Plaque for a secret mermaid.

When my friend asked if I could make her a mermaid plaque to give her friend, I said I could try but felt slightly lacking in confidence about the outcome. But with the help of some moulds I managed to compromise between colourful and my usual “vintage, distressed, manky with rust” look 😂

And as a bonus, the secret mermaid that was the final recipient is delighted with it...

And because I managed to include my rust, cogs and rivets,I hope that it qualifies for SanDee & Amelie’s steampunk challenge site as I would like to enter it.

  2. Oh, wow! Story telling at its very best, Louise! And of course it qualifies ;)
    ...you really were worried about the outcome? It's beyond brilliant! And still a real "Zuzu" - but I see where you had to try new paths - which you managed with ease of course. ;)
