Octopus tentacle earrings

I actually made these a couple weeks ago but I haven't had a chance to post them until now. The original earrings I based these off of can be looked at here. I used Fimo and Sculpey clay to make these. The blue is Fimo and the white is Sculpey.



I started by making two thick logs out of the blue for the main part of the earrings.
Then I made a very skinny log out of white and cut it to make the suction cups.



I just lightly pressed the suction cups on, they don't need much pressure to stick on. Then I took one of my dotting tools and used it to make the dimples in the suction cups.
I used clear nail polish as a varnish after I baked it because I didn't have any glaze then.


Thanks for reading!
