More fragments of my art

Some of our creative time goes into many small tasks. For me this has included: testing out some different resin; making a single flying Funky Fish; and making leaf forms for different people and purposes.

The resin is to be used for a children's environmental awareness workshop in November. Whilst the resin worked well and fast it failed the toxic fume test as far as I'm concerned.

The Funky Fish looks good on its rough saw block of Hairy Oak and brass rod - it is going to a good home during the week.

And the different leaves for different purposes.

Though there is a degree of repetition in the creations there is also a bit of variety.


  1. the fish is wonderful! resins are tricky. the only one i feel comfortable using is ice resin - but for large products would get very expensive. good luck finding one that meets your needs.

  2. P & MJ - thank you for you comments. P & MJ - the fish has a new home - with R McK now - thought I could offer something to repay her generosity. MJ - I usually use an equivalent of Ice - was testing to see if I could buy a cheaper product as I will need to use about 4l of resin over two days of workshops. Peace to both of you. B

  3. Your funky fish is great! I'm so pleased it has gone to such a good home.
