Rodeo,

Man that looks great! I bet those flames are tough to do. Has the wood grain given you any trouble around the flame edges? I imagine it would want to pull out on you across the edges. Keep going man! We want to see lots more! Maybe another update tonight?

Are we gonna see a color stain job?

Thanks Guys

Gman , the grain does sometime cause trouble , I draw the flames out a little thicker than needed anticipating that I will lose some of the material when they are carved out.

Here is todays progress report... I am still slow!!!



I was torn about paint vs stain on this project. Because I love to see the grain of a carving. So the first attempt the paint covered really well and no grain was visible.I sanded it off and here is where its at. Now the darker red that is deeper in the wing is showing more than the rest of the wing, but after applying a little more paint to the middle it has evened out nice.



I have started to paint the middle and the veins , should be done soon .

Mahalo for looking.

Rodeo,

That's cool man. I grew up on Roth and "Dutch", before he became a fashion. Always loved their work and emulated it. Nothing wrong with eyeballs and veins. Keep it up. COOL!

RT,
They both look great. You are going nice and deep on the flames, I like. Like GMAN said, thats got to be tough going....I started digging out some old hot rod pics I've taken over the years at the Turkey Rod run in Daytona every November. I'll throw you a couple Rat Finks for inspiration. Looking forward to seeing how they turn out. With you, they be kick ass for sure.

Hewey, Loki thanks for the compliments. Pops thank you , means alot coming from a hotrodder like yourself.

Here it is almost done. Turned out pretty good considering my lack of painting skills. It just needs a couple of coats of poly and then I need to find somewhere to hang it.

The eye turned out great Rodeo!!! I vote for over the Garage, you know how the neighbors love sharing in your hobby... and as an added bonus since none of them probably know who Von Dutch is they will think it's another one of your weird creepy Tiki items!!!

Very sweet Rodeo! I likes it. Nor bad for a cat who can't paint
