Here's my last carving at the instructor's show...pic is a bit blurry. I did the ol' calcium treatment to give him a false, aged patina.

Love the aged look! I'll have to have you give me the skinny on how you did it once I get a few more cranked out. Awsome work!

Just to show you how bad this tiki obsession of mine is...I'm posting pics of my last yard project.




It's pretty much impossible to grow palms here in Calgary, but I really wanted one to help give the backyard a tropical feel, and I didn't want it to seem fake..so I made this one.

How did you make that palm? That is too cool. Also any advice on the "calcium treatment" you mentioned?

Hey thanks for the nice words Frostiki. The palm tree is (essentially) a carved log with a real fern sitting on it. Then I wrapped the pot that the fern sits in with burlap. It's been up over a month and still looks great in the backyard. Everyone who comes over comments on it. It's pretty cool to hear their postive comments. As for the "calcium treatment"...well that's basically rubbing calcium dust (aka chalk dust) over the carving. Olds it up real nice.

Here is a picture of my most recent creation: "The Birth of Pele". This work, of course, is based on Sandro Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus" but I've switched out the figures to make it more tikiriffic. Sorry for the crappy pic:



Thanks

Very Cool Slacks!
Great approach to an Old Classic!
Seeing as you're sort of a Renaissance Man,Botticelli was a perfect choice!
Any plans in the future for a Tikified "Garden of Earthly Delights" by Bosch?
That would be CRAAAAZAAAAAY!

Thanks guys. It's always nice to hear positive comments from talented artists that I respect and admire.

Sam, the painting is only 2 feet x 3 feet. I'm starting to realize that I need to work smallish to medium. I've got limited studio space and it's gonna get much smaller once I frame-in the tiki room for my basement. So... gone are the days of the 4 foot x 8 foot canvases of art school. Gone, for now, anyway.

LLT: I love the idea of a tiki-fied "Garden of Earthly Delights" Bosch painting. Especially if it were done as a folding alterpiece. That would rock.
