I think something that might help, once I figure out how to do it is to put a visual signature at the bottom of my posts. The picture will be one of my art pieces and say "Tiki Tiger Studios" which I am thinking of getting a doing business as license as, and is the name of my facebook page.

The hilarious irony here is that I had two other names on here many years ago because I kept forgetting I had already registered with how far between my posts were then, and one of them was "tigertail". The more tigers the merrier I always say. Every real tiger has a completely unique stripe pattern you know, so there IS a way to tell them apart.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled art swap thread.

Jon, ha ha ha.

Zero, awesome. I think I may have to get this one, too.

Tigertail(s), I suppose each of you should answer whenever someone mentions (either one of) you. Or....

Thanks tigertail. How funny that I mixed you up. I have met tigertail777, one day I'll meet you.
Great art guys, funny comic. My mug is finished but I can load photos until I get back home.

Cheers, Wendy

I've finished the MadDogMike December 24th Swap Mug. Here's how it looks.















The inside is black with flat gold flakes.


I'm one view short. The next turn would have shown the serpent around the stake. I better get that before this ships out.
========================================================================================================================

What a fun swap. Thank you MadDogMike for getting us all to work. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, wow, the detail is amazing. Great color choices.

Both the test mug (V1.0) and the Exotica bowl came out of the kiln. First, the Martin Denny album cover:


I drew, then painted the design using a black glaze. I used a squeeze bottle for the finer details- which left a thicker glaze application than I had thought- thus a bit of running around the Moai's face. The rest of the glazes are Shinos, which demonstrate a variety of color based on the thickness of the application. The clay body is "Speckled Buff," which has specks that come out when it's high fired. The interior:



Exterior/ side:



This is the test version of the tiki mug for the Swap- it's a bit shorter and very wide- can hold a LOT of any beverage. The red lipstick underglaze was applied a bit too thick, I admit. The subsequent version should be a lot cleaner (it's being bisque fired now):


Interior:


The forehead pendant should have come out golden in color- not sure what happened- a test piece with the same glaze came out perfectly- most likely was the position in the kiln (I didn't load it).

Look forward to seeing everyone else's updates....

(some more work and photos on my thread).

MadDogMike we are so glad you are back home.

Cy thank you. You said just what I was thinking.

Tiki Ano the jewelry on the forehead of the Moai to match the cover art is precious.

This has been just fun. Wendy
