Have you carved any Tiki Ice Sculpures? That would be something I'd like to see pictures of.
What tools do you use for Ice Sculpures? I'd assume a chainsaw for roughing out large pieces then chisels, gouges & an ice pick for the finer details. These're the same tools used by most of the carvers on this board (less the ice pick, though). You'd just have to add sanding, burning, & staining/varnishing to your skills, and I'd think they're the least important of the needed skills. I think being able to choose a good design, lay it out, rough it out & add details are much more important.
Never carved any tiki ice, although, I would love to try it. I've carved mostly animals and grecian pillars, birdbaths, etc.
The tools I use are probably not the best.
I use a large macheti type knife for the rough work, smaller knives and a dremel for detail.
