Keep up with the awesome work!

Aloha friends,

Im finally back! First I want to say "sorry" for my late response,
like every time, when I post something on TC.

The last weeks were to busy and I found not enough time to write on TC in "english".
But I was not only busy in my regular job, also I go on with the spiky Tiki for the Austrian guy.
It happend very crazy things in my garage, between the last days.
The Tiki has awaken and it was very spooky.
I lost the control about the The Tiki`s will.

But first I want to say thank you to:

benella,
before I start carving I always measure the broadness of the log and so I find out
the middle. From the middle to every side the same measure,
like on the first picture of the spiky Tiki (page 12).

I have done nothing with the Tiki, which I started on the beach of Brigognan
(France, yet. I think Ill finish him next year.

Benzart,
your compliment mkes me lucky! Thanks for your trust in my work.
I hope you will enjoy the finsh of the last Tiki. You are a great teacher!

Tamapoutini,
yes, you are right. We realy deserve that beer and it was realy great.
The breast piece is the bonding between the figure and the wall and makes
the Lono complete.

I like it to carve from the top & work my way down (or contrariwise) ,
because I always can feel free with the following parts of the figure.
So I have enough space on the log and when I finsh the carving I saw the rest off.
Its great, because I often dont know, how the Tiki will be in the end.

Heath,
I will do my best, that always visit me such frindly guys on my thread.
Thats the best honey for me.

Tiki Diablo,
thanks for your entry. I read the interview with you in the Tiki Magazine #3.
It was very great and helpfully. I found out may truths and similarities,
which I had also, when I started to carve.

Tiki Duddy,
whats about your nacklace? Have you just start with it yet?
Im looking forwad to see the first pictures.



So, and now to the new spiky Tiki pictures.
After I finished the carving work of the Tiki,
I started to color him with a dark, walnut wood stain.
The color was dark and brown. All seems normal!



But when I arrived at my garage in the next morning, I was very surprised.
He changed his color from dark brown to aubergine and green.
Either it was too cold, there happened a chemical reaction,
or the Tiki has awaken and gave himself his own shot colored dress.

I suppose the last one. Since that time Im a little bit afraid when Im alone
in the garage. Crazy things going on here!

Here you can see the the Tikis changing.





Than I considered a long time together with the customer, what we should do.
Should we over coating the dangerous fellow, or should we let him his will.
We decided to do the last one and give him only a few highligths on his dress.
For the highlights I used different acrylic colors.
For the grounding I used dark green between the spikes and than I mixed a light green for the highlights.



At last, for his eyes and some chisel textures I used dark brown.
Thats the finish of the spiky Tiki! I hope you will enjoy it.







That picture was shot on last Friday night. I have told you, that the Tiki is awaken.
So, now I must finish and go home very fast, because outside is going dark
and I wont be alone with this crazy creature.

So I hope you are all fine and well see us again,
Haikai

shit!...I must go!

Oh

MY

GOD,

Very great work.



Oh

MY

GOD

You told there will be a surprise but what a surprise !!!!!!!

I just have no words in english, deutsch or french to say how I felt when I discovered your work.



OH

MY

GOD

It is just fabulous, wunderbar usw...
I have an assumption for the color. But firstly 1 question: Was you Tiki nervous before sleeping in your garage ? Because I know that a well-known Bruce Banner change his human skin color to green when he gets nervous...

Veeery Well done Haikai, that is one Freaky Tiki and the Smoking part was the Last straw. I would lock him up in the closet, somewhere where he can't get away and bother you. The carving detail is absolutely terriffic on this guy and the finish is supurb. Are you a professional painter? Your use of colors and highlites are excellent.
Can't wait for the next one, what will he be??

It's Awe Inspiring, and at the same time, whispers..."I needs me a warning label in case I get tipped over!" (lol)


Very very nicely done.

The colors set it on fire.

Mahalo

Got anymore to share?

Too wild! Wonderful stuff. The green highlights worked real well on him. I wouldn't want to be outside in the dark with him either. I hope you get rid of him soon, before he gits you!

Very, very cool. I love how you're thinking on your feet... the stain color changes... no worries... change the gameplan... green highlights!
Genius.

You're full of talent, anyone who can sway with the challenges that the tiki throws at them can do just about anything with the log.
Just watch your back in the dark... he looks hungry... feed him well before he goes to his new home... then let the new owner deal with him!

Again, top-notch work!

Interesting that you carve from one end to another & then cut the rest off.

Love the nostrils!!

Smokin'!
