Following on from discussions from the last tiki art swap, the new theme has been decided - "Shrunken Heads and Headhunters". Now this seemed to be the majority vote, and its a fun theme to boot that caters for different mediums.

Soooo, the art can be any medium you want. Remember though, to think laterally about the theme! For example you could make a headhunter inspired lamp, and instead of using bamboo accents you could use plastic bones from Halloween decorations, like if it was made by a headhunter Think like a headhunter people!

THE DEADLINE IS APRIL 15 This gives you 2.5 months to get your ass into gear and make a piece of art.

The basics are:
* Participants all create an original piece of art on the theme
* The art can be anything you like (as long as it is original, no prints/moulded pendants etc), so it could be a painting, charcoal sketch, pastel art, a carving, a one off hand carved mug etc etc etc. Look at the links below to the previous swaps to get an appreciation of the variety of stuff you could make.
* Post your pics on this thread of the art you are making - to motivate everyone else to get involved!
* Post pics of your completed piece by the due date!!!
* All of the participants names will go into a hat, and be drawn out together. The list of swapping partners will be posted here. PM your swapping partner and exhange your postal details. Send your piece off and watch the mailbox like a hawk waiting for your art to arrive!
* Note - there is a reasonable chance that your creation will be sent overseas! You are responsible for postal costs of the item you create, so dont enter a 6 foot carving unless you're prepared to cover postage! One participant in the last swap got quoted an exorbient amount to post their piece with Fed Ex. By sending the same piece with US Postal Service, they saved themselves a huge amount of cash. Also, if you're looking to include real bone in your artwork, make sure it is suitably treated and cleaned to be acceptable for international customs checks - we dont want a piece confiscated by the feds because it contains a dirty bone (Kinny stop laughing ).

Check out the previous swaps for some inspiration:

I'll start it off here.


Doesn't look like much, but I've been messing with some paper mache lately so I figured that would be a good medium to work in.

It will be little heads, it will be a pair, I won't say more until I have more to show.

I've got a couple of my paper mache things in my thread here, just to give an idea that these have a long way to go.

well, ......since i have punked out on the last couple swaps, i'm in this time cause it's right up my alley.....and since i am the unofficial king of all things shrunken head, i will offer up one of my world famous shrunken head swag lamps, a $200 value... I can definately used some more shrunken head artwork for my home bar, "the headhunter hideaway".....


i'll jazz it up a bit to make something special, different than ones i've made before....this is my tentative submission....because the creative spark can strike any minute, i might come up with a different idea other than the lamp....we'll wait and see.....but for now, a lamp it will be.....
