Hey guys.

I'm new, I've made one tiki and am currently working on my 2nd. I did a quick search, and I didn't see anything that jumped out about torching in lines. If I missed something please link me.

Do most of you do the torch thing on the cut-in lines to give them more definition? Do you spray bomb them?

And if you go outside the lines do you just sand the stuff off you don't want?

These probably sound like really dumb questions, but I'm more of a car/surfboard guy & I'm new to working with wood so go easy on me.

Anyone want to enlighten me a little on the best way to do this? Or some good ways?

Also, just wanted to thank the mods on the site for having all of this helpful info online. This place is an excellent resource.

Welcome to TC pjc5150.

You might want to post this in the carving forum instead. Some of the carvers visit this forum once in a while but they mostly hang out over in Carving.

Good luck
