I made rubber molds and cast them with hard foam. Here is a concrete casting I did... problem is foam is expensive and can be hard to work with. Concrete is cheaper and works better but is so heavy.

Impressive. When carving the original, you have to think about everything being a relief cut - so that it will release - right? Did you accomplish this with your first go-around - or did you have to modify the original design?

First time. Got the 3 molds now. The full tiki is a pain and cost me about $20 in foam. It's a real pain. hardest part is painting to look real. Takes probably close to an hour to paint one. It cost me about $1000 in material to make the molds. It's really not worth it to make a full tiki. But, you live, you learn.

That,s real cool.
But, it's no quick short cut.
Been there.
At least the concrete will last outside a while.
