Am I right in thinking that when it comes to resin, the look is actually all in the paint?

I guess the paint makes all the difference. When I first received my Design Toscano tiki pair, my wife thought they were made of real wood.

As I've mentioned earlier, I really like the resin tikis. They're easier to move around the room and are easily transportable for parties and such.

I've been looking at the Design Toscano tikis for a while now and now that I hava a yard to put 'em in I think I might pull the trigger...
One question to those who already have them. Are they solid or hollow castings?

Aloha and Mahalo

No, they are hollow. there is no way to tell (no holes) other than that they are light weight. If you remember a post weeks ago about the God of Wind killing my tikis-this was one of them. You can see the hole and crack


It dosen't look so bad from the front though, I say it faired pretty well considering it toppled over into the pool.


Here is it's former site. There is a huge clump of Raphis palms which knocked it into the pool. There is now a plaster tiki from O.A. It is not as tall and hollow in the bottom so I drove a stake into the ground and up into it, to hopefully stablize it in the wind. (fuzzy pic but it's starting to rain!)

Wow, I guess the only way I would have known that was if mine were cracked open like yours! Bummer. But hey, maybe you can try to repair them. I'd pickup a small peice of fiberglass cloth and resin and try sealing the crack similar to the way you would repair a ding on a surfboard. That and some touch-up paint might do the trick.

I'll have to search around for the airline catalog for cheaper tikis. Who would have thunk it - tikis in Sky Mall...

As for a fiberglass/outdoor use tikis, BRING 'EM ON, Rain!!! I want a garden of giant tikis surrounding my pool this summer. Shipping on a large outdoor moai would probably be a consideration, though.
I know my brother was looking for moai heads for his patio...

Not much inflation on those 2 tikis. 9 years ago the price was $125 for the pair and now they're $135.
