Silverline, this last one is really Nice, except for the mold. You need to dry it out before you put any finish on it. You can leave it out in the baking sun a few days. You can carefully heat it with a torch and after it is dry, sand the mold off. once you have it clean you can spray it down with a light mixture of bleach and water, say i part bleach and6 parts water. thoroughly soak it and then let it dry again and then you Should be able to stain and varnish him.Looks nice.

Hey buddy, lookin' good. I say lose the mold before doing anything else. Ben has it right. You gotta get it dry first and if that means bringin' it inside for a few days when it's raining, do it. Is it molding because it is green wood or is it all due to the wet weather? If you just have to leave a carving outside during the rainy times, get a good platic tarp and wrap it up good then secure with bungee cords. I have found this to work perfectly. He will be mighty nice at your cabin when completed.

Hey man! Great stuff! You've been very busy haven't you! I really like the moldy one. Also especially newtinytiki04.jpg - very nice! What kind of wood is that?

Watch out for those Foredom Burrs (The "Red Typhoon" is nasty if/when it gets out of control).



It's better now but it sure bled a lot with stringy skin hangin off it.

YIPES! Tikigap, those burs are for WOOD! I'm sure they make a similar tool for surgeons if that's what you're needing! Newtinytiki was done in (everybody's favorite) walnut.

OK Ben/8ft, a-sandin' I will go. And it's indoors for him for the rest of the rainy week.

Finally! That mold was a B!TCH! Don't let mold happen to you! One side effect was, it weakened the outer layers of the Maple making fine detail a job for the glue. No fun. But it's about 95% sanded off, stained and spar-urethaned, and now taking up residence on the porch of our lake house. Hopefully now I'll catch more fish!

Silverline,

Mold or no mold, this guy looks great! Good job finishing him up. Too bad about the mold. I have to really watch it with the humidity here. Mold grows on everything and I am very allergic to it. I hope he holds together for you and doesn't continue to deteriorate. Now go catch some fish!

Nice job Silverliner. Looks like you got rid of the mold pretty well. Now you have to do another one.

You dealt with the mold well, you can't even tell. Don't fish too much, you need to carve more.
