BUt would it be possible to do the Huts or some of the huts in Brown or tan instead of green?

I mean I'll take a green if that's all there is, But I think the other colors would be more natural looking.
my 2 cents

(whoooosh) that was me ducking someone throwing a shoe at me.

I agree with Jeff. Brown or tan is preferable to my eyes. Just leave the Shecky part green.

I also agree - it truly is a fantastic drinking vessel - I think that it deserves more detailed painting. I'm not suggesting photo-realism - just some artful nuances of Tiki Mug colors. It's a large piece , I think it could use some increased definition and wow factor! It will definitely be the most talked about piece in any Tiki Mug collection!!!! Nice Job to all involved!

What if the mug is sold exclusively through Tikicentral (althought, its ok that TC is open to the public) and we would get our TC name on the bottom. Example, if I went to sell my mug of Ebay, it would have teaKEY on the bottom.

No doubt that would be cool. But also consider:
A) Cost to manufacturer possibly hundreds of ultra detailed handpainted tiki huts! I want to buy this thing without selling a bloody kidney! Its already gonna cost me 25% more than you US guys cause of exchange rate, then I have to add postage to the other side of the world! If the item is to celebrate TC and its community, wouldnt making it financially viable for more members be a better option than only the rich tiki ohana getting a look in? Perhaps the option of a green hut for us on limited incomes and a fully painted/detailed hut option for those with more cash?
A) TC is green!If we have one color, that jungle green reflects TC better than anything else.

My 2 cents worth.

STAND UP! and embrace your GREENNESS!!!

Wikipedia reference:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Bein' Green" is a popular song performed by Kermit the Frog (voice of Jim Henson) on Sesame Street in 1972, then performed on The Muppet Show. It was written by Joe Raposo.

"It's not easy being green" is a phrase which appears in pop culture as an expression of melancholy. In the song, Kermit begins by lamenting his green colouration, claiming that green "blends in with so many ordinary things". The song is associated with problems with identity, and failure of individuality. It can also be interpreted in terms of social alienation, and more specifically, the inequalities created by race. Green has connotations of naivety and jealousy, and descriptions of green have ranged from "high praise to pure disgust", but these ideas are not represented in the song. By the end of the song, Kermit recalls positive associations with the colour green, and concludes by accepting and embracing his greenness.

Now there...there...doesn't that make it all better!?!?

Color mine 'Eazy G', Stuckie!!! SsweeetT!

I know its kind of late for some input, but maybe to accomodate everyones interest, Maybe glaze the roof in a tan/brown color and the hut green, only because they are 2 different pieces .It's just an idea, and I only know a few people here on tikicentral, but that would seem to be the easiest way??

Question: How do you get 1000 different people to agree on the same thing?

It's green because green is the main tiki central color. My concept was for it to reflect TC and the member's interest. The color was part of my entry and I think it should be green. Stuckie stepped up and added tan highlights and detail which I like and think added much more to the overall design. Personally, I am stoked with the colors and the way the mug looks and costs. Stuckie brought a concept to life and it looks EXACTLY the way I envisioned it. If Hanford and Stuckie want to change or add colors I am totally cool with it. But for the record, it was designed to be green.

If Hanford and Stuckie want to take this a step further, I am more than willing to create a print or hand paint mugs. It's their call but rest assured, it will cost $$$. Sorry folks, my landlord could care less about any of this and still expects to get paid with money not mana.
