redo of mermaid tiles


Mermaid #2Well, as you know the mermaid emerged from the depths of the kiln TOO BLUE! So there is no question about it, she has to be sculpted again. It is much more difficult this time because I am only redoing the parts of her that show her TOO BLUE skin, so it has to fit perfectly into the surrounding water tiles that are already finished. *sigh*

But as usually the second time around is better- I think. I like her expression better, she is happier and maybe a bit mischievous. I think her last expression was due to the fact that she knew she was too blue, even if i didn’t.

This time I will do trial pieces to check the colors before applying them to the mermaids skin. See, you can teach an old dog new tricks. I learn best from failing miserably.
