These are really cool. Do you sell them or just make them for yourself?

Great tute, thanks so much. I love your tentacles Cheesy

How do you find the Sculpey holds up with those pointy ends? It is the only clay i haev easy access to but I find it is so very fragile and brittle.

I haven't had too much of a problem with it but then again I'm really careful when wearing something like this. For anyone that wants a more sturdier design keep the tentacles wrapped close to your focus bead or marble so there's less of a chance of it getting broken off.

And there's always super glue  Wink

These are fantabulouse, I love octapi? too!
I have a question, are including things like the glass gem in the clay dangerous to put in the Oven? what heat do you bake them at?
I want to try this but I'm afraid I might screw it up or something.

I always use those flat marble things you typically find in a floral section - as far as I know its solid glass and I've never had any issues with them burning or otherwise. I think as long as its solid metal or glass you shouldn't have any issues but if you're still worried you can try just cooking the clay without it embedded and then glue it in afterwards - you would have to keep in mind that you would have to make sure you could get the focal piece in and out without having to move the tentacles since after cooking you wouldn't be able to move it.

Edit: Sorry forgot about the heat question. It depends on what type of clay you use - just follow the directions. I used regular scuply clay and the directions say to bake at 275F I believe.

Hope that helps!  Smiley
