20 Sep Tentacular
Did some more finessing of the tentacles on this Octopus piece. Pre-existing holes from the original chandelier were filled, paint was removed, surface polished, pop rivets and washers added as suction cups. I’ve also installed glass doorknobs with LEDs as eyes. Still not sure if I’ll keep the brass rings around the eyes though. They balance the finish of the tentacles nicely, but I want to avoid the “steampunk” goggle look, its bad enough that I’m making an octopus with brass tentacles.
