    Question about mounting prints outside

    I make a lot of fish prints, aka "gyotaku", which look like this:

    That's made from a halibut I caught, by simply covering it in a non toxic ink called sumi ink and then putting "rice paper" over it. The paper isn't actually rice paper, just has a similar texture.

    And every time we make some prints we wind up with a ton of extras that don't get framed. I thought a fun project for those would be to mount some of them outside on a fence I have in my yard.


    I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for doing that?

    It would be exposed to a lot of wind, rain and sun.

    Maybe modge podge?

    Or epoxy? If epoxy, is there some preparation for the paper? And what epoxy? And how to get UV protection?


    Or some other clever method?

    Thanks for any help!
