I agree, your chisel texture is beautiful - so uniform. I could see myself trying to replicate that on a piece of stone after I'd sanded it back. I seem to remember some of the old Hawaiian pieces having that type of surface.
This one is looking superb Marcus.

That eye is coming out freaking awesome! I love how the tiki is supporting the eye as if giving up an offering...

My brother will freak out when I show him this one, with the hot rod connection. He wants to know if you want a bridge built anywhere, so he can trade some of his work for some of yours (hes an engineer, which is why he is handy at putting up tents in the rain)

Very cool work, I agree with Benz for chisel texture.
And very good inspiration for the flying eye, it is incredible.

Ben.

OK before I move onto my next project here are the last photos of the "flying eye"











This carving was done for a Robot Tiki Art Exhibit - if you look closely you can see the "sheets of metal and rivets" on the flying eye.

Wow, I can't believe how cool that is! I love the chisel marks left on the tiki.

Superb!!! Youve captured a cool contrast between the tiki & the eye. Almost like slipping a space-age toy into the hands of a genuine old figure. The chiseled finish looks great darkened up.

Id love to see it in real life, I bet it has a real 'presence' to it!

Can I ask what price you have on it, if for sale?

Well done! Tama

Hey Marcus, that really is incredible. I'm seeing a 4-part process (at least) to your staining/finishing technique. So, how 'bout it?

Yeah, and how much to ship to New Zealand?
Seriously, that is one very cool piece, I love the crossover stuff when it's done right. Did you sell him?

Very sweet my man What did ya paint the eye with? Im guessing spraycan silver, but the details? Did ya clearcoat over the painted eyeball? Im just wondering how a tiki with some pinstriping in one shot would go with some marine grade varnish over the top...
