hang10tiki thank you sir. I am so happy that this hand-painted style is working out.

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

Next I have two huge bowls to glaze for Mahalo Tiki aka Nelson Parker. After I got this done I thought to myself, Oh Oh, I should have waited to see it the mugs turned out or had problems. Oh well. The first bowl is done.

I cleaned glaze off the rim and


then I put the bowl on top of my turn table tower so that I save my back. I did a rim of "sand" colored glaze around the bottom.


I decided to do a Tiki Bob bowl because there haven't been many made compared to mugs. I did all the bodies.


Once I had all the bodies outlined a raised the level of the "sand" so that the tikis were on the beach.


After many layers of sand I did layers for the faces.


All done and posing.











I have to have everything ready for pick up by the end of this week. Tick Tock Tick Tock Tiki Tiki Tiki. Wendy

hang10tiki your wish has come true.

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

The HORRORS of ceramic art.

I opened the kiln and learned a huge lesson about under-glaze versus regular glazes.

When drying I saw some small separation lines (cracks like on the desert floor) in the glaze on the inside bottoms of the mugs. I thought when the glaze melts they will come together. NO they separated much worse.


So all but 6 mugs needed to have the insides re-glazed with regular glaze to fill the separations.


Out of the 36 mugs I had these three where the glaze separated or sloughed off.


Here is the other side.


The robot melted and


the cat drooled glaze on it's face and separated in other areas.


So I will play with these three mugs to see if I can save them.


I brought all the mugs into the kitchen to re-glaze.


I would take them to the garage to dry in front of the fan. Then into the shed.


At the end of two days I was ready to fire again. The glaze inside the mugs was still damp so I did a 10 hour pre-heat and


a 13.5 hour slow ramp. Plenty of time to dry and to fire.


My hope is that the mugs that were OK will not separate and run with this second firing.

Cheers, Wendy

Ouch! After all that effort put into those mugs, having things fall apart like that's gotta hurt. My condolences! You make everything look so easy, I think it's easy for us bystanders to forget how much uncertainty is involved in the process.

hang10tiki I have buyers lined up for this weird Tiki Bob but before that happened he was touched up a bit and put into the kiln. I decided that the bisque showing needed a slight coat of glaze. He may change completely or get worse.

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

I'm still working on projects for Nelson Parker aka Mahalo Tiki. It's possible that this one will not make it into the batch since firing takes so long.

I wanted to experiment with both the black and white Pingo glazes which are flat.


I don not have Moai in my brain so I printed some photos in the right size and I outlined them on the bowl (which is glazed and dry with under-glaze) with an underglaze pencil. Then I looked at these photos as I painted with glaze.








I filled in all the outlines with a regular black self glossing FN Mayco under-glaze as a base. It will be deeper black and glossy. I think it sticks better than Pingo. I could be wrong.


Days after it dried I scraped off some of the black so I could set the volcanos behind the tikis.


I then painted on "sand" colored glaze.


From this point on it's easy to see what I am doing. I am layering on Pingo and adding color to the hats. If you have questions about a photos please ask.






























Again I have attached Duncan red crystals to the areas I want to be very red.



The glazing is done for now. But all of this is unpredictable and so I expect to touch it up once it is out of the kiln.

lunavideogames it's so fun to see you show up here.

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


The Forbidden Island sale is this Saturday and Sunday 9/30 and 10/1. Wow it covers two months. Mahalo Tiki aka Nelson Parker has picked up all the mugs I've made so I need to post faster to catch up to the sale.

Here are the touch ups I did to fix the mugs that sagged.


I did the touch ups with them on their sides so the glaze wouldn't run off.


I only added white glaze where bisque was exposed. I then re-did the eyes and mouth, who knows what will happen next.


Watch out the robot is having a meltdown and shock waves are flying through the air!


All done.


Out of the kiln the Tiki Bob huge bowl needed a lot of touch ups.


Done.


All of these mugs lost the grey glaze during the firing.


I put a layer of glaze on each of these mugs.


I let them dry completely.


Then I used this wire tool to scratch off glaze.


I catch the powdered glaze in a towel.


All done.


All of the insides of the mugs repaired with the Blue Caprice glaze by Mayco Jungle Gems. My favorite glaze of all time.


Nelson picked up the mugs last night. I will show completed photos soon. Wendy

Sometimes its more informative to see how you fix problems than when things work perfectly the first time. I appreciate that you aren't shy about sharing stuff like this.


So here's something that looks like it worked as intended. What did you do on the grass for the Disney mask mugs? Not too many layers a glaze at once?
This is the kind of effect I was hoping for some of the ideas I have rollin' around in my head.



Would it be informative to do a test piece where you add 2-3 (1-2 ?) layers at a time between successive firings?
It does seem different glazes have different personalities.

hang10tiki that's how this all started. Dan says, "Hey Wendy can you repair this chip?"

Philot The grass was done with 1. Purple underglaze 2. Dark Green underglaze 3. Light green underglaze.
Being a painter years before ceramics I tend to glaze the way I painted.

I have tried so many different routes. The first time I fired those mugs they were fine and the grey was good but I had to glaze the skips on the inside. The second firing removed the grey. The third firing after glazing again worked.

All the other mugs that were fired extra times didn't change. It's hit and miss. Wendy

Every load that I could fire before this weekend and the Forbidden Island sale has been done. I had a few fails but for the most part I am happy with the number of mugs that Nelson Parker aka Mahalo Tiki has picked up.


Bottom shelf before firing.


Bottom shelf after firing.


Top shelf before firing.


Top Shelf after firing.


The huge Moai bowl came out with some issues so it will not be going. I will re-glaze and fire it in the future.


This cat came out looking ill so I will doctor it up in the future.


Of the four volcano mugs I made two of them cracked. This may have happened because I made the glaze in the bottom of the mug too thick. That stresses the mug.


Tomorrow I will share all the photos of the pieces that will be at the sale. Cheers, Wendy

PS after the sale he will put them on his web page

Inside the bowl.



Four Tiki Bob mugs with the Bobs going all the way around the mugs.

The robots only had one that had a meltdown.


Careful he is malfunctioning.


The backside shows the planets they came from.


Mid-century cats.
