  • Mobile eyes
  • Shape punching machines
  • Permanent markers
  • Straws
  • Skewer style wooden sticks

Procedure for making fish for an aquarium

  • To start you need two circles of eva rubber, mine are 6 cm in diameter.
  • If you don't have a circular object that size, you can use a compass.
  • Cut out the circles and put them one on top of the other.
  • Split for a little more than half and you will have the head of the fish.

  • Take one of the small pieces that we just cut out and put it as you see in the photo.
  • Draw a kind of heart that will be the fish's tail.
  • You need two equal pieces.
  • Now prepare 3 straws of the colors that you like the most.
  • Cut them in half.

  • Gently insert the straws into the skewer stick.
  • Leave a separation of about half a centimeter between one and the other.
  • Now put the head and tail on top and cut off the remaining piece of stick.

  • Once the pieces are glued on one side, turn it over and do the same from behind.
  • In the queue I'm going to do some details with gold marker.

  • A heart It will be the mouth, I have made it in red eva rubber.
  • Once the mouth is glued, I will put my eye on it.
  • Do not forget that you have to do it on both sides the same.
  • Make the details in the mouth with permanent markers.

  • To finish the fish we only have trim the body with some shape and voila.
  • You can make all the models you want using different colors.
