Feeling Crafty?

Saw these things online and thought they were super adorable! Any budding crafters out there up for a challenge then this may be the craft for you

Feel free not to be as technical as the people here, But use your imagination and what you have around you to be inspired by these designs!




I have ordered these three videos for you in terms of product size (smallest to largest) and product difficulty (easiest to hardest)

Anyway, Just thought these were worth sharing and I plan to have a go at it! Have fun

Cool vids, It would be cool to put like one brine shrimp or some other really small shrimp in the last tank.

You... do realise that it's resin right? So the shrimp would suffocate instantly..

I'm planning on starting out with the first one then if all goes swimmingly I will work my way to more advanced versions

Guys, if any of you actually make one, could you post a picture of it here? I would love to see it

If I ever become sufficiently advanced and/or ambitious to make one of these, I’ll be sure to let you know.

UPDATE: Found some cheap clear window silicone as a good alternative which I am picking up tomorrow! You can get a lot in a piping-bottle thing for less than £5 and it will give the water an awesome rubber/jelly texture can't wait to make attempt no.1

Thank you! Yes once I have painted him and made a tiny aquarium for Tyson I will make more tiny fish and tiny aquariums this is just the practice run!

It would be a fun project! I've had to temporarily pause my project as I am busy studying for my gcses (English final exams) but I have made a bunch of plants for Tyson and found a tiny "Aquarium" I can keep him in it's not too hard provided you have the patience and materials!

They are too cute. I have all thumbs though and that would be too hard for me.

That's what tools are for! I had these cheap plastic ones lying around which I used to add the scale texture on the fish and lines on the leaves but you could find some online to help I'm sure! Besides, who said yours had to be tiny? That's just how I do things but you can by all means make an aquarium to scale if you need to

Yeah, you are right. I endlessly crochet and do cross stitch so may just try them one day. Saw posts somewhere on crocheted bettas so may attempt them too.

You could set our a whole day for fish-crafts!! Can we make that a thing on Fishlore? Day of the crafts?
