Made this for my friend’s upcoming birthday. She loves Bioshock, so I thought this gift would be appropriate :)
I decided to make the Undertow Vigor because it looked challenging and fun. I started with a glass bottle purchased at a local craft store and painted it blue. From there, I molded polymer clay on the bottle and baked the entire thing. I painted the octopus initially with acrylic silver paint, than created an ‘antique’ look with a darker silver. Then I drew the octopus symbol with marker and painted it. Finally (after I sculpted the cork topper as well) I covered it all in paint varnish to seal the colors.
Materials used: FolkArt Acrylic Metallic Silver, True Blue, Sunflower and Black paints, Sculpey III white clay, Copic Black sketch marker, and a square-shaped glass bottle.
