I made these to decorate the upeer wall space of my sushi bathroom. [link]
They are each twelve inch long slats of balsa wood stained with a glossy wood tone. I painted the kanji on with weather resistant paint (think sauna) and then painted the sushi with acrylics. I used my book Samural Sushi as reference and painted directly based on the photos in that book. Check it out, you'll see. Though I am pretty proud of how some of them came out. The english words at the bottom suck though. Should have had better planning on that part.
