Maybe it's the photo, but this one already has a nice lived-in look. Like it washed up on the beach.

I can't wait to see how you finish it.

Do you have any scrap material from the same log that you can test? I'd try straight varnish and see what it looks like.

Also, I think the Paint Dept. people at Home Depot or Lowes will open some cans if you want to see what a particular stain's gonna look like before you buy. Just start with "natural" or some other light color & see how it looks. Or go darker from there if you like.

They will usually let you test the stain on some of those free wooden stir sticks or if you have some wood scraps they'll give them a dip instead.

That looks so nice. I love the mouth, which to me always makes or breaks a tiki. Very cool.

I'm always partial to lighter stains. To me they bring out the grain without hiding it or hiding any of the carving detail.

Can't wait to see it done!

I decided to stain the teeth too. They didnt look right left lighter. I also dished out the top of his head. I like the idea of functional tiki.

Still have to varnish it.





Here it is with varnish applied .

Rodeo, she's a beaut' & I like the tiki too!

Really, it looks like your staining has improved quite a bit. Did you use that stain preconditioner stuff the Benz suggested? The detail & features on this tiki is really cool. Is the 6 footer coming up next?

nice one rodeo, that stain adds a ton of character to the tiki. I'm a big fan of grain patterns.

well done!

is this one going to that store too? or is it for home decoration?

Cool work! He's got a kind of "dark glasses" look to him that makes him unique with lots of character.

hmmm, i checked your work on your first tiki rodeo. from the beginning sketch to the finished product..looks good, and i agree, i really like the stain. gives even more depth and character. you should keep going with this. i think you are developing a great talent. and the eyes are different, i like that. you made it your own.

Thanks everyone for your kind words.

Benz- no stain on the little one thats is unfortunatly natural, my kids are pasty white like me.

Here is a little 2 footer I made last night for a friend to give his dad as a b-day gift. I put on the back "to dad from ty and 50 years young" I hope his dad likes it. There is also a hollowed out spot for a citronella candle( since this is for a deck)

Thanks again

I would have never thought the back would look soo good. Everyone would have carved in and you carved out. I save the out for speacil cermanics but its easier to add letters then carve nice dimensional letters in. Thats clay and this is not. Cool.
