Geez Mike - you should have gloated a LITTLE! And if it hadn't been for you informing me of all the neat-o stuff in the bar - I never would have seen the freakin' mural Kinny painted! LOL I'm not the most observant! It looks and sounds like a good time was had by all - maybe next time for me!

Wendy - that bar is a permanent fixture. The back of my panels are boxed in with plywood (courtesy of Bamboo Ben) for some protection from the elements, I made a big fleece cover to protect the front. Maybe when we have "The Big One" Sacramento will get closer to SoCal and you can make it to Mojave Oasis!
Dusty - good to meet you, thanks to the shirt
John-O - you didn't ask!
Kinny & Dawn - When I do a project, I like to add detail in proportion to the audience viewing distance; there's no need to add a bunch of detail to something that will be viewed from 50 feet away. But I knew on this one SOMEBODY would cross the velvet ropes and check for detail Thanks for noticing
Amy - thank you again for the opportunity to be a part of this.
Bead & Robert - thanks. Bead, I do most of my gloating right here, safe behind my keyboard on my platterful of pupu thread.

It is time for my annual self-imposed hiatus from tiki art from now 'til middle of June - I'll be doing a "Panda-Monium" themed stage set for church. I'm in the process of collecting 300 identical cardboard boxes to make into the Great Wall of China along with some styrofoam art and hopefully a giant steel gong

Even though this is Tiki Central I for one would love to see your church work here. I'm sure that I would learn from whatever project you are working on. Photos please.

I would like to get to Mohave without the "big one" please, my prayer, Wendy

Every time I look at your thread, I feel like it is a kind of "Other Crafts" microverse where you and a team see how many different kinds of artifacts you can produce. I'm glad Mojave was fun for you.

Zero, I think a box fort is definately in order. Bead, no soapbox derby for me. I've taken over my son-in-law's garage - that's his Karmann Ghia that he doesn't have room to work on

BBear, that was great fun, a Mayan themed Chili Cook-Off booth complete with costumes. Did you see the llama poking his head up on the right? That was before I learned that you can carve foam with a SurForm rasp.




In between glueing boxes, I'm learnig how to do mosaic. Workin' on a plan for the "Ladies of Tiki" Swap

That's not tiki! Back in February, I started attending a loosely structured workshop where people make mosaics for public art. I started a Quetzal bird mosaic and have finally got all the tiles made and cut.



They didn't have any blue tiles in the colors I wanted so I made and glazed my own, I wish I had made them lighter in color so the bird would have more contrast. Next I'll learn how to mount and grout it. This will end on on the side of a concrete trashcan on Main street in my town. I do have a few tiki themed mosaics planned and I'm working on a commissioned tiki bowl but can't show that until I surprise the "commissionee"
