Intro: Sugru Pot Handle Octopus
My friendly local hackspace were having a Sugru evening, the perfect opportunity to replace the handle that broke off a saucepan lid last year, and while I was at it give my saucepan some octopus attitude.
Step 1: Mix Some Sugru
Decide what colour you want your new pot handle to be and mix up some Sugru, I used a pack each of red and blue, and half a pack of white to get a funky purple.
Step 2: Legs
Split the sugru in half, then split one of those halves in 8 and roll them out tapering the ends down. Arrange the legs around the pot lid in a snazzy manner.
Step 3: Body
Roll the remaining Sugru into an egg shape and cover the screw for the pot handle. Smooth the body and the legs together.
Step 4: Eyes (optional)
Use a bit of white and a smidge of black sugro to add eyes to the octopus. Now he can watch you while you cook.
Step 5: Cure
Leave the Sugru 24 hours to cure completely, then you are ready to get cooking.
