2021 Cat’N Around Catskill – Cat #1
“Under the Sea” by Karen Robinson
Sponsored by: Frank Guido’s Port of Call
Description: This cat is adorned with various under sea creatures, including an octopus, sea horse, sail fish, and sea turtle. Some schools of fish can be seen swimming beneath the waves. I used cardboard, tin foil, and masking tape to form the whale’s tale, then covered the form with epoxy clay. Acrylic paints were used to bring the scene to life, with metallic paint accents to create the shimmering feel of the underwater creatures.
