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. 


  1. Thank you for sharing with us at SanDee&amelie’s Steampunk Challenges. Huge work to compose this setup. Next, to make the decorations and fit it all in with each other. Good treasure finds and color shades. Hugs, Susan

  2. Oh, wow! Story telling at its very best, Louise! And of course it qualifies ;) 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. ;)
    Love this make and am so happy you're sharing it with us at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges!
