Your last small tiki is a masterpiece. where do you find the influence? Was it like the guam ?

The last Tiki was kind of weird. I started with the inside of one eye and went from there, I didn't draw it, I just did it. I guess the inspiration comes from the thousand images of Tikis I've seen on TC.

Thanks Ben

Here is a bigger format (at least for me) It's a Marquesan head, with a small Tahitian Tattoo behind the right ear. This is my fist palm log. It was fun, I was so freshly cut it was like carving a pumpkin. He is about 13" hight and 9" in diameter.

Really Nice stuff Tahitiki, The Pumpkin was great and the tiki before that was Excellent and this last one is remarkable. I Love the care you took to curl the center of the eyes like you did. Your detail is Immaculate. You need to get Serious about this stuff and do some tiki!

Thanks Benzart,

and here is the final result.
I wanted to hang it outside, but I had to bring it back inside for the winter. Not sure he would have make it through the rain.
He is about 18" tall.

That is a stunning piece of work, excellent. What wood did you use and what sort of stain.
Regards
Flynny

Thanks benella and McTiki.
Flynny, I do not know the kind wood I use, but I'll try to post a pict of a second log I've got of the same wood

Regarding the stain, here what I did:
1 coat of black ebony stain
1 coat of walnut stain and varnish
1 coat of mahogany "stain and varnish" the gel kind
it was too opaque so I got rid of some of it with a steel wool pad
it was to red so I added
2 coat of walnut stain and varnish
It was too shiny so I tone it done with the steel wool pad again.
It was a long process but I'm happy with how it came out.
