Help with outer space theme?
I'm just wondering if anyone has ideas, in particular, on what to do for a fishy hiding spot (cave?). I'm also open to ANY ideas with outer space.
Black Background, with white specs mixed in possibly?
Large Rocks/Texas Holey Rock?
UFO/Alien Decor mixed in places?
i made a background for a tank once with planets. its really easy.
black background, take white spray paint and lightly spatter it so it comes out in little specs. then take a plastic cup, cut the bottom off, set it on the rim down and spray in whatever color(s) you want into the hole on the top of the cup, reds/black, blues/whites seem to work good, but any color works. then with the cup still in place, lightly spray the middle of the outside of the cup so the overspray creates a "halo" around the planet. these easily create your planets. different size circular items/cups make different size planets.
ive attached a picture of a painting i did so you can get an idea. hope its not as confusing at it sounds.
onefish2fish-beyond creative. Wow..That planet effect is very, very cool.
why thank you, bad picture quality though from the camera phone.
onefish2fish: I LOVE it! absolutely beautiful :)
Cody: thank you!
Hmm...I was going to suggest getting Hubble images and blowing them up, printing them out, and laminating them, but onefish2fish's idea pretty much blows that out of the water. Probably a lot cheaper, too.
thank you everyone for the kind words.. if you use my idea or not, i cant wait to see pictures of what you did.
get some thing dome shaped and paint it to look like the moon and use it as a cave
