I make fish sculptures sometimes

Just finished these two:







Older betta sculptures:





Non-betta:

Peacock gudgeon


Empire gudgeon


Guppy


I've also made some snail earrings:



These are all made from polymer clay (Sculpey Premo), painted with acrylics, and finished with a glossy varnish. Thanks for looking!

OK, those are just absolutely stunning! Do you sell those anywhere, like Etsy? I do a bit of jewelry making myself (not with clay), but my shop isn't open yet. Wow... I just love your work.

Useless info; when I saw the topic of your thread in the list, for some reason Richard Dreyfuss making Devils Tower with his mashed potatoes popped into my head.

you could make blank resin castings and sell them for people to paint their own ;) I'd buy a bunch. I really want to make some now, too, but of I could skip to the painting part... haha

These are so pretty!

The snail earrings are so cute. I love the gudgeons especially- you could probably make some money selling all of these XD

Nooo, these are so precious!!

The blank resin castings InStitches suggested sounds like a great idea... I'd love to practice my painting. Your painting skills are great though and the color choices are fantastic. So bright and colorful.

Fish based items always make great collections, I always want them.
