repair them. Since tikis break too I'll show you how Dan and I fixed this one.

This shows two of them with the noses broken off.


To make the nose stay on I needed something to stick the nose onto. So I put some industrial strength cement on the tip of the nose and hung him upside down to make it elongate.


Dan found a drill bit the right size.


I held the nose in place while he drilled.


Once the hole was the size of the cement drip we stopped.


I added cement into the nose with a toothpick.


I stuck it on and used tape to hold it in place.


I mixed these two paint colors together and


painted around the nose.


kingstiedye its ready to pick up, come for another visit.

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

Time to get back to work, cheers, Wendy

muskrat fixed you on the list. That's a plastic Rat Fink owned by kingstiedye. He loaned it to me when I was working on one for TikiWahini.

Here is her drawing and my sculpture.


hang10tiki horrors, I'm so glad he decided to finish his shave after the photo!

MadDogMike you did a good job with that photo on facebook. I'll look over the list to see if I should put some on the sculpt, its not yet dry.

Tiki Shark Art repairing Dan's chipped tikis is how I found my way into this art form. Our friend kingstiedye has a huge Rat Fink collection and has broken off many noses. I won't find a career in this copy written art form but it is fun to repair them.

(Really awesome work.) in doing repairs?

I'm not a facebook fan. I think that Tiki Central is the gold standard for all things tiki and facebook just can't come close.

I'm thrilled with 1,000,000 and you'll be next.

Tiki Tribe forever! I'm a member, I'm a member!!!
=================================================================================
Thank you all for the visits, Wendy
=================================================================================

Hi Friends, I'm not going backwards I'm still setting up to glaze. I just have a few projects that I haven't posted yet that will show up here until I have glaze photos ready to go.

Continuing on with by using up the things I cast that I didn't use for Wish List #4 I made a 3 Hula Girl Missionary's Downfall bowl.

I cleaned up the bowl and the women so that they were ready to assemble.


I trimmed off part of the head and cut off her toes.


Using sticky clay I stuck her in place.


I did the same for the next woman and


then the next.


I cleaned up the connections and made leis for their necks and made each a skirt.


Then the last one was dressed up.


Different angle.


Top View.


After a couple of weeks dying the feet separated from the bowl so I filled the openings with Magic Mend.


When that dried I sanded the bottoms and sides and added more Magic Mend.


I will do this until it looks perfect.


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

Thank you for the visit and comments, I appreciate them very much, Wendy

From the look of those three ladies, that poor missionary never stood a chance.

Great looking bowl!

Wendy and Brad can start the Million View Club - very exclusive.

Someone has got to sip a Missionary's Downfall out of the bowl someday...it's just begging for it!

So excited for Saturday - it's like Christmas. And yes, those ribs were fantastic

hang10tiki It's so big!

littlegiles I've always thought it was the women and not drink.

TikiHula we enjoy your visits. Tomorrow!

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

I glazed the first piece yesterday but I still have things I've made to share first.

Bee Hive Bob.

After adding the tikis I turned it over and


cleaned up the bottom


Then I added the names and copy write.


I didn't start off to make this a bee hive. I just thought it would be fun to run Bob's rings all the way around.


As I proceeded I could see the bee hive forming.


I made this back when I had a lot going on and my table was a mess.


I started the lid.


I made it a three straw lid.


The bowl was dryer than the lid so I made it larger so that as it shrunk I could whittle it down to the right size.


I printed some photos of bees.


I made the bee with sticky clay and lifted it off the table with the label scraper.


Now with it on top of the lid I was able to add more clay and to shape it.


Wings added.


after a few days I fit the lid.


Now I fine tuned the bee.


Close up.


I plan to glaze this in traditional colors so that it can be a regular Tiki Bob bowl or the lid can be placed on top for a Bee Hive Bob.

I'm so excited to be glazing now. So I'm heading off to play, Wendy

Gosh Wendy, you have really been cranking out the fun and creative stuff! Reminds me that I really need to buy more lottery tickets. Can't buy fun things without some winnings.

Love it all
