This is a traditional Japanese form of painting
- 1 Bottle of blotting ink
- 1 Fish
- 1 Large piece of art paper or fabric
- This uses the actual fish to leave an impression on your paper or fabric, so catch or obtain a whole fish (we do it with any especially big or special fish caught)
- Wash the fish's natural slime off and cover it in ink
- Roll the fish gently onto the paper or fabric once, you only do one side so start from the top spine and roll down
This is a very delicate way of recording a special fish, please be kind and make sure the fish has been humanely put to sleep and only kill fish you intend to eat!
