Step 1: So, how to weave a fish out of a dropper? Very simple. For a start, you will need two droppers.
For the base of the fish, you must take two tubes, the length of which is thirty-five centimeters.
Step 2: We take one of the tubes and cut it from two sides – on one side into eight strips ten centimeters long, and on the other into four strips of fifteen centimeters. Then cut the second tube in the same way.
Step 3: We will immediately make a small eye for the fish, which, when weaving, already takes into account its size. For the eye, you need a tube fifty centimeters long and a small tube three centimeters for eyelashes, as well as a ring with a dropper, which regulate the frequency of drops.
Step 4: Cut the tubules along the entire length, on a small tube make a fringe, which will be cilia. Put the cilia on the base, and then twist a long tube around this base, note that the cut tube twists a little, and you need to wind it up so that the sections of the strip are bent outwards, and not to the center of the eye.
Step 5: Now back directly to the fish itself. Take a long tube from the second dropper and cut it along the entire length. Then take those two tubes that were previously prepared for the base.
Wrap two tubes with a strip several times to fix them, and then weave a figure eight – that is, you first wrap one tube, then the other.
Step 6: Then you continue the weaving with the figure eight – you wind one tube, then another.
Step 7: Next, overlap the two tubules of the base, while taking into account the size of the eye. Direct both tubules toward the tail and make a few more turns with a strip of eight to secure these tubular fins.
Step 8: Now insert into the body of the eyes. If necessary, make a few more scales to secure it.
Step 9: At the request, you can also make a crown by cutting it out of the dropper part.
Step 10: After that, it remains to crown your fish. The shape of her torso, if that can be slightly adjusted by hand.
Then curl her fins and tail with scissors. And finally, to bring a gloss, take the paint and make your beauty a real goldfish.
Make a fish out of a dropper with your own hands is very simple, and most importantly – interesting. In addition, maybe she will fulfill your desires for trying so hard to do it?
And crafts can be made from other available materials: old videotapes, corks from plastic bottles.
