I don't want to keep invading Buzzy's thread with my attempts at carving, so here's Cammo's Corner, where everybody is welcome and every day is Carving Day!

(That means YOU should be carving, not me, I can only grab an hour or two a week to do this stuff...)

Here's the first stages of my "Danger Mask" - designed after the early days of Tiki collecting, 1907-1935, when Man Ray started photographing 'em and Paris galleries were going crazy over the new Tribal/Tiki look.

So this is sort of a Melanesian/Fang/Streamliner 30's mask.

Paper drawings, I blew this up to a big sheet at Kinko's -



The mask, carved and stained, but the face is just starting to emerge.

This sucker is big, you can see my heel to the left.



Details -

It's stained with English Chestnut, two heavy coats. I plan to carve in the face, then sand off some of the stain to give it an eged look.



This idea of staining first, carving last is interesting...





Laytah!

When's storytime?
This mask is gonna be INCREDIBLE!
Love the whole ManRAy,Duchamp, Picasso, Cubist/Surrealist homage going on there!
Those guys were just dialed into the legitimacy of Polynesian artforms!
Way to go CAMMO!

Happy Carving Day Cam!

I'm going to go call our buddy BillCrud ...
He can post on your thread now.

That TikiMod piece you're doing inspires me to have a martini.

Buzzy Out!

Babalu - Sold! That'll be a million bucks!
No, seriously, wait till it's done before you want to hang it on yer wall. It might end up looking crappy.

Buzzy - send that Crud guy over here. He isn't getting on yer nerves, is he? Naaaaah.

Hey, everybody else, thanx for the cheers. Maybe I should hurry up and finish the blighter. The left side of the nose is done, the right side for some reason is taking longer.

The secret is - it IS made of iron!

I REALLY like this style. You've really captured that period of break through design. Nice.

I pitched in this morning and finished the Danger Mask off. It was pretty simple, actually.

Define the nose, slant in the mouth, and sand the stain a bit to age it:




So the question is - should I use a semi-gloss poly coat for the finish? I really like the natural palm color of the face, and don't want that to change much.

Go poly?

Loving the vintage modern vibe on this Looks like a designer piece from the 60s that has been sitting on thrift shelf waiting for someone to realise what it actually is!

Cammo, I Love this guy! I Love nice straight, crisp lines you are getting, they Don't come easy.I Love the contemporary look too, again I Know it Ain't Easy! Hell I might even try the Stain'n carve method too as it seems to get great results.
Dooin' it Well.
