Faux Wood Butterflyfish by FauxHead Faux Wood Butterflyfish by FauxHead
Here is another entry in my animal pendant series. I take all my photos of polymer clay pieces outside because the natural light is better than artificial lighting. The weather didn't cooperate last weekend so my butterflyfish was a little late getting posted.

All my polymer clay art is available for purchase at www.etsy.com/shop/fauxhead
