I have about 5 minutes before I have to leave to pick up the kids from school but wanted to get this up before I go, just finished it and I'm real pleased (I'd posted last night for opinions on coloring the octopus)

So just to update a little - it's made with crayola model magic and the only 'tool' I used is a toothpick.  It took about 30 hours in total to make.










more details and images on my blog - http://cohesivechaos.com/2009/09/octopus-lamp/

Opinions greatly appreciated!

Love it. Love it. Love it.

I'm not a big octopus, underwater, sea person but this totally rocks. It's all sorts of amazing.

Beautifully done.

Thank you Smiley The most impressive thing is probably the materials lol.  It's made from crayola model magic. I love that stuff it's so fun to work with (but I've also been working with it since it came out in the early 90's)

You are a goddess, this is amazing. It actually looks like the entire thing is underwater, not to mention it being extremely realistic. I can't believe that you did this with model magic! I hope you have some 'in progress shots on your blog.'

yeah I'm working on getting some in progress shots up I've been trying to get in the practice of taking lots of photos as I work to make it a 'habit' rather than an afterthought.  The only other thing I used aside from my hands to sculpt it was a toothpick. Now I need to work out what to do with the remaining clay in the bag I opened so I don't waste it Smiley
