Yes, right. I forgot that it's already been soaked in combustible fluid (minor detail!). That would be bad. So a little spot staining it is, then wrap this one up & move on to the next.

Mahalo all

Raku it!

Get a metal trash can put a bunch of newspaper in it, light it on fire, stick the tiki in it and cover it. Let it smolder, smoke, etc. Experiment and remember that Tiki is not perfect. Have fun and freak out the neighbors!!

( and get a little agro out of your system on that damn soft wood spot)

I worked on somethings but didn't post it.

Then I forgot all about it until surfintiki posted a link.

This one is 1" long. It didn't look right and I thought I would like it better if I stained it but no, it still looks wierd. The eyes and nose didn't come out quite right so I tried another one.



This one is 1.5". I didn't like the looks of this one either so I just didn't finish it and it's been sitting in my tackle box.

If you really don't like them, I could give one a very loving home!
A tackle box is no place for such cute little tikis. I think they're great!

TikiWahine -
One of my friends is going to take the smaller one but if you want, I can finish up the other one, stain it, and have you find it a home. If you're still up to it, send me a pm and we'll talk logistics.

Manokoa, those are very cool! You should add some leather strings to make them into pendants. I'm sure they will find good homes. It's great to see more Leroy inspired art posted here.

^ pendants is what they're for. I'm beginning to appreciate them but I'm still gonna try to do a few more.

Thanks for the inspiration. You have some cool stuff as well.

Here's a quick recap of all the great "Reloys", then we'll let it sink again till someone feels inclined to recreate another one. Days, weeks, months or years from now....

Always room for one more. I had intended to have quite a bit more detail, but when it comes down to Noon on Halloween, I couldn't be too picky.
