Hi Clarita- You do some beautiful work!

Wow - the translucency really brings your design to life. Beautiful work Clarita!
This thread is a shining beacon of what good Poly Pop tikis should look like. Not only original in conception and crisp in execution, but also the challenge of the material...using the basic building unit of the tiki bar itself. The latest one is a stunner Clarita!

This girl always blows me away . She comes up with some crazy completely original designs . They are simple yet intricate . And then she dares you to burn them . I love it , Ray Clarita , you are truly amazing and one of the most talented and underrated artists out there . I fell in love with your work the minute I saw it . You have a fresh new look at things like Paipo. I get many compliments on my candle collection . But I just tell everyone that I made them . hahaha

Must say, that I salute your designs for the uniqueness. There is nothing comparable to this.
I like the tiki-o-billy the most, that is exactly my style.

Clarita, awesome tikis, love the last bamboo guy, I carved bamboo once and cut my hand, it's really hard to carve right. So kudos for such a nice one, deep cuts too... amazing!!
