Koi Fish

I use several techniques to get the lovely koi fish on these bracelets.  The fish are embossed using the Sizzix and then a heat patina was applied with my butane torch.  To reveal the fish under the patina I used an Emory board to sand off just the high spots.  A coat of glaze gives it a nice shine.
One of these is going to a friend, the other will probably be seen at Joplin Artwalk June 20.
