All of the sad little fish found homes on the desks of my coworkers. (We're educators...which means we're all hoarders. It's hard to throw things out that might be of use in the classroom one day!) Everyone agreed that the fish were not very cute, but they sat proudly on the desks anyway.
This week I decided it was time to intervene. I pocketed the fish from one of my coworkers and took it home, ready to start my attempt to make the fish cute. (Or at least unattractive ironically...)
Elmer's 3D Glitter Paint Pens are going to give the fish some fabulous lips.
And what fish doesn't need some diva like lashes?
I'm ready to start my extreme fish makeover!
A quick coating of spray paint gives me a nice base for using the Painters. (I always spray paint inside a cardboard box-it makes things so easy!)
I decided to use my Elmer's Painters to highlight the textures on the fish.
I painted the lips with the red Painters Marker. I think added the red 3D Glitter Pen to the lips. I used a brush to smooth out the glitter. I trimmed the lashes and applied them using the Craft Krazy Glue. A bamboo skewer was handy for touching up small areas on the fish.
And here's the finished fish! OK, so it's not quite a masterpiece. I think it's hilarious, though. And I have a feeling my other fish adoptive parents might be asking for a little help completing their own makeovers soon!
