GMAN, Tikiwahine, PDrake - Thanks for the feedback - Love it!
Benzart I am scared of heights - how high do I have to go to catch up with you mate?
You will have to slow your stuff down and give us poor guys a chance to catch up hehehe.
Hewey - Gee you're a hard taskmaster - I will try and get some pics of wintersun there were a couple of photographers there from mags and stuff - if only a certain TC person from Sydney could have been there to take my photos (apparently a real wiz with the camera!!!!)
Finkdaddy - the finish was a result of keeping at it until I got the finish I was after - I really wanted to get it too look like real skin and not wood - thanks so much for kind words.
I now have a nice list of orders for shrunken heads and one of the Australian Beatniks members has placed an order for a Beatnik head - this will be great fun to do - cant wait to get started on him.


ITS ALIVE!!!! - with a cool do!

Great shrunkin head carving! It looks great - and the staining came out looking like old, shriveled skin. I love the rocker doo!

you do great work, my friend

This is tiki is my "Giving Back/Open Hand Tiki" - I was contacted by a lady after appearing on a local TV show and she wanted to hire a tiki for her school plant stall - I decided to donate a tiki to the school so that they could raffle it off to raise more money - but what I didnt realise when making this offer was that it was in a weeks time .....I therefore carved a basic tiki which turned out pretty good.
This is the email from the school

"Marcus

In 2004, my husband and I convened the plant stall for our first time and our profit that year was $380.... last Sunday our profit was $820!!!! We sold mostly ALL of our plants and the interest generated in the Plant Stall due to the Tiki was incredible!! (In the minutes before the raffle was drawn, we had people rushing for tickets!) Many people took your business card and MANY asked about the Tiki and how we came to get it. One lady even asked if she could hug him! We sold almost 300 tickets. The lady who won was actually a helper at the Plant Stall and has worked in gardening and in nurseries. She was going to ring you anyway and enquire about a Tiki and then she won him!! She can't bear to put him outside at the moment; so has found him a spot inside her house. Thank you again so much..... I can't find words enough to thank you for what you did for our little school, and our kids. With best wishes, and cheers,

Kim Horwood"
