Fish Parchment and Leather Swatches

A sampler of all the fish I've made parchment from.

From top: mackerel, sea bass, lane snapper, haddock, Arctic char, Atlantic salmon.
Underbellies are lighter than tops.

Note: except for the mackerel, the skins are highly translucent.


And below, examples of commercially available tanned fish skins.
See here for more.
From the top: eel, suede trout, glazed salmon, suede salmon, glazed carp.
