This little guy has been done for some time now I finally got around to taking pics of him. He is sculpted from polymer clay and the fins are made from liquid polymer clay.

Nice!
How big is the fish? Do the fins break easily?

Thanks

The fish is about 3 in long from head to tail and about 2 1/2 in from dorsal to pelvic fins. The fins don't break at all since they are made from liquid clay, they are quite rubbery.

Very nice! A great idea to use liquid polyclay. Did you bake the fins and then attach them?
