I can’t believe I never made an anglerfish before!
I love them and I’m so afraid of both the dark and the deep ocean that anything that has its own light source down there is my hero,
Glad I had this pretty oval hoop and some black felt to hand when I thought of it.
I feel like this is a theme I could work on a bit, experimenting with different ways to express the depth, darkness and pressure of the ocean.
As well as the luminosity of the fish!
I used some pale blue glitter thread, DMC Light Effects, around the fish’s light tentacle. Even though it is a pure absolute fucksicle to use!! It is worth the hassle in small, small amounts.
We are all under a lot of pressure, in the dark, this last year and a half. I am so grateful for my work and my Patrons, whose support has allowed me to keep making my own light.
