So even tho I've had this account forever, I'm pretty sure I've never actually posted anything I've made. See, my computer died for ages...and when I finally had the money to get a new one I never actually made anything post-worthy.

Well, friends, that changes today.

Meet Kenneth the Koi, my first ever sculpey project.

I made each scale individually....

I loves him...I hope you do too!! Cheesy

Good job!  How big is it btw? ...You should definitely do more with your polymer clay.

(Might want to use a stronger clay though if you used original Sculpey, and take your "photos" on a scanner if you don't have a closeup function on your camera--just lay even a 3-D object face down on the scanner bed, cover with a dark cloth, and amazingly the image will look quite good and be in perfect focus on the front side.)

P.S.  Once you've posted enough times (even a simple comment on here or on other boards will qualify), be sure and post the actual pics here instead of the links --you'll probably get more views  Grin)

Despite the blur, he looks great.

I love koi, and I think you nailed the colours and textures perfectly. Smiley

This has only got 2 comments!?  Well, Im number 3 and I love your koi!!!!!  You did a really good job.  I just got some clay in a swap, so, ive been looking through this board for ideas on what to make.  I looooove your koi, but it looks really hard.  I dare not attempt it.  But ooohhhh its something i wanna try once I get more advanced in the clay field.

_In search of Simply Knitting magazines with Alan Dart patterns.  If you have any I'll swap ya for them!

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

that's fantastic! I admire your patience to make every scale! I'm working on a dragon, and it's looking like i'm going to have to do that on it, i can't think of another way! That's a long way off though. Smiley
