its hilarious... the midcentury modern tiki movement is a bastardization of the religious icons of an ancient culture... making them into mugs, putting them on shirts and such... but if you paint one using a certain kind of paint? THATS GOING TOOOO FAR!!!! Seriously? Wow.

other artist here work in media that you dont see in the history books... lucite tikis, digital ink, styles that didnt exist in the mid century, but they are beloved and people pay HUNDREDS for their prints, THOUSANDS for their originals and everyone here on TC fawns over them like they are rock stars... woe be to them if they ever do anything that has some metallic paint in it... thats just over the line.

its just preposterous.
