I had a split-bamboo mat that I thought would be a great place to start for this project...

Ray & Jason, so glad to see both of you involved in this Swap. Both works are looking great, hope to see more of those real soon.

Anyone else out there on the fence? I count about 31 days left

MDM, since you're leading the swap, I'll direct this question to you, but anyone can feel free to chime in.

I've started my swap project, and along the way discovered something wonderful. It's a 19th century etching, and is fantastic. I have original art to use for the piece, but the etching is more better than I could ever hope to emulate on my own.

Would it be preferable to use my original art, or re-purpose a century old etching? I'm fine with either, and will be making copies for myself either way I go.

I guess I could post the two graphics and let people choose if you think that would be a good way to go.

Thoughts?

Zero Tiki its fun to watch you think it through. A lot of master works of art have another painting underneath. Now we've seen it happen.

DaveTiki that' gonna be a whale of a painting. Oh No did I say that? Wendy

Alrighty, back to the depths we go....

I'm working on a humpback painting, however this is a Tiki swap and it needs some 'tiki' culture. I've always admired the Maori culture, so I did a little research. The humpback is PAIKEA in the Maori language and quite a revered creature.

So I begin taking my humpback in a Maori-inspired direction. After viewing a variety of Maori representations of different animals, I begin painting and blocking out a Maori-inspired pattern.



After a much longer-than-anticipated session, I complete the Maori blocking technique. I must say, painting on split bamboo was more challenging than I imagined. It might be easier with a more free flowing subject, but Maori tribal blocking required a steady approach.



I did want the final piece to have a bit of a vintage feel. I hit the painting in a variety of places with some sandpaper before applying a varnish to seal the paint. Then I signed the reverse...



Final photos to come soon....

Peace,
Jason <><

Zero - proof that Tiki Hoarders exist even at 20,000 leagues under the sea! Lookin' good
Jason - Looks like a cross between Moby Dick and Shamu on LSD Just kidding, looks great. I like the "antiqueing" idea.

Digging the variety of all the new additions to the swap. I'm waiting on some test tiles to fire to see how to approach the N.O.T.N.S.P. Mug, and for the Sharkbait Moai Tile to bisque fire. Who else is jumping in next? Wendy, glad I wasn't the only one thinking whale one liners.
