then sanded it a lot...

Thanks you guys -

It's been slow - I had too many irons in the fire, but that's over now. I'd like to finish this project up before CoonTiki and get hackin on some bigger, more tiki-like stuff!

Another "Island Scene" update. I screwed up the base something fierce, so when I get back from Coon Tiki I'll replace it.

I tried to put "sand" on the "beach", so first I used red garnet sand and mixed it into the polyurethane. But that was too dark, so I removed that and tried white sand. Really bad idea. I'm just going to use walnut, or oak maybe, like the wahine said to do in the first place. I'm beginning to hate this dumb little thing.

Instead of putting sand on the base, why not use wood and create a texture. Take the wood and smash it with a meat tenderizer - hammer. Stain it, sand it, hammer it and repeat. Its a nice wooden sculpture there's no reason to try and cover up the wood. Good luck.

Carve #8 - Inspired by Tiki Diablo at Coon Tiki - Here's some progress pictures:

These three pictures were taken at Coon Tiki:



Here's tang with his litter mates: (Silverline's got a little too close to the fire last night)


This one is in my backyard, before burning:
