This weeks teapot tuesday is all about fish and fishing. I fiddled around with a gold coloured fish like the teapot but had more success with copper. I can't remember the name of this technique but you stamp the metal with stazon and use a stylus to impress lines into the metal following the ink lines. Then you turn it over and puff out the space between the lines with a paper stump. I painted the copper around the edge and the coral.
