Thanks Ben

A few places I couldn't sand properly so I used the torch to burn it a little and darken it.

However when the smoke cleared tiki had changed.
Some of his mouth had gone his nose had gotten smaller and his eyes changed expression - oops. However now he has an rustic charred look of sorts will post pics soon.

I understand why you burned him but have to say there are better ways to get the same effect. Burning wood may be an "authentic" way of getting a "patina" with wood, but it is also the most destructive. For smaller pieces I prefer using paint or stain. It is much easier to use and control (plus it doesn't smell as bad).
