Well I managed to finish a couple of fish today - although I am not sure what I will do with them. I need to make 5 charms for a swap - so I might use one of them towards the five.
They took a long time to paint and I had to leave them for hours and do them in stages
They are looking pale in the photograph.
In reality they are shades of silver, blue, and salmon - all metallic colours blended to show up the scales - and some 'dirty' brown mix of acrylic paint to add a bit of depth and interest to the segments.
