Mermaid - Third Coast Designs



I finally got around to finishing my texture mermaid - I bought the stamp from Third Coast Designs and wanted to make something to do it justice.

I got the chance when Zuzu and Ginger came to visit for a few hours and they showed me how to use texture paste. I didn't get to finish it at the time - but have spent a while adding bits and finishing it off since then.

In real life - it is lovely and shimmery and 'wet' looking just like a mermaid under the sea. The pearls around the edge and her necklace are all done with liquid pearls. There is silver and sea foam embossing too - and of course lots of texture!

I have been trying to find something to dangle at the bottom - a single pearl - but alas can't find one anywhere - so she is hanging in my studio until such times I can find what I have in mind.

She does look very 'floaty' so the effect is perfect - in fact, she looks as if she's wearing a secret smile at her thoughts.

Beautiful piece - hope you find a suitable 'dangler' shortly! I can see the charity shops are about to be raided on your next excursion to town.
