Last week I mentioned I had something under-wraps.
I gave you a little sneaky peep on Wednesday but couldn't show too much as the box was a birthday present for a dear friend who had mentioned she liked my mermaids.
The box was bought ready made from a gift shop. It was just a plain cream box, lined, but apart from that just in need of some va va voom!
I wrapped the parts I didn't want to get messy in newspaper.
So when I was done it was a quick unwrap.
Here are a few detailed shots.
The tail was made from collaged aluminium. I painted acrylics over the top and then scratched through. The silver glistens through the paint like silver fish scales.
