    Pyro_53580000 asked how to create a Jellyfish pattern shell — sharing the answer here so everyone can benefit. If you have another way of creating this kind of effect, reply and show us what you can do!

     

    Example VDL for a Jellyfish pattern shell: 5″ Blue Peony Top Half w/ Sparse Bright Red Gold Palm Bottom Half w/ Silver Ring

     

     

     

    If you want a very tight cluster of stars for the “tentacles”, more like the stem of a mushroom, then you can use the VDL term Ear instead of Bottom Half. Just keep in mind, if you go this route, you’ll have to change the ‘pitch’ of the Ear break to 90° in the effect editor to get the right alignment.

     

    Example VDL for a Mushroom pattern shell: 5″ Blue Peony Top Half w/ Sparse Bright Red Gold Palm Ear w/ Silver Ring (with effect editor ‘pitch’ adjustment)

     

     

     

    Tip: If you want to be able to easily make changes to the effect later, such as changing the size, color, or anything else, it will be easier if you stick with a “pure VDL” effect instead of using the effect editor. Once an effect is customized in the effect editor, the only way to make other changes are to go back into the effect editor.
