seven hours later...

...aye yes seven hours of painting these little fish, give or take a few hours. i had about three hours break in between to go play squash today. i thought i would have it finished earlier but the pointy ends of the fish required a lot of phaffy painting with a tiny brush. well i could have rushed it but i couldn't bear to paint quickly with a big thick clumsy brush. it will be going in the mail asap. just need to outline it and i ain't sure what with yet-the normal trusty pencil but will it smudge or black fine liner which may blob and run if the box should get rained on in transit or outline it all in black paint which make take forever and a day to do. i think i will do a quick tester tomorrow before deciding. am fair pleased with this pledge, i know it is only day two but i feel i have been so productive!

This will look great when it's finished Ladysnail! Do you have to decide on your 3rd year project during the summer holiday?

Wow Debaroo! That must have taken you aaaaaages! It's looking great. Is there ne such thing as a permanent marker that's a fine liner? I know you can get something like that, but i'm not sure it'll be fine enough for this. I'd say pen would be better than pencil but I know how horrible it is trying not to make a mistake. Be brave Deb's! X
