Groom's Cake with Hand-Painted Fish

One of our Custom Cakes last Saturday was a Groom's Cake with a hand-painted fish on top. The bride provided a photo of a painting the couple loves. The painting featured a brightly colored Tarpon which I used for my inspiration here.
The pic above shows the first stage: a pale blue "canvas". I carved out the scales and other key features then lined those indentations with a dark gray-green. Then comes layers and layers of colors: greens, blues, silver, pinks, yellows..., then some more definition of the lines with gray-green again, and finally, a "glossy" layer to give the look of real fish skin.
