You guys just floor me with your kind words. Thank you very, very much.
Here is a quick/lame pic of recent progress on the Hawaii Map behind the corner booth. The 'water' is painted with blue and sea green Home Depot 'Granite' textured paint to which I added a bunch of metal flakes to give it that glittery glint. The islands only have a base coat of earth tone and I'm proceeding to build up and paint the topography. I may add some glittery white-caps in the shallows and at the shore's edge as well.

There will also be a directional compass at the lower center of the map as well as route lines and island names. More soon.

XOXO,
John

WOW! That's looking REALLY nice! I can't wait to see those islands all painted up! Are you gonna put a red dot where the active volcano (Kilawaha?) is?! Fun, fun, fun!

I guess I'm the lucky one of the group. I get to stop by and see the progress. Can't wait for the grand opening.

I had to chime in and give credit where it's due.

Thanks to this thread, the lure of the islands has me firmly in its grasp. I was once bitten hard by the Tiki bug but abandoned it because I couldn't share the feelings it gave me with anyone in my circle of friends and family; they just didn't understand. Now, however, I feel compelled to reacquaint myself with the sights and sounds of Tiki culture. I only wish I had a space as deliciously over-the-top as yours in which to indulge my rapidly rising Tiki fever. And what a wonderful fever it is!

Thanks for sharing your process with all of us. You are an inspiration, indeed!
