Watango, Grog, and Congatiki thank you very much. If you guys like them, then I must be getting close to doing something right. Each time I read posts like those I am motivated to do more. The TC community is great and really helps a struggling artist stay motivated.

I really like your stained carvings and painted carvings as well. The stain fits the carvings perfectly. On the pained items, have you ever tried antiquing? It makes the painted surface look like it's older and removes the crispness of the new paint. I used to use it on Christmas ornaments and one of a kind bird houses to give them an older used or weathered look. IF you do use it I would suggest painting a scrap board similar to your tiki items and tring it out there. Great stuff!

Wow, Thank you everyone. Surfintiki, AA, Tikilizard, seeksurf, and Benzart you guys are too kind. I look to you guys stuff for inspiration and it blows me away that you would like what I am doing. I had just finished reading the newest issue of Tiki Magazine and the article on Benzart, then checked my thread and he had posted to my carvings, just blows me away. I am going to go out to the shop, and carve some more. Hope everyone has a great day.

nice pieces dan. totally agree with tikilizard. on the painted pieces try using a glaze if your interested in making it look older. be careful you don't use too much, it can go from really interesting and older looking to wtf rather quickly. so if you do try it use a scrape piece and use light coats until you build up a patina to where you like it. the pieces look great. keep up the good work.
