A friend who likes to fish realized there was something missing in between reeling in the catch and placing it in a frying pan...
Based on an artist's rendition of the Gyotaku (fish rubbing) technique, David thought he would give it a try.
- Lay fish flat
- Use clay to prop up various parts of the fish to highlight as many details as possible
- Spread soy based, natural ink throroughly on exposed side of fish
- Place rice paper or other lightweight paper over the fish and rub it with hands to try to pick up all the markings of the fish
- Carefully remove paper
Instant art as well as an instant record of your latest catch or your latest Chinatown purchase!
