Here's the latest glaze test for the October Crawl mug. The color for the coconut and the lettering is now set. I still
need to run tests until I get the tiki to stand out.










Cheers, Wendy

A better image of the first glaze test mug. I'll still work to highlight the tiki. Wendy

Thank you so much. I love making the crawl mug each year. Wendy


Tiki Hula wanted to work so I gave him the next glazing test for the Sacramento Crawl mug to do.

First I had him spray the inside and outside with water to start the capillary action to hold the glaze on tighter.


Next he painted three layers on the tiki with a small brush.


Dan played music for us while we worked.


The front is all done.


The back lettering is all done.


I took over for a few moments to use a wet washcloth to rub off the excess glaze.


Working on one mug a day to perfect it the best I can.


It was hard being outside working on a kickstarter mug for Tiki Atari so we moved back inside. Tiki Hula painted 3 layers around the rim of the coconut.


Next I had him pour in the jar and swirl it around until all the inside was covered three times with the rotation.


The layers of glaze around the rim act like a barrier to keep the glaze from spilling out.


The last step was three layers of glaze on the outside of the coconut.


This test is different because the black was added first and covered with the brown glaze. If the black shows up this is how all the mugs will be done.

Done and drying.

Here's Mike's mug.

The Sacramento crawl mug test showed that three layers of glaze is too much. It ran to the bottom and glued to the stilts. Better that than to the shelf in the kiln. That's why I always fire on the stilts.


I knocked them off with a hammer and Dan will dremmel the bottom flat.


The highlighting with black on the tiki worked well. I'll probably do one more test and then I'll know what I want to do for the final mug.

You are welcome ChopTopDaddy. I bet your little daughter is running you around by now. She sure was quite at the last crawl.

Cheers, Wendy

I think the brown underglaze is perfect. Maybe just a coat or two of clear on top? And I vote for painting the tiki with the gold pinstripe paint....as long as it stays put with washings.

Great job Wendy!

That would be great. I now have a full line up to cover Friday night, Saturday & Sunday. Map is posted at the start of this thread. Sunday we will shop till we drop...Swanberg's in the morning, then the Marketplace in the afternoon at Matt's, and closing up the crawl at the Mahalo Tiki Shop with Nelson & Mary.

Post if you are going to crawl and PM me your email address for the address send out as we get closer to the event.

Check out the awesome t-shirt Lauren has at Swanberg's.

Also, only a few mugs left from Wendy, so post if you want one.
