This morning I just finished painting this magical Flying Fish Mermaid art pendant on a large green and brown sea sediment jasper stone, with 100% Sterling Silver bail and trim.
This piece was based on an earlier drawing design of mine “Mermaid’s Drift”.
For the layout I printed out a very small resized version of the drawing and placed it on the pendant to decide the best position on the stone. The design placement worked very well with the colours in the stone – it looked as though she was sitting on a ledge in the green sea.
Then I started painting the beautiful colours of wings, tail and body using acrylic paints. It takes a few layers to build up the details.
The finished piece is highlighted in many fine golden brushstrokes, giving it a magical sparkle!
