Look around, look around.



The sun is up, the sky is blue, it's beautiful and so are you?

Thank you everyone for the props.
Now some answers...

The minimugs are made of polymer clay, as are all my tikis.

I don't know how regularly I can produce these because they are quite labor-intensive. At least not full sets like this.
I may do individual mugs special-order only.
I kinda just wanted to see how they'd be received.
I'd appreciate feedback. Think I should devote more time to these?

P.S. Still time to get tacky Halloween tikis from purplejadetiki.com!

Cute mini mugs!

You need to get molds made of them so you don't have to remake them all.

Yes, SES is right. Molds need to be made of these so you can sell them in great numbers. As I understand it, it's not too difficult a process.

I have a friend here who is gonna help me out with it. If you like, I'll let you know what I have learned once I see the process first hand.

These mini mugs need to reach as many TC'ers as possible.

Are those tikis on the cards available? I'd love to have a Tiki Manger Scene with the 3 Wise Moais & shepards with Mr. Bali-Ha'i heads...
