VERY COOL!!!!!

Jon, ZeroTiki usually attends Oasis, we'll see if he replies.
TikiAno, the regular Amaco Velvet underglazes come in pint bottles but most of the Designer Velvet underglazes only come in 2 ounces.

Got mine pretty much done... but I am not sure if I should just leave it as is for an art piece, or make it utilitarian by turning it into something like a caddy to hold stuff. Let me know what you guys think?

Meanwhile here are a few pics of it now...





I ended up doing a sort of scrimshaw effect where I carved decently deep lines then rubbed watered down paint into the grooves. I like the effect. Too bad it doesn't have a waterproof inside it would make a nice beverage cup. It may be too tall for a caddy even after I cut the ends off a bit to make them even unless someone has mighty big paint brushes or something. I dunno... thoughts? Ideas? Anyone?

Sweet Tiger! I say leave it too.

For some reason the spots didn't show up on my glaze. This type of spotted glaze usually has crystals in it that settle to the bottom, I stirred and shook it well but didn't see any crystals. I don't know if I did something wrong or if they forgot to put crystals in this batch? Still a cool color that should look interesting with the Moss Green Opalescent over it. Maybe I will mask off everything but the skull and do some spots using the trusty old toothbrush method. The skull color and the bamboo pole color are very close now but I have a plan for that too

Sadly, financial difficulties make Oasis impossible... But I will be there in spirit.

Tiger, looks great as is- carving and painting came out perfectly!

Mike, that is looking awesome now- but there's MORE happening to it? Wow.

If everyone's making extra cannibal pieces to exchange as Oasis... uh oh. Have to hurry up- or, since I have two pieces already, will one of those work?

One of employees just surprised me w/ news that she was going to be out of town that weekend, when I told her it was Tiki Oasis she got slightly nervous and may rethink her plans... ha! I'll still be there, probably a bit less if that happens....

Tigertail, I like it as is.

Mike, can't wait to see finished. Weird about the missing crystals.

Thanks Cy, I need to carve more deeply. Since I now have until the 10th instead of the 1st as I had in my head I'll have plenty of time. As usual, I'm learning a lot with this project like - 1) a dremel is harder to control than one might think and 2) I should have watered down my black paint or used stain instead of paint in the carved areas. My husband thinks it looks drawn on instead of carved. I agree. I'll try to rectify that.


Thanks for looking,

Ano- sorry for the confusion
You don't have to give anything away
I thought I'd make a 2nd piece to give to someone at Oasis
Not a swap
Just a lil cannibal gift
Looks like 4 of u going so far
In a few days we can pull a name out of a mug
And that person gets it


Jon

Update




Lori- we were posting at the same time
Looking good.....
Jon

Thanks everyone for the input! I will leave it as is. It does have a crack lengthwise in the back but it doesn't go all the way through to the interior thank goodness. I guess it just adds to the primitive "charm".

And Lori... Amen to the fact that dremel tools are a lot harder to manage than they seem. I found that out as well. Can't tell you how many times my hand went numb working on mine. I will have to invest in that flexible shaft that someone mentioned on here. Looks like you got more control over your line carving than I did though, mine look like they are scribbled by a three year old.

July is almost over. I am so happy that my piece is finished and can be added to this really cool page of wonderful art. I'm boxing mine today so that it can be mailed on the 10th or taken to Oasis.

hang10tiki I'm so happy to have my name go into the hat for your tiki carving, my fingers are crossed.

My poor hula woman boiling in the pot. I wish I had some dry ice.


I'll have more photos on my "other crafts" thread. The bending part of the straw has to go in first.

Cheers, Wendy

Tiger, I think your piece looks great. I went with the "primitive-as-design-aesthetic" argument myself.

Wendy, wow! Looks perfect! Hopefully.... I can see it in person at Oasis! (Since Jon usually receives all Art Swap items, perhaps he'll let me have a look). Ha.

Clock is clicking away.... look forward to seeing everyone else's last second additions.
