Now the fun begins. I love it when you all post photos of the projects in their new homes.

dartharnie the pictures of your girls tells me you are a wonderful dad. Did they like what I put on the bottoms? In a few years they won't remember me but they'll always remember the dad who wanted them to have these bowls. Love Dad. It was a joy to make them for you and for grand-dad too.

Clarita you are so kind. I just grin when I read all these nice posts. No reason I look forward to TC each day. Thank you.

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

Progress Report for on-going projects.

Tiki Atari's kickstarter project is a super hard one for me. Coming out of the mold every part needs work. It's all tiny detail. It takes me one day to do one mug.

I have just finished the first series a run of 12 and put them in a line to fine tune each one. By comparison I can see if I forgot anything.

Front of the mug.


One side of the mug with the girl having dived into the water.


After a day of fine tuning I turned them upside down so that the bottom can dry easier. Today I reverse this.


Next I start on a short run of a topless version. All total I'm working on 23 mugs with these 12 finished with the sculpting.

===================================================================
I decided to uncover the tables to see what projects I have left to glaze when kickstarter finishes.


I guess there will be lots of things to finish this summer. Several are Dan's wishes that I put aside so I could finish faster.


At least I am months ahead on the Sacramento Crawl mugs. Cool.



Thanks for the visit, Wendy

PS we are keeping sheets etc. on our furniture because our cat has gone crazy. We remove them for company.

Those kickstarter mugs look so good all lined up. And I can attest that they have to have a TON of Wendy's golden touch added when they come out of the mold because of all the fine detail that isn't picked up by the mold process. When she's done, each one is a work of art!

How much do I love Cold Stone's ice cream....let me count the ways...wait, I can't count that high

Happy Birthday Tavarua Tiki! Did you take it inside for a drink? One of their strong Mai Tais maybe? Don't you just love the lava texture and how much detail she added to the City of Refuge tikis?

Wendy,

My Moai arrived safely today and I love it! As usual, Dan did a fantastic packing job.

I'll post a pic when he's hung in the hut.

Wendy,
Bob Fink arrived safe and sound yesterday but I didn't get a look at him 'til today - unbelievable! Your work is just fantastic. He turned out just as I imagined him. I couldn't be happier!! I'll post a pic if I can figure out how!

MaukaHale that's a good trick. At least she doesn't rip anything that's not attached.

TikiHula your peanutbutter banana ice cream is waiting for you. Did you get any sleep after eating the Chocolate Cookie Dough batch?

It's great to have a witness to all the hard work.

Tavarua Tiki I love love love the photo. Did you drink from the mug? Are you glad I talked you into the gray glaze?
Happy Birthday.

hang10tiki I'm so sad to miss Caliente.

LoriLovesTiki I look forward to the photo, I'm glad you are happy.

Tikiwahini I was so lucky with your Rat. Sometimes the glaze does exactly what I want, sometimes it doesn't. Your mug was a lucky mug.

To post a photo long on then on my thread click on Post Reply. Then Choose Add images to your post. Then click on Browse.
Then choose pictures and then from your own files click on a photo. Next click on open and then on Submit.
When you have the photos highlight them and do control C, then in the dialog box when you want to post it click on control V.

One thing to remember is you choose them in backward order so that when you transfer them they are in the right order. I hope that helps because I look forward to photos.

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

kingstiedye has a huge bowl by Gecko that is very fragile. I have repaired smaller versions for other friends in the past. So when this one had three pieces broken off (one by a housekeeper, one by Bullet and one by Dan) I volunteered to fix it.

First I put glue on the bowl and the piece broken off. When they got tacky I stuck them together.


One in place I used tape to keep the piece steady.


Then I did it on two more pieces.


After these had dried overnight. I took off the tape and added Elmer's wood putty.


I did it on the front and the underside.


You can add matching texture or smooth it with a wet finger or


sand it after it dries. I speed-ed it up with a high dryer.


I painted it with a matching red enamel and


did the lava highlights.


When I finished even my cat couldn't find the repairs.


The bowl is now back home at kingstiedye in his wonderful collection.

Cheers, Wendy

Tavarua Tiki did drink out of it at Bali Hai. I saw it with my own eyes. That is a great mug Wendy and the glaze job is one of the best I have ever seen. Keep up the amazing work!

The goblet in its natural state...
Thanks for all the birthday wishes everyone! Yes Wendy great choice on the glaze, it is amazing!
Jon you "crack" me up with that Grog joke!
Treg beat me to it, yes the goblet was christened with not one but TWO Bali Hai Mai Tais!!!
Last question, who in their right minds shoots "bullets" at Gecko mugs??? I heard Elvis would shoot expensive things like cars/tv's, but man that's crazy to damage a Gecko bowl with a bullet! ...Or maybe bullet is the family pet!
