Metal Fish Art

Jim Wallace

Smells like low tide.
From metal shop in 8th grade. First part of the project was making a metal tracing tool, so that we could produce a tracing of an image on a copper sheet. This trout is approx 6" x 8" and is usually mounted on a piece of mahogany, and hung on my wall. For some reason, the tail section came out green in my scan. But I almost like it better this way than the entire thing in regular tarnished copper. Maybe its crossing through a current seam into another dimension. I forget where I found this image....maybe from an illustration in a 1964 Outdoor Life mag.
I liked it, and it was an easy image to trace for my first project. Pretty simple

If i recall correctly ...a leather pad a sheet of copper and burnishers...always liked the feel of pressing copper sheeting...played with it a long time ago...the result certainly was not this nice, nor as relevant.

Heck no, but I'm pretty sure they already had pin up girls.
I was only 12 years old. Girls really weren't on my mind at that age. I was into swimming and fishing. Went swimming in Kitsap lake in April. Like to have froze my balls off. Jumped in and jumped right back out. It was a long cold walk back home. At least the sun was shining.
