Forgot to say I also got a a couple of pieces of wood shaped like axe type things from my brother. They were just sitting in his house when he moved in, from the old owners. Just cutouts, very plain. But im gonna tart em up all nice and pretty. Ill post pics of all this some day, maybe after I actually do something...

No. 1 is almost finished! He's got a couple of coats of stain so far. I might give him some dark highlights to really bring out the cracks, then some clear marine lacquer. Ill get multiple pics when I finish him (not just use the scanner).



Here is one of my next project (besides the 2.5 footer):



Its a piece of wood that was left at my brothers place by the old owner, and its shaped like a club. Theres another one, but more on that later. The pattern is just something I freehand sketched, inspired by maori style designs.

With that in mind, Im gonna use more maori style tiki for the finish. Once Ive cleaned it up, Im gonna basecoat the whole thing in silver spraypaint, then overlay this with a jade green (candy or metallic). Once this has been done, I will paint the un-engraved sections of the club in black. When I finish, I hope to have all the engarved sections nicely detailed in green. It should really pop against the black.

But Ive also got some cool plans for the other club...

Really nice hewey,
I would encourage you to use some different stain colors too. Its fun and really makes a difference by adding layers of color. They are usualy subtle, but make a huge difference in the overall finish. Great free hand on the club. Looking forward to seeing this one finished.

Hewey,

Comgrats on carving a great tiki. Do you have anything left to do or is he "done"? Very nice job. I'm glad to see you are still working on him down there. Neat club, was that shape already cut?

Thanks for the feedback, i hope to get back into it when I get home!

#1 still needs a little work, but only minor finishing (detail with dark stain, clearcoating). Hopefully be done within a week.

I got the club cut out in that shape already. I might take an outline of it for a template though. This club seems to be popular.

Kirby, the next club might do a little more damage. Its gonna be a little nastier and meaner...

I finished the club today - arent public holidays great! (its Australia Day here).

I finished the carving, then basecoated it in silver spraypaint. The silver gives the green a uniform base coat, and also brightens up the final colour.



Then I overlayed that with a green metallic.


Then I painted on all the black, except for the bits that I wanted green. It came out looking a little like this:



Actually, it looks better in real life. The green is more of an irredescent jade green. And the black is more black. I will get some proper pics of it and the little guy when the little guy has had another few coats of clear lacquer.

Cool work, hewey! Your drawing style is evident in the tiki too. Fine stuff!

The wood tiki has been given plenty of clear lacquar and came out sweet. It might be going to HMCs galley/bar en Melbourne. Ill post some "finished" pics (proper pics of teh whole piece, not just scannings) soon hopefully.
