Here is my second project for the DecoArt 'Under the Sea' mixed media challenge. Freddie the Ferocious Fish!
It started with a shampoo bottle!
A coat of black gesso then once dry a coat of black modelling paste with bits of card stick into it and textured with a pallet knife.
Painted with a mixture of phthalo turquoise and tinting base
I used paper clay to make a fishy mouth.
Dry brushed with Neon Green.
Used a damp brush to then paint Fuchsia Metallic Lustre into the center of the scales. That was easier than it sounds as I just splodged it on!
Notice anything different about the fins???
By that point I was being influence by the Rio Olympics, thoughts of carnival etc. So I changed the colours of the fins and added sequins and glitter - had to be done!!!!
Took a stalk from a manikin doll kit. I put Freddie onto the stem to see how high up I needed to decorate the base as I knew quite a bit would be hidden inside the fish.
