Shark
« on: February 02, 2015, 12:01:00 PM »
At Twist and Shout Martin showed me his entry for the three minute competition which was a shark, I was rather taken with this and made a few variations until we ended up with picture two.

This is Martin's shark,

Thelma made a comment about not liking the shark I made at Blackpool, this is the one. So I decided to play about with shark designs this afternoon.
Not sure I have gotten anywhere yet though.

So I was having another play today, the same design just with added teeth. I like the look with out teeth but is uses two raisin twists so not practical for the real world.
