Tinfoil Betta Sculptures

Here are a few sculptures I made for an art class, long before I actually got my first betta! The fish were actually fairly easy to make out of tinfoil and hot glue. The main body was crumpled foil, and the fins were made from rectangles cut and folded into shape. Then I added lots of glitter and sequins for eyes. The background hung in the window of a hall in my school, and the fish also hung on clear fish line so they could turn whenever there was a draft.

These pictures were taken before I finished adding color and glitter. I wish I had taken some pictures of it when it was in direct sunlight! Sadly, I waited too long before picking it up though, and it was thrown away. I really want to make some more of these to hang in my windows someday.

Thanks! I'm really considering making some more, especially now that I know about the different types of bettas. I had no idea what a "crown tail" or "veil tail" was back when I made these! If I can find where I packed my glitter, I might even try to do some commissions. :)
