Japanese Fish Prints

On Wednesday evening the SBAA general meeting was held and there was a demo given by Chris Taylor. Chris gave a demo of gyotaku, which is traditional Japanese fish printing. Here is a link to Chris' website ; www.cataylor.com. After the demo she allowed us to give it a try. Here are my prints.

  5. Since I just couldn't stand touching these things, I expect not something I'd try. That said, I am assuming you are using real fish and frogs? But I do like the prints!

  6. These are really interesting Joan, I think this sort of thing has a lot of potential. It's inspired me to "think outside the box" a bit. Nice work!!
