I've been meaning to ask you - what's to keep the sand from sticking to the resin? It's not like you'll end up with a clear "tree" with ants inside. Might work a little better in a dirt vs sand area where some of the dirt might dissolve off when you soaked it in water.

When do we get to see the final result?

Them Ant's should be ready by now for that thar resin science thingy right?



I got worried because when I went out there they were all gone...vanished into thin air. When I was digging out the resin, I hit a few tunnels that started spilling the ants out:

That chunk in the middle is the sand coated resin vien I'm following. I dig under it and let the sand fall away.

The resin went down pretty far. I used 64oz total. Here's a s far as I dug



I got all these pieces from the surface to as far as the resin seeped.

There were a few small side off shoots that I didn't dig out

Next, I cleaned them off with a hose. Here's the top surface chambers

The upper left clear spot was the surface hole

this is the side view of the top piece


I kept them in order as I pulld them out and pieced this back together:

I wasn't going to let that stop me...

However,

There were parts where the resin didn't fill up the chamber to the top, so those parts were clear of dirt on the the surface and had visible ants in them :


It;s reminiscent of Pompeii


Check the piece at the end where all the ants got caught in the deluge and were frozen together in clumps:



Now that science time is over, it's tiki time...

Pics soon!

I tried my fisheye lens feature for tonight's sunset:

Now that's some digital art!

Aside from being a digital artist, I'm also a man of the regular arts, a man of science, as well as a man of leisure. My last post was an expression from the science side of me. Now here's one from the regular arts side of me:

Today was get 'er done day. So I started by getting all the details carved and done on the second post. Top tiki done:


Five hours later, Bam! I'm done with the rest of it:


I had to adjourn for a few hours due to heat, but around dusk I had it all finish sanded and stained:



that completes the set:

Next, the installation part...I'm thinking i might need another piece for it as well.

But first, I have another tiki to carve for another part of the property. It will be a quicker one, and hopefully nothing will come up and I;ll be able`to start it tomorrow.


As you may have seen last week, I could barely get anything done because my work area was always in this state:

something had to be done...

I got a compresser and nail gun, so I practiced with it and took some leftover warped and split wood from BambooBen's last project and "freehanded" a shelf. I piled all my extra crap on it, and as a result I gained some valuable floor work space:

I have all kinds of room now! I moved the carpet so it's more like carving at home sweet home. Home sweet home with the furnace stuck on for a month, that is...

Best part of it is my new stereo shelf/tool holder. Mama dove doesn't seem to mind being so close to the tunes either:



In other news, one owl looked like this the other morning:


And, my dog learned how to swin across the lake last Monday!

She's a full on lake dog now! She even taught Ringo how to swim.

Do you put something on your tikis to protect/prolong them since they are sitting outside?



No moisture here to mess them...Log's already dry. So, yes I do, but no, I'm not right now...

PS Nice work



I'd have dove before toads too, but around here, it's always RABBIT SEASON:

Babalu: Poki says she's sorry...

Now to engage the leisure side of myself!

Lots of weather here the last few days. we've had everything but cold...

one day ended like this:


The next one started like this:


I caught one owl at sunrise yesterday:


After some crazy rain, yesterday ended like this:


In between the insect swarms and brutal weather, I got a log cleaned:


and the tiki drawn on it:


If I was in SD right now, it would be the height of Luau party rental season. I really started to miss doing that while being up here, so last weekend, I threw Ringo a party, complete with Tiki decor:

Unfortunately, Ringo doesn;t have any friends out here, so other than the decor, the party was a bust.

Poki didn't even show up for the party. Once she got a taste of fresh rabbit meat, she went full time hunter on me. She's been like this for three straight days now, waiting for a gopher to come out of the hole:


How pleasant! 102 out.
Buzzy Out!

The sun setting with some rain next to it:

Now it's back to full on bright sunny all day mode


Here's a little progress on the newest piece:

It's a bumatay "tribute." I'm trying to finish and install it before this auction is up:
Extremely Rare Vintage Tiki Mug

I'd been wanting to do a Bumatay and/or Guanko tribute for a liitle bit now. The other day I decide to go for it. when I logged on to TC to look for a reference picture, I noticed that auction link. Not wanting to bother myself with searching any further, I used that mug as a source.

So remember this: if you ever post a picture of a tiki on TC, there's a chance it will snagged and duplicated in less than a week.

Tonight's sunset seen through a piece of rusted farm equipment:


Here's the progresson on the body from yesterday evening:


And tonight:



Should be done with the final carving, details, and sanding tomorrow...



Owl update:
I saw one down on the lake's edge:



And finally grabbed the elusive owl drinking shot:


I need a pepsi.

Buzzy, we have been waiting for years for you to come visit the Buzzy bedroom we have in your honor.






Finally we see your truck in a parking lot near our home. We waited 24 hours until we had to leave. You hid didn't you. Well one of these days we'll find you! Wendy



PS will you be at Oasis and is there another pinup?

The owls are rad.

I've always wanted one as a pet. I will instead enjoy your great photos of them.

Love the tikis also! The grounds are going to look extra "tiki" with all the new work!
