Hi ALL !! I would first like to thank Kirby as the original artist of his Tiki called Skullkeeper for my inspiration (or shameless coping) and guide from photos in Tiki Central. Here is the first picture I took even though it is almost finished.

Note the WEBER TIKE carving station. LOL

I think the original was small so Kirby I can't take this one to the beach to take a picture.

You can only do this on a hard wood palm as this one was.


OK! OK I will admit I cheated (a little bit). I forgot the ears. So I ran to the craft store and got some basswood and then glued them on. AHHHHHHH! I feel better already.


More pictures to come. KEEP YOUR CHISELS SHARP AND BANDAIDS CLOSE

Wow, this thread is really negative.

Two thoughts as someone who also does design for a living, albeit in a different medium:


1. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

2. life is too short to worry about this stuff, have a cocktail and dial up digitiki.com.

WHOAH ! GUYS ! Carving is a hobby for me. I work full time in the medical field and I have no formal artistic skills at all.

BUT I LOVE TIKI's. Alien/Kirby/Bowana I am sorry for imitating your work, your art, your style. THANK YOU CAMMO for your comments which I totally agree to. For a guy who has carved less than 10 tiki's to cause children to go with out food is BS. Most of my Tiki's are given away to friends so I guess those few people won't be buying one from you.

I have NO artist/graphic/design skills so I admit when I copy and acknowledge my sources. I will endeavor to improve my skills to develope my own style so I wont offend the profesionals and if anyone wants to copy my work, feel free to do so. I will be flattered. BUFFBAD

Buffbad, nice job. I am not sure copying is a correct term here. Seems like you have your own interpretation of the pieces the artists on TC have done.

Thank you for the kind words Fumacius. The palm wood is painted with a MinWax stain. In the case of the canible Tiki the color was Provintial (211). The stain was left to dry for several days in direct sunlight and oily spots (poor areas of absorbtion) are wiped with a dry rag. Then final coats are of a MinWax Polyurathane (fast-drying) Clear Gloss. The first coat is applied then dried for several days. Then the piece is very lightly sanded and one final very thin coat is applied. I hope this answers your question. BUFFBAD

Yes dude...I got +- what you mean..I went to buy now a new polish with no brightness.So that the new tiki stays with an old wood appearance.im making an experience, before i use this new polish i will try to paint the wood with shoes taint, and after that i will use the polish..
Im trying this in a small piece of wood, in case the results isnt as i want..
I will sow here later.
Cya later dude

Almost all here have been copying other artist or carver (my first) and you, you have the honesty to say ... I like "thegreenman" word: "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". Continue to have fun with carving...

as an artist I understand the issues of ownership/copyright infringement etc.
When it all boils down isn't everything an abstraction of an abstraction? I can totally respect the hostility of being copied but it is true "imitation is the highest form of flattery" It takes a pair of brass ones just to put anything out there online these days with the cut & paste society we live in. Still new here so not trying to step on any toes. I think both u carvers are awesome in your own styles-Noyes
