Commission: Octopus Altoids Smalls Tin by Bon-AppetEats Commission: Octopus Altoids Smalls Tin by Bon-AppetEats

Altoids Tin Commission for Mokiemorty.

This was my first time sculpting an octopus. I really love how this tin turned out. I will definitely have to add more octopi into other ocean tins!

Details:

  • Coral and Octopus were hand sculpted from polymer clay.
  • The shells are real miniature sea shells.
  • White sand was used for the substrate.
  • The water is clear resin.
  • Commissions for tins are closed while I prepare for the Lakeland Miniature Show, SuperCon, MetroCon, and Tampa Comic Con. They will reopen again in August, though I plan to list some tins on eBay soon!

How did you get the little bubbles in there? they give the whole piece an even more realistic feel. :)

The bubbles just showed up on their own. If they're not too big I leave them.

You know what would look really cute in a mini pond? A turtle or a crab. It would be awesome to see you do one.

I've made some with turtles. I plan on making a sea turtle one at some point. And I do have a tin with a lobster I'll be posting soon. Crab will happen sooner or later. :)

I love how it turned out! I'm hoping to commission you when you open up again! Quick question- how much would you charge for this one (just for a rough estimate)?

I'm curious: Is there anyway to poke the bubbles to pop them with a needle or needle tool? Or would that just make the surface badly textured?
Reply
:iconbon-appeteats:
Bon-AppetEats Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
By the time I see them, the resin is hardened to the point that even if I put a hole in the bubble, it'd still be there.
