Merri the Water Wing Mermaid

Merri is a little mermaid who like watching the human children swim with water wings. So she made her own. She is mixed media - Creative Paper Clay, FastMache, Rigid Wrap, over batting, masking tape, and wire armature. She is painted with acrylic paints and her hair is upholstery trim and fancy yarns using Mary Sanders Lazenby technique. Thanks Mary. I had fun doing her and I'm ready to make another one.

Merri's permanent home is in the Children's Museum of Winston-Salem in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Stop by and say hi.
