Congratulations on the progress of both your mugs and your little 'tiki'. I love how both are a surprise when they come out, you don't really know what they will look like!

HMC

Glad to see you here again and glad to see you gave us the pics. I am not sure but maybe the two mugs pictured are the ones I am the proud recipient of. They certainly look like the one I posted on OOGA MOOGA.

Thank you so much for our exchange and I am glad to see you posting again.

Very interesting topic. I enjoyed all the photos and the "play-by-play" descriptions.
I have always been interested in trying to make (and sell) a line of Tiki mugs....but, wow, super labor intensive.
Whatever an artist gets for their Tiki mugs it is not enough!!!

My 'other' creation has been finished! It was supposed to be ready 1 week earlier and when it eventually 'came out', it was well and truly cooked

Here is our joint effort - little tiki "Xavier James McLean"...



Next on the to-do-list is to create little shirts for him using my tiki fabric purchased from Samoa mid this year:

I just recently saw some little Hawain shirts. I bet if you look around you could find one. But if you know how to make one, I wouldn't even think to do that.

HMC,

Congradulations on your beautiful addition and a huge 'thank you' on such an eye opening thread. I have begun to make a master or two;)

This will be fun.

Much positive Mana to you and yours. Mahalo

This is such an awesome thread! It is exactly what I needed to move ahead to the far away future production of my own mug.
Congrats on your new arrival.

Spend most time on this area as if it isn't done neatly, there will be a noticeable part line down your mug.




I love this thread. I have a question though.. why do you build up the bottom with clay? Couldnˇ¦t you just pour in plaster, let it set, flip it over and pour in the other half (with a bit more care perhaps )? Or will bubbles and air pockets play tricks with you if you do like that?

Any way, thanks for a fantastic thread. Iˇ¦m looking forward to see the DIY Tiki Mug explosion now that everybody knows how to create ceramics.

G'day, Sorry for late reply - just popped in to catch up on everything!

You can't just pour in, as oppsed to building up the clay because you need to add key points to lock the 2 parts together. Check the steps after the photo you have posted above for more info.

PS: I have already noticed many new mugs in the forum!
