here are some photos of how i carve the "Scales-Tiki" step by step.

first i transfer the picture to the piece of wood i have chosen


then i make a stencil for the outlines


i cut to the outline and remove the wood




for smaller holes i use borer and chisels




next step is to thin out arms and legs




now work on the face




adding the decoration




for the right color i add wood stain until i am satisfied


to finish the tiki i add the eyes and the tiki becomes alive!




wish you happy carving!

Very nice Rio. That's some decent sized chunks of shell for the eyes.

Earlier today, I read this Hawaiian proverb and it's already coming in handy
.
‘Ike aku, ‘ike mai, kôkua mai; pela iho la ka nohona ‘ohana
Recognize others, be recognized, help others, be helped; such is a family relationship.

We are all here to learn from each other. Hope to see more of your work.
