Design DIY: Fish Scale ArtAuthor:Rachel Amy Shahvar
Although this isn’t the fastest project we’ve ever shown, you could cut down on labor by making a mini version – it would looks just as chic on a smaller scale! And if you don’t have a circle cutter you could trace and cut the circles by hand (although it would take longer). Big thanks to two thirty-five designs for letting us share her project!
Gold spray paint
Decorative wood trim
Determine how many circles you will need to cover your MDF board. The board in this example required 687 circles, but the exact number will vary by size of your board and size of your circles. Once you know how many you need, cut out your circles.
Mark your MDF board with parallel lines to act as your template, and begin to staple your circles in rows. Make sure to overlap and offset each row creating a “scale” effect.
Trim the sides and staple your wood trim to the board.
Cover the entire piece with gold spray paint. Let dry, and enjoy!
