Octopus necklaces

These were made with dough – just flour, salt and water, and then baked.
It’s not as easy to use as fimo etc but a lot cheaper!
I coloured them with ink. Go octopi, go!

Inspired by Alphonse Mucha

 

I was given a beautiful book of Art Nouveau parisian poster art and I’m in love with Mucha’s gorgeous pictures.

These will need a lot of work tidying them up and colouring them in!

octopus purple TIDY

I drew this with a dip pen and purple ink, and coloured it with a wash and drops of turquoise.

I had to tidy this up a lot in GIMP because of the ink bleeding into the paper though – I think this cheap watercolour paper is a false economy! Next payday i shall be visiting a proper art shop.

Ink box

I just got a wooden box to put my inks in, they fit quite neatly considering they’re all different shapes and sizes!

Here’s the octopus I’m working on.
