Tiki Wahini I think your Rasta Bob is finished being sculpted. Of course there is always fine tuning once these Wish List Projects dry, then sanding, firing, glazing and firing again.

I rolled out a sheet of clay and left it out to dry overnight. That made it firm enough to cut into this shape.


Then I started forming the hands.


Now it's ready to attach.


I made two arms one I attached to the back of the guitar the other to Rasta Bob.


I stuck it in place and supported it with a bunched up paper towel. I put a plastic bag over it all and it sat overnight.


The next day I went to work on the dreadlocks to add texture.


Tikiwahini requested Tiki Central tapa on his body so I started carving that, oh and with the addition of MJ leaves.


Next I worked on texture for the hat.


I used her drawings every step of the way. Here's Rasta Bob posing with Tikiwahini's drawings. He's all done.











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

Next up...I poured another HUGE Maori lamp/mug. Tyber Tiki You get a choice of either one and Dan will take what is left.


I have to let Dan on the Wish List too because he works for tikis. He doesn't get a choice between the two. I did them differently. Tyber Tiki I'll put up photos every day until it is finished and you choose.

Dan working for tikis.


Out of the mold the next day.


Ready to start carving.


I didn't use a photo for this one I just carved it in a manner that felt right.








Step by Step. Cheers, Wendy

Fantastic progress you are making Wendy, great details on Rasta Bob! I now yearn for Marley, ganja, and rum mon.

I sure do love getting up to mail!


Tikiwahini great, now he is very slowly drying out. Too much rum!

LoriLovesTiki I have so much fun with the Wish List and all the creativity that you all have brought it it.

hang10tiki back at you.

cy I checked out your carving thread recently and saw your cannibal tiki. Wow! Glad you like Bob.

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

Wish List Progress. This piece is for Paul G. of Australia. He is joining the Brotherhood of the Blue Bob stated by Professor G.


To this one I'm adding a kangaroo and a cassowary.


More palms and


more palms.


The clay is mushy so I just work with it every so often.


I changed the detail of the carving too.


I did the pebbles all the way around the face and


then I sanded them with water on a brush.


Bob is done and is now posing.














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

Progress on the second HUGE Maori Lamp/mug for Tyber Tiki to check out.

Out of the mold.


This time I work with the design over the entire back rather than from one side to the other.











The back is finished. Now just the front is left to do.














After these dry I go back and deepen some areas that water brushing filled up.

I appreciate you notes and visits, thank you all, Wendy

Wow Wendy! I am just catching up on this thread...your progress on wish list #5 is incredible and your mugs in progress look simply amazing! Really love the textured details on Rasta Bob.

You have truly spoiled me by providing an option to choosing between the two huge Maoris. They both look great and I really like what you have done with Huge Maori #2. I'll enthusiastically follow the progress and when the time comes...make the difficult but privileged decision you graciously granted me

Thanks again for your amazing work. It is a treat to follow along.

Tyber Tiki

Wendy, the more you post the more my mouth hits the floor. The floor needs to be cleaned, so as you can imagine it's not the best scenario for me. Or, it could be better, so please stop with the ridiculously impressive carving. Jeez louise.

Okay, just kidding, but Bob Tikimarley is awesome (love the details on his dreads and his lid/ hat) as well as the newest carve(s). Wowzers.

Okay, maybe it's time to mop the floor to prevent further, um, situations.

hang10tiki you too!

Tyber Tiki Rasta Bob was a lot of fun to sculpt. Glazing that fellow is going to be a bigger challenge.
I'm so happy you like having a choice. There are differences. One has the club plain while one has it carved with designs. Just small things.

TikiAno this is why I do the Wish Lists. I never would have come up with a Rasta Bob. I'm so happy you are going to take over cleaning the floors for Maya. Tiki Ari likes that too. You are so cute.

Beachbumz thank you for making me blush, it's good for my skin.
I bet your mug will have a ukulele? I'm looking forward to seeing that.
I'll tell Dan about the beard. We are enjoying seeing how his has such patterns.
If only his head had some white hairs it would all match.
The best photos we took were with you two men. What a treat to visit you.


Thank you everyone. Waking up to mail is a treat and it starts me day off energized. You are all so nice and I appreciate it very much.

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

Wish List #5. Tyber Tiki they are both done now. At the bottom I have put them together so you could easily figure out which one you would like to have.

Here I have added the side doodads.


The next day I was able to carve them.


This shows the one hand carved and the other carved and cleaned with water on a brush. For this fellow I added eyeballs.


I've begun the carving. One area at a time.


All done all the way around.


I put a hole in the top for the fixture.


Once it is dry I will sand it down to fit. I will also carve a hole in the back for the chord.











Whichever one is not chosen by Tyber Tiki it will become Dan's for his work in helping me do ceramics. He does all the outdoor cleanup rain or shine.

Dan's will be a lamp. I had to figure out how to do this so I decided to carve a top.


It will shrink as it dries so I made it larger than the tiki because the tiki is already dry.



Comparison photos for Tyber Tiki.
























Tyber Tiki if you need close ups of any area to help you decide let me know.

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

Back to work! Wendy

Those lamps are out of the park.
That's no entry level project.

IDoVoodoo I'll have photos for your wishes soon! Glad you like these.


Will carve thank you. Dan's not too happy lifting the 60 pound molds for these big projects. He wishes I'd go back to painting. Maybe I'll do both and then he'll have a few breaks.


=============================================
Wish List #5 Progress Report

Kenneth G. McN's wish was for a mug like #8 that was chosen by Jen Tiki.

I did the top as a mirror image and then changed the designs too.


Here is where I started to remove larger areas of clay.


It's a slow process.


Then I smooth it all with a brush and water.








Now that the grooves are in place I finished the carving.


All done and posing like the ham Tiki Bob is...











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

The next Wish is Tikiman's. He started with a wish for one Zombie Torch and ended up choosing two.

After I finish painting them with enamel they bake in the home oven for 45 minutes and then cool down before removing.














Here's one in progress.














This black version has silver sparkles that shine in the sun. Here he just looks dusty.

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

I'll hope that these Wishes have been fulfilled. I'm on to the next and the next! Cheers, Wendy
