Thanks, Mooney and Surfin! I put the guitar on hold for a while to give the robot side of my brain a break. Lots of calculating and measurements to be done. In the meantime I managed to finish up this guy from way back when:





It's carved from a 24" block of AAC and I finished it off with a coat of Behr Concrete Primer, 2 coats of Behr Semi-transparent Concrete Stain (Terra Cotta), and then put a wash of brown acrylic over that.

Thanks for looking!

Wow Dave! The moai looks fantastic.

I fear that your Hurry Up And Finish It Already Corner is getting smaller than mine.

Are you German by any chance?? That is just too precise!!

Firm, sharp and with a stoic look - just like the real moai. Perfect color too.

Beautiful work, and the stain is a very nice touch too. I've got a big block of limestone (also earmarked for a moai) that looks almost identical to AAC, and had thought of trying some sort of concrete seal/stain process on it.
You may not be prolific but your pieces are well worth the wait!
