‘Santa’ made Master D this fishing set for Christmas. He’s had lots of fishing trips since, catching the fishies and putting them in my little old basket 🙂
So, when we came to craft day he asked to make fish. So that’s just what we did 😉 I drew some simple fish on foil, then we put them on an onion bag, rubbing with our fingers to give our fish scales. Master D then coloured his fish using markers and crayons.
|Sorry, hard to capture this well but you get the idea|
We found that the crayons helped keep the scale texture but they don’t have the same shine.
Next we used blue watercolour paint to make our ocean.
|Painting with a brush takes to long?!|
|Rightly concerned by the painting method|
Adding salt to get some texture. Then we released our fish into the water 😉
Thanks to our lovely friend Nay for the great craft book – The Usborne Book of Art projects that gave us this idea!!
Gone fishing, Kelly
