MadDogMike that was really fun to read. Sorry I'm missing you and Teresa at events this year. You two are always welcome here.
After last night the AL DEAD bowl is finished. See below.

hang10tiki than you for fixing the photos. I've learned to never turn my camera if I want to take a photo to post.
I like that coaster/candle holder fix. It really makes a mug look special.

TikiHula and then you ended up your day here painting your AL DEAD bowl with Mahalo Tiki's pin striping paint.

TikiAno your swap mug is great. I need to start posting photos of my project. I have worked about 30 minutes on it this week.

Holler Waller isn't it fun that tiki has so many areas in art. Tiki Bob started off in Africa not Hawaii. Good to see you here.

hang10tiki I can't remember who has what mug that I've made so I love these drink photos that bring it all back.

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

Mahalo Tiki loaned Tiki Hula a can of pin-striping paint in gold so that he could paint the letters on the Fez of the AL DEAD bowl. Thank you Nelson and Mary.


I started the first section and


then I turned it over to Tiki Hula.


This paint is very runny and wants to accumulate at the bottom of each section.


So every so often he would swipe up from the bottom to relocate the drip to the center.


It all worked out and


now the bowl is finished


and is worth showing off in a few angled views.





Tiki Hula will be at Caliente so please say hi and let him know if you liked his bowl design.


====================================================================
Speaking of Mahalo Tiki...it's a small world.

I went to Alpha Fired Arts to buy glaze from Brian the owner.


Dan hangs out on the couch while I walk through my dream store. I'd be there every day if it weren't an hours drive away.


When I checked out there on the counter was Mahalo Tiki's business card. He'd been there the day before to pick up supplies.
Nelson and Mary have a kiln now and plan to make mugs.


This is all such fun.
=====================================================================

Mahalo Tiki I abused your kindness. When Mike was painting his letters I painted the tiki on the Sacramento Crawl mug as a test.

I like it. I still haven't decided the final outcome for the mug. I have other tests in the works.

Same can of paint.


A very light layer.


It's looking good.


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

I have started to receive checks for the Wish List Projects. I work on the honor system. I ship and wait to be paid when everyone is happy with my work.

I had two wonderful surprises yesterday. The first was from DooWop who had the blue Creature mug made for Jerry her boyfriend.

She sent us the album cover that matched the mug I'd made along with a letter I'll have to save and a check I'll have to spend.
Thank you very much DooWop. We will treasure the album and letter.


Meet Jerry and see his Jerry's Jungle Room. Very cool.








I've never received presents for my work before. Imagine our surprise to have two in one day.

I did the Rat Fink in Disneyland for Tiki Wahini. She sent us two Reyn Spooner Hawaiian shirts in our sizes


and a mug Dan quickly grabbed from my hands.


He didn't have this excellent mug in his collection.


Thank you so much. We'll think of you when we wear the shirts and see the mug in the danlovestikis collection.

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

Well our Friday couldn't have been better. Now it's time to, what else, work on clay. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy/Dan - It was so much fun watching you two work together on my Rat Fink in Disneyland. Your "togetherness" is a large part of the charm of your thread. Plus of course your talent for ceramics and fabulous pics!! I've already started thinking about the next Wish List - what do I want next....hmmm..... Thanks again!

Happy Mother's Day


Tikiwahini thank you again for your over the top gifts and comments. What makes this thread the best are all of you who look and post. Every day is fun for us. I really couldn't do all this work without Dan's help.

MahaloTiki thank you so much and see you soon.

hang10tiki your photos sure enhance what goes on here.

VampiressRN did the Corona Contessa like her mug?

LoriLovesTiki there probably will be more of those today. This part of the mug has been a challenge.

Here are more of Mitch's photographs or our collection. With so many to choose from it was fun to see what he selected.

More on Tiki Atari's kickstarter project. I have now started on the UBER mugs. Those require a variant background after I fine tune the mug. Here's the first one that I have done.































I think of the swirl as a Maori pattern. The next two he has requested be PNG and Tapa. I'd better get busy. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy,

I always love to see your wok, and I'm very excited about Tiki Atari's new mug design that you're working on with him. But there's one thing that's niggling at me, and although I didn't want to say anything I thought now might be the time.

On the woman diving down, you commented earlier in the thread that you had to restore part of her buttock, which was lost in the molding process. But it looks to me like the buttock is actually on the wrong side? Like it's on the front of her leg?



Maybe it's just the angle, or maybe I haven't had enough Mai Tais, but it looks wrong to me.

Anyway, I hope you don't mind my commenting. Either way, it looks like it's going to be a great mug!

Cheers!

hang10tiki you've made me a star on General Hospital. Now if Rick Springfield was there on the same day well...

TikiTacky it's the angle. the enhanced butt cheek is part of the lower leg. Butt now that you mention it the upper leg looks like it's turned at a strange angle.

Here's the Tiki Farm version showing that area.


This part of the mug is where the woman turns from hula girl into a creature, she's morphing so we'll cut her some slack!

Thank you though, I had to go check the mugs. Butt I did just follow instructions from Tiki Atari. In the END I hope he's satisfied.

Cheers, Wendy

Ahh, now I see it! It's the butt cheek from the leg in front (which is bent). Hard to tell with the lighting. Thanks, I feel better now.

Wow, catching up again and I gotta say...Really impressive. the gold pin-striping looks perfect on the Al Dead bowl (what a piece of work. something to truly be proud of) and I really love it on the Sac. Crawl Coconut with the golden tiki. I know you aren't asking, but that is a design I could vote in favor of, for sure.

I also think the swirl pattern on the custom Uber Fogcutter is excellent. It gives it a bizarrely summer, beach boy vibe. If it wasn't for the fact the girl turns monster, the side with the girl and board would be a great print or album cover complete with a very cool sun radiating behind her.

On a slightly different note, yesterday both girls filled their custom bowls with popcorn and blueberries (an oddly yummy combo), snuggled under an A's blanket and watched a mini Three Stooges marathon with me. Thank you again.

TikiTacky me too.

dartharnie I have the coconut that Tiki Hula and I glazed. That may be the one but if it isn't the gold version will be at the top of my list too. The paint from Mahalo Tiki really made Tiki Hula's bowl perfect.

The Uber fogcutter mug has one side for tiki collectors and the rest for Horror in Clay collectors. Tiki Atari made a mug for everyone.

I won a bowl at the California State Fair when I was 10. I used to peel a half dozen pomegranates to fill the bowl and then lie in bed eating one seed at a time. I would pretent I was a princess. I still have the bowl. Good memories. I hope that the girls will have them too. Especially of the dad who got the bowls for them.

Babalu.


My Lanai tribute mug.


Vintage.


My 1/1 Bloody Maori severed head.


One of Dan's perfectly arraigned shelves.


Gravel Art by Suzanne.


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

Tiki Atari's next Uber mug. PNG as requested. I just used a design that was on a mask hanging on the wall next to me.

I started Uber number 2 by cleaning off all the cast designs on the surface.


Next I did a grid pattern on the bottom to represent movement in the water. She's diving in as the water moves out.


Next I added all the outlines for the PNG pattern. Front.


Back.


Next I started the PNG ovals.


All done with the pattern used completely around the top of the mug. Carving into clay is softer but similar to doing real PNG wood carving. I felt at one with the PNG population.












Tomorrow will be the Tapa Version.

Cheers, Wendy
