Once upon a time, I bought a large rubber goldfish.  Said goldfish was in a clear plastic clam shell.  The fish in the clear plastic had a lot of detail visible, so I got the idea to save it and use it...somehow.  I few months ago, I decided that one of the themes in the kitchen would be fish, so when the clear plastic clam shell with the goldfish in it re-surfaced, I decided to cast a goldfish in paper clay, and paint it to add as a decoration in the kitchen.  It was sure hard to wait the 4 days for the clay to dry!  BUt I'm happy with the way it turned out, and I have plans on making several more.  I'm going to make a unicorn one next Grin





I'm going to add more paint between the eyes as I like how it looks more realistic that way, but I wanted to get it posted while I was thinking about it.  Grin

It's nifty, but why all the eyes?

It's rare that I don't add lots of eyes to thinks.  The more the merrier in my brain.  It reminds me of Blinky the 3 eyed fish from the Simpsons Grin

 Cheesy Those of us who know Suereal's work just take for granted that there will be either one big eye or as many as will fit!
