Hey all !!
I found this site and wanted to say 'MAHALO !'
I carved some logs that I kept when I cut down my palms.
These are from oldest to newest. ( I like think I gettin betta )

What you tink ?

these da first few







these are the last couple I did





this one is a dead trunk my friend wanted me to carve.(still in ground)
its kinda rotten and hollow inside , so I couldnt go deep.
thats why I painted it for better depth

Hello Kino!

Welcome on board! Nice palm carve you have!
The posts where you can't see the pics are too old, sure, it is very very frustrating...

Keep good time with carving and share your work!

J.

Kino,

Welcome to TC, Glad to have you here and Really happy that you seem to be Bitten by the Tiki Bug. Once you carve a few you are under the spell and can't get away. These first ones are Excellent for beginnings and it looks like you have done this before?

Yes, the older posts with the thumbnails or Tiny pic's are Aggravating but there's not much can be done. We Used to use Shutterfly a lot to store and post images. They suffered growing pains a couple times and renamed all their master files to the extent that all the stored photos were renamed and thus failed to show anything more than a red X or sometimes a thumbnail. Some artists posted links to shutterly as I did if you look on page one of my thread. But, alas, it isn't the same and would be nicer if the links actually worked...

Benzart, thanks for looking.
I just dabble with sketching and being creative, but these TIKIS have really bit me hard. Over the past 5 or 6 years I have made about 15 or so.
Just for my own enjoyment and for gifts. I never really did anything like this before that. You should have seen my first one, YIKES !, all the reliefs were backwards. lol. It looked like a 4 year olds scribble.

Now , I have a connection for some logs and want to make a whole army of TIKIS.

Aloha Kino! I can almost here the chainsaw rumble as i look at these toothy fellows. Where in NM are you? I spent ten years in the Burque where I curated a gallery on route 66. I sure miss the smell of green chile's roasting!- Hodaddy

hodadhank, I have to change my location, I was just being creative (although I did live in ABQ for 2 yrs myself)

I'm actually in - The Valley of The Sun



BigT, I wish I was that good with a chainsaw ! I use the Arbor Tech carving tool.

Thanks for all the kind words.
I have been looking at the work of others here and its making me feel like a real amatuer. But I will continue on the journey. Any and all comments and suggestions that will help me progress are greatly appreciated.

I have noticed that some have actually drawn lines on the palms. In the begining
I tried that myself , but had bad luck with the marker pens. Any suggestions for markers, etc. ? Also, does anyone carve palms when they are still wet ?

Thanks in advance

I use the Sharpie brand markers (they're permanent), but haven't drawn on palm. Don't think it would be any different though.

I use chalk or pencil since they both clean up easily. The chalk comes off with a stiff bristle brush and the pencil erases with a light sanding.
Palm is much easier to carve wet but for any details you want to add, you need to let it dry some after roughing it out. Each log and type of palm is different and you'll learn to get a feel for what you can do with them.

Cheers.

watango- thanks for looking and kindness

Big T- thanks for the input

Heath- I kinda found that adding detail was hard when dryer. (not that I have a lot of detail in the first place) It seems the palm wants to fray more the dryer it gets.

I am getting ready to start another piece and after browsing here on TC I have grown fond of the more traditional (?) styles of TIKIS.
The full body and headress types make me warm & fuzzy. I have wanted to do a full body for a long time and I say that time has come !!!

Stay Tuned......
