This piece is a direct impression from a small wrasse caught in the Menai Strait in May of 2022. The fish is inked up using an acrylic screen printing ink and then a piece of paper has been skillfully pressed against the surface of the fish. I've repeated this multiple times to create this work. When dry, the print is then wet mounted using the original urauchi method. This is where a second sheet of paper, in this case a Chinese washi is adhered to the back of the print using only a wheat paste which I make myself. The wet print is then left on a flat surface to dry flat.
