Amazing! I'm a major octopus fan (marine biologist with octopus tattoos and the like), so I'm definitely going to give this a try. Thanks for the tutorial, you crafty lady!

These are beautiful but propbably a bit too hard for a clay virgin to attempt! (knowing me I will still give it a try though) ....Showing what a newbie I am - do you buy the clay (I think thats what you said you were using - my mind is like a seive) coloured or do you paint/colour it yourself?

I used the colored sculpey clay, although recently I have bought a brick of white clay with the intention of painting it, though I haven't tried that yet.

That is really neat. I might try making tentacles for the bottom of an art doll I'm making.

My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

I thought the suckers were beads. I'm even more impressed now that I know you made them yourself.
