Nothing more obnoxious than a drunken parrot

Littlegiles, I thought of sending you the bowl, but is decided that I just couldn't put you through that kind of torture

Wendy, I forgot you did that Gecko shrunken head mug. Maybe you can do one that looks like me someday....? Gotta work with you on a severed head version first

Wendy, good fixes on some of those issues. Can't wait to see the next round of kiln magic.

Wendy you really captured Gecko's likeness, even down to his great puka shell necklace. Love all the work that you do! Can't wait to see how the kiln comes out this round!

hang10tiki I'm used to re-working mugs but I usually don't mix up and use the wrong glaze. See what happens next.

Tiki Hula was the recipe you found on line the same as the one hang10tiki used?

TikiHula Gecko'z was just a tribute statue to a great tiki artist.

littlegiles it's always a relief when the fix works.

hang10tiki schnapps? What is that?

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

The third load is ready to be removed and inspected.


The ladies lined up and were found ready for the next step. No glazing defects.
Miss Monk-ii, Corona Contessa, VampiressRN they will change appearance for tomorrows post. The blue is a test mug.


The outlining of Abby's Harry Potter's plaque in black worked out just right.


Bottom shelf next up.


dartharnie's dads New York Yankee's mug, kingstiedye's Frankoma salt and peppers, and hang10tiki's prize.


Tavarua Tiki's King's Place of Refuge Goblet I hope you like it. It turned out just as I had hoped.


Guess what another small strip of glaze on the edge popped off. It will go back into the kiln with the next batch.


I carried it all to the table and then into the house where I will inspect each piece and do whatever is needed.


Cheers, Wendy

Great work Wendy. You and Mike have really outdone yourselves with the Al Dead Bowl. Hope that glaze shivering gets fixed.

WOW! A kiln opening full of absolute magic! I think my favorite this time around is the refuge goblet, really turned out stunning. All of the pieces did!

There is nothing better than to wake up to all your messages. Thank you all.


MadDogMike me too. Remember my purple Tiki Bob bowl that took 6 fires to get it right and then it slid off the car hood and broke on the ground? I have Tiki Hula load and unload the kiln and carry his bowl everywhere.

hang10tiki you too.

tigertail777 I like Tavaura Tiki's wish too, I'm so happy the glazing worked out.

You newest painting is looking so scary good.

LoriLovesTiki that's one of my all time favorite glazes. Even better up close.

Tavarua Tiki there are so many great tiki artists that I feel humbled all the time.

hang10tiki my best drink is Hawaiian snow with pineapple juice. Dan bought me a Snowy machine for my birthday last summer.
Keep them coming please.

VampiressRN its fun to have tiki peeps so interested in what happens behind the scenes. Oh, that's what I do here too.

littlegiles the Wish List projects are so varied that they each teach me something different about how glaze works. This run has been one of the best learning sets for me.

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

Wow, when I put all the photos together I could see how much work I'd done to finish off this second to the last load.

I was so happy to see that the black glaze completely covered the yellow glaze where all the black letters had run.
So now I painted enamel into the indentations for dartharnie's daughter's name and


for one of her talents.



First off with Tiki Hula watching I hand painted his Zombie Village mug with enamel paint.


All done. He requested the nipples be left the same color as the rest of the skin.


Next I painted (starting at the front) Miss Monk-ii's, Corona Contessa's and VampiressRN's Zombie Torches.


After 24 hours they went into the oven to bake.


All right ladies do you accept the rose...I mean the mugs?








I granted my own wish which was to learn how to do the cracked glazing on the outside of mugs. So on this Tiki Atari kickstarter glaze test I covered it with a crackle glaze. However it ran to the bottom. This is why I always fire on spikes. It stuck to the spikes but not to the shelf.


There's a lot of glaze to remove so Dan got out the dremmel to use.


He showed off the bottom that he had fixed beautifully.


I bought some India Ink but I couldn't find where I put it. So I used some rubber stamp ink which is also permanent.


I smeared it all over the mug


front and back.


Then I put it in a bag of water so the mug would pull the water and ink further inside. I left it overnight.


In the morning I wiped off the ink and found the lovely


cracks. I am so happy.


Now it was time to paint a flame with white and blue and crack it too.


So the clear crackle glaze is brown when it starts out.


Next up the Sacramento Crawl mug glaze test. I am very happy with the flat brown glaze. Good thing because I've bought 12 pints to start with on this project. However wiping it off the tiki left it in a very pink color. Not good at all.



So I painted the tiki in the same brown as another test and then since the lettering didn't show up I



painted it all in black glaze.


The glaze on hang10tiki's Honu Hideaway mug came out perfectly but I found some more glaze skips on the inside. So I glazed it again and back in the kiln it will go.


dartharnies dad's NY Yankee's mug didn't have enough clear glaze on some places so I did it again too.


Bottom Shelf of the kiln and


the top shelf of the kiln.


Tiki Hula glazed the small strip on the top where the glaze came out. In this load I'm firing DooWop's creature mug and Tiki Wahini's Rat Fink mug. There were two really hard to glaze projects. My finger's are crossed.

Cheers, Wendy
