Started mine last night finally. I broke out my new dremel tool I bought some time ago for the studio for an idea that didn't pan out. I decided to try my hand at carving bamboo, though I really have carved very little of...anything ever. Holding a dremel tool is really hard to get used to, and learning to go with the grain even harder.

First I sketched out my shrunken head on the bamboo

Then I started carving switching off between two different bits. I really needed a third smaller one for details but had to work with what I had.

Then I tried to get as deep as I could without penetrating completely through the bamboo.

The plan was after it was carved properly that I would woodburn the details into it, but I could not find my good woodburner and had to settle for a pretty lousy one I got from a toy hobby kit when I was a kid.

I really should have stopped there, but I was really not confident in how it was looking especially my carving so I decided to add an element I was more familiar with... paint. I think I really screwed it up at this point.


Disappointed with the outcome so far, but maybe it will still work out in the end after I add the other details.

I like it Tiger. But in the end it's YOU that has to be happy with it

We have so many cool projects started and even a few almost finished! You may have noticed your fearless leader (me) has been talking the talk but not walking the walk ~ I hadn't started a project yet! But now I have a plan and have cast a skull. Next to do some serious modification to make it into a Ndaokus/Trophy Skull mug

One of the important features of the Asmat "Ndaokus" is the hole in the side of the head where the brains were removed to be eaten. Of course, you would not do that to grandpa so there is no hole in the side of the "Ndambirkus" or ancestral skull


There is a dished piece of clay behind the hole so as to give the illusion that the skull was bashed in while still allowing it to be filled with potent rum concoctions

I was wondering about the hole vs rum!
I thought it was the type of mug you would have to fill fast and drink faster.
Leave it up to Mad Dog to have the hole repaired from inside the skull.
Go Mike, go
Can't wait to see this come to life.
