I love these, and thank you for putting up a tutorial. I'm ptty new to clay still and have been wanting to try making an octopus but it seemed so intense and this way you get the tentacles without worrying about the rest of the body.
So I made one, I kind of like it, but it's a little too pushed together so learned something for next time. Also, I used a round glass charm, so I wouldn't have to worry about attaching a holding for it. Here's a picture.
It's black and pink but the colors didn't come out very well in the picture.
Again thank you for posting this, it got me over my fear...though for some reason mine looks more like a frog than an octopus haha gotta work on tentacle placement...never thought I would say that haha
