My 2nd one. Its 2 3/4 in long. The fins aren't quite as yellow in person. I had planned on making it solid orange, but it had a few small dark specks imbedded in the clay, so I covered them with black paint  Undecided.

I keep it next to the fish tank, my goldfish seems to like it. I left it on my dresser after taking pictures of it and when I brought it back to put next to the tank my goldfish was really excited. Tongue

This is my fist one. Its 2 in long.  It kind of just happened, I didn't really know what to do with a piece of scrap wire and epoxy, but I covered it with some pearl clay and started sculpting. I was happily surprised when it turned out to be a portrait of my goldfish  Cheesy, though I am still a bit disappointed that the fins curled Sad. Its still not finished, I havent sculpted the eyes or the mouth yet.

It's this a real fish?
coz it really looks like a real one.

We see the throns of the others, but we cannot see the log of timber in our eyes.

i agree, the curled fins really add alot to the realism

i have a very large fancy (at least 6 inches head to the tip of her tail) and this is really spot on with how their fins move

i think im back....9 months almost to the day but i miss art, and i missed you guys!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?
