Play Day........Fish Printing

The Art Sisters gathered @ the Quilt Palace 

to do some Fish Printing

aka.....Gyotaku Fishing Rubbing

Please Note:

at the end of this post is a video

so you can watch how this is done.

Here is how our Play Day went......Enjoy!

After our resident fish printer, Kathi, gave us a demo...

Nancy jumped right in to give this a try!

We are printing from this Fish today...

Nancy's Fish Print

So much detail on this fish print.

We are using cotton fabric.

We all gave it a try!

This is Kathi out on the Pacific Ocean here in Oregon

After the real fish printing was done...

We cracked open the box of rubber replica fish...

Kathi purchased these from Dick Blick online

A large variety of rubber replicas...

The rubber replicas also print with lots of detail...

Nancy printed fish on a piece of sun print fabric

Nancy also created place mats for fish dinners...

She applies craft paint to a bass replica fish...

You can see the Bass place mat in the center of this image.

These are Nancy's fish prints for the day.

Kathi tried white acrylic paint to see how her fish would 

print on very dark fabrics......they show up quite well.

Kathi printed the rubber frogs.....they print really well.

I printed several rubber fish on a piece of ice dyed fabric.

We plan to teach this as a Permission 2 Play Class:
