I have long admired Deme*tyoubi’s felted goldfish art, and even commissioned a custom-made goldfish a couple of years ago. This year I decided to up the ante and commission another piece in a bigger size!
This time I commissioned Hikaru to create a 10-inch-long felted replica of my favorite fish, my male panda butterfly telescope named Clyde. Clyde used to have striking panda coloration, but he has since lost all the black markings and is now red and white.
The photos I provided to the artist are of him about a year ago, when he still had his black markings. Hikaru recreated his markings perfectly, and even attached glitter fabric scales in a few places, since Clyde has a few scales that are more shiny than the rest.
Deme*tyoubi also makes small felted goldfish keychains in a wide variety of goldfish types. She agreed to send me three for free so that I could give them away to you! Please click on the video above for the full giveaway rules and information.
