I make a lot of fish prints, aka “gyotaku”, which look like this:
That’s made from a halibut I caught by simply covering it in a non toxic ink called sumi ink and then putting “rice paper” over it to make a print. The paper isn’t actually rice paper, just has a similar texture. This is what I use:
And every time we make some prints we wind up with a ton of extras that don’t get framed. I thought a fun project for those would be to mount some of them outside on a fence I have in my yard.
I’m wondering if anyone has any tips for doing that?
I was considering epoxy, but wondering how to prepare the paper, and what epoxy to use. Also some EV protection would be nice.
Or maybe there’s another material to use? Something like modge podge?
Any other clever ideas?
Thanks for any help!
