Under the Sea

For reasons known only to my subconscious I began to explore the concept of those lost at sea, and at the same time had the urge to make a present for my fish. Hence, the fish have a new flake holder and I still don't know what my mind was on about.
Either way I am happy with the end result, liquid nails, pink, blue and green fimo molded shapes, a shell, golf tees, gauze bandage, and layers and layers of paint (all applied in washes and blasted with the heat gun) on a tin milk churn. The end result may not be deMeng, but the skills (if I can call them that) were learnt in his class.

I LOVE this, no really, I LOVE this. The colors, the layering, the face, the use of golf tees and shells and OMG it's fantastic. Loving the ocean it resonated to me.
I have so many questions...like where does the liquid nails come in? (used like glue?)
I wish I could have just sat and watched your process.
WOW!
