I really like that crackle glaze and how that turned out after using the ink. Great look!

Wow, I missed a few days and missed the kiln reveal! Love all the pieces- Hula, great job on glazing- well, almost as good as Wendy!

Jon, liked that pineapple parrot, too. And your custom piece- looks perfect!

Wendy, I'm curious, how do you prep the already fired pieces for another layer of glaze (to ensure that they "stick")? I'm not sure if there's a big difference on this process between high and low firing, but I'm always so impressed that your additions/ repairs are perfect!

Thanks for showing all!

Mahalo tikiano - yeah, Wendy might be better at glazing than I am

Wendy did such a great job painting my Zombie Village mug. I just can't get over it...

Just need some gold paint for the Al Dead bowl lettering and then it's fire photo time!

I love that crackle glaze so much! It is such a great look!
And it is so exciting to see the pieces come out of the kiln. If they're not perfect, it is fun to watch you work your magic so they'll be perfect!
It was another exciting post, Wendy!

littlegiles isn't it fun to have a glaze that cracks. I liked putting it on a mug that was similar to Greek statues.

TikiAno Tiki Hula picked all his glazes for his AL DEAD bowl and did a great job.

To re-glaze a piece I never know what color it will change to but darker always trumps lighter. When I re-glaze and area that had the glaze pop off then I rub it with a wet wash cloth to make sure all the dust is gone then I do it again.

Also I always fire on the 13.5 hour slowest ramp plus I preheat for hours too if I'm unsure whether or not they have completely dried.

TikiHula I'm looking forward to using the pin stripping paint on your AL DEAD bowl this weekend. I hope that works out.
I so glad you like your Zombie Village mug.

DooWop I am so happy that you liked the last post because I know you'll like this one even better because here comes your mug...

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

This is the last load for Wish List #4.

Here's the kiln unloaded. Tomorrow I will put up photos of the Wish List items that I took using black velvet and the MadDogMike studio.


Top shelf of the kiln.


First out was dartharnies dad's NY Yankee's mug.


The black of the letters ran into the white a bit so I used enamel to fine tune the logo and then the next day I baked it.


The flame for the crackled blue mug looked good so


into a black dye this time. It also worked to color the cracks.


Tiki Wahini your Rat Fink in Disneyland came out just fine without any glazing imperfections. More photos tomorrow.


I had room to fill in the kiln so I glazed one of Dan's wishes. The glaze didn't function as well as I wanted it too but he was happy with this one and has already hung it on a wall.


hang10tiki in the end I'm super happy with how your prize mug came out. The darker glaze looks so much richer. I added a few spots on the hands before this last firing and it made it better.


This second test on the same first mug for the Sacramento Crawl mug shows that the black lettering works well. The tiki doesn't stand out enough using the same glaze as the coconut so I'll be doing more tests until I get it just right.


Backside.


DooWop your mug is done. It doesn't show it here but the creature does have green highlights. Better photos tomorrow.


The bottom shelf with only the AL DEAD bowl left.


He took it out and took a look and


all the glaze has stayed on. That means it's the fourth time that is the charm.


WISH LIST #4 IS OFFICIALLY FINISHED.

I will soon send everyone an invoice with the cost of the project. Once you write back that your Wish was fulfilled I will find out the cost for shipping and send you an invoice. If you are not satisfied you do not have to accept what I have made.

I had a blast making each piece and I look forward to the next Wish List near the end of the year.

Cheers, Wendy

Such a feast for my eyes. They are very happy eyes indeed.

I really like the tiki on the coconut being the same color. It looks like someone carved it out of the shell. Perhaps a bit of highlighting/shading to make it stand out? Just my little brain running around unsupervised again.

Ahh Wendy! The mug looks like it turned out wonderfully! I'm so excited!
It was my boyfriend's birthday yesterday (the soon to be owner of that mug), so I didn't see this post until now (so I am sorry I didn't reply sooner). We ate ourselves into a food coma and fell asleep on the couch (and that makes us sound incredibly unexciting).
Thank you so much! It looks fantastic!

littlegiles I'll have to try some black highlighting and outlining as a test. You may have hit it on the nail head.

hang10tiki I've done that with you before.

DooWop I miss the good ol days when I could do a food coma and sleep. Sounds like a really fun birthday celebration to this senior citizen.

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

Wish List #4 update. All the mugs/bowls have been shipped as of today. I work on the honor system. I don't collect ahead and I ship that way too. I depend on everyone to be happy enough with their orders to send me a check when the box arrives and they find their wishes fulfilled.

Here are the last photos of the projects.

My wish with the crackle glaze. It came true.




Dan's Moai bowl wish.


Tiki Hula's Zombie Village mug.




Tiki Hula's AL DEAD bowl. Gold paint may go on the lettering and sword this weekend.









kingstiedye's Frankoma shakers.




Chippy's Maori Mug.




Corona Contessa's Zombies torch.




dartharnie's wishes.

Float necklaces were a gift for his daughter's, they match their bowls.


The front of their bowls.


The backs and


inside.


NY Yankee's mug for his dad. Front.


Back and


the side.


A Frankoma War God tea light holder.


The back was modified.


DooWop's mug for Jerry's Jungle Room












ebtiki's Suffering Bastard Bob. The flash made him look like a vampire.




hang10tikis wishes where for a huge necklace.




I included this photo because the color is closer to the actual color.


He won this mug on one of my contests.




LoriLovesTiki's Maori wall hanging.




MaukaHale Tiki Tapa Bob









OK I've hit my limit for posting photos for today. I'll finish up tomorrow. Meanwhile I have to think about what I'll be posting when the Wish list photos are all up. Hummmmm, Wendy

Wow Wendy! What an awesome group of Wish Listers this time around!! That crackle glaze you did is so cool. And the bowls, well stunning! Got my pics of Bob Fink and he is just unbelievable. You really outdid yourself! Can't wait 'til he's here in my hot little hands!

Love ALL of these. I forgot to write (earlier) that the crackle glaze looks fantastic as well.

What will come next??? I'm curious.

Great looking lineup! If the flash gives you problems with the pics, try using ambient light, or take them outside on a sunny day. You can use plain, white paper to bounce the light back to the object you are photographing.
