5” x 1.25” H (Surface Area of all paintable sides: ~70 sq. in) Do you know anyone that loves to spend time at the ocean? Do you? Well, then you should try out our Spiny Starfish for your next ceramic painting project! This lovely starfish is designed to look real to life. It conjures up happy family days collecting shells on the beach, and it would be a lovely reminder of warm, happy days in any home! FUN STARFISH FACT: Did you know that although sea stars live underwater and are commonly called "starfish," they are not true fish? They do not have gills, scales, or fins like fish do. Sea stars also move quite differently from fish. While fish propel themselves with their tails, sea stars have tiny tube feet to help them move along. Because they are not classified as fish, scientists prefer to call starfish "sea stars."
