Gold Fish Making

As per request, I shall post different views of the Gold Fish here. I am not very good in giving the step by step narrative on how to make it, so I just dismantle one of the experimental fish and show here. Hope it helps!

Number of red packets used: 7
1 for Belly; 2 for Right & Left Side of the Head; 3 for Tail and 1 to cut 3 fins(from corners).

Size of red packet: 120mm x 80mm, hence measurement of drawing is also in mm.

Head (Front View):

After taping with the belly.

Head (Hind View):

Do not seal the back until you have inserted the tail.


Tail (Top View):

The three parts are taped together. The one in the centre must be slightly higher than those two at the sides.

Tail (Under View):

Tail (Side View):

Notice that the tip to join to the head is cut slightly at an angle? This is to ensure that when you join tail and head together, you can lift the tail at an angle to make it point up.

Gold Fish Belly:

After joining head and tail together.

Gold Fish Hind:

Notice that the tail is lifted up at an angle.

Gold Fish Side:

Gold Fish Front:

Note: For the Belly, Right & Left Sides of Head, there are thin cardboards inside the red packets. Use scotch tape to tape all parts together. For the eyes, just print and paste with glue.
