My friend lost Jeramiah recently. She spoiled her betta, he lived in a beautiful tank with plants and bubbler, not those tiny bowls some people put them in. He was vibrant, energetic, and great company for her. I made her this to help remember a dear pet, friend, and family member. I tried to color this as best as I could with the pictures she had sent me of him.

Had a few issues with this, the paint tried to crack/smear while I glazed again..I bought some new paints so hopefully it will work out better when I make her a pendant of Jeramiah and Rose, her other betta fish, together. While baking it tried to flop over too, so I had to take it out, adjust it a little, and put it back in the oven. The bottom left picture was before I painted, tried to get as much detail as I could. She loves it, and I'll be sending this to her as soon as I can.

Thank you! She really likes it and keeps it near the tank with her remaining beta.
