The Neverending Story Fiber Optic Pot Head

I thought I would blog about this because I hadn't seen the film until I got asked to do a custom pot head for a fan of The Neverending Story. I really loved the film it was so magical and it will certainly be added to the Strawberry Anarchy Quirky Film List. I loved the illuminated castle and I was so pleased that I could try out a new idea I had thought of a while back which was to add fiber optics to a pothead, It went really well with the castle theme because of the glowing look of the castle. I actually added in Fiber Optics before I cooked my creation and they melted. I was so stressed and worried that they would burn and ruin the whole thing after about 8 hours work! Luckily they did melt but didn't turn brown and only looked like clear beads. Once the pothead was cooked I managed to add in fiber optics afterwards and it worked much better than I previously planned which was a huge relief. I found sculpting this one a challenge because the dog and the snake sign were very realistic compared to some of my previous creations I really enjoyed it though. It's up for "make of the month" on the Hobby Craft facebook page so if you like it please press the like button here.
