littlegiles and it is so much fun. I hope Dan's bowl turns out. I'm just learning how to use that glaze.

TikiHula your wish is granted, see below.

DooWop you saw the look in my eyes didn't you?

Tikiwahini Dan tells me I squeal like a little pig. I'm glad I'm not alone. I liked picturing that.

LoriLovesTiki its so much fun.

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

It has taken four kiln loads to fire glaze onto all of the Wish List projects. Some items had to be glazed four times to make them come out just right.

Here is what happened with the first load.


Top shelf of the kiln.


The first out is Volcano Bob for Mondo-by-the-bay. This rocky black glaze with red lava always has to be glazed twice. The red as it cools contracts and pulls some black up and off the ceramic. It's an easy fix.


Tiki Hula glazed this Zombie Torch mug and the glaze came out too thin. It will need another coat.


Hello Kitty for WaikikianMoeKele had no problems.


THe King's Goblet for Mondo-by-the-bay had no problems and my new lava technique worked out, I'm so happy.


Suffering Bastard Bob (idea by MP who allowed me to make a few) for ebtiki has no problems.


MaukaHale your Tapa Bob is also finished.





Mondo-by-the-bay your Tapa Bob is done. Up close it looks even better.





Mondo-by-the-bay your Bumatay with fins bowl is finished.


Bottom shelf to be unloaded.


hang10tiki your wish that turned into a prize is not finished. Front


and backside ok but a bit dull.


The inside had glaze skips that I will repair. One looks like a crack but it's just a thin line of glaze.



Mondo-by-the-bay you Drunken Bamboo Bob is complete.






Chippy your Maori Bob turned out really well. I did a very thick layer of white and it didn't move so it's rounded and has a great feel.


Moai Mike your super heavy mug needs a tune up.


I'll be putting more glaze on the Moai and turning the candy looking words more grey to blend in better.


Here's the inside color.


I have to take a break right before Tiki Hula takes his out. We are running over to kingstiedyes to return a bowl.
See you later, Wendy

And there is the magic. Even with some skips and a few repairs and touchups, those look AMAZING! Love the Bumatay bowl...think it is my favorite so far. Guess I just love those blues and greens. They all look great.

Can't wait to see the BIG BOWL! Such a tease, ending right before you took him out.

Can't wait to see more - including mine!!!!

littlegiles cool thank you. OK here comes Tiki Hula's bowl.

MaukaHale thank goodness!

LoriLovesTiki I like carving them.

Chippy this is one of Dan's and my all time favorites due to how the glaze turned out. I bet you are at Don the Beachcomber's today with all our friends setting up HB tikis booth. I wish we were there but we are really tiki busy at home.

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

Here comes Tiki Hula's Shrunken Head bowl with a Shriner's Fez volcano. Mahalo Tiki is going to let him use some pin-striping paint to add gold to the lettering on the Fez. When that happens we'll have more photos. That will really pull this AL DEAD bowl together.









All of these on the table are fine and need no repairs.


These three and


this one need tuneups.


So it was back to the table. Tiki Hula decided that he wanted to thicken the glaze on parts of his bowl so he went to work too.


Here's what he accomplished while


I painted glaze on the letters and


moai of this mug.


Next I glazed the Volcano Bob. Three layers at the base of each red lava flow and one layer on the rest.






He got tired and lay down.


Tiki Hula added glaze to his Zombie Torch.




Once everything was dry it all went back into the kiln.
Bottom shelf.


I had a Bumatay bowl that I'd made a while back. I added glaze to the fish to change their color and put it in this load.
Top shelf and a


different angle.


I also tuned-up hang10tikis peanut mug. I made a mistake, photos tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

I got to take the bowl home as well as the killer Zombie Village mug. I'm still reeling at how great they both came out. Wendy is so much fun to work with and is so skilled. She has fun every minute - even while she's "complaining" about how many projects she has going at once she has a big smile on her face. Wish I could have that every minute I'm at MY job

I told Wendy that if someone offered me the original Zombie Village mug or the one she made me, I'd take hers every time.

Hang10, I should have had Wendy make one of the heads look like me - that would have been funny

We took lots of great photos that Wendy will probably post soon, but once I get the lettering done it'll be time to add the FIRE and get the bowl in action. Can't wait!

Tiki Hula, that bowl is so horrid....I think you should just send it to me so that you don't have to look at it. I'm always happy to help out. All jokes aside, that bowl is killer!

Everything looks so great and another kiln full of magic. WOOHOO!!

Mike...that bowl is just killer.

Wendy all your pictures are such a joy. You have certainly become the expert...especially at glazing.

VampiressRN here comes your and Corona Contessa's Zombie Torches first steps.

kingstiedye it's magic you snuck them out of my kiln!

hang10tiki we thank you and everyone. Your mug ended up with three firings. You'll see the story here. I really enjoy your drink photos in front of my art. Tiki Hula looked up the recipe for this drink.

Big Kahuna I think that and the Mayan Temple of the Jaguar bowls are the largest things I've made.

TikiHula (Hang10, I should have had Wendy make one of the heads look like me - that would have been funny)

I did Gecko as himself on one side and as a shrunken head on the other. I could have done you Tiki Hula.




littlegiles Dan offered to keep the AL DEAD bowl too. This is what happens with the Wish List all kinds of surprises.


VampiressRN if only...I still have so much to learn. I had lots of problems with dartharnies kids bowls. I managed to fix them but it took lots of work.

hang10tiki I love that parrot. You made it didn't you?

=====================================================================
I opened the kiln again. Each of these posts are coming together but the work was many days apart.

Top load. Instantly I could see my Bumatay fish retained their blue color and it came out looking just the same. LoriLovesTiki your Moai is not that dark. I forgot to take a photo on this day but when I post the black velvet photos yours will view better.


Bottom shelf. Oh I hear the doorbell...


kingstiedye came by to glaze his shakers.


dartharnie I could see glaze skips on the top of the dolphin.


I added glaze to this area and a few other places on the front.


I decided that Abby's bowl would look better if I outlined the crest with black.


All done.


Her name had blurred into the yellow paint so I covered the whole area with black. I will then paint her name in red enamel.


Same problem with the wand maker words.



Where was my brain? Duh I don't know. I glazed the inside of the mug with gloss and then without thinking touched up the face. Horrors.


That was the same Walnut but gloss glaze instead of under glaze buff.


So now the whole mug needed to have the gloss applied.


After this dried I again wiped it off the high surfaces but I forgot to take a photo of that step.


After sitting inside for an hour Tiki Hula's Shriner's hat popped off a strip of glaze on the edge.


So it was glazed again and put out to dry with


all the other mugs that I'd been working on.


Backsides of the Zombie Torch mugs.


When these were dry I loaded the bottom shelf and


then the top shelf of the kiln.


Here's a close up of the first test for the Sacramento Crawl mug.


Now it's time to get back to fine tuning a Tiki Atari kickstarter mug. It takes one day to do one mug! These are really detailed mugs. He did a great design.

Cheers, Wendy
