Thanks for bouncing in fellers...You words inspire the next one.

Well, the carvings dried out well, and I put some clear coat on them. I think they turn out pretty good.

Lapatiki no. 1


Lapatiki no. 2


Lapatiki no. 3

Damn, those all look so good, coated and posed!

Didn't you start carving the crayon months ago? I remember you showing me the beginning of it, or is this the second one?

Will there be a Lapatiki #4???

Hey Wheeler,

Yeah, I did start that Lapatiki 3 a few months ago...I toasted that one on your concrete porch. This one is the second attempt. Carving on Crayons is not a new thing...check this cat's work out below. This dude has some major skills. Crayons are hard to carve...they tend to want to flake off in layers as you cut. I would say this one was my first and last one. I just wanted to play with it to see if I could do it.

More Lapatikis? Yup, that's most likely all I'm going to carve for some time. I really am having fun combining the rabbit image with Polinesian based elements as well as other symbols.

Man, I love that lil guy! Disregard the anti-anthropomorphic camp and follow your crazy unique vision....and you do know the significance of the brown crayon in Tiki revival history don't you?

"More Lapatikis? Yup, that's most likely all I'm going to carve for some time"

The first step is to admit you have a problem...My name is Babalu and I'm a lapaholic
They all look so awesome, the carved crayon just blows my little mind!

Strangely enough, I came across this just after posting my last comment. Funny how things work out like that sometimes...

Wow, thanks everyone for stopping in to post something.

Paipo - I found her too. Another good reason not to get into Crayon carving I think...there is already far to many playing this gig. But seeing how that gal is carving really very loosely and still grabbing up US$200. a Crayon, it makes it tempting I like her bases, but I think I tend to like the other guy's (Phipot & Abidi) works a little better. I have no clue how they did that spiral cut in that one Crayon? It seems impossible to me. Machine?
