Just the perfect advice I wanted, thanks Ben.
well here's the latest on my sad tiki. I know, I know, I always rag on my own art. But this one is a definite step backward for me. I'll do better next time!


I just stained it...still didn't help much. I'll post more pics later...or not.

He sits fine with me. I like his slightly twisted demeanor.
Again i like the skull, mouth and the white touch you
have going on.

That is great work,If you are completly happy with your work than it would never excel.And every piece would look the same(How boring is that).Enjoy that piece and the next one and so on..... Good job!
Tiki Stan,

Don't be too tough on yourself, nice carve and he looks cool. He's
also a big bigger than I thought he was based on earlier pics.

Looks great surfin'! I like what you did with the nose and the nostrils design, it looks like you stained over the white paint job to give it a lighter tan color (is that right?)

Nice finish, the stain really brought all the lines out big time
and the skull contrast looks great.

Surfin', he looks great all colored and finished up, Excellent job. I Love the fact that you didn't think this guy was one of your best and yet you didn't slack in the final finishing of him and nreally turned out a great piece. Thats a great lesson for All of us. 4 stars today grasshopper! and go to the head of the class for today!!

I really like it

I reckon its good to do some fun quickey tikis - keeps you fresh and inspired, because you're not getting bogged down in hours of sanding.

Thanks all!!
Conga-Thanks, He's actually 50' high! Really! Harrr-har
TF- You are correct sir! I kinda like doing that, kinda makes it look a little weathered.
seekn-I think the dam skull is the only thing I like!
Benzy-WOOO, head of class! Wooo! I got some of the rub-on minwax poly you suggested, and started applying tonight. 'Bout time to go down and sand n' coat again!
Hewey-you're sooooo right. I kinda learned, if ya want a grainy, old-lookin', outdoor variety tiki...DONT WASTE TIME SANDING!!!!
Benella-thanx! Really!
Texas T- He's not lookin so sad anymore!!!
Harro- Exactly! THATS whats been buggin me about this tiki, the wood is funky! It took the stain really weird, I didn't do that on purpose. But I remedied it (darkened it with black oil paint). You'll see when I post my final photos.
Aloha mates!
