.75' Tentacle Gauges by monsterkookies .75' Tentacle Gauges by monsterkookies
This was the first time I have ever created plugs, although I won't be doing them on a regular basis.

These are actually 3/4" gauge plugs. Aren't they neat? They are bright purple tentacles with pink spots and glow in the dark suckers with lime green centres. The glow in the dark is a funny colour to work with... it comes out slightly transparent and milky white-green.

Their diameter is true to 3/4", although the flare was a littttle big so the lady I made them for has to slightly weigh/stretch their ears first. :P But hey, I've never made these things before so I think I did alright! :)

Also, I thought I would mention this... most folks say that gauges cannot be made from polymer clay (for hygenic reasons) but there ARE exceptions to this rule. Polymer Clay plugs should ONLY be worn in HEALED stretched ears, and not be worn overnight. Simple as that. :)

Completely handsculpted from polymer clay.

I don't know - I don't have stretched ears. Someone gave me a drawing, and I made them. They fit them, so they got them in somehow. XD

There is actually no exception to wearing polymer clay in the body for any period of time longer than a few moments. While it's very pretty and well made, the heat from your skin warms the clay and releases toxins which easily leach into your ears and can damage them and break down the skin and tissues over time, healed or not. Not only that, but the clay is also porous and traps dead skin cells, making it virtually impossible to clean even if they are "sealed." Not trying to patronize you, just looking out for everyone's ears.

I made these once as an experimental project and the wearer was well aware of this before I made it for them. Thanks.

one of them does not look it can be put on from the thin end of the tenticle.. and chances are that if you put it on the other way, they will wall out (just helping you better your work) Unless the camera has lied and I'm seeing the small end in a place where it is not. If so can you post more? ^^

The person I made them for had to stretch their ear a tiny bit more before they could fit, but they fit very well. :) I'm not making anymore, though. :P It was just an experiment.

They shouldn't be worn in healed ears either, same as acrylic PLUGS.

Basically, I'll just repeat what I already said before to someone who didn't have anything better to do than to comment on things they disagree with and point me to the same website.

This is the one and only time that I made them, thank-you very much. You'd know that if you went through my gallery. So thanks for the generic rant that I am sure you've copied and pasted about a gazillion times by now. If you're going to bother someone, why don't you make it worthwhile and share your rant with all the folks on Etsy that make a living selling polymer clay plugs? I am well aware of the risks of wearing anything porous with stretched ears, which is why I don't normally make them. This particular person insisted, and I haven't made them since.

I'm not going to search 751 pages on a website just to find a little tidbit on why you don't like polymer clay. Polymer clay carries the same risks to it's craftsman just like practically every other artists medium on the face of the earth - spray paint, glaze, fixatives, acrylic paint, charcoal, epoxy, glues, pastels, resin, polymer clay, etc. It's a risk people take. I live in an old house - I'm sure the lead paint and asbestos will probably aid in eventually killing me, as well. Who cares. Practically everything around us nowadays is killing us slowly.

Totally! Because making one set of plugs out of polymer clay is a lot worse than everything else that is going on in this world. ESPECIALLY war and poverty.

You have totally opened my eyes.

Okay can you please stop with the polymer clay plugs? Have you even done any research into how bad the toxins in polymer clay are for your skin? And the inside of a stretched ear is more sensitive than the outside. It doesn't matter if your ears are completely healed, polymer clay is a big fat no-no!
You can't auto-clave polymer clay, and no alcohol isn't the same. No doubt, even if you wore gloves, they will have your finger prints on them or even the residue from the gloves, which leaves grooves in the clay where bacteria can call home, leading to an infection in the person's ears. The tentacle spots will have so much room for bacteria as well as stretching out the skin unevenly, meaning that they can't wear proper circular plugs afterwards without downsizing first.

Still insist on making shit out of polymer clay?
Then please, head here ----> [link]
And then tell me polymer clay is good.
