Tyber Tiki #1 is yours. It was fun to tempt you with another!

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

When I sculpted and molded the 3 Fogcutter mugs it was so I could do customs without Tiki Bob involved. There are mugs out there that Bob doesn't show at all on the outside but you can see his face on the inside.

A few of Wish List #5 have been made on the new Fogcutter mugs. This one is for Professor G. He ordered 2 this is the first one. The clay dictates where the palms go and how many. None of these palm mugs are the same.

I save all the clay that I cut off cast mugs. I remove any plaster, I dunk it in water and save it in plastic airtight containers. I never run out of clay for doing custom mugs.


I use slip as glue.


Then I form a piece and stick it on.


I use this tool to cut into the added clay and


then I push down. This eliminates dangerous air pockets.























After the mug has been in plastic for a couple of days and has firmed up I go back and scrape away clay to make it more defined.



Then I smooth the clay with a wet brush.


Professor G on a prior Wish List asked me to add Palms to a Tiki Bob. He invented this style. Thank you sir!

This mug is being carved to match the first one I ever did and it was his blue Tiki Bob that started the
Brotherhood of the Blue Bobs. Did I get the name right?


I first did all of the lines.


Then I outlined the rocky wall.









Then I carved the rocky wall.


Then I smoothed it with the wet brush.



With that done it was time to crave the blocks to match the original.














Just now I said all done and then I realized that I did one more step to this mug to make it match the original. So I just took more photos and here they are.


There are now pebbles all around the beach scene.












One down one more to go! I will not match the trees on the next one nor will I put up a zillion photos of it.
I'm just sharing techniques that I use that will help those of you who are making your first mug.

I hope these help, cheers, Wendy

The Maori lamps are spectacular Wendy! So much fun to look at all the patterns and intricate sculpting you did!

Waking up to so many messages just touches my heart. You all rock!!! I'm lucky to have each of you.

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


TikiHula Tyber Tiki just decided that he wants his to be a lamp. He choose number one. I'll make a topper for him and then I'll drill holes in the back of both. Photos along the way. I love the comments on these thank you.


LoriLovesTiki I look forward to watching you work clay. I can't hardly put it down to do anything else. It's addictive.

little lost tiki you are the best. Whenever I get fatigued I think of all the wonderful art you are able to do and I keep on going. I sure enjoy watching you come up with new ideas like the master piano player!!! I still love birds best. See you soon, I hope.

hang10tiki you carve. How about a selfie with you and Janelle and one of your backyard tikis in the middle?

IDoVoodoo so cute. Let's start today with your HUGE Maori necklace. I'm not sure if I did it right, some of the moons are not as curved as your arm tattoos so you may reject it and I'll start over. So keep on scrolling down.

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

Wish List #5 progress.

Professor G's second palm tree Fogcutter mug. Since I let the clay dictate how they turn out they are very different.





















All done and posing together.











Next up is the HUGE necklace for IDoVooDoo based on his personal tattoos.














Here are my reference photos of his arms and drawings he did to help me out.


I use large grain sandpaper to make a rocky surface.





All done and ready for inspection. It's fine to point out any problems. I have to fulfil wishes.












Anyone been here? Next time we go on the Oregon coast we'll hunt it down.





Our tiki broke so now it is on it's side like so many Moai.





My cat keeps me company when I post. She thinks she's hiding.

The matching fogcutters flanking Island Bob are going to be spectacular. Thanks a ton, Ma'am, for the beautiful work.
