Numbering the mermaid tiles


Mermaid numbers


I am all done sculpting her-whew! that was tricky. I sure hope that she fits properly into the surrounding water tiles already done. In the above photo I have number the parts so I can engrave the numbers and “which way up arrows” on the back because with about 250 tiles now it can get really confusing.Its like a giant puzzle. I think her face and hands turned out better this time. Now she is drying on the rack (sounds like torture) fort 2 weeks. The books say to let it dry for 3 weeks bu thats too long for me. I’ll just be sure to use a 3 hour preheat in the kiln to be sure she id dry before bisque firing her.


  1. a long-rough-frustrating project but it the end “perfection”!!!!

  2. Thanks Lynn. I can’t wait to get it up on the wall.

  3. congrats! Now don’t RUSH to finish it up 🙂
