Well folks, here we are mid-September, production on both of the new mugs is still going as fast as possible, but flaws and cracks during the final processes are still slowing things down. At this point I'm hoping to have a shipment of mugs sent to me next month, October. In the meantime while the crew at Lunacy FX continue working hard to iron out those issues and toiling away to have enough "perfect" mugs ready for the first shipment, here's more current photos from the production floor..

Due to mugs breaking and cracking, or having flaws that can be reglazed, or others that had to be restarted from scratch, there's mugs shown in various stages. The most sad and brutal photos below are the cracked pins that were literally 1 final step away from being 100% finished (applying the red bowling pin stripes), but 5 cracked from the most recent firing and now have to be completely redone - such a bummer.

Other photos show a large batch of the bowling balls getting sprayed with chameleon paint and prismatic clear top coats. Enjoy the photos, and as always I really appreciate everyone's patience. We'll get there, and it'll be so worth the long wait! Will post again early October, and hope this time we have a bunch to ship! -KK
