Dot, dot, a dollop of dolphin?
(Apologies to Daisy Sour Cream!)
This little green guy is the sibling to the pink doodle dolphin, only instead of doodles he got polka dots! Well, technically just ‘dots’ since they are in a random pattern and not lined up nice and neat. But he’s the kind of sea life that tail-splashes your silly rules… so polka dots it is. 😉
He has a basecoat of Spring Green and then dots in white and literally (figuratively) every color of green I had in my paint hoard! Once again the fantasy pattern mimics the real life Bottlenose dolphins, but you’d be hard pressed to get a marine biologist to sign off on it.
The handsome little porpoise impersonator is sealed with Liquitex Gloss to give him that ocean shine. It’s pretty durable, but he’s cut out for life on land and not the sea. Or the sink. (Alas.)
The wooden dolphin cutout is roughly 4 inches long and about 2.5 inches high and has a strip of flat ceramic magnet on the back. The magnet holds up to three sheets of printer paper, per my highly scientific method of ‘open and close the door quickly and see if it falls off.’
Finished off in several layers of gloss sealer on the front and matte on the back, this little magnet is water-resistant, not water-proof. You can wipe it off with a damp sponge, but don’t let it go for a swim!
The ArtMinds Wooden Dolphins are made from plywood and are roughly 4 inches long by 2.25 inches high. They have one strip of flat magnet on the back that will hold them securely in place on the fridge.
