MadDogMike Album Cover swap mug step by steps.

After using water to smooth my carving I let it dry. Some detail is lost when smoothing this way so I go back over my work with a wooden pick and do a bit more carving.


Before I bisque fire I'll sand and fine tune all my work again. So this is not totally done.


I used the same tool to outline the lettering and then to make scratches in the background.


Then where I wouldn't bump into any carvings I used this tool to continue the scratching around the backside.


Done for now. I'll finish my other projects and then I'll fine tune and bisque fire them all together.













Rough bottom will be sanded too.


Cheers, Wendy

Show off....

Awesome work Wendy, as always. You can send it right to me if you'd like....

Jon, both pieces look killer. You can put the wood burned piece in the mail right now for me, too. Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for it....

Thanks everyone. I swear looking at photos is the best way to spot errors. I looked at my posted photos and saw that I missed carving a snake on a tree at the far left screen. I'll have to add it. It's weird that I missed it. The Sacramento Crawl starts in the morning, yippee, Wendy

Incredible mug Wendy! Here is my favorite album cover, I really like the tikis used.

I go the opposite way as anthonymaye and do the blackline first.

I agree with Sophista-tiki-The lettering will make the piece and will first paint the color in, then screen print the lettering over the top The frame will be carved and look something like this.

Cy, that is not only an awesome idea, love how amazing it looks already!

I finally got started on my Art Crawl Piece. I'm trying out a new technique- since I'm not sure how this is going to work, I'm going to work on a separate one at the same time. I'll call these "A" and "B." This is a very boring beginning of the project, with just the basics so far... (You have been warned).

A. I got on the potter's wheel and threw this basic bowl shape:


yep, that's it for "A." More to come....

B. I threw out a slab and rolled it out flat....


I trimmed it and wrapped it around a piece of PVC to make the form of a Mug (to be)....


I know, still not exciting.

These are now under plastic, more work to be done.... stay tuned.... Hope everyone had/ is having a great weekend!
