I'm sorry if I have posted in the wrong section.....

Does anyone have a foam Maoi or Tiki that they would be interested in selling? I've seen the amazing work you've done in this thread.

I can't find anything online, and I have tried carving foam myself it's a mess.

I have been doing my homework and searched the marketplace and have done a search for the entire forum. If someone can point in the the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

Hey not sure of your location but we have been hand carving foam Tikis for about three years none of that computer milled stuff for us. You can see some pictures of our stuff under Moai Mold in the Tiki carving forum. We sell and rent foam tikis/Bars and Signs for Professional event companies. We are located in South Florida and have done total events before Bars/Signs/Tiki statues 4 foot to 10 feet in length. All of our work is resin coated and hand painted. I will include a few samples of our work

Sorry about the double response. Hit the submit button by accident. Here are a few photos from a party we did last month.

10 foot TIki statue. There are a pair of these. Usually they are used together and there is a 8 foot sign that hangs between them that says Aloha. This is typically used for an entrance way. We have made custom signs in the Past. Sorry I don't have any pics of these.

Thank you everyone for your responses.

I checked out Southseasarts.com and they are sold out. I have spent weeks looking all over the internet and have had no luck.

This would be an awesome busines to go into since there are no suppliers.

Barefoot Tiki I love your tikis. Please send me more info.

I got mine off a jobsite where they used them for concrete forms . Then I heated a large machette and went to town . This eliminates the foam particles mess but is kinda stinky . I then put a 1/2" of mortar on top and finished .
I then used rock textured paint and ....Instant Moai !
