1 Gather materials!
Be sure to find a clear working space. Get your 3D printing pen, strands of plastic, DoodlePad, and a printed copy of the free stencil.
2 Trace shapes A and B.
Using a single color of plastic, trace shape A and shape B on the stencil. As you trace the shape, be sure to fill in the shape vertical and horizontally.
3 Close the shape.
Now, add material to the opening in the shape and gently bend it. Repeat this step on the second shape too.
4 Connect the shapes.
Hold the shapes together along the longest side. Gradually, add filament in a straight line to doodle the shapes together. This will form the base of the fish.
5 Create the fins.
Add material to each side of the fish and gently bend the shape to represent a lateral fin.
6 Trace the tail.
Get the stencil and the DoodlePad. Trace the tail shape using the same technique you did for the sides.
7 Attach the tail.
Remove the tail shape from the stencil and attach it to the end of the fish shape with some more plastic.
8 Fill in the fish.
Now it's time to fill in the fish with additional plastic using a back and forth motion to cover open spaces.
9 Close the bottom.
Flip the fish shape upside down. With additional plastic, close the bottom of the fish using a back and forth motion. Flip the fish right side up and add two eyes with dots of plastic.
10 Time to decorate.
Use a contrasting color of plastic to add pops of color along the front, side, and fins of the fish.
11 Finish the face.
Finally, add a small dot of the same color from the previous step to each eye. The koi fish is done. Repeat all these steps to create a second fish and the pisces symbol will be complete.
Add the koi fish swimming in alternate directions to a frame or wooden circle to create a mixed media pisces design!
