I've had this fish cut out for some time, but just got around to finally fusing it last night.  I wasn't sure how or what I wanted to fuse it too, so I kept putting it off. I finally just grabbed a piece of transparent dark green glass, put it on top and put some of my bits and pieces on with it and fired it.

Awesome!  The background works perfectly, makes the bones and the pebbles surrounding really pop!  RAmen to that!

I like the pieces around it. Kind of like the sea floor below and the water above! And that fish is just badass!

Thanks everyone. I guess it came out better than I thought it would since I wasn't sure what to put it on to fuse it. Cheesy  I played around with other colors from my stash of bits and pieces and then decided to go with just the two colors rather than a bunch of them. I like doing patterned things like this, which can be seen from my past postings on here.  It's finding patterns that are not to detail or intricate that is the hard part. I keep looking though.
