MDM, awesome- big giant glowing eyeballs sound great. Lighting effects even better. If only my throwing skills were better, have you heard of those artists who throw porcelain so thin it's slightly transparent? Google "translucent Porcelain" for some cool art work

Woodtiki, looks great.

Zero, you're on fire!

cy, love George Jetson w/ a fez.

This Swap is taking off like a second stage rocket. Er, or something like that.

Yes TikiAno I have seen that transluscent porcelain effect, very cool. As I remember it needs to be thrown very thin and fired at ^10. My little kiln is doing good to reach ^04

Cy, I missed the fez Damn, that's a GIANT fishing float lamp!

Mike, was just wondering....instead of throwing the porcelain, could you not make a mold of the porcelian pieces you will need and use porcelain slip to cast them and fire them separate before attching to the mug? Just a thought. I have never down either but I know the porcelain pieces I used to china paint were molded and made with slip.

Dale, it's usually difficult to attach fired pieces to wet clay since the fired is already shrunk and the wet will shrink as it dries and fires. But I think VanTiki is using fired porcelain teeth in wet paperclay so maybe it could work?

Here is the sketch and the painting so far.

Still not sure where to put the plastic flamingo. It just wouldn't be an original "tu" without a flamingo.

Great start TU!


Turns out it is more difficult to find green glowsticks that I thought! Not at Big 5, Pep Boys, Target, Dollar Tree. My DoItCenter hardware has yellow but not green. And WalMart has a 2 pack with one green and one yellow. Don't want to buy a bunch of those and throw out all the yellows Guess it's Amazon Prime then?

Mike, Party City should have glow sticks (I think).

I haven't yet thrown any porcelain, and throwing thinner walls is NOT my forte.

I suppose you could cast a very, very thin porcelain piece, but since it's pretty fragile to work with when it's so thin it would be tough to alter.

TU, looks great. cy, awesome (of course).

Can't wait to see more.... Including getting started working on my own!

You were right TikiAno, glow sticks at Party City. While I was there I picked up some nice plastic tikis to replace all the tacky palm and ceramic ones I had

Lookin' good Zero

Everyone's projects are looking great! I would have liked to jump in, but I think my platter is a little too full right now. I look forwards to seeing all of them completed!
