I found out this wood The same used for the Island Girl in earlier posts) is an Octopus wood but is not Schefflera.

It is Radermachera sinica in the same family as the Desert Willow but is native to subtropical China and Taiwan. It's called 'China Doll'

How Appropriate!

patience is essential. Progress at a crawl, hoping the end result will be more than worth it.

A little progress. Scales beginning; a long tedious process. I decided she needed to have a butt. With scales, but a Butt.

We're getting there!

Teak oil or lacquer? I haven't decided yet.

Thanks for the input guys!
It's been a while since I've heard anything from Tiki Central and I was beginning to wonder if our folks had abandoned the sight.





We're in the final stages and I'm getting ready to mount her on a wood burl or other item. As always, welcome comment, suggestions and criticisms alike.

feel welcome!

A beautiful carving Sunset Mike, I hope you don't take offense when I say she has a nice rear end.

This Manzanita Burl is a great a compliment of my sculpture as I could hope for. The work of the Ultimate Artist holding the works of human hands.

None whatever! I would have it no other way than that. Nice for a fish butt.

The Finish. Teak oil was the decision. It does somewhat take away from detail, but the color is beautiful. It will take about a week to cure.

In works such as her I use the traditional Artists Moniker. The name that goes back to my days as an oil painter.
