In pursuing the octopus design, there were three main components I would need to create: (1) the tentacles, (2) the base, and (3) the suckers. I began by making the tentacles through a series of rolling and raking the clay into a spear form. In preparation for the next project (silicone mold casting of this model), I only made 4 tentacles which would be casted twice in order to create a reflected image adding up to 8 tentacles.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
