 Thanks  guys,
 
 Sevrumkid,  It  is  a  long  process  which  takes  atleast  4-5  days  to  get  it  done  and  atlest  a  week  to  cure.  
 
 If  you  really  interested,  I  can  guide  you  step  by  step  when  you  doing  it.  It  is  a  process  too  long  to  explain  here.   Thumb Up  
 
 Attached  below  are  a  few  steps  to  outline  how  its  done  over  a  period  of  5  days.

 Wow!  I  have  seen  insects  undergoing  this  process,  which  is  quite  simple  unlike  this.
 
 Thats  a  job  for  a  patient  guy,  I  can  imagine  how  stinky  the  process  can  be.  
 
 And  yes,  your  fishes  are  turning  a  bit  more  colorful  than  they  actually  are.

 Great  work  Marc.  Patience  does  not  complete  the  list...creative  skills,  painting  skills  and  what  not  Smile  Fantastic.  Reminds  me  of  RK  Narayan's  "The  man-eater  of  Malgudi"

 Thanks  for  the  appreciation  guys.  Din  expect  so  many  appreciations.  Very Happy  
 
 Hamza,  it  sure  is  messy  and  stinky.  I  am  lucky  to  have  an  encouragin  wife,  she  usually  cleans  the  mess  for  me.  Chuckle  
 And  yes  some  of  my  fish  end  up  more  colourful  than  they  are  depending  on  where  they  end.
 The  Channa  and  Tilapia  would  be  more  life  like.  The  jack  is  colourful  cause  it  was  for  a  Mangrove  diorama  prepared  for  the  Pulicat  lake  interpretation  centre.  They  wanted  a  colourful  mangrove  fish  to  feature  in  their  diorama............so  I  gave  them  a  really  colourFUL  fish  Chuckle
