My attempt at a clay betta



Polymer clay and acyclic paint with some nail polish on top for the sparkly scales. My first attempts were sadly burned in the oven but with this guy I tried some new techniques and I managed now to burn it up. lol

When I hold it up to Teodor's tank he flares at it so I guess that is a good compliment.

Maybe I will open commissions for these only I had a limited supply of paint so they would all be the colors of the clay used.

Definitely following. That would be a great memento for people to have of their bettas. If you ever decide to sale any for people, lmk. I would love to have one of each of my guys. I have mementos of all of my other pets throughout my life. But that's too cool.

I made another, this one an orange double tail male.


I'm not terribly attached to this one and would be willing to trade or sell. The white powder on it is flour that it was baked in and should rinse right of with some brushing from an old toothbrush. Due to my lacking in paint I cannot paint it for you unless you want it pure white, black, or a clear coat over the clay.
