I sealled it with stain blocker/primer so mold doesnt come through


then I lay down a black base coat


then i put some white base to make the colors pop better


then I start with some color and fill in the white for eyes and teeth


then comes the brown


add a little yellow, orange, green and white for shading and effect


set the signiture with some puffy paint


set in some tribal detail with some puffy paint and varnish


stand back and admire

Stop, lol! got 2 days into it, one day for carving and a half day for paint. Actually, the guy i made it for said it looked a little on the smaller size. He wants me to make another bigger one too.

He paid me a big compliment and said he has 7 rootballs from mai tiki, and said mine is his best tiki.

Nice work, I really love your use of paint/colour. It really makes your tikis pop and stand out from the rest.
