Starfish....


also known as *sea stars* are not really fish despite the name that's been given to them. They're echinoderms and can be found abundant in deep blue seas as well as shallow waters. I prefer to acquire them at local shops as I wouldn't dream of snatching one from its aquatic home.

Because of their darker shade, I typically add a wash of white paint to the horned starfish.

I love them for the seaside flare they give to any resting place in my home (to which there are many)
