There he is. Hanging on my wall. Graphics fairy had a new fish print on her blog which I just love! Not too detailed but detailed enough to be so cute (Yes, maybe my definition of cuteness is not agreed with everyone ^^).
His new place is next to my white board and the orange / red little octopus. The octopus had to put of the reach of my cats because they loved him too much ;)
I printed him out as big as it was possible with DinA4 and glued him on cardboard. Afterwards I just cut him out.
I used a black laquer pen to paint all the edges in dark black and also overpainted some printed lines to get a darker colour. The only other touch I added was silver artistic water colour. It is a little bit difficult to see on the pictures but the shimmer is really cool and "fishy"!
You see the silver and the darkened lines?
The back I also painted black, this time just with the water colours.
I glued three layers of foamed rubber together and to the back on the fish. With a poster glue stripe I put it on my wall (it is sooooo light!). You could also use a pin or a nail.
The play of light and shadows creates the effect I love of things hanging on my evergrowing picture wall!
