Buzzy for me it is the smooth surface and all, but mainly it is the fact that you are using dimension to create these forms. I wouldn't even mind them if these tikis had crude forms with crude surfaces. These new pieces are so well rounded and complete. You are getting really good. I want one

My constructive criticism comes when I post my work and stare at the pictures. Then I say, " You jackass, you should have lowered the ears." Then I ponder whether it's something I need to fix to make it better or something I need to learn to do to make it better next time. In this case, I figured out why I put the ears there based upon my initial layouts. After I actually carved it, I noticed that the roundness of the chin made the head lower than I thought when I was drawing it out. This is something I will fix by learning through doing this one. Next time I'll do the ears a step later in the shaping process, and put them lower.
Look how high the ears ears are. I'm a jackass!

Trick or misleading photography hides the mistakes, like high ears. Look how good this is when you cannot see the ears:

I still like it, but I always thank myself nonetheless for looking at my stuff with such a crirical eye and pointing out my mistakes to myself.

BAY PARK BUZZY: Thanks for pointing out the ear problem to me, now go F#&% off!

BENZART and HILTIKI: I haven't said it in a while, but you guys are still my Tiki Central OMGBFF's!!!!

Now to stain it. I tested a piece of basswood with most of the stains I have in stock, and I think cherry will look the best for this piece. If I did a crappier job and it wasn't so damn cute, I would have tried ebony stain, as were my initial intentions.

Goin' a Stainin' Buzzy Out!

What's the California Department of Fish and Game/tiki size limit on a pendant these days?
Stained. Magnifies a couple hook knife marks.


Buzzy Out!

Buzzy,

I love the progress you have made with your work. The last couple have been very very nice. This little Tang had me dying here, don't get me wrong - he's a fab carve, but....at first look he had me thinking of Fat Ba$tard when he was pinching his nipples.

Hey, so that last guy with the big open mouth, I was wondering why you didn't give him fingers and toes? I know you can do it, and it was just screaming for them? Keep going, I love watch the happenings here on this thread.

Gman out

Yo G. Were you talking the little open mouth guy or the big open mouth guy? As far as the fingers/toes, I've been examining older and reputable hawaiian styled carvings lately. I'm looking at how others aproached the arms and such, and have seen many claw or bulky arms with no finger detail. Just decided that that was how it was to be done on this one. Also, I was reading an old oceanic arts text from the sixties, and it mentioned that the Hawaiian styles were typified by simplified "pendulum arms." That phrase stuck in my head, and I am just trying to make pendulum arms. It's all practice...
(I'm honestly just throwing different shit on these and seeing how it looks when it is done. Sometimes it works, sometimes it don't... )


Here's last night's post Dexter project:

Little 4" basswood marq...

It's a nice day today, everything is dry, i'm thinking I should go out and work on the big guy today.

Here are the final pictures of the little rat:





I used cherry stain
and wiped it off in places to create the highlights in certain spots. Then I used a rub on polishing compound.

Oh yeah GMAN, I didn't see the Fat bastard when I made it, but now I do. I just thought he was tweaking his nipples. Thanks for pointing it out. I did have a comeback in case someone mentioned that I cut too much off.
" He don't care, He's so fat that he hasn't seen it in years anyway. Wouldn't even know it was missing, that guy!"

You guys all take care, I'm going to have an ice cold Wild Cherry Pepsi, walk around my estate, and carve something.

Buzzy Out!

Thanks for the staining tips, I really like how the highlights turned out. I was totally gonna carve a guy just like this as soon as I get my basswood cut down, now it'll look like I'm copying you. But mine will have better ears. Or more likely, no ears.
I'm not sure what to do with the hook knife marks and the staining, I'm having the same problem. The answer is probably more sanding. And more careful hook knife work to begin with.
I do really like how smooth and round you got this guy.

Nice practice stuff Buzzy. I would have told you that stain makes all the knife cuts show up Loudly but I figured you knew that already, plus I haven't been around much recently. Now you know my secret. Pretty soon you are gonna get addicted to the hook blade and you'll be trying to shave with it.! I wouldn't recommend that.
No Sun today?

According to my estimates, I'm tiki guy # 19,367 to do this one.
Do a Moai instead...

Got some sun today. In fact, it's still here. Very clear. Looking south towards Lindberg field and NAS North Island(what you see when you look out from the Bali Hai)

Coronado Islands, Mexico, behind Sports Arena

Just sunny enough to work on this:

No. I didn't know. I'll let you take credit for all my successes with the hookknife, but the failures, THOSE ARE MINE! Don't try to take the blame away from me by claiming you weren't here to stop me. Mieko's right, I could have sanded it more,done a better hookknife job...But it's a process, and this is only one step.
There were only 7 mistakes, and it was my 4th little piece. I was way happier with it than I expected to be. It's funny, the marks look worse on the computer screen than they do when I hold it. I need some different rotary bits because the one I was using couldn't quite fit where I needed it.

Back to Work...

Sunset on the Way, Buzzy Out!

Why thanks, Hewey. The secret is sandpaper...

Meanwhile, back at the Buzzy Ranch:


I only managed a couple minutes of work time on him last night.

Buzzy Out!

I've done about as much as I care to on this one


Had some interesting carving challenges, despite the apparent simplicity of the piece. Do I like it? Not yet.
Let's do some staining, it's still early.

Buzzy Out!

I used sedona red and toned it down 50%.

Tomorrow I will make this star shine...
