I made this fish out or polymer clay after a similar drawing of mine but added a moustache. Pretty slick, huh?  Wink

My original thought in this was the idea that all mammals are in a long string of evolutionary process related to fish. This makes me happy to know that we come from these creatures. That as well as others would think that it was rather disturbing, hence Mr. Fish also has a very creepy look about him. I know that if I were fishing and pulled that aboard I would not exactly be thrilled by any means. It is meant to be interesting and disturbing.

This is one of my first attempts at really doing much sculpting with polymer clay, as well as with coloring with it. I would have liked it to be more "Magical" looking and more realistic but am new to this craft and am not necessarily sure about what people do with it to make it that way. It would be good to know what people use to add fine details... what sort of powder I see people using and what gives an Item a finished look. Any interesting tidbits on knowledge would be useful.

Here's a few more different angles of him:

Thanks for looking.

he's pretty awesome and i have to say that the mustache adds a certain level of sophistication Smiley

love to take part in personal swaps, I would love a poppet of my very own, or a doll like the ones made by Poppets & Lace
