Here is a quick peek at how those fish are made. A flat fish is cut out using a template, then it is scored on the fins and body for some detail. The fins are ruffled, the eye is added and tissue or newspaper is put under the fish to give it form. After the fish has hardened to the point of being what is called "leather hard" a piece of clay with some holes in it is added to the back so that you can put a wire loop through it so it will hang on the wall. But notice the boom box on the table. I usually listen to books on tape, but while I was working on these, I was listening to George Thoroughgood and the Delaware Destroyers, LOUD!
