I am so excited to share my project with you. I painted a fish a few weeks ago and covered it with EnviroTex Lite®. (You can see it here if you missed it)
I thought to myself, hmm.... I wonder if I could sculpt one using Easy Sculpt®?
I did and here is how.
- Easy Sculpt®
- Rubber Gloves-couple pairs
- Teflon Mat
- Styrofoam Balls
- Vegtable oil or Talc Powder
- Acrylic Paint - I used DecoArt Media
- Wood Panel
- Glue-Power Tac
Gather all supplies and cover working area with a non stick mat.
I am showing this to show you what NOT to do! I usally make an armature with foil, I Quickly learned that it doesn't play well with Easy Sculpt®!
The next day I mixed equal amounts of A & B again so that I could attach the side fin. I also added a few more details. I propped up the fin till it was dry.
Gesso the board a the fish, I do this so that the paint has something to stick to.
Paint fish to your liking. Have fun with it!
I lightly sketched out on the board some plants.
Seal with a varnish and enjoy!
I absolutly LOVE how this piece turned out and I hope you enjoyed it also. Any eagle eyes out there? Did you notice that I clipped off the top long fins. I felt it was to much.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today!
