Tiki Vato your Cactus Body Bob is glazes and waiting for kiln time.

All done and posing.












WOW, My mug is incredible. The attention to details in all your mugs are mind blowing. Cactus Bob will love his home in Bullhead City. I will post pictures once it arrives.

Tiki Vato what drink is appropriate for this mug?

Wendy, I am going to come up with a top shelf rum based cocktail. I am going to name the cocktail "Cactus Cooler".

Amazing stuff Wendy!

Love the Cactus Bob and the Tiki Modern is spot on. Great work!

I am still waiting to see what you come up with for your space tiki themed mug. I am sure it will be out of this world

Wendy,
!
I was so excited to see my wish list mug on FB and then my name in your thread's title!!!!

I can't wait to see how it looks after it's fired. I might want you to enhance the carving on the back but I'll wait to see how it looks when it's all done, if that's ok.

I love RVICTOR's mug and the cactus one too, can't wait to see how that splotchy green color looks on Jon's mug! I just love them all, as usual.

Woodtiki here are my best HINTS FOR GLAZING

1. always do glaze tests on a bisque strip of clay with smooth and indentation surfaces. This is how I do them (Babalu showed me how). The first strip on the bottom is three layers the second strip two layers and the top strip is one layer. Along the side I've made indentations so I can see how the glaze fills in the carving.


@. Some glaze is made to move and some will stay put. So if it has streaks then you need to only fire once because if you do it a second time it will continue to move do to the pull of gravity. Then the bottom of your mug becomes a mess and also it accumulates on any ledges. Crystal glazes with spots stay put.

3. Underglazes such as Duncan's Cover Coat stay put. They must be dry before you put the clear coat on top or they can smear and you won't even know it until the piece is out of the kiln. Only use Duncan's Brilliance clear gloss. All the others I have bought ran the underglaze and ruined my mugs.

4. Concepts underglaze stays put and it doesn't need a clear coat, it's built in. I don't trust it yet for very tiny detail. I need to test it more. So far it works for areas like Tiki Bob's eyes and mouth.

5. For crystal glazes like Mayco's Jungle Jems scrape the bottom of the jar because those crystals stick. You can shake it do a first and second coat and then scrap and add the last coat with the crystals placing them where you want them.

6. The metal glazes say to fire them at a higher temperature than the 06 glazes. So far they have looked fine when using 06. Good to test your own kiln.

I hope this helps.

=============
hang10tiki is that because we only re-run Tiki Bob's???

============
TikiVato your mug will be more green and brown when it fires. I love the name cocktail "Cactus Cooler" for the drink. Very cool.

=============
lunavideogames thank you. RVICTOR came up with a fun mug to match the book. The cactus was my idea because it was such a surprise to see cactus in Hawaii.

The Space ceramic is all out of the kiln and waiting to be glazed. It's in three pieces that I'll fuse together with glaze. I'll show it when the Wish List ends and I start on Dan's projects. I'm so happy you are interested.

=================
LoriLovesTiki the way this glaze works is that it fills in the indentations. The Huge word Jeff will not do that except at the bottom of each big letter. I can either add some of the blue crystals that I put on the inside into those letters now or after its fired I can use enamel paint in some way but then the mug can only be washed in cold water. Let me know ASAP.
Personally I think it would look good with the crystals in the letters.

I sure do enjoy your enthusiasm, I'm smiling right now.
=================
hang10tiki oh how I wish we had been there. So many of my tiki buddies in one place. Even the Creepy Creeps! We are considering going to Tiki Oasis after all. I don't want to miss out on all the hugs! Thank you for wearing my Tiki Bob necklace. You look so handsome.
==================
Tyber Tiki I stopped for a moment and up you popped. Good thing because I need to know the color for your small Bob statue.

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

Progress Report on Wish List #5

This mug is for Vance and Jenae Klinke who live near us. This is an instance of having a glaze choice that didn't work for the mug unless I did some extra fancy glazing with additional colors. Here's the journey of this HONU mug.

The glaze choice was one with many crystals. Crystals fill in carved detail making it invisible.


So after some thought I started by adding black inside all the carved indentations.


The side shows the fins are tiki heads.


Back.


Now I took a break while this dried and filled the mug with the requested crystal glaze for 10 seconds then poured out.


Now the black is dry and I'm wiping off the excess.


Wiping it off colors the rest of the mug grey.


So to fix the grey face I did three layers of Cover Coat white and black.


Now that this has dried I


have covered it with 2 coats of Brilliant Clear Gloss by Duncan.


