Hey everyone, thanks sincerely for the kind words. Glad you like em.
Featherstone, I donít have a website or anything like that for selling my gear, although I will probably try and get a myspace site set up or something to show some of my pieces. If thereís something you like, perhaps drop me a PM and will see what we can do.
Most of the wood I use is just what I pick up on the side of the road, when people dump their tree prunings. Iíve really got no idea what most of the wood is.
The big guy was a donated tree pruning from an Australian Sugar Gum (so Iím told).
Doesnít seem to have split any more since completion, which is good. Itís got about 5 coats of oil on it for protection too.
Here's one i've just completed. Sure the one eye theme is more monster than tiki, but he was fun to do. Didn't really want to stitch his lips at first, but once i started on the eye i realised there wasn't much room left for a mouth, so i improvised.
His eye glows in the dark too and has a green emerald colour rhinestone deep inside the cats eye pupil. Very hard to see in the photos.
One-Eye is also from that same Sugar Gum, stained and oiled.
