hey capo..the pix are small.. but from what i can tell, :squinting: awesome.. follow the instructions in Posting Pix. make sure you click on your own picture in shutterfly to make it big!

so, those are carved from stone? how big? how long does that process take?

I create tiki with mortar over a wire frame.I do most of the detail when the mortar is wet,some sanding and then texture and paint with enamel.they are hollow so they are no too heavy,the wire frame make them strong like the ox.

Welcome aboard Capo. That gang of Tiki's that you created look really cool. Were you at the Tiki Beach Festival this year? I think I saw you there. Keep up the great work and keep on posting pics.
Later,
Spermy

Very very nice Capo!!! Welcome to TC.

Does the wire framing have paper behind it to capture the mud? I have been getting experienced with vertical application of Portland cement lately and have a new found respect for anyone that has mastered it.

Those are awesome Tiki my friend.

Can't wait to see the new ones
