I'll see what I can do. Gonna start a new one tomorrow.On this last one someone mentioned paint. The only paint is the white for the teeth and it was too bright so I took the torch to it and darkened it. The green and the maroon for the tounge and eyes was stain. I did use the torch to give it definition after the stain. Will continue to post my stuff. I dig this site. Tucson Tiki

Wow, just went thru your post from the start. What a learning curve. Your work is as good or better than most I've seen. I love the color. Hope to see more.

The green guy is pretty wild!! Nice touch with the "thingie" in the back of his throat.

You are progressing extremely fast. Keep it up.

Thanks for all the kind words. I made really good progress on my next carve this last weekend. I am trying out different carve styles. My problem is I like all kinds of tiki styles. I just gonna keep carving some wild stuff. I like to take different aspects of designs I have seen and kinda melt them together. This one I am doing now stands approx. 6'5" tall and is about 12" in diameter. Haven't figured how I'm gonna finish the bottom of it yet but I'm sure it will come to me. This one will get a light stain and satin clear. This is just roughed in. I still need to detail the mouth out a little more to get better definition on the little tongue. Who doesn't like a little tongue? Should be able to get it done by the end of the week if the weather warms up a bit. Kinda cold here in Tucson the last couple of days. Carve on!

Very nice. Man you are doing some great work.
You used that last log so well, meaning he
is stretched all throughout that log and it looks great.

Thanks Seeksurf. I used to live in Buckley along time ago. Now Tucson Az. I started the Hotrod-A-Rama in Tacoma a few years back. Turned it over to my clubmates in the Mischief Makers Car Club. Now I just dig the sun and carve.
