TikiHula we have had a wonderful year so far and I've made a lot of tikis in between trips.

hang10tiki it's fun that we both chose the same guy as an alien.

Beachbumz it's a fun event in a beautiful setting. My only complaint is that all these events play the music so loud it hurts. I've lost so much of my hearing from the noise of my profession that I have to run away from all the entertainment less I go completely deaf.

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

More photos for the Alien Tiki swap.

After mixing up some colors for flesh I started to fill in the face.


I cut out the section that was dark and then using the other half I filled that missing portion in.


Then I took the other half off and started to lighten areas such as the cheeks.


I cut up the face again and used pieces to help me locate where to put the eyes.


It's like a puzzle that I just piece together.


Lips.


Eyeballs.


Teeth.


Now I'm getting somewhere. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki thank you so much for the over the top present today. I'll get a photo soon. Dan is having a blast.

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

Just a couple more steps completed for the Alien Tiki Swap.

I covered the sky with stars. I used a special ceramics paint that sparkles as you walk by. This makes the painting seem alive.


I also added a small earth in the background.


I've been working hard on the special kickstarter mugs. I'll find energy tomorrow to post some photos.

I hope you are all out having fun (except hang10 who is working) and enjoying life. Cheers, Wendy

What you say Wendy? What??

I hear ya though.. My ears are usually blocked up with so much sand
from getting pounded at the beach bodysurfing, etc that I don't mind
that too much.. Especially if it's some good ExoTica..

Beachbumz I remember Dan running from the beach yelling my ears are full of sand what do I do? I just said honey go dunk your head back in the ocean.

hang10tiki your Goof looks great. It's always fun to see where each swap ends up. Dan's playing your CD's every day.

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

The weekend started with Dan pruning in our backyard. He's earning more tiki money because I get to glaze instead of help.


Tiki Hula came by to help me out with a future project.


Mahalo Tiki came for a visit and we discussed glazing on each of his mug projects. They have a kiln and they are doing the work themselves.


I was so happy to see Mary's skirt. It had a Frankoma War God on the front and back. I'll be sending this photo to Joniece Frank. I help Joniece keep a record of how her design shows up. It's even been in a Tiki Art Shark painting and one by flounder.


ebTiki likes to see our trip hauls of tiki items. We were gone 13 days and searched everywhere along the way. Here's what we found.

I don't know why I picked up a mug of a British looking man but I did and found out he's special.


Have you figured out why?


It's Captain Cook who discovered the many islands we all love. Hawaii the best among them.


At the Portland Expo Dan found a skull lamp.


Then at an antique store he found a lamp that looks like an alien. Dan has a lamp fetish.


Here's the total haul.


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

I continue to work on the kickstarter mugs. 8 hours to glaze one was giving me a headache so I now spend two days to do one.
If only glaze took one layer instead of three to finish. These are all done with underglaze which is like chalk. That way it stays put and doesn't travel.

Here is the mug I altered. I choose to do a night scene and Tiki Atari said he'll call this the lake version rather than ocean.

























































The areas that have been left white will match the inside of the mug. A blue with silver sparkles as shown on the glaze test earlier. The whole mug will sparkle.

Thank you for visiting I look forward to your critiques. Wendy

Good to see you're still hard at work, Wendy!

Me - not so much.... my hubby is on vacation this week but we're staying home. Getting stuff accomplished in the mornings and floating in the pool in the afternoon and making tiki drinks at night. Last night was Painkillers. I haven't been inside much but always try to pop in for your thread.

hang10tiki You've made my painting so much better. When it's all done It would be wonderful to have it look this way one more time. Dan's going through the music every day. Sometimes when I glaze I listen too.

LoriLovesTiki it sounds like a perfect way to have a vacation. When you finish a project like your kitchen please share.

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

I continue to work each day on Tiki Atari's Horror in Clay project. These are the 1/1's that I have altered for him.

This was the first one I did to make the background different before he gave me a list of his ideas. He did let me choose all the glaze colors but with a focus on the Blue Teal which is his signature color for this creation of his.

Routine. Cover the mug in the Blue Teal.


Wipe it off the raised areas.








Paint each raised area with different colors of underglaze.








All done.








Next up is the Tapa version. Same procedure.























After it was wiped I used a different blue to color the flat areas of tapa.


















There has never been a fast way to do these mugs. It is all slow detailed work. I'm doing the last mug today then they will go into the kiln when they are completely dry.

It's in the 80's today and so nice. Cheers, Wendy

Ha ha ha. Good one!

Wendy, I watch your detailed glazing and I'm continually impressed with your patience and attention to detail. I truly hope everyone realizes that a) (the act of) glazing is painful (and slow and so much work) and b) no one does this as well- or as with much detail, as Wendy.

As painful as it is to watch you glaze these (and realizing how much work it is), I can't wait to see these fired!
