Soppy animal couple - a perfect anniversary gift!
This went a bit wrong for me as my frame was plastic but if you can find a metal one it should be okay! It makes for a cute animal themed anniversary present.

  • Step 1

    Take your purple clay and make the octopus head (just a flat circle), then roll out the 8 legs and flatten them.
    Do the same with the green clay

  • Step 2

    Stick the heads on the corners and add the legs underneath the heads.

  • Step 3

    Weave the legs around the frame as desired, I made little curly details with them. Make sure to leave space at the top for the heart

  • Step 4

    Make the heart and attach it by wrapping the legs around.

  • Step 5

    Add the eyes and mouths

  • Step 6

    Cook in oven according to clay instructions. Your frame has to be metal or it will melt! This is what happened to me!

  • Step 7

    When it's cooled, varnish it and voila, it's done!

You should sell these! So I can buy one. Because mine would turn out horribly.
