Wallart *Neonfish* by SensiArts Wallart *Neonfish* by SensiArts
A fish is a fish is a fish...

This is, as the name says, a wallart to hang on ... walls. :D

The idea to put the fish on the (fake) wood came late at night while my little one decided not to sleep and I realized the fish is to big for a journal cover.

First I made the fish: it has a aluminium foil base covered with supersculpey. Then I made a skinnerblend and a cane from a Mix of Supersculpey+translucent Premo --> translucent Premo --> Cernit neonblue --> Cernit neongreen --> Cernit neonyellow. The last three colors are fluorescent colors, I wanted to try out. The Neon-Set of the Cernit Brand are very soft but good to handle. Like some colors and kinds of Sculpey they darken a little bit after baking.
Every scale of the fish is handsculpted from slices of the skinnerblend cane. One day I will write an ode to my pasta machine :D The fins were supported while baking because the are very thin. Some very small pieces of them broke during the painting, but thats ok.
I had much clay left from the fish (I still have a piece of the Cane) and played around like I always do with left overs. The pasta machine was smiling at me and said: "Run it through me!! Now!" I did and then there was a very nice pattern of the different fish-colors. :D I put a slice of SuperSculpey under the "wood" to give a little more durability and textured like always when I make fakewood. So..no trees were harmed! :D And the fishies are all ok. :D

After baking I used some acrylic colors to give it an old look.

But it burned a little, so all the Supersculpey-parts are blackish now. It did not break, thats all that counts. :D



Materials: Polymerclay, 3 glass cabochons, eyelets and acrylicpaint

What a gorgeous piece! The blending and the fineness of the work on the fins is superb.

I rolled out a skinner blend once... I thought, I don't need a pasta machine. After that I went out and bought a pasta machine ^^

This is amazing. All the details are so well done.

hehe, thank you :hug:

The pastamachine...i love it and I love to work with. It makes some processes so much easier, so that you can faster go forward with the whole project. It's also good for conditioning the clay!

I found a very good way (for me) to make lovely skinnerblends and its easier than the classical way with sheets of colours. I form my different claycolors to big long teardrops and lay them down with the top beside the bottom from the next color/drop. Hmpf, this is hard to explain for me.  Then I flat this  bulg of teardrops to get a right thickness for the pastamachine. From now on I do the classical way. Folding, rolling through, folding rolling through...and so on. :)

The pasta machine is definitely a good investment! You way to do Skinnerblends sounds interesting. They are so tedious but they look great :)

WOW! That's great. My only quam is that it hangs sideways. I would rather it hang up and down. Looks great! Nice and big too.
