-         # 3 tip
-         Matches/mats/towel/glass cutter/long nail/tweezers

Fish (6 mm rod or encased rod & colors):
      Remember:  Hot glass looks the same as cold glass!!  Don't burn the top of your bench, put your hot glass on the ceramic mats. 
     DO ALL YOUR WORK OUTSIDE THE FLAME!!!!  Use the flame to soften your glass.  Keep your glass rotating in the flame, for even heating.

-         Make a maria and smash it (ice sickle technique).
o       You can use colorless rod with color fused in the  rod.
-         Pull off one of the handles to form the lower part of the tail.
-         Add the upper half of the tail with the rod you just pulled off.
-         Finish adding the rest of the fins with this rod.
-         Add eyes with a solid color.
-         Using your tweezers to hold the fish, remove the other handle to form a snout.
