I know I know… It’s another fish… But I love fish! This guy is about 12 inches long with a hook on the back for hanging. I need to reposition the second hanger because it’s a little too close to the back of the dorsal fin.
I used my regular old collage technique with filigree and glass bead embellishments. It took 2 days to make and is now hanging on my wall. I looove it!













In progress:









And the best part? The fins, lips and tail glow in the dark!! Hope you can see these ones.

I love the way you blend the color in the individual swirls.  Brilliant!

Thanks everyone! *blush* I'm super pleased with all the details even though I was pretty much cross eyed when I was done.  Cheesy
