Treasure

nicethymeSeptember 1, 2014

is what I think this will be called. It started off as an ocean theme bottle challenge and as usual - I got started and then didn't finish so I recently picked it up again,as a diversion from the bigger window project.

I used paper and tape to form the shapes and coated it in apoxie sculpt.

so all along I've been thinking that these 2 broken Fenton baskets could be good octopi suckers

then I started looking at getting more legs on there

so this is where I'm at now, added eyes, reshaped the head and added a tilt to the bottle.

Oh my gosh. This already looks crazy good. I LOVE the octopus' eyeballs! Can't wait to see how this turns out, I love the idea of using the Fenton glass for the suckers, very creative.
