Mike, try one of those branchy-looking starfish! Or how about those fan-like corals? I bet you're making a way-cool aquarium!

I love seahorses, would be nice to make a big one with vibrant colors with a hole on top for a string so It can be hung from the branch of a tree?

Jason, you may have to wait a while It will be a few months before I'm done with this project.

LLT - I have a secret 'pus planned

Beadtiki - starfish are defininately in, I'll have to check out the "branchy" ones. The sea fans are too thin to be made from ceramic but you can buy real dried sea fans instead. I will be using some real stuff in this mixed media project like shells, etc.

Hiltiki, gotta have seahorses. Here's one but he's not very vibrant, more camouflaged



The seahorse is mounted on a metal sculpture sea grass. There is also a nudibranch or sea slug on the rock base. Some of this stuff is just "sketches" or experiments. I can see now that the slug needs to be crawling over the corner of something so he exists in 2 or 3 planes.

Next, I need to start working on the "Tiki" aspect of this project.

Tikis too, wow this keeps calling for serious viewing. I am very fond of seahorses. This is my bathroom! Mike there can never be too many seahorses in a project. Wendy

Wendy - are all your seahorses made of that molded pasticy stuff from the 60's? Like those awesome toilet seats/lids? I LOVE your WC - needs some more seahorses though - I can still see wall!

Mike - I love the nudibrank - you could do a LOT of them as they seem to vary widely. Besides, the name is the clincher for me!

Nice work as usual Mike! If you open a seahorse business Wendy would definitely keep it in the black!

Hey Mike, sorry for the high-jack. I collected the seahorses from antique stores while searching for tikis. Then went crazy on eBay. It took a couple of years to get exactly the right number. I have stopped now so the white walls will always show. If I had it to do again I would have painted the bathroom blue before hanging them. Hugs, Wendy

Thanks Robert.
ZeroTiki - those Sea Dragons are just plain FREAKY!
BeadTiki - lots of way cool colors on those nudibranches (:giggle:) They are toxic so they don't have to hide, neon colors to advertise "HERE I AM, WANNA MATE?"
Wendy - no hijack here - "any publicity is good publicity"
