I would want to keep the flame away from them!
Glad you got the images figured out. They look great.

Thanks! I carve the originals out of wax using standard wood chisels. Then, I make silicon molds of the originals. The original carving gets pretty trashed when I cut open the mold. I have my battle worn originals in a place of honor in my tiki bar! I have a "crier" that pours tears when the wax burns down to his eyes. I'll post that next...he looks very cool when lit. I'll take some pics of lit tikis too!

The current lineup in blacklight green! I've discontinued making the end ones candles. They do not burn well....they are now tiki soaps!

The middle guy, "the wincer" is about 6" tall...
the one to his left, "the crier", pours tears of wax down his eyes. This one is based on one I got in Hawaii in 1977 and have never been able to find again. Went back in '96 on my honeymoon and couldn't find a tiki candle anywhere...so I carved and poured my own! By the way Benzart, I am VERY honored that you dig my work!
