most great designs can be overcome by creative sculptors! have fun with the designs and I recommend not to limit yourself. Undercuts & negative draft are realities though - don't do designs where the molds can't be pulled off at a 90 degree angle off of the sides (for example, a nose where the tip of the nose has an area underneath it where it recesses upwards... think about it in 90 degree pull terms).

You answered before I could! But I'd like to add that, although fewer mold parts makes it easier and the molds cast longer, you can have an infinite number of undercuts. Just depends on how much work you want to put into it. I have one mold I made which has 6 plugs inside the main mold parts. Of course, it's showing some pretty serious wear these days....

Unkle reminds me of a hairless zombie mug.



Yeah I was looking through one of my books last night to show my sister in law a mug and I saw that zombie mug. Dang I thought I was original. Oh well back to the drawing board.

Wow! So many ZAZZ designs! PJ - I love Shekina - our very own Venus! I've never seen you, Hanford, but Lemoai is a hoot!!!

Keep those great designs coming...the judges will definitely have their work cut out for them.

i can imagine that shekina would feel very comfy in the hand... she gets my (not to be tabulated) vote frankly my wife w.k. has started to amass a tidy little "female" tiki mug collection (wahines, tiki goddess etc.) and this would be an excellent addition...

I must say, so far all the entries are very impressive!
I do have one question. I have jotted down a few ideas for my other two designs, but I was wanting to know this:

I was looking at the Munktiki website and all of the mugs are "smooth" and "cartoonish" (I'm trying my best not to compare them to Shag-style). Do we need to fit those specs or go hog wild on detail?

If this is a question that cannot be awnsered, I appoligise.

Dont worry about conforming to our design style. Go hog wild, though I may regret saying that in the end.

One thing to think about though.... the detail and technicality of a design directly relate to its cost to produce. A super detailed piece may result in a higher cost mug.

Oh, in that case, I choose Johnny Dollar's design.

I have to admit that I like the spiked skulls on the back of Rantiki's submission.

My first entry. A human figure in a grass skirt and masquean inspired mask, holding their tiki mug (shecky perhaps?) close. Shirt could be a bowling style shirt, traditional hibiscus pattern Hawaiian shirt, or my fave, the TC background Hawaiian shirt. The mask could be given a stone or wood style effect. The side shot needs more depth to it, but thats my crappy quick sketch.

Foamy, Probably the best mug that I seen. Wow This mug is the mug that people ten years from now are going to pay 1000s for. (inflation) You have great ideas and your drawing skills are top notch too. I think that I would pick your mug over any that I will throw into the ring. I think that they just keep getting better. As soon as I see a winner the next one comes out.
