I like him....very folk artsy. I still say he looks like the kind of guy that might carry a knife
Ok, let's continue the discussion on paint from another thread. What do you use? it looks great!

Thanks Will and Amate, appreciate your remarks, especially since this is only marginally 'tiki.'

I am going back to a more tribal and 50s modern look on my next piece, but I have also been drawn to other
styles, flat plane carving, folk art. This was originally going to be a simple moai in tropical touristy
garb, and the 8 ball just came out of nowhere. I have improved the "8" by the way.

I used a dark walnut stain and then finished him off with acrylic paint. I didn't want the paint to look
perfect, I wanted the dark finish to show through the paint. I used a brush that had been used...and not
cleaned...still a little stiff, if you know what I mean. The paint was then sort of "scraped" onto the stain.
That's the best way to describe it.

The all-knowing moai!

Going tribal-tiki with the next one....promise.

Hello friends....thought I better do a little bump after dropping to page 2...Conga is back.
As you can see spring is just around the corner up here, but I have been working on a tiki project


And I have also been chizzlin' and paintin' on a tribute to one of my favorite Wisconsin traditions,
the friday night fish fry


So that is it for now, other than a nice icicle to convince all of you that you should move to a
more northern location

Lots of nice work being shown on TC, keep it up. Peace out!

I'm gonna say it before Will does - carve deeper! Punch a few holes under the arms and spread those legs till you can see some light between them!

Nice try on the "double dare" Hang10, but I'm not gonna fall for it.
I learned my lesson on the school merry-go-round 55 years ago. I think a
piece of my tongue is still there.

Deeper cuts are coming AlohaStation, but this is a pretty strange piece of
basswood. Very chippy and I had to pull out the grinder to do some
prelimary smoothing...just to see if it would warrant any further effort.
My real reason for posting it at this point was to give me an excuse
to post a non-tiki item. I will hear your voice in my dreams until I
finish this one..."deeper....deeper...deeper....."

Deeper....deeper....

Having fun with this one, the face is evolving, and I have partially repaired a
large crack running down the right side of the face. I glue wood wedges into the
crack and then carve it back down to the surface, as you can see, still one small
part of the crack that needs attention. Cracks don't usually bother me, but this one
was in a bad place. A wise carve named Ben once told me "don't use filler, use wood."

I plan on this carving taking a long time, I'm being very patient.

Nice to have Basswood as a local species.
I have been experimenting on the small cracks using wood glue mixed with sawdust. Holding up alright so far.
Stay on that log man!

Happy Easter to all and thanks to Heath, Amate and Benz for your kind remarks. Still digging
deeper and working on the "little lumps" hiding out in the corners. I like him to this point and
feel that he has a lot of potential. Just starting to have fun...

I had to look that one up Hang10, it's the one ailment that I DO NOT get from
carving. I'm not sure where Bursitis fits in with Tiki...but I like the look.

Yea...still pretty cold up here Will so he IS chilly. We are expecting real spring
weather around the 4th of July. Then it turns cold.
