I just had a look at your website- I can't believe you manage to get the subtle colouring using only a candle. Muy interesante!

surfin maybe they don't like tomatoes that much

Atomic Mess Gracias! It's a mix of the distance at which you put the fire, the different layers of the bamboo, that burns different, and scratching off the layers until you see the color you like. It can take a lot of time, but I like the way it looks

That sounds very intensive, but the results are worth it!

Hey Clarita, great stuff! MaddogMike turned me onto your thread for research on bamboo carving. You really have some wonderful imaginative tiki art, I went back a few years in the thread to get a better idea on the bamboo carving and before I knew it was caught up in reading the whole thing. I don't know why I never saw your thread before, but I love all of your designs. I am going to be using a dremel tool for my carving since I don't own chisel style tools, I really hope it doesn't get too splintery. It looks like you can't do really intricate finely detailed designs with bamboo or it might break/splinter? Any advice for someone entirely new to this kind of carving?

Thanks Benz the greatest!!

Hi tigertail777! Sorry I didn't see this earlier.Very glad you like my work, thanks for taking the time to look at this thread, it's a long story by now
I never tried using a dremel on the bamboo, I use a knife mostly. To me it's the best tool, because the bamboo has all this fibres, so it's better to first cut the shape you want to take out and then start taking layer by layer inside that shape until you get the deepness you want.
But if I would have to use one, I would use very dry bamboo, if it's fresh/green it's a lot more soft and probably much more complicated to use a dremel on. You can dry fresh one using fire until it gets brown. But if you can find bamboo that is old and very dry, that would be the best choice I guess... I hope that helps, and thanks again.

Aloha everybody! sorry for the disappearance, I've been flying very low lately, and everything I've been trying to make, came up to difficult or to complicated.. for example

Tiki-Girl 2.0



For the ones of you that remember,this was a pendant I've made a few years ago
and this is the candle holder version, it works with a led tea candle.
