Fishy

Here's a little fish on mesh, on its way to Toms River, NJ today. He will become part of a larger mosaic. I'm attached to this little fish and sorry to see him go ... All stained glass except the eye, which was the center of a porcelain saucer, quite thin, so I cut two circles and glued them together with MAC glue, after first scruffing up the finish on the bottom one so they would adhere better. Now the eye is the same height as the stained glass.  The fins are gorgeous iridescent but the picture didn't capture it. I love this little fishy; I call him "Golden Eye."

I can see why you love him. He's a cutie!

Happy weekend.

Thanks, Ramona! I'm thinking of making a similar one and keeping him for myself.
