Thanks Amy! I'm very happy you love them (you are one of the girls on TC that make me really proud, i love your work and style as person)

Thanks Bowana, specially for the wild style thing, it's what i'm sort of going for, that's why i always do symmetric stuff uneven, to me it's what make the carving alive, it's one of the things that are amazing about as too, that we are supposed to be symmetric but we aren't, the sides are always different or at list one it's bigger than the other. so to me that's a very interesting thing about the way things are...
this pic it's just a preview to show what it's going on around here, i didn't wanted to post those two pics together because of the light and that you can't see very well the details anyway. I'll post better pics later, be patient! but thanks for caring.

Thanks LLT
picnic?
sure, you know I'm waiting for you guys to come learn the tango here, but you where the ones that change here for the cartel
btw how much money do you own them?

Thanks very much TheBigT, i'll post pics later to see the differences in the design better, stay tuned

Thanks conga I like your work a lot!

What i really wanted to show you here, it's that i managed to imitate the color of the very old drums, by burning and working the green bamboo, until it ended up looking like that.
the reason why i did the same guys again but different it's because Squid liked the first set, just the way it was, but I wanted to keep it because these drums were around my house for 30 years now, so they have a special meaning to me. But i wanted to be able to make a set for Squid also, that would look as old, or at list with very interesting colors, not flat flashy green, that in time would have turned into the flat caramel yellow we all know bamboo has.
I'm waiting for some sun for the pics
thanks for looking!

This is the first set of drums I've carved, they are 30 years old, my mother bought them in '81 at the north of Brazil.
What is really cool about them is the colors the bamboo has. after I finish carving them Squid wanted to buy them, but I wanted to keep them because they have a special meaning to me.
I wanted to be able to make a new set for him. So I've bought green bamboo of all the sizes I needed, and thin leather for the patches. But as you know green bamboo it's very flashy green and it turn into yellow in time but the color it's flat.
So i've worked the green bamboo, burning, carving and pealing it until it looked like the old set. It wasn't easy, i've burned, cracked and broken stuff on the way, I had to start over one of them twice! My fingers really hurt... but I didn't give up and i'm proud


this is the second set made entirely by me from scratch, that imitates the colors of the old ones

and here are some pics to see the differences between sets





There you go surfin


still no sun here, this are with electric light, i didn't wanted to upload to many heavy pics, so i tought this photoshop pics were good enough to see the differences. i didn't have the patience to make them better
Aloha! hope you like

Thanks laojia! you are one of the though audience to convince around here too, it's an honor that you think I should be proud.
Thanks very much Howland your opinion is very important to me, thanks so much for posting and for the particular comment.
