A commission for somebody's OC.
Polymer clay (premo and super sculpey), the purple 'fin' is armatured with an index card stiffened with superglue. Foil and wire internal armature in the body. He is removable from his base, but doesn't stand well on his own.
Future floor polish for that shiny finish.
Holes in base were for customer to add his own grass and dried flowers, per his request.
Sadly, his tail cracked a tiny bit during shipping, but the wire inside was strong enough to hold it together, and a little superglue solved the majority of the issue. And that is a lot of why we armature!!
