littlegiles I guess I'd better keep working...the show must go on! I sure would miss having you all visit and leaving me fun to read messages.

TikiHula and you are so good at it.

tigertail777 I just saw you working to package your Egyptian Theater prints. Very cool. There is a lot to do here. I'll just glaze the Wish List. Then I'll work on Tiki Atari's kickstarter project.

Chippy it won't be long before you see your Maori mug show up here.

TikiAno Tiki Hula, Dan and I will open the first load soon but I need to post more photos before I show the results.

muskrat you have to wait until the crawl to get your mug but you can tell me now if you want it glazed differently. The crawl mugs will look like coconuts, brown and white.

hang10tiki you must be my talent agent, thank you for getting me on a TV show. I grew up acting but its been awhile now. I guess it never leaves you.

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

Thank you all for the comments that boost my spirit and make me grin. It's a great reward for posting photos.

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

We opened the kiln and found that all the Sacramento Crawl mugs came out just fine.


I hauled them outside so that when I'm ready to wash them they are already there.


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

Next up was a Tapa Bob for Mauka Hale Tiki. This one is an easier glaze. Just filler up and dump'er out.


Paint around the face and then the whole body.


After the face is painted white and the eyes and lips are done it's time to let it dry.


Keep in mind that every step you see is done three times. I don't take photos showing layer one then layer two then layer three.
That's why GROG always says he hates to glaze. He just needs to find a good soap opera and listen to that junk while he works.

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

Now it was time to do Mondo-by-the-bay's Drunken Bamboo Bob. It's a combo of two prior Bob's show in the photo. First the inside.











Choosing colors is always the fun part.








One more color.


Three layers each and done.


Now I'm done too and ready to read a good book called The Historian. 600 plus pages of searching for a Vampires grave.

Cheers, Wendy

!!! Love the custom girl with the eyepatch and real tassel skirt! Too cool.

Thank you, Wendy, for all the awesome work you are doing on the limited edition Innsmouth Fogcutter mugs. As a long time fan of your thread and work, it's a pleasure to watch them take shape under your talented hands.
Mahalo!

Both of those Bobs look so good! That Bamboo Bob is just special! I can't wait to see how it turns out!
And that kiln full of crawl mugs is just such a happy sight!

Three hours and counting until the kiln is opened and (among other things) the glazed Al Dead bowl emerges in all it's glory! Can't wait...tick...tick...tick...

It's Tuesday and the weather is so perfect today.

hang10tiki and I am honored. Especially that my art has a corner display in the Honu Hideway. Great photo.

hang10tiki Dan sends his thanks.

Tiki-Atari glad you like my hula girl. He was injured in a kiln accident but we think she looks great with the patch.

Innsmouth Fogcutter you are welcome. I've made great headway on the Wish List and your project will be next.

DooWop thank you so much and for your patience too. I keep going over your mug planning the glazing. When I do it I want it to be just right. Soon!!!

MaukaHale It will go into the next load to be fired.

TikiHula two more hours until you arrive and the kiln opens. Here are your glazing photos for the Zombie Torch mug.

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

Tiki Hula's been put to work on his own mug.


Finishing touches.


Now the project for WaikikianMoeKele. Tiki Bobette playing with and as Hello Kitty. I hope I spelled that correctly.


This is tiny but I had brushes that fit into all the small areas.


Working with Tiki Hula.


Done and drying.



Next up Mondo-by-the-bay's King's Goblet. Layer one.


Dried.


Layer two.


Dried.


Layer three plus layer one of the black.


Three layers on the black outer bowl followed by three layers of a different black glaze on the lava.




Once it dried you can see the difference in the blacks.


That's it for tonight. Break time is over and it's back to work. Cheers, Wendy

Let me slap some glaze on my Zombie Village face, hang10, and I'll look a whole lot better

Oh snap - tonight was just like Christmas morning! Can't wait for you all to see how the glazing turned out. I was floored! Wendy is just the best!

hang10tiki the tikis do but I'm a mess.

TikiHula has a lot of patients. He will work for many hours to glaze without complaint.

hang10tiki oh oh, I see he's looking like me after so many hours.

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

I do know that there is repetition in this thread as I do each project. This is also my personal work journal. So here goes again.

It was another day of washing mugs for the Sacramento Crawl.


When I finished you can still see the bottom of the rinse bucket but not the wash bucket. I know I did a good job when it comes out this way. All that dust that comes off would make glaze skips if I left it on.


All done and on clean trays they are ready to join the first batch in my living room.


OOps blurry. I finished off the bottom level and


then added a second layer using trays.


I must be so tired I'm shaking the camera. I covered them to prevent any dust from landing on them.


All my other projects in the works are covered on the dining room table.



Another Wish List mug for Mondo-by-the-bay has been glazed.

This is Volcano Bob.


This is a discontinued glaze that I will miss when I run out. It's perfect for volcanos although it always has a problem when it's fired and needs a second go round.


A little work on the small tiki.


Front and


Back all done.


==================================================
I've been glazing all day. I have a few Wish List projects to go but the end is nearer.

Cheers, Wendy

Here's the next one for Mondo-by-the-bay. It's a Tapa Bob with an complicated glazing to do.

Requested colors were yellow and brown like the top half of Hale Tiki's engagement mug.


I put on a very thick coat of yellow glaze to fill the indentations from carving.


When this glaze has dried 24 hours later I sand off all on the high areas.


Then I use a wet paper towel to scrub off any that is left on.


To these exposed areas I will add the brown glaze. If I didn't remove the yellow first the glaze would be too thick and could cause the brown glaze to run.


I wish my hands were steadier. It's slow going a


tiny little painting at a time.


Tapa Bob's posing for some photos.


The last thing I did was cover the red with Cobblestone. A product that separates into black and exposes the red underneath. It works best for horizontal surfaces. We'll see how it does on the vertical sides.








Since using two glazes of different types can cause separation I also use a clear glaze.


In the case of Tapa any white areas that remain will just be highlights. Covering them with clear makes it water tight.


==========================================================
One more for Mondo-by-the-bay.

This is a Bumatay Bowl with fish fins. First I painted the inside and


out with a Sea Mist blue green.


Then I choose three more glazes to add for the next two layers.


I added those in strips over and over until it was layer thick enough.


The last glaze was added to each of the three Bumatay fish.


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

Next up is Moai Mike's mug.

I started by choosing the glazes he and I discussed.


I used the spotted glaze on the inside of the mug and coated the outside with the spotted red.


I wiped it off of the tapa lettering. Christmas candy, oh no!


Next I coated the Moai in flat grey and


also did the same for the lettering.















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

ebtiki's Suffering Bastard Bob.

I just started with the white face and black eyes and mouth.


All done and ready to fire.

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

These were done over several days. Since I know that Tiki Hula is dying to show off his bowl I'm spending time to post more glaze photos at once.

I need to go back to work now so I can finish the Wish List. Cheers, Wendy
