Mer-Made of seashells and driftwood.
So I thought I would give you and update of the mermaid that I'm currently building. I was a bit nervous about attempting the project, only because I haven't done a human form yet. I still worried slightly about the face and hands that I haven't yet got to. How do you make a woman's face look beautiful out of wood? I think it will be my biggest challenge!
Her body is stunning. Wish I had a body as hard and sleek!
Right now I'm in the process of attaching seashells to her entire tail. Already I have gone through an entire grocery bag of shells (20 pounds at least) and its only half done!
Here's a zoomed in photo of a section of the tail. This is how tightly I'm assembling the seashells! (Minus the glue that will be removed)
Heres a cheater pic (I took from the Internet) of the pose the mermaid will be in.
