Beautiful work! Wish I still lived in SJC so I could stop over and see them in person.

Last a lot longer too.

Those are really fantastic! Great work

Very cool. Is there a process to getting a sculpt-able consistency to the mortar, or is it straight out of the tub?

C

Mortar out of the bag , it is all timing. Slowly build as it is setting up. It take me 6 to 7 hours to build, then sanding and filing to sharpen up detail and then stain . 18 to 20 hours total each . made tiny concrete tools . been at it 15 years

Found old post in tiki carving on page 13. photos have been changed some are out of order but shows some of my work. Aloha
