Another Work in Progress

Siren Song...

A different kind of mermaid...

from the armature... paper and wire and foil...




then some clay...
she's going to have wings like a fairy...  made from shells I gathered on the beach in the town where my stepfather lived...
Rather than doing all her color with layers of clay, I'm trying something new... blending liquid polymer with acrylic paint and metallic pigments to create a colored clay I can paint onto her...

I'm digging the hands...
Stay tuned!

  1. The hands are working well. One of the most difficult things to draw or sculpt, I think. Cool idea mixing the polymer, paint and pigment. It will be interesting to see how this works out!
