my fishee is approx 3 inches long.  solid fimo.  i had my first attempt at a cane and i sliced it to make scales.  the eyes were an experiment.  white discs with a hollow with a little black snake in it. then coloured deko-gel in it.
in the baking the side fins fell off and the tail got a bit discoloured so i disguised it with some gold paint - but i really like the result!!  and a little varnish on fishee's body.

Great work!  I love the scales and the gold paint is a wonderful touch - especially the way the light is hitting it in the third snap.

That is incredible! I'm been starting to work with Fimo and Clay! They fascinate me, but i'm not much of a free hand person.

That would be stunning in my tropical fish guest room!

I love the gold fins, they are so shiny. I'm always afraid to make canes since I don't want them to come out crappy but yours look great! Great job on this!
