Wouldn’t you know it, I won another of those raffles at the miniatures meeting, meaning I had to come up with the prize for today’s drawing. I have always loved the odd breeds of goldfish, bless their little mutant hearts, and thought I’d try to go really small. Meet Steve the telescope goldfish!
The bowl is a glass bead, the plant is a twig covered in green flocking, and the fish and rocks are polymer clay. A goldfish needs to be able to strut his stuff and I gave Steve a little extra sparkle with iridescent paint. A scattering of sand on the bottom, aquarium decor in place, and it was time for filling the bowl with resin, I mean water…
Unfortunately, the resin got all bubbly and Steve might get gas bubble disease from the extra O2, but at least he can breathe now. And he’s found a nice new home where he can sit on his pebble and watch his tiny world go by.
