Amazon Prime Day always gets me. Always. I impulse buy some of the oddest things. This year, I could not resist a set of fifty 4x4 wooden squares. Once I got them, I had no idea what to do with them so I decided I would wood burn on them. Well, that didn’t happen. Turns out I am terrified of burning down my house or injuring my cats so I doubt I will ever get that tool out. So, I changed up my idea and thought I’d paint on them.
I chose fish again because it is the only thing that I can paint and be happy with. Fish it is! This time, I went with goldfish and used gold metallic paint to add some sparkle. I really liked the shimmer.
Sorry, I just realized how fuzzy this shot is.
Here they are individually. My favorite was this little guy.
You can see the shimmer in this pic.
I did three. I plan on hanging them up in my living room somehow, but I wanted to make them look modular or, I don’t know how to explain it, like they could swim from one panel to the next. Here are a couple of configurations I came up with. I painted some of the wooden squares pitch black to go with these.
I am still not sure if I like the fatty fish yet. He’s growing on me though.
Thanks for checking them out. Any advice/opinions on displaying them would be appreciated!