Now I have changed over to Concepts glaze by Duncan. First a Caribbean Blue that matches the crystal glaze.


Nest to keep the crystal glaze away from the Honu I am adding this glaze around the Honu and inside the design.


All done and drying.


Now to further tie it in with the crystal glaze I'm adding a second color of dark green.


Trim is done.


Next I've done it to the Honu.
Done and drying.


The black I used was Cover Coat which needs a gloss cover or it will be flat like a buff peanut mug. So I painted in the gloss over the black.


Done and drying. I bet you can tell this mug was done over a few days.


Now it was time to fulfil the Wish using the color requested. This shows the crystals.


I did three layers placing the crystals where I wanted them to be.














This will either work or not. This one is different from most I've glazed. Fingers crossed. Cheers, Wendy

Everything looks so fantastic, Wendy! We love how our Maori lamp is shaping up and know it's going to be beautiful!!!!

Definitely agree that we wouldn't want all the excellent & detailed carving filled up/hidden with too much glaze so we are good with your call as to how dark this can go.


Thanks,

Tyber Tiki

Tyber Tiki I'm getting close to a kiln load!

hang10tiki it was such fun to scroll through the photos and to see that one. Big thank you always for sharing with us all.

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

If you know me you know I LOVE coincidences. Yesterday I put up all the photos of Vance's Honu/Turtle mug. Dan and I then took a walk and on the sidewalk Dan found this little non-sea Turtle. He brought it home to put into one of his village scenes.



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

Wish List #5 progress report.

I'll start with Johnny Velvet's Tiki Bob Super Carved mug.

He said he wanted it done with the exact Tiki Bob glaze color. So I did my best to match it to the Elvis Tiki Bob from 1961. We have a collection of Tiki Bob's and they are in a whole bunch of different browns.

I found the very best match. In fact it was a brown I had never used on a Bob before.


I made a mistake and poured it into the mug. Bob's are usually white inside and I'd forgotten to notice this.


After a lot of scrubbing I got it back out.


I did his face.


After the face had clear added I started on the body. After the first coat I flipped it over and filled in all the tiny areas missed.


Now after 3 layers he's all done.












===========================================
Next up is Kenneth G. McNeil's Fun Fake mug.

It's so much harder to copy than to just make something. Here's the comparison between my mug and Dan's real mug.




I glazed the inside and


then coated and wiped off black on the bottom.


I did the eyes and mouth and then covered the face in clear glaze.


I painted the body and


let it dry.


Now it was time to see just how small I could paint the letters. It's back and forth. Do the black, correct it with white, do the black.


The real mug was done with a decal. Painting this on was crazy hard. I left it here.


I covered it with clear.


Now it will be fired. Maybe Kenneth will fire me!

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

Next up is Professor G's little peanut mug wearing a Tiki Bob Maori mask for Halloween. Or...

I started with the inside.


Did the outside.


Wiped it off.


All done.


Doing it I got some brown on this face. I covered the face with 3 coats of white.


Now the face is done.


Next I did 3 coats of brown on the rims.


Now I did the Maori face.


I coated the rims with clear.


The body stays buff like a peanut mug and the face, rims and inside are gloss.


I maybe fired on this one too! If something doesn't look like what was anticipated then they can be rejected.

Now it's time to start my this day of glazing.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki you made my day!

Tiki Ano is being held hostage by Tiki Ari!!!

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

Wish List #5 progress report.

IDoVooDoo you Snake Charmer bowl is ready to fire. I hope you'll like my glaze choices. The one inside the bowl is brand new and it is the first time I've used it.

I choose all the colors for the woman and bowl.


I used a plastic tub to hold the bowl with the woman inside.


I used a darker Caribbean blue for the outside.


Two layers to start.


I wanted to start with the snake. I did the eyes black and then found that I needed help to glaze the snakes belly.


Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaan! He held the bowl upside down while I glazes the hard to reach spots.


Now the snake had three layers of red-brown glaze called fireluster.


Now I used a wet brush to scrub around the snake to flatten any fireluster glaze that was on her skin.


First skin layer.


Second and then the third layer.


Rosy pink.


Black Hair.


Inside the bowl is a swampy brown and darker Caribbean blue.


All done on the inside of the bowl.


Now I did the last layer of glaze on the outside of the bowl.


I've finished off the flower in her hair and now she's posing.











Now she'll line up for her turn in the kiln.

It's Friday. I hope you all have a great weekend. Cheers, Wendy
