Sure can Mike. You'll have to audition, oh wait you've already passed that part! This will be one of the most difficult glaze projects. I will be using wax resist to keep the brown glaze off of the white glaze. So it will be three big steps. Also I have to do a wipe on the tiki so he shows up well. There will be lots to do. But being productive is fun. Cheers, Wendy

Your are good at glazing too Tiki Hula.

All but 5 of the mugs have been bisque fired and washed.















Covered to keep the dust off until it is time to glaze. I need those last five mugs first.



This is such a wonderful crawl. I hope all our Sacramento Ohana and all our out of town friends attend this year.
There will be a day in Elk Grove a tiki hot spot.

Cheers, Wendy

Thanks Wendy, for posting all the wonderful updates and pictures of the 2014 mug...it looks awesome.

I will place the preliminary plans in the intro post, so still need to work on some more stops (mostly for Sunday).

If you are planning on crawling please post here to let me know how many will be with you. For example: John & Lisa Stewart and friend Kevin Lane will be crawling on all days.
I will keep a running list in the intro post, so watch for updates there.

Lloyd*AloHHHa the crawl mugs are now in hibernation while I finish Wish List #4 and the Tiki Atari kickstarter projects.
If you just want to visit give us a call. Unless we are running errands we are mostly home working on tikis and you are always welcome. Wendy

I think it will be good to finish the crawl at your place Nelson & Mary. Just need a couple of fillers between Swanberg's and your place for Sunday now.

Me and my little ohana have been getting sick for the past week, sorry that I didn't get a chance to call you guys on Sat. (Dan & Wendy), but now thank God, we are all better! Will there be anything that you all will need help with or are the mugs still in hibernation?

I picked the glazes to use.


First I painted a clear around the rim.


Then I poured it into the mug and coated all of the insides by rotating the mug three times.


Then I poured it out being careful to not have the clear run down the outside of the mug. I held it upside down for 3 minutes.


I checked to make sure it was all coated and there were no skips.


I then painted wax resist along the top edge. That way if I touch the brown glaze to this area it will wipe off and not ruin the rim. I let this dry overnight.


As I paint the top of the mug the glaze runs off of the wax resist.


Now with the mug dry I can put my hand inside to hold it while I paint on the flat brown glaze.


All done I let it dry overnight.


Now I rubbed the glaze off of the tiki.


This is a test. I expect the final to look different from this one. I will tweak until I get it right.
