This project began with wanting to use a silkscreen in a design.
But I quickly realized that what I REALLY want to do was to sculpt all those twisty turny tentacles.
So you get two options in this video: silkscreened AND sculpted tentacles.
The color blending on the tealight base is done in an unusual, but super easy way. It’s much quicker than making a Skinner blend, and gives different results.
I make a LOT of tutorials for experienced polymer clayers, but decided this one would focus on beginners. This video is full of my favorite tips and tricks. Hope you find them helpful!
If you choose to add a light, be sure to use a battery operated tealight, as an open flame can scorch polymer clay.
