Default Fish rubbing from a big yellowtail, need to frame it.

Here is a Rubbing from a big yellowtail from a trip from a couple months ago. A friend that was fishing with us made this and now I need to frame it or get it framed. I think she did a pretty good job on them. Any suggestions on framing, glass or no glass?

28" Flag is a nice fish. Congrats !! I've had a few things mounted & framed, a lot of galleries will do it, not cheap but yes glass will help preserve the piece.

Frame with glass. You can order one online, I have purchased a couple custom size frames from My Barnwood frames dot com.

That’s a cool fish print you have. I have a tail from a 500 lb mako we caught this summer on the wall right now.

Great work!!! Gyotaku is a great art!!
Definitely invest in a quality frame with glass....

I had the Pulp fiction movies poster that hung in the Malibu theater framed ..was around $170.00 back then...frame increases the investment

Im looking now into making a frame for it. Frame part is easy enough but im searching for the best way to fasten and what .material to use for the mount board.

The rice paper used for the print needs to be stretched and fastened to the board with glue/adhesive/staples or similar.

It sure is. I like diy projects but this material list is up to $100 already. I like diy projects but I dont want to mess it up. By the time I practice on one ill probably be higher than the cost of having it done.

here’s a video, it’s a very old technique originally used by the Japanese to record their catch.

You could probably find a hippie down there to build a lobster pot frame in keeping with the keys theme.

Gyotaku prints are all over our home my friend taught that and did my fish-frame with glass.
I have albacore salmon and lost of tropical fish from Hawaii.
most prints are on rice paper-just read up on it.
The guys prints are here-his name is Bill Twibell
He was part of a Smithsonion fish print show
