Step 1: What You'l Need
Step 2: First Cut
Step 3: 3 Ways to Cuts the Tentacles
1) the jagged tendril jellyfish
2) the subtle curves jellyfish
3) the spiral mess jellyfish(my favourite)
will walk through each type now..
Step 4: The Jagged Tendril Jellyfish
but if you make em too thin, you'l be cutting for a while..
2) fold them outwards so they stick out like a fan..
3)make 3-4 diagonal folds along the tentacle(see third diagram)
4)paint if you like.. jellyfish are generally transparent.. so.. might just look better unpainted. its upto you.
5) looks best when suspended... in a window or somewhere like that.
Step 5: The Subtle Curves Jellyfish
2) it has an interesting effect if you hold it upside down(see pic).. so perhaps you can keep this on your desktop or something. doesn't look too great if suspended though. a friend thought it made for an interesting flower vase.. or could have a small plant planted in the center.. hmm..
3) again paint if you like.
Step 6: The Spiral Mess Jellyfish
2) while cutting it may look like a big confusing mess.. but once done, just make a little fold so that each tendril is bent outwards.. and they'l be less tangled..
3) looks great suspended..looks kind of like a chime..
4) paint if you like.
