Thanks for the cool comments H10 and swizz, skip that portion of the clip about can't get a hangover, non addictive, cheap and makes sex better is cinema gold. I have not seen that movie but will check it out. Big T here is the shade finished. I folded and cut watercolor paper, then thinned some Elmers glue and brushed it over the entire thing, adding a textured paper over the top. Next I varnished a red on to the whole thing and smashed flat, bent and soldered some 6 gauge copper wire for the frame. I use Trans Tint dyes for the coloring on all my tikis as it mixes with oil or water based paints and it is transparent so you see the wood grain. The blue on "Dewey" was added to Minwax spar urethane and took four coats to get it to pop. Another three coats of clear sealed the deal.

I do not know where I am going but as Laz sez "Practice makes Progress"
This is a couple of bass wood carvings that I am combining and calling it "Captain Fritz" after that German mummy looking dude they found adrift near the Philippines. He will be painted grey.

"Gretsch" will have tikis on the neck and body.

Willcarve hipped me to adding darker paints to the deeper sections, so a lot of my time this week was spent doing just that.

I also like those sticks to the right, any chance at some point you can put some close ups of those, thanks.

"Willcarve hipped me to adding darker paints to the deeper sections"

We have drained many beers contemplating this very subject. Does adding a "patina" add to a carving? or does it just make it looked all crapped up? Most carvers believe that burning is a traditional way of adding depth to a carving. I feel that painting a patina adds more than just burning - a patina adds depth to places that you would not expect and gives you a better way to control the look you want. Burning is nice but you often have to include paint to cover up areas that the flame can not reach.

Much about cool work going on the Frog Island Cy! I agree with the Aloha Station-master painting in deeper sections plus with the paint you can control feathering the effect much easier.....at least thats been my experience.

Muchas Gracias MDM, and thanks for the interest in the sticks Hiltiki. They are commissioned pieces brought back from Kauai of unknown species. I just tried to follow the way they bent and will be doing more in the future as they are fun and relatively quick for a carving.



I would like to hang out with you Aloha, Will and Keylo, too bad we are on different coasts. I have never had a hankering to burn one of my tikis as I would be sure to level my garage so I stick with the painting. After the piece is completely painted I go back in and brush a darker color into the crevices, then wipe the excess almost immediately, brush in right hand, rag in left and get the feathered look that blends everything. I use dark browns, blues, greens, grays... you only get black when you torch it. This pic shows you the difference between painted and unpainted.

That magic blackining treatment as I call it
makes em pop.
I mix black latex with the faux finish stuff
& that holds the length of time you have to wipe it off open longer.
First I seal the wood with poly or lacquer.
Then I brush it on thick & wipe it off of where I
don't want it.
I find the more pristine the finish,
like natural hard wood shiny with poly
the more it makes it just look dirty.
Palm or pine or palm fronds work better for me.
It works real good on the cement guys
I'm doing.
