So what do mermaids and Chocolate wrappers have in common?
My mermaid base is a large plastic serving platter, collaged with book-papers, painted and stencilled with acrylics and inks.
The Mermaids? I made several, so she has mermaid sisters.
They were made with air drying clay.
I twisted them round and round to make hair tendrils.
Glued the wrappers to her clay painted head and added some little shells.
Her face is given a coat of crackle medium.
I also added some moulding paste to the plate surface to add lots of texture.
I'm going to call her Co-co. At the moment she is on my mantelpiece.
Until I find her a home. :)
