Watercolor painting

The other day, I got bored and decided to practice my water color (since it's my worst medium). Because I had no watercolor paper, I decided to paint on a round of salt dough (which was a little bumpy, since I used rock salt in it ) Here it is ^-^


The disk itself is about 3 1/2-4 inches across. Since it turned out well (well, better than my normal watercolor paintings) and I have been trying to find a way to make money, I was wondering if anyone in their right minds would think of buying one from me (just an interest check, don't know if I'd actually be able to sell them, since I don't know much about shipping.) I'd probably sell them for $2-5 (depending on how complicated the betta's position is) plus shipping, if enough people became interested.

I am no expert on betta fish, so if I give you advice (and I don't say something about my own fish/experience), it's probably from google

I've been taking care of bettas for years, though since I was only about six years old when I got my first one, my experience is VERY limited. I'd be happy to learn from anyone, though, so feel free to PM me with random things about bettas ^.^

It's actually really absoarbant, so it's better than using normal printer paper ^-^

Here's one of Rumplestiltskin that I did today:


Sorry the pics are blurry; the one of him was what I based the watercolor off of, and my camera nearly ran out of batteries by the time I was done with the watercolor.
