Thanks Jon and hil, I have some forward progress to report.
Cedar floats.

I burned them and then wire brushed the grain Witco style.

Purple highlights to match the rope.

This big boy is nearing the carving portion completion.

The bottom portion.

I made this one totem-style with a stacked story to tell about the importance of fish in the early Polynisian diet.

Will that made me laugh, thanks brother! Burning has been fun and therapeutic, so I did it again on this cedar log. Next I added a very watered down reddish maroon acrylic to highlight sections.




A pretty green nautical rope dictated the colors on this one.

These two look well together, maybe I will just glue and make them free standing.

Always trying to be the teacher's pet, I bored like a deranged termite into this belly button high, six inch wide, two inch thick scrap piece of yellow cedar hoping for extra credit from Will.

The middle portion was inspired by New Caledonia roof carvings.

I used the corners on the bottom section.


Top and lower carvings came from my work with the small cedar floats. Still a lot to do.

All right Cy.
Still love the floats.

Always wanted to see a carver try to use the types of colors the people in the islands or jungles would have used, that is Charcoal for black, I think they used maybe berries for reds and white was some sort of sh$t from the ground.

The brown for Tapa comes from a nut of some sort.
Heck black walnuts would stain the crap out of anything.

Wear gloves or you will be Al Jolson for days.

Cool to see you working with colors on your carves as well.

Thanks a lot for the feed back, and I agree BT, Cyco is very good. Tikiskip I have pondered the use of color in my carvings many times but have come to the conclusion that if the ancients had colors in a tube or can available they would have been foolish not to use it. A grayish green was applied to these floats to match the nautical rope on the bottom.
