There was talk on FB Clay Buddies about the last thing we made in 2016. I made these mermaids and gargoyles for my great niece's wedding on New Year's eve. She and her new husband are part of Ten31 Productions. Ashley is The Mermaid and Patrick is The Gargoyle. There were gargoyles and living trees at the wedding so the cake toppers and decorations were fitting indeed.
I took this picture while they were still cooling in the kiln. I paint the mermaid faces with acrylic after firing; it's safer that way. These are made of porcelain bisque fired to ^05. I mixed my underglazes colors with one coat of Spectrum Clear over.
Happily, they were well received!
Here's to a new hope for a happy, healthy and joyous 2017!
As always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*
P.S. Edited to add a photo of the mermaids with faces. Thanks for reminding me, Michele, that I took these before packing them!
