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:
