Amy, in the past Hewey has waited until about the day after the deadline before making the match-ups. If you don't have a finished piece (or very close to finished) piece posted, you don't get included. Brillant planning on Hewey's (or someone's) part: my wife has been involved in a few scrapbooking swaps where people have gotten burned because the partner never gets around to making their product.

Mike - unbelievable work, my friend! With mad skills like that I wouldn't be surprised if Tiki Farm came calling...! Can't wait to see it fired and finished!

So far, this has been a great experience... I hope there is another swap in the works! Fun stuff!

Peace,
Jason <><

WOW! MadDogMike, that is freakin' sweet!

TikiDaye, it may feel like the hardest first step you'll ever take, but posting your first piece of art is the easy part. The hard part comes when you continue to post better, faster, stronger works of art, and after some time you'll look back at that first one and think, "Cripes, I did that!?" Welcome to TC!



I decided to get away from my usual mediums of bone and acrylic paintings, and decided to give the Sculpey clay a little try. I got this done in the past few days, but am currently at a loss on what to do about hair... so I'm open to suggestions about how to attach the hair. And no, I will not cut my own to use.


Them's real leather cords keeping the peepers closed and the trap shut.


Cow bone-bone through the nose. Ok, so I didn't totally leave the bone behind for this Swap, but I tried.


Not as giant as you thought huh? I gotta ship this if I finish it in time, had to consider that. So this is Sculpey over a ping pong ball armature. Trying to save a little weight and ensure the clay would harden.

Mango...
not sure if it is going to work or just look like a shrunken head from the hair club for men ....but this is how I was going to make this one, just as soon as my hair is long enough.

I was planning on attaching the hair by filling the holes with some glue.

Mad dog- if thats what you do to people that steal your drink ...I'd definately think twice before taking a sip.

Mango, great lookin' little head! I did a ceramic "bone dagger" awhile back and did just like the good Cap'n did - poked holes in the top before I baked it then filled the holes with jute. Could do the same with black yarn and unravel it when the glue is dry. You can still drill holes in the baked Sculpty.



Thanks for the kind words guys. I decided shrunken heads aren't creepy enough alone, I added a big blue/green beetle on the back

Hewey, I'm guessing you won't figure out the actual swap part until the end in case
more people jump in during the last week...



Yup. Once the draw list is posted just get your swap partner to hold onto their piece for a week or two before shipping it.

What Mike said! I cant take any credit for how its set up, I stole the whole idea and organisation from another forum and tikified it

I've done some more work on my piece. More paint


And some staples


Started on the frame set up too, not quite sure where I'm going with it yet

Looks great Hewey!!! I knew Elvis had a much more interesting demise than a heart attack on the crapper! Looks like he died with his boots on in the jungles of PNG.

*bump*

I've had a late breaking idea. Been working on some vinyl customs this week for the fun of it.
Picked up a 4" glow in the dark Munny at Neon Monster in SF.

Anyone off to Wondercon this weekend?

From the far reaches of the South Pacific, deep within uncharted jungles, gaze upon this macabre spectacle! Personally acquired at great expense of life and limb, taken directly from under the nose of the village Chieftain himself! I present to you the Musical Head-in-the-Box. Crank the mystical handle, and out issues a hauntingly primitive tune that some say is akin to Pop Goes the Weasel, then feel the raw, spiritual energy of this great fallen warrior as his head amazingly levitates from the confines of it's enclosure!

Ok, enough of that. I had a blast working on this, and it was such a great theme. There's plenty of crazy, kooky, and awesome art in this thread, and there's still 2 weeks to go! If you're on the fence, then jump on down and make with the loppin' & shrinkin' already.


The mystical box...


The head actually does "pop" out, but it's a bear trying to stuff all the hair back in there. A little PNG shield on the front.


An alligator on this side.




I had to modify the bone in his nose, it was just a tad too big to fit into the opening, especially with all the darn hair. I managed to scalp a fashion doll for the hair, so you might notice the slight purple tint it has, and I had to sacrifice a shirt (but all worth it). I wanted to do some raffia, but it was just too difficult for me as I am by no means "crafty".

I apologize to all the tapa experts out there for my tapa printings, as I'm no student of that art.

Mango, you are full-tilt BOZO!!!!! Very cool and extremely unique.

Amy, I like the Munny concept (what's for dinner?)
