I made this for sheepBlue in the Curiosity Cabinet Swap. It's supposed to be an Axolotl wet specimen.

It is hand sewn then painted and varnished. The bottle is a pickle bottle that I painted the top of.

Thanks for looking!

Outstanding piece and a great idea for the theme!  Your fabric amphibian looks realistic I've always loved the feather-like gills on those critters.
