Fish Stand by SmallCreationsByMel Fish Stand by SmallCreationsByMel
Update: Changed the picture because it was a better quality one XD

Here's how I made the ice effect:


------

Made this miniature seafood stand for :iconsemi-sweeties:'s monthly food challenge. The top of the table measures 3" x 3" and the whole stand is about 1.5" tall.

Check out my Tumblr for more detailed/close up shots if you want!

Thanks for viewing! Hope you guys like :heart:

I saw it, and knew it wasn't real, but the more I kept looking at it, I forgot it was fake. I'm sitting there, then it hits me.

OH my gosh, this is fake! That ice is amazing!
