Your seamonkey shakers are to die for! I have a friend who told me she was just starting to collect the Hear/See/Speak no Evil characters and when I showed her YOURS she nearly fainted! You may have to get the rights to copy and distribute these guys in the future!

Thank you all for your kind words - I think the people who hang out in the "Other Crafts" section of TC are the BEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD!!!!


Are you familiar with Gyotaku?

The ancient Japanese art of using an inked fish to print on rice paper.

I decided to try CLAY-taku I picked up a dead Tilapia at the market and rolled a slab of clay over it. Here it is, appropriately laying on old newspaper

It didn't pick up as much detail from the scales as I had hoped, we'll see what it does.

Wow - that form of art was SO popular in the '80s and '90s around here - I remember I couldn't go to any professional building or medical office without finding one of those prints! Always thought it was rather creative though - so is your little fish! Nice try though - maybe there's a fish out there with more prominent scales, etc.? Good luck!

I officially did not know Japanese artists did that. That's actually extremely clever!

Mike - genius as always!

Back in my FX days we worked on the movie called The Relic, and I had to fill a "museum specimen room" set with thousands of dead animals in jars. A friend of mine and I molded a wide and exiting array of real dead animals, then cast zillions of urethane copies for the set. During the Month Of Smelling Bad (as it later became known), I often thought of trying some gyotaku prints with the weird critters we had - a rattlesnake gyotaku print would be cool! Unfortunately, all our specimens were soaked in toxic preservatives, and I handled them as little as possible. We did get a GREAT mold off of an octopus, and I have a cast of that little fellow on my studio wall.

Can't wait to see the glazed fish - I bet a nice oxide rub would make the detail pop!
