these next 2 I used the same stain, from the same can
the moai has a nice sweet golden brown color to it,
but the tongue dude came out with reddish overtones.
Does anyone know why this happens ?


Looks to me like the moai was 'de-barked' down deep to the good wood, and the tongue tiki not as deep, barely past the bark.

4wd - thats what I thought at first, but I did cut deep inside the mouth and tongue
and the stain is reddish in there too.
Maybe its the log itself or something. I'm not sure, but I will try the same color
again on another piece/log and see what happens.

On another note, as you all can see, I am all over the place with
the different styles of carvings. I say its because I dont want them all to look the same. Keeps me interested and challenged.

Are the two pieces from the same tree?

no, not the same tree, but one would think that stain
from the same can would be at least close in color.

Those EI's (Easter Islanders) are about as stoic as poker players! Those are four righteous tikis spread out there!!
