Now we’re moving on to our biggest fish in
the sea, and because it’s a big fish, I have a big brush. I have a nice, deep blue here.
What we’re going to be doing, we’re going to paint this in several stages, starting
off with this nice blue coat. I’m going to cover up the whole midsection with a nice,
thick layer of blue here. Where you can see, we’re going to frame it all the way up. If
you start noticing your paint getting thin, see how it’s getting thin back towards here?
Grab some more. We want a nice, solid coat. You have got to have a nice, solid coat before
we can go on any further. So, make sure that you have a nice, solid coat of blue, and we’re
also going to be making the underbelly and doing other touch-ups on the fins, in a lighter,
silvery color. But first, you have to get your blue done. And after your blue’s done,
you’re going to have to wait about a day, and then after that, you can go in here and
start adding in some more silver details, and a few final touch-ups to our marlin. Marlins
are often times confused with different species of swordfish, but they’re not swordfish, actually.
But they’re very graceful and nice, and what’s also good about them, in terms of like a subject
matter, is that they’re big, they’re graceful, they kind of look cool, but they’re not sharks.
Sharks have big teeth, if you haven’t heard, and while some kids would be like, “Oh, isn’t
that awesome!”, other kids won’t even want to bathe and that’s a bad situation for you
and your child.
