I like the Tangaroan couple, especially the style of brushwork - I think you got just the right results. Knock 'em dead with your new one, hewey!

Thanks Robb!

Here's my latest painting, just kinda evolved from a random skull I had no idea what to do with I'll be offering it for sale, no idea how much yet, but the money will go towards the Oz-E-Rodders charity fund (my car club's fund which we'll donate to a charity).

"Welcome to hell. May I take your bags sir?" Acrylic on canvas




I got up to this stage and it sat for a while, while I mulled it over :shock:

*hewey blows cobwebs off this thread* *hewey coughs from the dust*

This was my piece for the PNG tiki art swap. The grass skirt is a genuine PNG grass skirt my nan brought back when she served in the RAAF when she was young. The carving was picked up at a thrift store. Took some photos and got em printed and this is the result



The project I have been working on this weekend is this hot rod decoupage. Sure its not tiki related, but the same process would work just as well for tiki art!

Laid out ready to start. The B&W pics came from an old 90s street rodder mag, the big colour pic is one of mine that I got printed at the local office supplies place.


Acrylic glue from the craft store - dries clear


Started adding pics


Using a foam brush, give the base a coat of glue


Align the picture


Go back over it with more glue


Thats it for the background. The centre image will cover the rest.


After it the glue had dried I 'dry brushed' it with some brown/red acrylic which is a very similar hue to red primer - perfect!


Some detail shots to get an idea of how it looks. Its kinda rough, but it'll help tone back the background, and helps with that vintage kinda vibe.



And then once the paint was dried I added the last picture, and gave the whole shebang another coat of glue.


Now I just gotta bury the whole thing in clear Also today I picked up a canvas so I can start my new art swap piece

Hey Clarita took the best word for your work, COOL! The skirt backdrop and black and white cars are perfect. Looks really terrific. Wendy
