I cut out the shape of the fish onto a white poster board and then pasted colored tissue paper onto fish shapes in different colors with Mod Podge. Mod Podge is a water based sealer or glue, I selected the Gloss-Lustre because of the shine. I did this first step to save time. It takes a day to dry.

The students then got an assortment of tissue papers and a little bit of Reynolds wrap for detail and they cut and arranged patterns and shapes onto fish, when they were ready to glue they used the Mod Podge with a paint brush to anchor the image and some of them added a tail.
