My Mermaid Canvas~Seaside Memories

Well, created my first clay mermaid canvas!  This is pretty big about 11 x 24.  I really enjoyed the process and have to thank Angela for the inspiration. 
I still have not finish her hair…hmm can’t decide what color?  What do you think, blonde, white, brown or brunette?  I also, want to create a clay gold fish to go inside the globe.  Here are a few close ups on how I started:
Here you can see I sprayed glimmer mist on the right and it kind of wash out the canvas out a bit.  (should have left it alone…lol)  I’ll share some close up of the tail and the hair:
I could have stopped here but, really wanted her to have long flowing hair.
Do you notice the difference between these two????  Well, I used alcohol ink to dye the one on the left as I didn’t like how shinny the clear crystals were.  So, What color do you think her hair should be?  
I also, am going to add a title at the top “Seaside Memories”.  Have a great weekend.  ♥Hugz, Zandra♥


  1. Oh I loooooove this! Just beautiful and I think her hair should be blue or green! or a combination of both! lol

  2. WOW Zandra - this is amazing.

  3. Amazing Zandra! Love the blues and greens and the tail is awesome. I think the hair should be brown. (but then again I am partial because I have brown hair)

  4. WOW! Zandra this looks amazing. The colours are just WOW!.....beautiful work. I'm thinking an antique gold or bronze for her hair but I'm sure whatever you decide it will be awesome.
