Loved the read on Tiki Microcosms!

Aloha,

Benella, thanks for your response. I don┬┤t realy know what kind of wood it is.
I think it could be beech (in french it´s hêtre).
Amiti├ęs!


Seeksurf, thanks for the great picture. I laughed again, when I saw the funny guy with his umbrella in the background.
His eyes loks like fried egg. I remember his name is "Gumby". Great Microcosms!
I also enjoy the
Tiki Microcosms thread and hope that more people will be inspirated to create one.

O.K. and here are the next pictures of my PNG box. First I continued with the door and milled
out the pattern. It was not realy easy to hold still and make clean lines. The heck with it,
It┬┤s handcrafted! Now I┬┤ll try out to mix some natural pigment colors for the pattern.
I read at Basement Kahuna┬┤s thread that you can use buttermilk for mixing natural colors.

And than another step I have done. This will be the lamp of the tiki shack.
It┬┤s out of a small glass bottle. I cut the bottle neck, fixed a LED at the hole and knot the net around the glass ball.
I have done it yesterday and need all the evening.

Mahalo and a great week, Kai

Aloha,

Bennella thanks for your response!


Here is my next update of the PNG box. In the last two days I carved the first figures for the microcosm.
Two PNG tree trums out of balsa wood and grounded with different teak stain. They are still not finish, yet.
That is only the base coat.

That flat bowl will be the fire place with a LED inside and full of glowing firewood.
I turned it out of oak wood. Hope you enjoy the latest steps.
Cheers, Kai

Very good looking work my friend. Especially the little fellow on the second picture. I saw a boy like him but a bit bigger last week at the Musee du quai Branly. Very good.

Benjamin.

Awesome little carves!
One question though, just how big are they?

Yes, this is going to be cool.

I was also curious about the sizes they look great.

Thank you very much guys!

Benella, if I will ever come to your beautiful town, we have to visit the museum together.

Heath and seeksurf, the size of the smaller tiki is about 3,9 inch and the biger one is about 5,9 inch.

Basement Kahuna, I will try to color them and also the door with the method you talked in your thread.
To mix pigments with buttermilk. I also heard that yogurt is great to.

Have somebody any experience with this technique? Can you give me a tip?

Hey guys,

it┤s long time ago, but now I have five new pics for you.
I checked out the natural method to mix pigments with yogurt.
Here you can see the result - the finished coloring of the two PNG drum tikis.







Mahalo, Haikai

This is looking very cool, Kai. It give the hole thing a vintage look. I like that. Hard to believe, that it will hold. Will you put some clear varnish on to secure it?
And did I mentioned, that the patterns you carved into the door recently are awesome? I guess, no.
So, the patterns you carved into the door recently are awesome.
