Here's some more AAC tikis from me (still not a patch on Palama or AA's tikis though!)

This is just painted with artists acrylic, only for indoor use really. All hand painted.




This one was painted in exterior grade acrylic. Too glossy for my liking. Original plan was to sponge on multiple coats of different greys in a matt finish to give a more genuine stone look but I ran out of time.



These moai are still natural AAC. Never got around to finishing them off...


'lava moai', I think this was acrylic exterior paint...
Start with a nice fat moai

carve some lines into him

paint it red

and then black




A very rough quicky, good fun Did a rough carving, then attacked it with the corner of a chisel for that real rough look.

Paint was automotive gold metallic (in a spraycan), laid on real thick, followed by black auto spray whilst the gold was still wet. Notice how the gold metallic pools in the AAC holes? cool eh?

Thanks for resurrecting this thread, Hewey. I forgot about it! Lots of good finishing ideas.

Here's the one I had abandonded because I didn't know what to paint it with. Actually, I've done a lot more carving on it since these pictures were taken.

Where can I buy AAC in Southern California? This looks like fun!

Hey griffithpark-

Check out this thread from Aaron's Akua on AAC.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=10055&forum=7&hilite=AAC

You can't get it at places like Home Depot, so you have to order it. AA's thread has got addresses to where you can score some. Good luck!

Holy Moai! NEEAATTTTT Dave. Gel us.


So, Shawn Styles of Channel 8 just did a bit on AAC. Wont burn down. It is the newest building material for homes in burn zones!

Even mentioned that it was invented in 1929.

Gave this one a repaint, with metallic copper, followed by a black wash. Came out really cool

I've painted one of them now, and the 2nd one will follow shortly. I hacked the surface up to make it a little more interesting, then painted it gold with a black wash.


The comparison between the painted tiki and the natural AAC is interesting.
