Let's print with true bones!

Step 1: Buy a Whole Fish and Cook It

Buy a whole fish from supermarket. Remember the fish has bones inside!

Cook it as your favorite way. I like fried one.

After...about 3 hours or any time you like, pick the bones up and put it on a plate.

Step 5: Dry It

Find a place to let it dry. Well, I don't think dryer is a better choice.

Step 6: Arrange It

I think the head it too thick to print. So I cut a half of it.

Find a good size paper and print the wood board.

I don't have machine to print so I just use my hands.

The fossil print will be better if you push more press.

OK, it's time to make your own fossil print and share with me!
