Eric,
awesome and inspiring as always!

quick question: when sculpting for the resin biz card holder and your pendants, what are you using as a medium for the sculpt? wax? if so, what kind?

I do some sculpting myself and would love any insight you might offer...

peace,
Jason <><

Thanks Jason!

Not sure that I can offer anything that could be considered insight, but I can tell you I use Sculpey!

It's a polymer clay that you can bake in your oven. You can pick it up at any art supply store!

The paper model of the Islander is amazing! That'll show them, WE can resurrect the Tiki temples "they" tear down!

And I love the I-phone painting: Ideal to play "What Tiki lounge did that come from?" You picked some real special ones:
The Steve Crane bowl, the napkin from the Kapu Kai, the swizzle from Harvey's, the candle holder from Aloha Jhoe's...

So did you notice the "Tiki Baby" in the Lattitude 20 sign/matchbook in that other thread? Ideal for a plush Tiki, I'd say!

Mahalo Kelly! I'm blushing! Just trying to do my part to keep tiki culture alive!

Sven, glad you like the Paper cutout Islander! I'm working on the full color version of it now.

I did see your comment in the Hop Louie/Islander thread, and a plush version of that tiki is a great idea!

I was considering doing a pendant of the little tiki, and probably will if I ever get around to it!

I already depicted it in a painting that I did for abstractiki that I included when I drew his name in the mug swap from earlier this year. I used the matchbook cover from the other post as a guide for the painting, and images from his urban archaeology for some of the other logos.

Eric,

Sculpey... right on. I use sculpey as well, still getting used to it though. Do you sculpt everything pre-bake or do you do some carving/sculpting after it is baked? Sorry to bug you but I love all the crazy stuff you create...

Peace,
Jason <><
