Octopod update…..

The octopod is on its way to becoming a fully fledged octopus once I get his body dried out and somehow attach it to the tentacles.  Looking at images of these creatures I’ve got some work to do making bulging eyes before I attempt the joining of the two parts.  I’ve photographed him on the resist I used for the body to show the amount of shrinkage involved.  Having spent longer than usual on the felting and fulling its resulted in the thickest, toughest piece of felt I have made so far.
