Framed fish specimens



I don't usually frame my pieces.  Partly that's down to laziness, but it's also hard to get hold of box frames without spending a lot of money.  I can turn a regular frame into a box frame, but that's a pain in the ass.  In this case though, I found a box frame for $5 in a second hand store.  Win!  It had some seashells and suchlike glued inside it, so I scraped those off with a knife and covered the back of the frame in fabric.

This is a fairly sturdy wool fabric, so I could attach the fish to it with a loop of thread at each end.  The thread is very hard to spot. 







In fact you can't really see it at all unless you look for it.  




So there we are.  The fish now have a nice display frame.
