Re: Another gyotaku question

Regular white drawing paper won't mold around the fish very well. I
used a thinner white newsprint type paper. Wish I knew specifically
what kind it was, but it was a leftover from the previous art teacher.

Regular newsprint paper should work, as will tissue paper and some
wrapping paper.

By the way, none of my students offered to swat anyone else with a
fish. Thank heavens! That one made me crack up! Also, I didn't loose
any tails. My lucky day!

I love the real fish recipe and will have to try it. What a hoot for
the kids!
