Microbeads and fish prints!!!

For years I have been doing gyotaku fish printing during the summer when I can get out in the yard and play without the smell of the fish taking over. I used to live for the perfect pure print...they are fara nd few between so I had a stack of less than perfect prints that I decide to play with.  I am adding microbeads and really loving the effects.  This is a close up of the beads around the eye of Bandit.  Shimmer was perfect except for color so i used the beads to add a shimmer of blue across her back....lovely.  Check out the new fish in the printmaking gallery.
