This first one is a PNG middle Sepik river, Tambunum Village inspired pendant, ornament, rear view mirror "hanger" etc. Polymer "clay", antiqued with acrylic paint and sealed with polyurethane. At about 4.5", it is larger than most all of my other pendants.



I wanted a more general post to show some photos, Thanks for any comments.

This is my version of a Marquesas Islands U'u war club, at least the business end, as a pendant or a pin. I didn't make the dime, it's just for scale (grin).

Wally, this is some great-looking stuff (That is a regulation dime and not MadDogMike's giant dime*, right?). You've made modern materials look antique and interesting.

*Sorry for the obscure reference, but, needless to say, Mike has a giant dime. Be warned.

Yea, it's a regulation dime. Unfortunately worth about six cents, so I'm good for 3 more comments!

Going to try posting a few more tikis and a pork/puffer nite lite I may add some polyurethane to to simulate varnish.





Vanuatu Tamtam and head pendants

I couldn't use them as Rearview Mirror Hangers, would get into a wreck from staring at the cool pendant instead of the road. Some cool stuff Wally!

Ahh, you get used to them, I've got about a dozen hanging from mine, as well as a Great White pendant and a 4 1/2 inch tall sculpt I did of the Black Knight (dismembered version) from Monty Python's Holy Grail. They make great conversation starters.

Someone asked about the process with these, most of what I sent is here: also a few more photos....
_______________________________________________________________________________________
"I use Premo polymer clay, sculpt my original and make a full mold or a component mold(s). The "clay" comes in assorted colors that you can mix like paint. I do bake it, but it is low temp in a small convection oven at around 275 degrees for at least 30 mins. for each 1/4 inch of thickness. Once cooled I do some further detailing then coat with polyurethane, when dry bake again at about 180 or so for about 15 to 20 minutes to "set" the poly.After that I string them and hopefully sell them, unless they come out really, really good then I wear them as part of my ever growing collection."

These are some samples of whats at the gift shop at the MAI-KAI, and a custom one I did for a F.S.U. alum. and yes! the tongues that protrude wag back and forth when they are jostled the least little bit!
