Rain is moving his server, so I'm editing this post. He's only got one painting up but promises to have more once the new server is ready.



Seriously -- commission something from him now before his prices go through the roof. Of all the tiki art I have in my office (including Shag and Mark Ryden), Rain's gets the biggest response.

Okay, enough cheerleading from me.

Rain did the portraits of Lono and Kahona over at the Tiki Gardens Memorial, and I've got a few of his other works, black velvet tiki painting, Moai in the sunset on board ( in fact I think its the one under "organinc Maois" the one in the middle), and a couple drawings.

Once he surfaces from his school duties, I hope he'll paint a few more, some for me and some so people can own some of this great tiki artists stuff.

Ill-fated? Failed? Why?

lack of mold-making know-how.
maybe in the future!

I love the lighting & bg in the pictures of the mug prototypes. Have you tried searching http://www.provlib.org for books on slip casting?

... Sorry, I just checked & answered my own question. Try Lindsay Books: http://www.lindsaybks.com , I remember they used to have a book on plaster casting. I can't see any difference in plaster casting versus slip casting, except the fineness & kilning of the slipcast piece when finished.

i understand (in theory, anyway) the slipcasting process - it was making the molds i had trouble with. one sculpt ended up half embedded in a block of plaster, never to emerge, while its other half came clean off. trying a different route, i destroyed the other sculpt removing the latex (which wouldn't have worked for slipcasting anyway, as far as i know now). thanks for the pointers, though, ff - i may check out those leads when i get some free time to try again.
