For makoeyes 's birthday!

They're about 5 1/2" - 6" long/wide, sealed with Modge Podge and glitter and have magnets attached to 3 different points on their back. They have beads for eyes.

I really wanted to do some Bettas, and with Mako's b-day coming up, I was like, YES PERFECT. These were quite the learning experience and really gave me a run for my money. Also, some history... I was sorta drunkish when I was sculpting the purple one, and I REEEEEEALLY think it shows... Then I started the body of the blue one that same evening, then the next day I came back and finished him and the green one. Honestly, the blue one is my favorite... so clearly I just need to be half-drunk when I sculpt :P. I think I went overboard on the green one. But they're all still so pretty~

Glittery Sculpey III and Sculpey Premo, painted with acrylic paints.

Side note: Male turkeys are exactly like male betta fish. They flare and say, OOH, yes, admire me. Turkeys just make more noise... Ugh. The females are kind of alike, too, they're smarter and have brighter personalities, I think. :3
