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!
- 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!
O.o Oh my goodness! How did you get the little bubbles in the PERFECT SPOT for the shell??? That's amazing!
What type of resin do you use...as in, what brand and usage does it say on the label?
blue rings octopus really nice sculpture!!!!
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)?
cute octopus! <3
beautiful!ur so talented! :3
Wonderful!!! Your talent is just amazing! This is exactly why you are such an inspiration
Your work is so amazing! I just wanna tell ya every time you post anything You make a lot of people happy with your tiny creations!
That octopus is adorable! They would make the cutest little necklaces.
Thank you! Someone on tumblr asked if I could make them into cufflinks. Now I want to do a bunch of octopus jewelry.
oh my.... i think this is my favourite
If it wasn't in a tin, I would have thought it real. the detail is amazing!~
wow,that's really your first time making an octopus??
It is! Took a little bit of poking around at the shape at first but it came together in the end.
Wow! This is awesome!!!
Now I want to try my own things with altoid boxes XD I couldn't do it like you though. I don't work with clay.
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?
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.
DON'T PICK IT UP BLUE RING OCTOPUSES ARE POISONOUS!
Very cute! I really like the bright colors.
