I am really looking forward to the fish in the spring. I also though of using "glass paint" on the insides of the fish. I used it on plexi during a chihuly lesson and the colors are nice and transparent.

In reply to Paige in Fredericksburg
I have taught the 'soda bottle' fish project for the past two years
with my third grade students. Very popular!
We draw our designs with black Sharpie and then color in with gel
markers. We have tried two different brands of gel markers: Crayola gel
FX and Foohy gel markers. The Foohys were much better - I preferred
the colors, they also seemed a little moister than the gel FX. Bad
news: the Foohys were recently discontinued. They still make a metallic
gel marker, but I haven't tried it yet.
I want to try doing a tissue paper/glue collage on plexi. I tried
tissue paper/starch on plexi, but the papers popped off when dry.
