No, I can do a bunch more. I just wanted to see if people were interested or not.
Thanks for the kind words.

Here are some pics of final pieces. If anyone wants a tiki by itself too, that would be cool by me.









Thanks for looking!

I've been trying some new techniques with the dremel. Thought I'd share a couple of pics. It's hard to tell in the picture because of the lighting, but I soaked the hook in some black tea for a while and it really gave it a great finish. Now I just have to work on getting my lines smoother.




Mahalo!

Thank you so much Skully and Benz!

Skully, I sent you a PM. I saw the trick about the tea staining on one of GMAN's posts, but I think I need to leave it in longer next time.

Ben, I'm not holding out, I swear! This is the first thing I've carved since Hukilau. I'd like to try a Maori figure next, maybe. It was neat to finally meet you in Florida, I only wish I had spent some time with you. If things work out, I may be living just a stones throw away from you after this spring. Cross your fingers for me.

Hey Conga!!

You snuck in that post before I saw it. Thanks for the kind words. The Florida trip was terrific, although a bit humbling. I have a LOT to learn!

It will be in the 30's tonight. Any snow by you yet?

Lovely Matau! I have also seen a guy in NZ who puts his nearly-finished bone carvings in a fish 'smoker', where they get a beauiful patina. I think the depth of blackening can be controlled by the length of time exposed. He then sands tham back a bit to lighten the colour of high spots. Looks great & brings the added dimension of smelling like a tribal cook-out! (smokey -not fishy!)

Thanks for the kind words, Tamapoutini. I hadn't thought of that fish smoker trick. I've been getting some great advice lately. Mahalo!

Great pendant Fink. I love your shapes and details. I sent you a PM about the bud burrs. Try the tea for 24 plus hours and then a quick buff to lighten the edges/high areas and accent the recessed areas.

Very nice bone work. What do you mean you have to get the lines smoother? They look smooth enough to me.

I have my fingures crossed for your move to FL. Who knows, next spring we may be neighbors.

Thats gotta be one of the sweetest fish hooks Ive seen! Great flwoing lines, even the way the cord is tied on is sweet. Very nice man. # 1 sends his love, even though he is wrapped in a baseball sized wad of paper ready to move house...
