Once I made four straight tentacles, I proceeded to build the base, which needed to blend seamlessly into the tentacles. After packing on clay to create the mound, I burrowed a hole using the end of a clay tool with a similar diameter. By placing the tentacle end into the hole, I packed clay to fill in the gaps to ensure that the base was secure.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
