Mermaid from Distressed Striped Wood Pieces

I’ve been busy in my shop and made some pieces over a month ago that I haven’t had time to blog about.

A few of the new creations are made with strips of wood that I paint, distress, stain and attach to a backing of either plywood or mdf board.  Then I cut the final shape and stain the edges and clear coat the whole piece.

Here’s the first one… a mermaid.  [See my lobster made with the same technique here]

She is 25″ long, 16″ tall and 1″ thick.

This view, taken from an angle, lets you see the thickness of the piece better:

I’ve use white, a medium blue and two shades of turquoise.  Beachy colours I’ve used before on both my shop counter:

 As well as my mirror:

All of these pieces (well not my counter, but I could make you one) are available in my shop or online by contacting me through email or my facebook page.
