Are you keeping this guy for yourself?



Woo the Protector will be on display and for sale at the Kustom Kulture gallery.

Ben, I think adding the stain is my favorite part of the process.

how long start to finish did it take?



About 4 weekends. I didn't track the hours, but I never sanded so much in my life.

Thanks MaD-Tiki.

Tammy, It's funny how they develope an attitude dispite what you had in mind for them.

Thanks guys.

I didn't realize you carve, too? These are great. From an artist perspective, your artwork all has a unique style all your own. It carries over to all of your mediums. The curve of a chin, the shape of an arm or the wink on an eye screams Raffertiki. I didn't expect to see it pop out of a piece of wood, but there it was. You have a way of turning art to gold. Wonder what you'll take on next?

I spent some extra time on your website this morning. You had some new stuff up that I hadn't seen, and I'd fallen behind on the Beachcomber saga. The strap-on tease got me to click...nice trick!

Is there anything you don't do?

Raffertiki,


Wow, your last tiki is a beauty. You have come a long way since your first tiki on this post. I love the folded arms and the aggro look of your most current showing. Keep up the killer carvings, they are becoming true works of fine art. If I could afford one and didn't already have 10 vagrant tikis in my backyard, I would be stoked.

Will

I tend to spread myself a little thin, but I can't seem to help myself.

I wouldn't have been able to get where I am without the inspiration, tips, and encouragement from the fine peeps in creating tiki.

Thanks beachin and SCTikiShack!

hey raffer!

I really like this guy. The folded arms and the wooden loin cloth turned out awesome. And that stain! Man, the unstained carving is awesome, but that stain really brings everything to life!

VERY well done, I look forward to the next one!

Thanks polynesiac and Chongolio. The color of the stain is Jacobean. I never heard of it before, but really like it.

I'll be starting the next one just after I cut the lawn.

Mahalo.

Wow, Raff. I guess this carving thing really got ahold of ya. I agree, the stain really came out nice. But they all come to life with the finish, don't they? I also like the pattern on the loincloth.
