Siamese Fighter Fish Picture

Yesterday I gave sewing a rest and fetched out my paint. 

I wanted to make something with my betta fish on and not being an artist decided this was the easiest way for me to create a picture.

Using this photo of Scaramanga I produced an outline of him. I traced around the photo, coloured it in on the PC then printed out a copy.

I removed the glass from a picture frame (this one was £3 from Matalan), placed it over the image and traced the outline using a permanent ink pen.

Using acrylic paints I began to fill in the drawing. This photo is of the first coat of paint. It took three coats to cover properly but it didn't take long for the coats of paint to dry.

I then cut some patterned card to place inside the picture frame.
