Here's an update! Got a call about a Murial, the guy wanted a beach theme , so i thought beach/Tiki great reason to do some more Tiki airbrushing! I also made sure I took some progress pics! The center opening actually opens up to reveal a real bar!

Nice work Nick. Is that a mirrored pufferfish disco ball in the "Tiki Rodder" picture?

You're not going to make a lot of friends around here with brightly colored tikis. People on this forum prefer tradtional wood, or wood stained carvings. Tiki carvings that are painted are usually very muted, or very little color used as an accent.

I would hit all of these with a nice coat of ebony stain to push back the colors a little bit. These look more like cement parking lot dividers...

Ha, Ha,! I totally agree with you all but, I just do as I get paid to. Also unbelievably they sold like hot cakes from what the guy told me! Go figure!! Thanks for all the input from everyone, even if it was negative. This is a true forum where people actually tell the truth!! By the way I'm doing some more this week I'll try to post as soon as I get em done to give you guys some more gut wrenching turn your stomach feelings!

These were more traditional on the first 4 and the last was one I did with a tropical theme, with the dolphins.
