Hi Wendy,

I didn't take too many pictures. My original intention was to photograph the ladies at Tiki Oasis because their looks were so inspiring for my paintings. I realized I didn't need to take my own pictures because the ladies were posting pictures of themselves on Instagram. I loved their fashion, hair and make up choices.

Here's a photo of me with my painting. This is an outfit I used to wear for Hula dancing. I was so happy that I got to wear it again! I'm sad to say that my painting didn't sell at Tiki Oasis. It just hasn't found the right home yet! =)


I bought some bamboo motif frames from "The Guru Gallery." He is a framer in Costa Mesa. It's interesting to have the frames first that will inspire the painting.


Sandra

Aloha Jon and Janelle. Looks like you guys are having fun at Hula's!

VampiressRN hi Vamp, thank you. We are getting ready for the crawl. Today Dan swept out the man cave and back patio but they'll need it again before October. We are so happy with the new room set up and it was fun to share.


SandraFremgen it's really fun to find those old lamps and to jazz them up with a hundred more shells. Here's a close up.




Every room used to be a different country but now most of the rooms are tiki. I still have an Asian livingroom and an Egyptian master bedroom. VampiressRN also has an Egyptian master bedroom. We found that when we attended her first party.


SandraFremgen your painting for Oasis is over the top creative. You have such a wonderful talent and on top of painting you hula dance? Wow.

hang10tiki AHH. Those photos brought a big smile to my face. I didn't know Bob liked beer.

TikiHula aren't they at The Islands?

The room looks a lot better to us I'm happy to get a good response to the work.

TikiHula yep but I need to get more interesting fast the numbers have slowed down by 2/3'ds this month. Must be all the kids going back to school.

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

I started the day by repairing the corner of the counter in the kitchen. I glued the two pieces together and held them with tape.


Next I added more goop glue to the back to make it stronger.


Then I glued it back in place and held it there with tape until it set.


It's good enough for us.

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

The last batch of the Sacramento Crawl mugs are out of the kiln.


Dan completed the next step which was to sand all the little spikes of glaze off the bottoms.


After he did these he finished putting all the boxes together.

I will add some slight gold highlights to each coconut by hand starting soon.

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

Now it's time to read more and rest up for work tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

Great photos, glad to see Dan is earning his keep around there! (just kidding). Love the new crawl mugs, and the shell additions look great!

Sorry you got caught up on youtube- I really try to avoid it, still surprising that so many use it to listen to and discover new music and more!

Since the dominos have temporarily stopped falling, I guess you and Dan have time to enroll in a club. I like that it's open from 8:00AM until... rum?

TikiAno you are right. Dan works for tikis. He's take 4 that I've made just this week alone.

I had fun seeing Jimmy Fallon impersonating different singers. What a talent.

Where is this Hut Domino Club? I bet they have different Dominos.

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

I made another visit to Alpha Fired Arts and picked out 8 new glaze colors.

I lined each one up with a brush and started layering it on the pre-made tiles.


3 layers, 2 layers and at the top 1 layer of glaze.


Then two layers of clear glaze along the side.
I was so lucky. I only had 8 tiles left.



Time to make some more tiles for the next time I buy glaze. When I cut clay off poured ceramics I save it in tubs.


I just took out the pieces and rolled them flat.


I cut each piece, shaped it and made indentations along the side. Now they will sit until I have new things to fire.


I've finally started to glaze some of the items that have filled the top of my dining room table for months.














I had a repair man dump water in a tray and ruined some of my mugs. I was able to salvage the backside of one to turn it into a wall hanging. This will be a dark blue with brown highlights if all goes well.


I like to glaze as much as possible so I did the back too.


I've made some more necklaces.





I put them in the shed to continue drying. I need to glaze an entire kiln load before I fire.





Cheers, Wendy

Love all the redecorating! I love how you're getting ready for the crawl. That's another event I'd lie to attend.

hang10tiki just the way I like it!

LoriLovesTiki it's so much fun. Just a thought. You could organize one in your area.
The room morphed again today with more improvements. I'll have to photograph them when I know Dan's done.

ZeroTiki puffers are cute in ceramic art, not so much in the wide. We have one that I picked up today and got stuck, ouch!

===================================================================================
Another Glazing Day

This time I glazed the peanut mug that I changed into a Moai.

We wanted it to look like the Black Islander mugs. I covered it in black under-glaze. The inside was done in glossy black.


All covered I let it dry.


The next day I wiped off just enough to make it look like the classic Islander mug.


I then painted the top and bottom rims in glossy black.


Rappa Moai ready to fire.



Next up is a hula girl in a tapa decorated bowl. I choose these colors.


I started with filling in the tapa carving.


All done.


After it dried I wiped off the excess.


Next I glazed the inside of the bowl and her skin.


Then I started on the bottom of the bowl.


I finished the outside of the bowl.


The hardest part was the bottom of her hair. I just used my finger to rub glaze in place. Remember all glazing is done three times.


Lastly I did her skirt and lei.


I put it outside to dry. It's now in line to fire.


It's really fun to get to work on these projects that have been patiently waiting for months.

Cheers, Wendy
