Hey Chikitiki, this job is bringing something out from Deep in your halls of Easter Island design... Maybe your great, great, ggreat, great,great grandpappy was a moai and he was prolly so good they turned him to stone and made him a Moai god. You never know when these things are just gonna show up and effect the rest of your life from No until forever! So There. Awesome Job, Maing. Only ting I can say is youse might be slackin off a bit hoping noone would notice- - - I Seee. Pick it up a beat and get it done already,Inquiring minds wanna know how it comes together.

You know, if you want to be authentically Rapa-Nui, you really need headstones and eye coverings for those Moai.

Nice finish on the Moai, TD.
An alternative to Foamtek is Dryvit. They use this on all the the mall facades across the country and on some theming and movie prop fabrication as well.. This might be something a little more readily available for others to locate if they wish to give foam a try. Warning! Foam is fun, but it is static charged and sticks to everything when you sculpt with it eh, Diablo? Just curious about the density of the foam you were using 1.5lb or 2lb?
Keep up the good work.

Hey Ben, Yeah I have always been drawn to these moai types, I seem to have a Moai-ish nose on me as well. I am going all out now with the theatre so it looks a lil mo tiki for the event, but don't want to rush and lose quality. The inside of the snack bar decor was done in a three day thrash, but is not the final product. It still is going to bug me until I re-do it in a proper fashion.

The foam is messy stuff as Bosko warned me about. I used 1.5lb foam on these moai .

Doug, finally got some tikis in there for ya.

Now off to the theatre!

Light post signs before final manilla rope detail added.





Added some shields and fabbed up two orange and white illuminated signs ("refreshments") for the snack bar.
The planters were added as well as some additional support columns and faux metal bamboo railings.

I will carve up some masks and hang them on the bamboo panels above the planters. Also designing the lighting for the focal points and elsewhere. Yes, it is all in the lighting!

Post more updates later.

Looking great Danny!

Nice work! Love the shields and the signs. Takes the place back to the original days of the drive-ins.

See you in a couple weeks on the sands of Fort Lauderdale!

Mission tiki looks amazing - I love the contrast of colors with the dark wood. I still need to make it out there and check it out in person.

Face down tiki


Another biggie. BOT on forehead for scale. These guys are going to sit on a lava rock base and cover a structural pole outside of the snack bar. One more monster to carve today.

Hell ya Danny. Love him. The whole place is tight. What a great canvas for you to work magic on.

I'm trying to wrangle a log that size to drop into Foundation Tiki Bar here in Brew Town. We've had so much rain this December that getting to the log dump is nearly impossible with all the mud.

Pine or palm? How are you moving it? Wrestling it around the room? Sometimes that's the easiest.

Looking forward to seeing him standing!
