Okay…onto the final phase of this project.
I hung Sammie outside to add two coats of clear sealant. Sammie seems quite happy hanging out on our patio.
Just too cute for words.
After the sealant dried, Sammie came back inside so I could attach the sunglasses and the bling necklace (yet another madri gras bead strand). I used the Beacon 3-and-1 clear glue to attach the glasses at the nose and the end of the ear pieces. For the bling, I glued it at the top of the fish. Later I added another plastic pearl to the front of the glasses on the nose ridge to cover the gap.
A better view of the glasses and bling. Once the glued dried, the glasses and bling are on pretty strong. Sammies is turning into a real cutie.
Remember in the first part where I showed the supplies and mentioned the fluffy stuff? Well here’s where it comes into the project. I wanted it to look like Sammie was flying above water spray. I put glue on the bottom of the three fins and tail, stretched out the fluffy stuff a bit and then attach it to the glued areas.
Another view of Sammie.
