Hey there! Ya it has been a long time... but I am still here hehe
My Art Doll Marina by the sea has many little bones hanging about her and I have had a lot of comments about her fish bones ;) They are super easy and are made with Creative PaperClay ;)
The other day I sculpted this mama Kittie and her 3 babies using paperclay and had to add something silly to her ;) I figured hey cats like fish so I will make more fish bones :)

Here in her headpiece
and this is how they are made
mini Tutorial :)
you will need
needle and thread
Using Creative Paperclay and an xacto knife cut triangular arrowheads for the head
follow with sequentially smaller chevron like shapes approx 4-5 to follow the larger head triangle
ending with a small chevron to create the tail bone.
let set for a few minutes depending on the temp of your home and how wet the paperclay is, could be 5 minutes or 20
do not let dry out completely ;)
Use a small sewing needle and any hand sewing cotton thread tie a nice knot at the end and sew through the tip of the head
keep adding the bones as you go until you get to the end.
snip the thread leaving a good length to handle the bones by.
I like to add a dot of glue at each bone then I paint with acrylics and coat with a matte sealer ;)
Thats it fish bones!
now go make some bones ;)
