I really had high hopes of finishing my tiki this weekend. It's just about finished.

This is what it looked like at the end of the day.






I continued to go deeper around the eye and nose area. The nose looks a lot better, but I liked how the nose looked back in April.

I want to complete the texturizing of the tiki. I dig that gouged look. I'm going to continue the leaf pattern around the top and back side of the tiki. Then the plan is to sand and smooth the rough edges. Age it a bit with a mini butane torch. Then Ta-da, I will finally be finished with my 1st tiki!

Look at you Go TikiGirl, you are gonna be a tough carver to beat one day soon if you keep up the progress like this. Excellent detail, the mouth and noseare great. The eyes a bit small but fit perfectly.
What kind of finish are you going to use?

Thanks Ben. I agree with you on the eyes. If you look at the first pattern, it was supposed to have a triangular line on the bottom of the eyes. The eyes wouldn't have looked so small if they stayed framed within the original pattern.

The finish, most likely a combination of dark and light, after I age it with the butane burner, I'll sleep on it and see what hits me.

Hey CheekyGirl. You gonna do this right away, or wait until the next chop gathering?

Buzz, I think I'm going to try and finish the carving part of the tiki this Memorial Day weekend. I'm going to burn it and wait until the next chop chop for the staining.

I want to start a new tiki for the next chop also!

I'm hell bend on finishing up this tiki soon. So this is what I was able to accomplish this Memorial Day Weekend.





I started cleaning up and detailing.




Extended the leaf pattern on the back and around the tiki.




Added texture by continuing the "chisel/gouging" marks.






My latest "To Me From Me With Love" toy is a Black & Decker Mouse Sander.
(Babalu, thanks for the tip!)

With my new sander, I plan on smoothing out the rough edges around the eyes, mouth and leaf pattern.
Since this tiki has been taking me so long to finish, and I've messed with it so much, I've decided to call it the:

"LEAF ME ALONE TIKI"

I really do love the way he's turned out. I'll miss the little guy though. I feel like I've watched him grow up. (We won't talk about that unfortunate puberty issue.)
