The Little Mermaid

This is my latest painting.  I had so much fun with her, and took my time getting all the little details right...I used oyster shells that we had for feeding our chickens, and I dyed them with alcohol inks to create mermaid scales!!!  I used modeling paste for her hair and the clouds, and tissue tape, metallic paint, and epoxy for the little heart.  Et voila!  She's finished!

  1. Oh I lover her!!!! The oyster shells for the scales rock and so does her hair - WOW! She is beautiful beyond belief! Oh and I really love that you have chickens.... we lost ours this past summer to some stinkin' coyotes :( Our rooster was the last one standing and poor guy is gone now too. I miss them terribly and we're hoping to start over in the spring. Maybe some lambs too - YAY! Well have a great day and now I now I know its morning by you, LOL just sent an email. ;) xo
