Aloha friends,

Iīm fine! The last night was silent and no strange things happened.
Thank Tiki!

AlohaStation, surf-n-turf, benella, Benzart, McTiki, GMAN, Lake Surfer and Tamapoutini,
thank you very much for these nice words on my work.

Iīm glad that you guys enjoy my the finish of the Tiki
From time to time I was very doubtful with the coloring.
First I wanted to introduce some red parts into the highlights,
but that looked like an haunted house figure with blood.
So I decided to use the brow color to stay in the same spectrum.
I had chromatics lessons in my study, but not especially for wood and so it was rather a experiment.
But itīs the same by the complete progress. It developed himself by the way.
So mostly I must change my gameplan.

Special thanks to surf-n-turf for this amazing and cool picture of the Tiki.
Itīs so funny and well-fitting. Thanks for your time and effort.
I think Iīll show it on our homepage, when Iīll post the Tiki pictures.

Benella, yes you are right! There are some similarities between Hulk and the spiky fellow.
perhaps, itīs like in surf-n-turfīs picture. The Tiki gets nervous if there are beauty girls in the near.

So, Gman is correct! I must get rid of him soon, before he catches my steady or all the other girls.
And till then I follow Benzartīs tip, to lock him up in the closet.
So everyone is save till he move to austria.

I think Michael will has him under control, cause he is his owner.

Oh, what I will do next?
Since a long time Iīm working on a voodoo box.
I want to adapt an old first aid box for a voodoo armoire.
But it needs a little bit more time, befor I want to show the pictures.

At this time Iīm building with ramba-zamba our first Tiki mugs, which will produced by cheeky-tiki.
Extra, I have a cooperation with an jeweler from Munich.
We want to create a Tiki ring out of silver.
In January I will start to create the new Tiki colection for our next years exebitions.

Greetings, Haikai

What a bummer! Itīs happend! I didnīt warned ramba-zamba, before he vistited the closet.

Michael "ramba zamba" is a very lucky man because he is the owner of this tiki and the owner of the previous lono too (if I'm not wrong) I think that Ramba Zamba must play to the lotery... or show his own carvings !

Benella, thats a mistake. There are too many Michaels in my environment.
Micheal (ramba-zamba) thatīs the guy on the last picture.
He is my college and friend. He is a painter and also a member on TC.
Here is his thread:
ramba-zamba

Michael the owner of the Lono is an other guy,
but he lifes in the same town like my college and me.

And at last the owner of the last Tiki (with the spikes) is Michael from Austria.
So, you see thatīs 3 different people with the same name.
With the name Peter itīs the same thing. I think I know 5!

Greetings, Kai

Iorana friends,

finally I find the time to drop a line. Itīs my first time to post something on TC for this year.
So itīs time for some new pictures of my latest project.
But first I want to thank benella, Yubaba, hewey and rugbymatt for their nice entries and greetings.
Spezial thank to benella for "Bump" ramba-zambaīs and my threads.

And now I want to show you some new pics of my last month work.
Perhaps you can remember, that I told you I would create a voodoo box.
The impulse to create this box, was once again bigbrotiki with his thread
"Tiki Microcosms".
For this I used an old wooden first aid box, which I found in my garage.

First I grinded the box, removed the old paint, gave it some ornaments and carved a new doorknob.
I tryed to give the ornaments and the doorknob some marquesan style and finished all together
with different wood stains.


And now we open the creepy box and look inside!

And here you can the see the lord of the voodoo box. The little fellow is a native of the
easter island. A magician from the "Long Ear" clan. I figured him out of clay and finished
him with some colors, plumes, shells and maize hair.
On the left and right corner are two bamboo pipes with Tiki faces.
The faces are also from clay and I colored them with the same wood stain.
On the left side you can also see a little shrunken head wit shells and plumes.
The interior of the box I decorated with exotic materials like bamboo, palm matting, shells....
The electric with the battery, I hid under the double bottom. When you open the door,
the lamps will lighten automatically.

Here you can see the lord a little bit better with his tattoos and jewel.


Here are the bamboo pipes with the Tiki faces. I closed their eyes with a transparent plastic film.
Behind the pipes are little LED lamps and so the Tiki eyes are lighten.

On the bottom of the bamboo pipes you can open little doors with fixed boxes.
Into the boxes you can put joss sticks. If you ignite them and close the doors,
the Tikis will spit smoke out of their mouth.

Here you can see the shrunken head a little bit better. I figured him also out of clay
and gave him maize hair.
Behind this door you can find the mystical secret of the voodoo box. But be careful,
becaus the the lord will save the secret very well!
On the door I fixed some servicing which look like tapa and little bamboo bars.

Inside the the small room is a pot with some real bones and a fearsome skull with shell eyes.
The walls I also decorated with different tapa servicing and behind the bone pot
you can see the Tiki god of the whole voodoo box. He hold the mastery above "Mana" and "Taboo".

O.K. and here you can see the complete lighting when itīs dark. Down right,
you can see the electronic switch. The lamps will turn off, if you close the door of the box.

In the last picture can see a little bit the smoke, when it gets out of the Tikiīs mouth.
Itīs hart to take a picture of the smoke, but I hope you will visualize it.


So, now you have seen what I did in the last time. I hope you will enjoy it.
Next Iīll start with my upcoming project, the Tiki ring out of silver.
So long greetings from Bavaria,

Haikai
