BigT - the trick is to seal the wood before doing the petina. If it is not sealed the paint/stain/crap that you paint it with will soak in. Once sealed the petina is brushed on all over (very messy) then the high areas are wiped off. Continue till the desired effect is reached (touch up any missed areas).



Thanks Tom, I'll try sealing first. I think I've been doing it the other way around. One thing I found with glaze first was the glaze making the overall tone darker than I wanted.

I am heading to Tiki Oasis this year (for the first time in 10 years) and have been very busy carving new stuff. Out of shear luck, I have secured vending space in the indoor market. This is tough because the Hukilau pretty much wiped out my inventory of stuff. I'm carving a bunch of palm fronds to have for sale and the following is just one. I have to limit all my pieces to 24", so they will fit in my suitcase. This actually helps me out because I can not over extend myself by carving something 4-5' (I don't have time for those). I will have lots to post in the near future - for now here is Moai #1.

Hang10 - be sure to come by and introduce yourself. I get in Thursday night.

Here's a sneak peek at my latest. I've been busy trying to restock my inventory and finished carving another larger frond. This one was blood-thirsty and got me right on the end of my finger. I have to admit, it bled a lot, but it doesn't hurt as bad as others! The tiki will get a sandpaper bath and "the treatment" this week.

Great work Tom, looking forward to meeting again at Oasis! (Steer clear of H10 though, he's Trouble.)

I've been whittling away getting ready. I may do one more big(ger) frond before the show. Last night I spent the evening finishing 2 that were done last wee/end. First up is another Moai. Then a more Hawaiian figure. While I was spraying and staining, I was joined by an interesting little buddy. The tiki wanted a selfie with the bug!
