Skip I wanted this one to be priced reasonably so my original idea of carving those sections changed to thieving a pattern from Tiki Magazine and free hand painting with yellow and orange acrylic. Thanks a lot hil and H10!! Will, the stark contrast of the silhouette is what I was shooting for when I added the background but you are right, it almost looks plain without the backlights. (Holy cow conga you are right, something is whacky with the TC posting)

Thanks nicework! I finally finished "Lloyd". The most fun for me is the start of a carving, but completion runs a close second.

He will be lit from the bottom, still figuring that portion out. Thanks again to Tikiskip, his care package from Columbus Ohio provided the ultra cool braided rope highlights.


The head dress of this character reminded me of Punchy, the Hawaiian Punch dude from my youthful daze, so his name is "Punchy's Brother." Wood is noble fir, and he is the evil twin.

Dam Cy I just saw this.
Looks good!

Glad you found a use for that trim.
I knew you could find a use for it.
You can in future burn and shellac that rope/trim too.
Let me know if you want some more to finish that end part on top.

You sly dog skipper, you noticed I did not have enough to finish the last section. I did not want to push my luck by asking for more. Anyhow here is a bit of progress.
I first used string lights in the bottom section of Lloyd but they were not bright enough. I then used amber and red sign bulbs which are much brighter but don't get too hot. To diffuse the light I added a frosted Lucite panel, then covered with matting.

Next time you see this jack- ass he will be mostly green.

You got it Jon, looking forward to it! Thanks nicework, I think I read in your thread that a culinary mentor said never do the same thing twice, words of wisdom that I always go by.

Catching up on stuff I had missed Cy - CRAZY GOOD as usual!
Another way to treat your shiny hardware to to burn the finish off. Zinc melts at 800 degrees so a even a small fire will work. It releases some nasty fumes so be sure to do it in a well ventilated area. It could also affect the temper of your metal so you probably wouldn't want to do it on a hook holding a 300 pound tiki over your head
