Tinca tinca
My heart sank when I was allocated paint as a medium, until it dawned on me that there was nothing in the rules that said the paint had to be removed from its container. In a sideways nod to Damien Hirstís "Isolated Elements Swimming in the Same Direction for the Purpose of Understanding", I have arranged pots of poster paint on the shelves of a wall mounted vitrine, to make one large trophy tench. The paint cost £10 for 120 pots, and as luck would have it, weighs approximately 10Lb, which is also a typical weight for a prize winning tench (Latin name Tinca tinca).
