I wanted to do "Gyotaku" or Japanese fish printing at a Family
Day for the Wichita Art Museum and asked around at last year's NAEA
conference in San Francisco for input. Several teachers told me about
the rubber fish that Nasco has for Gyotaku and that they were definitely
the best method. Nasco now has six different fish. The five we
purchased last year worked wonderfully--no smell! We printed on black
bulletin board paper with gold, silver, magenta and turquoise printer's
ink (with a foam brayer), then let the students enhance the design with
gold and silver markers. This was very popular and there were some
lovely results.

Enjoy!--Marcia Scurfield, Derby, KS
