Pufferfish

So, I like pufferfish, and thought it would be fun to try and make a picture of one… so, here it is!

P1050824smallThe background is made from silky chiffony fabric so that it would fold and ripple to look like the sea. Each spike on the fish has maybe 3 or 4 different layers of coloured fabric, so this picture is really 3D (I couldn’t even come close to putting glass in the frame!). And when the light shines, the bubbles glitter, as they’re filled with iridescent fibres.

Here’s a close up of some spikes:P1060489small

I can’t remember how long this took to make, apart from that it was a long time!

Anyway, I’ll leave you with this…puffer fish
