Got this wounded fish...
200 grams, 20cm long.
Unmarked silver, lacking two fins and his eyes...
First a good cleaning and not harsh polish with a sunshine cloth.
Took a rubbing of remaining fins.
Cut a doubled piece of each from a disposable aluminium cake mold.
Turned the edges with pinch.
Embossed them with a nail art dotting tool.
Curved shape them accordingly to the originals.
Backed with uv curing resin in thick layer for strength.
Patinated with markers and acrylic paint.
Glued them in place with uv curing resin.
Others I saw had green cabochons eyes...
Having none convenient ones, I went for painting white the eyes sockets, then orange and black markers and finaly a drop of Judikins Diamond Glaze.
He can stand again and no more looks as a dead sardin ;-)
