Sea Mist Handpainted Mermaid Necklace

OceanMist1closeupsm

Here is my latest hand painted mermaid necklace “Sea Mist”.  She is painted with acrylics on a dreamy turquoise, green and brown Sea Sediment Jasper stone.  This gorgeous mermaid necklace reminds me of the mysterious sea and I love the way her long brown hair blends into the spider web patterns of the jasper stone.

Serenity Mermaid Hand Painted Box

SerenityFINALfb0

Recently I finished painting this beautiful green mermaid wooden keepsake box.  This new design was based on my original mermaid sketch from November last year.

The box was made of light weight wood and needed some sanding and wood filler – (and more sanding!) before I could start painting.  I used graphite paper to transfer the mermaid design on to the top of the box and started by painting the gold circle background.  The mermaid itself came together quite quickly and I was really happy with the colours and style of this piece.  This is the first time I have painted a mermaid with long flowing white hair with green tones and I think she turned out beautifully.

The majority of my time making this piece was taken up with painting the entire outside of the box viridian green and the inside of the box ultramarine blue, which needed several coats and was a little tricky to paint around the circle.  The inside was also decorated with gold painted starfish and faux velvet flocking, plus a small round glass mirror.  The whole box was given endless coats of high gloss varnish, which took several weeks as I had to wait for the varnish to dry in between each coat!  In the end it turned out to be a stunning little box and will be a lovely place for the new owner to store their collection of special mermaid bracelets and pendants!
