Bride of Cthulhu

I finally finished her!

I made this muse, shortly after seeing Percy Jackson. I call all my decorated faces muses.
I was playing with a combination of Medusa, and tentacles.
What can I say?
I really like making tentacles, they are fun, and squishy, and Im always somewhere between a playful giggle or a wicked cackle when Im working with them.

I had a hard time making the jump from straight polymer to painted and finished polymer. You can see her face pre-patina.

I like the un-patina-ed polymer, but I always love the results when I do finally make that step. It seems to give it extra depth.

I wanted to make big stand up tentacles, but am saving those for a different collar piece. The tentacles here really feel very claw like, and add a tribal feeling to the piece. Im really happy with her.

This is so cool and unique! When I first saw your feet, I thought it was foot jewelry (lol)! I love your Medusa with the tentacles. Always fascinated by the Gorgons. At least I can look at this one and not turn to stone.

Lovely work!

The tentacles look so real, like they are gonna move! I thought you had designed some sandal embellishments! This would look great as a table topper with some candles, on display! Very nice!

her toes were so cute, and I just started putting jewelry on her feet to shoot because nothing was showing very well against the brick
