DIY: Octopus/Kraken Jar

I’ve wanted to make this one for so, so long! Ever since I saw Pirates of the Caribbean:At World’s End I’ve wanted to make a Kraken jar, and I’ve finally made one!

“All you need is clay, netting a jar and some sculpting tools”

To be fair you don’t need the sculpting took, though they do help a lot, a spoon will also work pretty well. Now I know an Octopus only has eight tentacles but I’m going to cheat a little and give this little fellow a few more legs to be proud of.

Hope you like the tutorial :)

    It’s awesome! I need to collect a few jars and the materials and then i’m going to make your Smaug and Kraken jars! Where do you get these great idea’s? ;)

    Wow! This so cool, I’m definitely going to try this, and this works out too because I have some clay that I didn’t know what to do with. :)

    This is so creatively thought of and so pretty, I love it! (one of my favorite diy by you so far)

    Wow! When you posted the picture of the Jar it seemed so difficult! But I watched the video it seems simple! I try to do it but I don’t think that it’ll be wonderful like yours.

    I wondered if you could give us more explanation of the lazy nails thing and how nail wraps work.

    It looks amazing! I thought it would be too dark when you used the black paint. But it doens’t even look that dark.
