This photo manipulation is different, I'm not sure how the drops were formed to create fish and birds, but I think it's a cool idea. The wavy lines of the ink inside also looks like waves, giving an ocean effect.
Idea: Make this image inside glass salt and pepper shakers.print image w/inkjet pinter onto clear plastic sheeting. Cut piece width of salt shaker but shorter than the neck + width of tabs for gluin (Diy Necklace Bottle)
a selection of different coloured inks, a medicine dropper or pipette, a fish tank or a large glass container a large piece of white paper or a soft box a strong light a camera with manual focus manually operated flash.
