I went a little too dark on this guy. Oh well, maybe next time. This guy is solarized, his eyes glow orange at night...provided he gets some sunshine of course.

Now I like that one, Mon..that's got some mana..give me full body every time. I think dark is good...it says "old and weathered".

Hi. I'm new here. I've been carving away on my first tiki for a couple of months. I will post a picture of the finished product eventually.

What tools are you guys using to carve with?

Mr. Chevere,
Welcome, bruddah! Everyone probably has his or her own favorite tool. When you are first starting out sometimes it's good to use tools you are most comfortable with and which are easy to control. Of course, there is no replacement for a really good set of wood chisels. Have fun and let the chips fly!

Lake,
Yeah, he was about 66" tall. Sorry, no night pics - I took him to an artshow last weekend and he sold in two hours. But at least I got a photo of him for posterity. The same customers also bought this mailbox holder...

Thanks for the positive feedback ya'll. Collectively you guys are probably the best tiki artists on the planet so I really value your opinions. Hey, anybody know how long it takes for oil stain to wear off human skin?
