On Saturday night after going out for dinner and a movie with friends, Tracie took me to her car and passed off a big grocery bag full of rubber fish. WOW! I was so excited! Tracie teaches 4th grade at an elementary school here in Albany. She is gearing up to change schools so everything had to leave her room. Fish included! A huge thanks to Tracie for such a generous gift!!!!!
Fish printing without the smell or slime will be so much fun and a great project for both kids and adults. Granted, I truly gained much bliss from standing on the banks of Carol’s pond and wish to do so again soon. I already have some interested adults ready to come experience non-fishy fish and I’ll do a test run on my neighbors kids in a couple of weeks when they start to get bored by summer break.
Here are a couple of images of the assorted fish and prints taken using stamp pads to ink up the little devils!

Like this, so glad no live floppy ones, tho that would make interesting prints, if elephants can paint, why not fish?
The rubber ones come dead, so no need to kill them. I’ll have to give them a try one of these days again… when I get time….
