Seeksurf no molds or casting ,every piece is hand built original.The process is called mesh concrete sculpture,a wire frame covered with mortar.Here is one that is just about to be finished and one recently completed

page 1 and 2 will give you a idea how it is done.Capo

You have mastered this process and those guys look great.

Capotiki, I Love how well your tikis have progressed, the detail is so smooth and fine and the finish is suburb. Excellent stuff.

Ben thanks for the kindness,I Made this one for a San Diego Chargers football fan who is a good friend.I added the lightening bolts by overlaying Portland cement with a bonding agent on to the original sculpture after drying.I spent about 40 hours which is way more than I have spent on any piece.It is a gift........
