Making art.

Based on an artist's rendition of the Gyotaku (fish rubbing) technique, David thought he would give it a try.

Directions:


  • 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!
