Fish prints are some of my most favorite. When I learned about Gyotaku, all I wanted to do was fish art. It is quite an experience, and in order to get a good print, be ready for some practice. I remember going through a whole pad of rice paper experimenting again and again. Gyotaku (from Japanese “fish print”) dates back to 1800 and involves using fish or a sea creature (I’ve seen shrimps and star fish) washi paper and sumi ink. In the beginning, it was used to record the fish catch, but then later, it became art. Gyotaku is very popular today and there are many teachers who offer classes to learn this wonderful art. There are fun videos on Youtube as well.
