Yes! That's a fantastic design Clarita! I love the deep carved look of the face. It almost looks like a hybrid of PNG and Marquesan design.

Thanks Ray! this is going to be a candle holder like the Fuego, it will not melt it will glow, with a little tea candle inside
And the holes at the back my idea is that the light will scape thru them...

Hotdaaayum! That looks awesome Clarita! I really like the lines and the depth--a very creative design indeed. You think you could carve me one just like it but out of wood and about 6 or 8 feet tall?

Aloha Howland, thanks! I've never try carving wood... I would like to try some time...But enough battle is my own for now...But I listen, and I put all the ideas and encouragements in queue...
...for example Bowana thought I should make pendants...so I made the Tormento pendant to try modeling very little...and see how it goes...here is a plaster copy,I've couldn't find yet the right resin,to make them...

...but you could not say I don't listen to my fellow TCers

Good luck with the Hoko Ili mold, amiga. You are going to make a slip-cast mold for ceramic, right?

Yay! El Tormento pendant! (quien no fume) Quieres cambiar uno de tuyos por uno de mios?
