Fish

I was asked to help put a personalised menu together this week for a good friend of mine. She is having a celebration dinner at a local seafood restaurant and I made some little fish to decorate her menu with. I came up with four little fish to chose from, two of them created with hand carved rubber stamps, and the other two were watercoloured. Both types used white acrylic ink over the top for detail. The final menu is being printed on heavy textured ivory card. Quite pleased to have finished another job. Even though it was a small one.fish I must admit the text of the menu wouldn’t have been my first choice, but sometimes when you are asked to do something, you have to please the client, even if they are a friend you don’t always have the final say. But It is a learning curve and learning I certainly am doing at the moment. I did carve the stamps for the title though ‘MENU’.
