Thanks McTiki! I have seen your back yard with the wild Tikis.
Great work and I also realy like the docoration with the coconuts.
Looks pretty cool!
Hey Paipo, sorry for the late response and thanks for your entry.
No, I´m not a monumental mason! But you are right, in the neighborhood is a tombstone factory and they lair their stones in our yard. The guys are very nice and help me always with their forklift.
Befor I try to create Tikis from stone, I exercise me more in carving wood.
It´s not so hard and heavy. So, respect for your beautiful and clean work!
Aloha BK, thank you for the great accolade. I always follow your posts on TC and admire your awesome work. Also, thanks for gives me many inspiration and the incentive to try out more.
So, now I have a few new pictures of the bloom crown Tiki for you.
I created the mouth and back of the figure and finshed the carving.
I try to carve some pattern and frets to give the Tiki some more interesting structures.
Now, I think about the colors. How should I do that? I want to use tree colors. (black, white and red)
I want to squelched some natural materials like ash, chalk and clay and try to mix them with oil.
O.K. befor I color the Tiki I must do some tests. I check it out and than I will post more pictures.
Here are the last pics of the bloom crown god:
