OK...So here are the details. The other side of the mug is going to have two crossed tiki torches and a surfboard. The back wall will have the same patterns that are on the front. The Ohana Hut is moving along at a pretty good pace and Stuckie has been puttin' in lots of weekend time to get this into our sweaty little hands. The guy is Awesome!

The Mold is done, finished it over the weekend. I'll be in LA end of this week, as soon as I get back I'll work on making a prototype and posting it on TC.
It'll be at least another month before I actually get to production as I still need to make the Master molds and working molds.

Stuckie, how many parts will the molds for this need? It looks like they'll be too complex for a simple, single silicone mold. Maybe a single for the bottom & a two part mold for the roof would be doable?

Yes, I'd enjoy a "Creating Tiki" thread on the mold making & casting of this mug.

Err.. ummmm. well, the base is a 5 piece mold. 1 piece for each side and one for the bottom. I was able to get away with a 4 piece mold for the roof. 1 for the top, 1 each for the front and back and 1 for the bottom.

I'll try and post pics at some point of the molds.
I'm going to attempt pouring one today, despite the fact the molds are still a bit wet.
The master molds are going to be a task. For the base, it will probably be around 17 pieces, the roof, 8 pieces.

Thank you very much! I was thinking less mold pieces if you were using a flexible silicone mug, but I guess a solid mold will last longer with less deformation of the mold over the life of the mold? It's wonderful to get an idea of how a professional works, we get to see the professional carvers do their thing in "Creating Tiki," but it's only the talented amateurs posting about mug making in there.
