This mermaid who is the largest of my wall style mermaids, measures approximately
13" tall from the bottom of her fins to the top of her gorgeous hairdo!
Her tail fin span is 10.5", when measuring from one tip to the other. I designed her tail out of a beautiful cotton batik fabric whose colors are soft lavenders, hints of green, aqua and mauves. It is just gorgeous!
Her upper body and face are 100% silk tussah fabric. Tussah silk comes from wild moths, whose main diet is oak leaves. I use it for all of my creations faces, mermaids upper bodies, and also for my silk leaves. I individually hand-drew, needle-sculpted and hand-painted her face. Her eyes and lips have a coat of crystal clear lacquer, which gives them a 3-dimensional look and shine. The face has also been sprayed with a matte finish sealer by Krylon to protect the colors.
Her, magical, colorful hairdo was designed from three different Italian designer yarns, one of which sparkles and glistens when the sun or a light hits it.
The entire mermaid is firmly stuffed with acrylic fiberfill, and the tail, and arms have inner wire armatures, so that you may bend them a bit.
Her accents are: a Swarovski crystal necklace, silk flowers accented with Swarovski crystals in the center, as her top, a crown of real sea shells and Swarovski crystals, a Swarovski crystal belly button, real sea shells and Swarovski crystals as waist accents, and also Swarovski crystals sewn into the upper portion of her fins and 2 each on the tip of each fin.
There is a loop on the back of her neck, by which to display her on a wall. You could also display her to look as if she is standing on a shelf, but she is NOT freestanding, and would either have to lean against some or be tacked to the wall.
My photos show her leaning against something.
She is truly a magical mermaid, and would make a lovely accent to any room in your home or office.
