Sunday, June 15th, 2014
12pm & 2pm - Free Demos
Gyotaku, or Japanese Fish Printing, has many possibilities for printmakers and multi media artists. In Japan, the artists add rocks, shells, seaweed and more to create exquisite works. Sherry Lee Duncan has experimented with these prints in the US and in Mexico. She even printed a marlin, as a souvenir for a fisherman to keep of his prize catch.
Sherry will show you how she begins with an unscaled fish and the Japanese rice papers available at Daniel Smith, and uses basics of composition to create beautiful prints using Daniel Smith iridescent acrylics.
