1 Fish, 2 Fish – Check out my blue fish…

I was teaching a 5th grade science unit on salmon and got a bee in my bonnet and created a couple fish for fun.  I used cardboard for the base, took some caulking and “drew” my lines and when they dried I painted over it with acrylic paint.  Last but not least, the shiny topcoat to make the colors pop.
