My 7th fish

Inkadinkado has a couple of sets of animal hide stamps. I bought the scaly one (rather than the stripy and spotty one) with my Michael's 40% coupon (which was burning a hole in my pocket) to use with this fish stencil. I enlarged the Koi image that I drew for the Twinchie Swap to make the stencils for this fish. I used three stencils this time: the whole shape, the eyes, and the side pectoral fins. It took 7 tries to get this image; while the technique worked well, it took me a while to get the layering of the stencils to look reasonable.

There are a few different scaly stamps in this set; you can expect to see more fish coming soon.
Here's where I first explained about my stencils and stamps:

  1. Hi Florence, I'm posting here rather than further down by your resin buttons because I was afraid you might not see it. Love your resin castings. I do castings for jewelry pendants but I use UTEE, mold n pour and the melting pot. I like the gears you made from the legos. Looks like we have more in common than the Pegasus stamp.
