Sorry I mis-typed. I meant to type Carve On (not carve one). Hope I didn't offend.

I know, this one is taking forever, but today I was able to apply the initial coats of stain; golden pecan for the grass shirt and mask, maple for skin tone, and jacobean for the hair and sandels. The next step will be to paint on some color, and possibly add a nose bone. I'm also trying to figure out how to put some real-looking eyes in the eye holes of the mask. I'm open to suggestions on that one.

Way to go Raffer! The multi-color stain job looks super so far. I'm thinking about the eyes...if something comes to me I'll PM you. Great job and thanks for posting an update.

The Headhunter is already asking when the party is. I told him it's getting a little cold for even a grass skirt-wearing madman. I hope he understands. Besides, he still needs some detailing. Thanks guys!

Very cool. The multicolor stain works real well on him.

As far as the eyes, try hitting up a tile shop for some offcuts. A glass based tile might give a really good effect. Otherwise the tried and true shell inlay?

Honestly that guy is my favorite of all time. It will take quite a while for something better to come along. I haven't been here in awhile and these shots really made it worth while to check back. Thanks for sharing the pics and our creativity.

The headhunter just exudes personality! I like the mask, grass skirt and sandals on the tiki.

This guy's cool, Raffertiki... I like the grass skirt. He reminds me of one of those natives who showed up on Gilligan's Island from time to time!

Your headhunter is fantikitastic! I love the mask's expression and all the colors you've used - definitely one of my all-time faves!
