Hi.
Finally got som tikis done. The first one is the lono I started on in december. It was resting half done for a few months, and I got back working on it this summer.











I wanted it to look old so I bought some paint (light brown) but the store gave me the wrong paint (dark grey), which was good couse now it looks superold!




Here is a samll one I did recently, burned it whit a food-burner.

WOW! Man, you are a natural. I especially like the big Lono. Looks like he's hundreds of years old. What kind of stain/finish did you use on him? Looks very nice.

Tanx all! It sure is good being at TC! Here in sweden most people ask me why im interested in troll´s, ore why I spend time playing whit those indians....!

S-n-t: Im not realy sure what kind of paint it was...as I mentiond earlier it was a lucky misstake, but It was grey and water based. We call it "Lasyr" in swe. but I dont know how to translate that.

Here is a closer pic.
I painted it once, and sanded it just a bit.


A-akua: What I realy ment was a cooking-torch, like this...
Its used for burning sugar and such, works super on wood!

Makutiki, Ditto what everyone else said! Glad to see you Finally finish this Lono, he turned out FanTastic, Very Well done. You need to spend MORE Time Carving so it seems to me!

These are really, really good! I especially line the cracks in the lono, they add a ton of personality.
