Somethin’ Fishy (Heads or Tails)

July 1st, 2011 by Nikki Smith

Though maybe I should have called this piece “Living in a Fishbowl…”

Somethin' Fishy (heads)

This home is a tribute to those who have lost homes due to flooding.  It uses two of my favorite techniques, printing digital imagery on tissue paper (not as hard as you might think!) and ice resin paper which creates the coolest translucent effect!   An inner support was built out of a transparency sheet cut and hinged to shape.  A child’s toy fish is on the roof for a finishing touch.

This is one of my entries in the Cloth Paper Scissors “Home Sweet Home” challenge.

Somethin' Fishy (tails)


Confession: OK, it’s my daughter’s fish toy.  What’s the craziest thing you’ve swiped for an art project?  Leave a comment and let me know!

UPDATE:  This piece was published in the Nov/Dec 2011 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors!  🙂

    Congrats on making it to the finals too! You did see the missing “fourth column” on CPS blog? I was shocked when I did not see your name, but I read through the comments and saw that one of the columns was not visible and voila! There you were. Congrats and looking forward to what they are going to do with all the houses!
