Cthulhu Medallion by Maylar Cthulhu Medallion by Maylar
Here comes something from the Cthulhu Mythos...creature of the space and ocean, the Cthulhu itself :)

I missed playing with polymer clay, so this is a product of that. Friend reminded me on Cthulhu the other day and I thought: "Why not a medallion?"

I wanted it to look rough, like it belongs to some other times, so there's cuts and imperfections here and there, to add to the feel. On the end, all was covered with metallic paint.

Ignore the string, I was actually using it for drying and somehow realized I took the photos with it only upon opening them in PS :roll:

Also, sorry for the background...it's my bed sheets, actually :blushes: I wish something better is there, but health keeps me pretty much in bed these days, so I was forced to do the photos there (actually, the whole medallion was made in bed (minus baking, lol);) ).

It's available on my Etsy: SOLD

Hope you like it ^^

Ten out of ten for effort and invention under trying circumstances. I dare not favour it as I have the other half of *aegiandyad to consider, and we don't want the Hounds of Tindalos set on us, do we? Have a llama, anyway, while you nerve yourself up to peruse this inducement to visit our gallery: [link] .

Wow, great one, I faved it instantly...feel is just...perfectly creepy and horrid, I love it.
Glad you like this, fav or no fav (completely understanding the reasons ;)), thanks so much :D
As for the Hounds...well, I'm all for the risks and you gave me an idea, so there might be a Hound appearing around here soon, if I manage to angle the time properly ;)

Wow! Cthulhu looks like Paul, the Octopus that is foreseeing all the World Cup games =D

I think Paul is a Spawn of Cthulhu =D

Haha, so many people told me this when seeing it, I'm considering changing the title into a "Paul Medallion"...

And, you know, I think you're maybe right ;)

Wow, looks great! I love those tentacles, they look like they are moving. I don't know this technique, que only thing I've made medallions with is tin.

Hehe (excuse me Cthulhu for my heresy XD), you sure it's not a Paul Octopus Medallion instead ;)? He's so popular these days lol

Haha, no, it's not Paul, but resembles me on him too :D

Glad you like this, technique is actually just plain polymer clay (like fimo and similar) shaping and baking, usual way, covered with metallic paint on the end. :)

Holy CRAP! That is awesome.

How long did it take you to do that one? The detail work is amazing- especially considering it's size. (sure, I have lots of detail in most of my- but I work BIG)

Actually, drying was longest, as this paint demands drying time measurable in days :roll:...but shaping and baking altogether took few hours :)
