  1. Well, I’m finally getting to dig into my truckload of fossils from my Wyoming trip with @RJB so it’s my turn to open up a prep thread. I spent a couple hours today poking around to find the perfect fish to start with. The 18” layer never disappoints. This good sized Diplomystus has 2 Knightia on top of it. I’m going to try to save both but I’m concerned that the right hand one is covering most of the Diplo’s skull. If that’s the case, the little guy will have to go! This is after about 90 minutes of scribe work.

    Fish paintings

    I'm working on some new fossil fish paintings and thought I'd share them here. I'm trying to work my way through the Green River formation fish first, though I'm sure I won't paint them all. I've only done two so far, but I'll add more as I paint them. The quality will vary, I'm sure. Here's my take on a Priscacara. and of course a Knightia: I've started on a diplomystus, and will post that soon. Thanks for looking. Oh, for those interested, I'm using gouache paints, similar to watercol

    Knightia or Diplomystus?

    I bought this prepare your own fossil fish either knightia or diplomystus so I could prepare something for the first time which is why it looks like this don’t judge. I was wondering two things actually, one is it a knightia or diplo? And two are all green river fish this hard? I know I didn’t do a good prep job but was the fish poorly preserved as well? It was paper thin in some places and the fish doesn’t look whole it looks like its bones got moved after it died. Oh it’s also about 3 inches from the mouth to the “end” of the tail

    Diplomystus prep

    Hi all, I recently acquired this large Diplomystus fish from holdinghistory, not cleaned any of this materiel before so it’s been a bit of a steep learning curve, still lots to do but Im enjoying cleaning this. Thanks for looking Regards Neil.
  8. Hello Everyone, Newbie here from the Emerald Isle. I finally pulled the trigger and purchased my first fossil—a Green River Diplomystus dentatus with Knightia eocaena. The seller is well-known and highly regarded on this forum so I’m not necessarily concerned with the authenticity, but I am really keen to hear people’s opinions on this specimen. My apologies if this is the wrong place to post. Thanks, Robert
  9. I got this fish with some others in a trade deal the other day; I was supposed to get a mixed box of Diplomystus and Knightia, but this guy stood out for me. Doesn't look like either, and seems a bit too big for Amphiplaga. Maybe juvenile Mioplosus? Anybody? Is there another photo that can help? Thanks for looking!

    FIRST DIPLOMYSTUS PREP

    Hi all, it's my first green river fossil fish prep, i think head preped out ok, but before I start with the rest, since there are some very experience Green river preparators here, I would appreciate any tips how to preserve soft tissue parts (between ribs i.e.)!? Thank you in advance! Hope to save as much soft tissue as possible, like in example below (not sure if any colour enhancements though?). Downloaded this pic from fossilrealm web:
  11. Basically, I put a bunch of fossil fish together in one piece . All fish that I have found at the Green River formation in Wyoming. There's a Phareodus, a bunch of Diplomystus, and Knightia. Jared
  12. Fossils range from 1.5 to 7.5 inches. Found in the last three years at American Fossil and Warfield quarries.

    Fossil Drawing Video

    Sumi e fossil Drawing Video I wanted to show you a video I took of myself drawing a Diplomystus dentatus with a Sumi e technique. It is about 4 minutes long.
  14. After sharing a japanese style sumi e drawing of a Phareodus testis, and getting a lot of great feedback, I decided to draw more fossils. This time I am drawing a Diplomystus dentatus. Picture of the fossil I am going off of is attached. I'll post a picture of the drawing when it's done. Working on it now. Jared
  15. Hello. Every once in a while I see these "juvenile Diplomystus" listed on our favorite auction site. The fins seem to match Diplomystus, but it would be great if someone with more GR knowledge than me could shed some light. The little guy is 1" long, tiny

    Fossil Fish ID Help

    The seller labels this as a diplomystus from green river but I don't think it is. The fins look wrong to me. What do you guys think?
  17. Bought a fossil online. Wanted to know if it is real or not. I'm a new member, so ignore my lack of knowledge on these things.
  18. Hello, I was looking at one of my fossils, a Mioplosus I found in Wyoming to be exact, and I noticed some weird bumps in the rock under the jaw. I was like, "Is that a spine? It cant be." Now, the mouth of the Mioplosus was mangled, so you cant make out the jawline. After seeing what looked like a spinal chord under the mouth, I had a theory, "What if the mangled mouth is actually another fish the Mioplosus was eating when it died?" After gently scraping away some of the rock around the bumps I thought were a spinal chord, I confirmed my theory to be correct

    Another Fish Prep

    Are y'all getting tired of GRF fish prep threads yet? Well, too bad here's another one. This Diplomystus is working its way through the rotation on the prep bench. I now have a tall bench with a standard desk height left hand return table for my prep area. The magnifying lens lamp can swivel between the 2. This allows me more flexibility to lean in over a larger piece to prep areas that are hard to reach on the higher bench. Also, this allows me more room to have multiple projects going at the same time. Next step is to build a stand for the blast cabinet on the right hand side of the bench to

    Framing a Diplomystus

    When I was out at American Fossil Quarry earlier this year digging for Green River fish, I came across this nice little Diplomystus dentatus. Except for missing part of the tail, it’s in good shape. It was on a much larger slab, so to make it easier to bring home I trimmed it to the shape you see here while I was at the quarry. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it, but I’ve now decided to frame it and give it as a Christmas gift. The shape didn’t lend itself to easy framing, so I decided to make sort of a shadow-box frame. I went to the local Home Depot and picked up
  22. I just got back from a week-long trip that included a stop to dig Green River fish at the American Fossil Quarry outside of Kemmerer, Wyoming. That was a successful venture and I will post a separate entry showing some of my finds once I get them unpacked. While I was there, I stopped in at the nearby Fossil Butte National Monument. In the visitor center, one of the rangers was doing a demo of prepping a Green River fish (a Diplomystus from the 18" layer they got from one of the commercial quarries). I didn't take any photos but I did ask a lot of questions. Before I share his answers, y
  23. My wife and I just got back from a week’s driving tour through Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. We stopped in at American Fossil Quarry outside of Kemmerer, Wyoming, for a few hours to dig for Green River fish. It was a productive day, and we both bagged some nice finds. Seth, the owner of the quarry and a TFF member, wasn’t there that day, but his assistant, Nick, was very helpful in getting us started. I brought a bag full of tools which were mostly unnecessary. As Nick pointed out, all you really need is a brick hammer and a thin chisel, both of which they provide. I noted that since this w

    Another Green River Prep

    Here’s another torture prep. This is a little Diplomystus from the ultra hard bottom cap. This one is a bit harder to prep because there’s actually very little matrix on the fossil. So, it’s much easier to accidentally go through it with the scribe. I’m alternating between scribe and abrasive on this one.

    Another Auction Prep

    @holdinghistory was the winner of the most recent prep auction that I held to support our great community here. He sent me a Diplomystus from the Green River Formation 18” layer. I finished up some other preps and got started on this today. Here’s how this started out:
