Coming Together

I snapped a few photos when I finished working last night in order to show the progress I made this weekend on my Mermaid gourd. Baby Mer got her tailfin and is now ready for painting.



Mama Mer got a tail. Last night I roughed in her hands - I taped her to the gourd in order to put the final pose on the hands before I add the details and bake them. Once I add her pillow to raise her up a bit into the gourd, Baby Mer will fit perfectly in her little nest!


I had intended to have that pillow made already, but now I'm glad I haven't gotten to it yet -- I discovered that I am going to need to add some weight to the bottom front of the gourd to counterbalance Mama. It's all coming together nicely.

Yes, I would say it's "coming along nicely"...or better yet, "coming along beautifully. Nice job on those hands, but it's all terrific, Judi.

The pose is simply fantastic - and the paint job superb! I'll run out of superlatives if I keep on going :) so I'll save them for when this is done!!!!!!!
