You got it Kon-Hemsby!!

I am thinking of seveal versions that will be a range in price. There will be a very basic, simply adorned version and perhaps a very grand cerimonial version with more parrrot feathers and hand made beads. I will keep ya all posted...now I am back to painting!!

Mahalo!! THOR

HEY HEWEY!!!

Custom heads might be a bit pricey for some if I were to do that..considering the time it takes to sculpt an original and then make molds and casting..etc. I could do these full time they are so fun..but my Hawaii publishers would give up on me for sure!! Haa My painting schedule for this year is off the chart.

I have thought of doing a few celebs but was not sure which would fit the bill best. One I was dieing to do..because sewing his lips would be so much fun is Mick Jagger!! Also a classic English Explorer of some sort that was in the wrong place at the right time.

Great suggestions Hewey!! Hope all is well with you and your projects!!!

Thanks tikiriffic and TravelingJones!!

I just got all my exotic parrot feathers I won on ebay!! These will add some really cool color and authentic detail to these heads!! I will try to get a few done in the next week or so when I take a breather from my painting responsibilities!!

Have a great week!!!

Those are insanely realistic. Better then the ones they used to sell at Ripley's Believe it or not!

Excellent, Freeky lookin Stuff Thor. almost too real looking. I'd hate to wake up and see one of these guys, I'm not sure if I would shoot it and run or shoot it over and over,. Either way, I would Shoot it for sure!

HAAAAAAA I am CRAKIN UP TIPSEY!! The lense on the camera distorts the face a bit..and ..in this picture It DOES look like Don Rickles!!! HAaaaa Now if we could only shut up Don's mouth from all the insults as easily as a shrunken head!!! HAAA

I made a mold of the head and it's now cast and painted..looks really real! I can now make dozens of this one. I will sculpt another soon that will be even better based on more study of actual heads. I will bring some of these to upcoming shows we will be exhibiting in this year!

HI BENZ!!! I will make one for you to shoot!!! HAaaa Better yet, if you do a few "shooters" of 151..they talk to ya at midnight!!..or try to...the stiches get in the way a wee bit!!!

Aloha!! Thor

2/22/07 I have recieved a bunch of private messages asking for more info on price and latest photos. I took these this morning of the one I did and shared in the sculpey stage before casting and paint. See below!! Feathers are actual Amazon parrot. I do these late at night after my other work..not sure of prices..they will vary based on detail. I am terrible at remebering to sign in here and check private messages so it's better to post responses here!!!! Sorry for just getting back to some of you now.

Aloha!! THOR

DANG Thor, does it mumble or grunt when you poke it with your finger? Does it smell like fried chicken? Is it squishy like dead puffer...?
-AND is it "food safe"?
