Great card, Mike! I saw that one online and wanted to replicate it but was too lazy.

Very well done. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Thanks guys

I am a religious man and I believe the Bible admonition against worshiping idols. I don't worry much about Tikis because there is not really anyone worshiping them. But I felt a little uneasy when I went to make a Ganesh oil lamp for a Hindu friend. I am pretty careful about joining clay and seldom have kiln explosions. When the first Ganesh exploded in the kiln I figured it was a coincidence. But when the second one exploded I decided it was a sign. I won't be trying again

Number 1

Number 2


But I did try an experiment that worked out fairly well. I like to use Styrofoam shapes for slump molds, they work will but can be a bit rough in texture and need to be coated with tissue prior to each use. I took my Styrofoam form and covered it with plaster impregnated gauze (cast material), worked really well. It smoothed out the foam, eliminated the need for tissue, and the plaster helped absorb water from the clay.

You put a lot of work into those elephants. I hope your friend knew how much you wanted to do this for him.
Those tiny air bubbles that explode are what Tiki Hula and I are dreading with his AL DEAD bowl. Wendy

I noticed my last few posts haven't been very "Tiki", this one isn't any better. I am making these foam animals for a water wells for Africa fundraiser display. Warthog & gerenuk are about 2 1/2 feet long. Elephant is 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide, his trunk will sway with help from an oscillating fan.



Edit to add the finished scene

The painted background is not mine (I can't paint ) The water is the pond is intentionally "muddy" to dramatize the need for clean deep wells in Uganda instead of polluted groundwater


But, the warthog has inspired me for a slightly more "Tiki" project for the Headhunter Harbor; I want to try a more permanent concrete over foam sculpture of a lying boar to hide away in a corner of my tropical garden. Scratched and stained concrete should make cool pig skin but not such great eyes or tusks. So I want to try to make those out of glazed clay, embed them in the foam, and concrete around them.

Anyone have any experience in concrete over foam?
