3D Effect Aquarium

3D Effect Aquarium

This creative challenge is also ideal for working in teams:
One person is responsible for the background, the others for the fish!

Dip the painting sponge into dark blue paint and dab the cardboard - but not so much that it is completely covered.

Then use white to mix a lighter shade of blue and dab all the empty areas. You can also dab another blue/green shade on top.

Draw a number of fish on white paper. You can use the templates.
Keep the fish shapes simple so that you can cut round them easily!

Fish template

Now colour the fishes by splashing the paint through a sieve using a toothbrush. Cut out the fishes and fix an adhesive foam dot to the back of each one.

Now you can let your fish swim in the sea! Position the fish wherever you want them on the blue background.
