Introduction: Fossil Print Making
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.
Step 2: Enjoy Your Dinner
Eat it except bones.
Step 3: Wash It
Put the bones into the water with a little Dish Soap to wash the oil and residue.
Step 4: Clean It
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.
Step 7: Use Glue
Find a perfect size wood board and add fish bones on it by glue.
Step 8: Color It
Color it with your favorite print paints.
Don't use too much.
Step 9: Printing Time!
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!
