mahalo to all. these are the final pics of this one...I promise! Sugar coated comments are
not solicited (you have all been generous in your comments-thanks). The aged look was created
with torch burning...no-gloss provincial stain...good ole' blackboard chalk (smashed up and
brushed into the detail) and finished off with furniture paste wax







that's it for this one.....good night and good luck!

I don't know Conga, I Think he might look better on My wall. You can send it down and we can try it out. I'll send you pix and you can see if he looks better or not then we can decide how to tell you thay he won't be coming back.
Seriously, this guy looks as if you have been carving for Many years. You have really outdone yerself this time. Excellent!!

Conga- That is a great result! It was a lot of fun to watch the carving progress. Now that it is finished, what are we going to do? I know, you better start something else cool now!
BTW, I suggest you find a way to work this carving into the next CD cover for the Mensters! (CongaTiki's musical group)

You're on top of the game! That PNG inspired tiki REALLY came out looking like it was carved in the interior and brought out by explorers. Your aging technique worked out great too. If I were you, I think I would spend a lot of time staring at this piece with a big fat grin on my face.

That is one astounding piece, Conga! I'm so glad we got to drink together... and carve. You're amazing - keep it up!

Conga,

Sorry to chime in late - I was hanging with some Mayan carvers down in Mexico......

First of all, this carving HAS to be your best yet. It is exquisite! Second, the process you used to put some age on it worked wonderfully. This is a magnificent piece of work all around. Thank you for taking the time to share all the progress pictures with us as well as including discussions of many of your techniques for achieving the final product. He is a piece to be very proud of. Very proud indeed! He looks so great in your house - I hope to see more pics of him soon.

-Gman
