Amazing work Wendy, you are the Tiki Bob master! Can't wait to see the next variation on Bob you come up with. Holding my breath to see how the glaze comes out on the goblet. The Torch mug is also fantastic. There is so much work you put into every mug, thanks again for sharing the process!

littlegiles it is really impossible to hide black with glaze. Sometimes if you make it thick enough underglaze will hide it but this grey glaze will not. The black should all come through.

If you have one of your dolls please post a photo here to share with us. I admire that kind of painting since it is so delicate.

Love the photo of the Zombie Torch displayed, thank you. I love it when photos of my work show up here. hang10tiki has done it the most so far. We artists are hams.

Tavarua Tiki you are welcome. This posting is a lot of fun for me. I love reading the comments. It's how I start or end each day.
The next Tiki Bob I do will be for the Alien Tiki Swap. Keep posted on that thread it's up and running.
Let me say that Dan is drooling over your King's Goblet.


hang10tiki Is that the Grog Cave-Cam I see???

I thought he had a hole in the floor of the cave.

I couldn't believe my luck when I captured that image. I was so happy to see it was noticed.

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

I'm getting so close to the end of the Wish List glazing. Thank you for your patience.

First up is Doo Wop's Jerry's Jungle Room mug.

This mug is an experiment. It is a night scene with some hints of color. Hopefully it will work out. I worry most about streaking of the blue.

First I painted the scene with underglaze 3 times to build it up.


The dots in the sky is a silver sparkle glaze that is filling up the stars.


Looking inside it is well glazed, nice and thick. It will turn white when fired.


Next I got some white resist.





After it dried overnight I scrapped off some of the glaze and then smoothed it with a wet towel.














I let the mug dry overnight again. I then choose this glaze for turning it into a night scene. For some pizazz the glaze has some sparkles.


I covered the whole mug with a first layer of glaze.


Next I wiped it off the high points.








I covered it with a second layer of blue glaze. This jar of glaze said that 2 or 3 layers were fine. So I used 2 and if it turns out wrong I can add a 3rd later.


Oh Doo Wop I hope this turns out as you wished.

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

Next up is my first test of the Sacramento Crawl mug due the first week in October.

I picked the glazes to use.


First I painted a clear around the rim.


Then I poured it into the mug and coated all of the insides by rotating the mug three times.


Then I poured it out being careful to not have the clear run down the outside of the mug. I held it upside down for 3 minutes.


I checked to make sure it was all coated and there were no skips.


I then painted wax resist along the top edge. That way if I touch the brown glaze to this area it will wipe off and not ruin the rim. I let this dry overnight.


As I paint the top of the mug the glaze runs off of the wax resist.


Now with the mug dry I can put my hand inside to hold it while I paint on the flat brown glaze.


All done I let it dry overnight.


Now I rubbed the glaze off of the tiki.


This is a test. I expect the final to look different from this one. I will tweak until I get it right.

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

Until tomorrow friends, Wendy

Wendy, I'm back from El Golfo Mexico. I didn't tell you this time cuz I know you worry

Hope Dan's eye is better, sometimes those bust blood vessels are caused by excessive coughing. I used to work for an Eye Bank removing donor eyes so if that get to bothering him too much just let me know and I can take it out!

You always come up with the coolest layered glaze effects Wendy! I'm interested in seeing how that sparkle glaze turns out

Jon, thanks for the upgrade to "Celebrity" status

What a fun update! I can't wait to see how the Jungle Room mug turns out. The sparkly colors should be fun with a nightime look. Got my fingers crossed on this one. So much layering and intricate details. WOOHOO!!

The coconut mug looks amazing already, I can only imagine the look once it is all fired. Best thing about test mugs is it adds to Dan's collection.

I don't wanna derail your post with miniature pics so that will wait for another day perhaps.

- Dale

Wendy, the mug is going to be wonderful, I know it is!
What an exciting set of pictures! I love that the very fine details of your carving are coming through with the layers of glaze. I'm able to see things I missed in other updates and they make me love the mug even more! Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into your work!
I keep looking at the monster and I can't believe how good he looks! My boyfriend will love that part of the mug the most. Even though there is a lady in a bikini with a nice rack right next to the monster, that big guy is what's going to get his attention!
And I'm so excited by your glaze choices! I love that the stars and the blue glaze have some sparkles!
Thank you again! I'm so excited to see how it turns out! You're fantastic, Wendy!

