The fish can be caught by the guest, or I can provide one. I can meet at the dock, marina, or the Mt. Pleasant Pier. The fish will be dried, painted with black acrylic paint, and printed by the guest while I guide them through it. The fish will be delicately pressed, and printed on rice paper.
I have been fish printing for over a year, and painting since I was a young adult. Fish printing is an 1800s Japanese tradition used to record and commemorate a fisherman’s catch while still being able to utilize the fish for its meat afterward. We capture an image of their size, shape, surface texture, and delicate scale patterns on fabric with black acrylic paint. You can join in on painting the fish, and learn a great technique to preserve them while still being to utilize them. Facebook and Instagram: Local Fish Printing.
