Here fishy fishy fishy.....

:) A couple of Whimsical Fish designed by L. Kim Braa and published in the Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts magazine.
I took a break from woodworking and made these up. They look real easy, but I'll tell you - getting all of the little dots to be (almost) the same size is tough! And I found that the correct tools help a lot - I made the carved lines too large in the first one I did - which is why you get to see 2!!

They were fun to make and a nice break from the woodworking. I have another one that I designed ready to start dotting -

Nice! I almost bought that issue. I'll have to look at it again. : )

It was fun to make. I like the bright colors she uses. I've got a wood bowl I have almost done that I think I will brighten up with dots too.