Ooohhhh, want to see how those glaze effects fire. I really dig the idea of a "night scene" on a mug. Love all of your details- as always.

Wendy, you make me want/need to get back to the studio-- been WAY too long. Thanks for keeping us all focused and smiling.

Mike, can you get me some better-working eyes? I keep needing thicker glasses. Not so much fun.

MadDogMike I watched all of your travel photos on facebook. So I did know and I was so happy when you were back home.
The blood red eye did the bruise protocol and turned yellow and is almost gone. He said thank you but he'll keep the eye.
Let hope the glazing on this mug works. I have no idea so I did a lot of finger crossing.

littlegiles photos when you are ready. We all would enjoy seeing your talent.
I'm so happy to hear there have been more fingers crossed, thank you.

DooWop if I knew this would turn out I'd be super happy to reach this point. At the worst it could just all turn blue. Time will tell. I hope everyone is enjoying the suspense. There are many photos coming up soon of all the pieces glazed.
I hope you will take photos of your boyfriend with the mug in his special area and post them here.

tigertail777 Dan's eye was just a burst blood vessel. We take a baby aspirin each day to ward off heart attacks and this is a side effect. It looks like a vampire eye but there is no pain or other symptom. He'd rather have this than pink eye any day.
Doo Wop picked a special design for her mug and I enjoyed making it.
We work 7 days a week on tiki and enjoy every minute.
I get to open the kiln later today.

hang10tiki hey there. Any more drink photos with my art? I like them posted here.

TikiAno the desire to work clay will never leave you and bring you joy forever. Get back to work!

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

Thank you all for your comments and visits. I eat this stuff up for breakfast. You all start my day with fun.

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

I had one more load to fire of Wish List #4 projects but not enough to load the kiln. So I decided to do one of Dan's wishes that I'd set aside. I call this the Moai with the Hat bowl.

I started with the bottom of the bowl. I like to glaze whatever areas I can. I even did the inside of the Moai.


Then I glazed the Moai with flat grey.


Once I had three layers on the Moai I used a wooden pick to scrap off the glaze that had gotten on the bowls surface.


Once I'd blow off the crumbs of glaze I used a wet brush to melt off the rest. Now it is so thin that it will not show up.


Next I covered it with the red with black specks glaze, one of my favorite glazes.


The last step was to use a black cobblestone glaze that separates and runs. The red will show through where the cracks are located.


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

Tiki Wahini your Rat Fink in Disneyland is up. What a challenge to glaze this fellow. He's another one that requires finger crossing. The entire mug was painted with underglaze that is not supposed to move.

Every glaze color was done 3 times. This took days with drying time. I'm showing a lot of photos but I could have done even more.

Rat Fink is mainly three colors, green, red and yellow. There were a few other colors to choose to use on different parts.


When Tiki Wahini sent the color chart she asked for yellow on the inside. Well I had a yellow glaze with green and red specks and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use that one. She also requested turquoise for the word Disneyland on the mouse ears hat.


Here I wiped off the excess turquoise glaze and


started painting the hat black.


The hat is drying and my color chart is visible.


Since I was working with black I painted in the words on the E ticket.


Black around the eyes and red gums. Started the first coat on the red body front


and back.


Finished the front.


I couldn't resist seeing how it looked with the hat.


This photo shows the straw hole in the hat.


Tiki Hula was over and had me pose for a couple of photos.


Thank you Tiki Hula. He is coming over tonight to see the kiln open and to lift out his huge and heavy bowl.


Tiki Hula looked up E ticket for Disneyland and we picked out colors that were as close as I had.


I painted the green on all the rats skin and white on the eyeballs and teeth.


Then I painted the E ticket. If the black doesn't come through I'll use enamel.


Yellow was painted on the BF. All the coats of colored glaze


are finished.


All that was left was two layers of clear glaze and a lot of praying.


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

This year I've done everything differently. I have shown all of the glazing. Starting tomorrow I'll show each kiln load, the problems that some mugs encountered and how I did my best to fix them. Some were simple glaze skips and some were problems with glazes that ran. You just never know what's going to happen.

I hope that this next wave of photos will be fun and informative. When the entire Wish List #4 is complete I will take a group photo and then I'll start to contact you all and to collect payment and to ship.

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

Here's a hint of what to come...

This photo was taken on 4/15/14 it is the first load glazed.



Cheers, Wendy

Love the Rat Fink Disney mug. That is going to be killer.
