I believe that's a hexapus.
Looks good, though.

How durable is the Sculpey glaze? I heard somewhere that it becomes sticky or peels off.

Amazing tutorial! I followed all your steps and used the same materials but for some reason after glazing all 7 of my cute little octopus cracked. Any ideas why or what I can do differently?

Hi I'm sorry to bother you but what kind of glaze do you use to coat it? (Also sorry if this has been asked before!)

It's made out of Sculpey, an oven bake clay. :3 i use it now, and i love sculpey. it's very easy to use, won't air-dry, and it only hardens when baked~

I made your octopus with some clay Boy Scout people gave us. I'll have to look into Sculpey!

XD lol. I'm not the owner of the octopus tutorial, I'm just an artist who just happens to know clay~ and i's kind of cheap. you can get a 20 ounce package at micheal's for $2.49, or a 1lbs. for $9.99.

Oborochan, may I ask what gauge of wire you use? I'd also like to know how they hold up with the wires an everything. I'm going to start making my own charms soon for a project and to sell myself, so if you have any pointers I'd love to hear them!

Hi Oborochann I was wondering how thick is the wire? The picture in part 11 is kind of cut off, it's kinda hard to read what gauge it is...
Thank you so much for the tutorial, keep making cute ^.^

Oborochann Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
I like 22 gauge but sometimes you can only find 20 gauge and that works fine too
