    Funny Fish Swap~Due June 26

    Swap Due Date - June 26, 2020
    Signup/Withdraw Date - None - Just communicate!
    Number of cups - 2:2 or 3:3 or 4:4
    Number of Participants - unlimited
    HP/HD or Mixed Media

    Funny Fish Swap

    Funny Fish! Funky Fish!, Foolish Fish! Felonious Fish?

    In this swap you will make your own little school of 2, 3 or 4 fish. They can be any shape: abstract, silly, realistic or imaginary. If you are doing mixed media, please keep them flat.

    Hints:

    Your fish will need to fit in a regular 9X4 business size envelope, bear in mind those fins can get a little overlarge….your fish will need to fit in the envelope.

    Please make your fish side view, that is the head facing left or right.

    This is a no sign up swap.

    Cootie Alert: Covid-19. Please write your AFA user name in large letters on the reverse on the envelope. I will be quarantining mail for 72 hours before opening. I will acknowledge receipt of your fish on the thread they day they arrive, but the ohhs and ahhs will have to wait until I open the envelope after their 72 hour quarantine,

    Postage:

    Your fish should fit inside a regular business sized envelope.. If you are mailing more than 4 fish, please include an extra additional ounce postage stamp. Otherwise include one first class postage stamp and a large address label for your returns. I will provide the return envelopes.

    International players: I will cover your return postage. Got dicy postal service where you are? Let me know and I will hold your returns until they can be mailed.

    Definitely count me in on this "fishing charter" too.
    Are you saying any size? or within what limits exactly?
    I want a whole school to dangle like a mobile over my kitchen sink from a huge driftwood limb.
    Would be super sweet if both sides had art on them.....just sayin fishy-wishy

    SIZE LIMIT: Your fish should fit inside a regular business envelope without bending.

    This one is about 8 inches long. "Catch of the Day"

    Do you have suggestions for bases? Would water color paper or bristol board work?
