Evert year our friends host a tiki party, and I make the prizes. Prizes are for best tiki drink, appetizer and attire.
This year I went with Hibiscus Flowers, at least I hope they look like hibiscus flowers. I used 2 inch copper pipe, annealed and shaped. (cut, flattened and cut again) and miscellaneous steel stuff. Then I played around with patinas. I was trying for red on one of them, but finally gave it up, and went with flame coloring the copper one. Should have got the colors deeper, as you lose a lot when clear coating.
I also did an outrigger canoe, which was a commission from last years tiki prize.
