WIP Resting mermaid

What are YOU working on today? I know...it's so nice outside and my mermaid soul is so wanting to go take a dip in the ocean or lay out on the sand and soak up some sun. My muse whispered in my ear though,  that I would so much more enjoy sculpting a mermaid instead..ri iight!!!  HA!! I've learned that I can't mess with the muse...so sculpting has begun.
I'm using a base that I designed some time ago. It has been sitting here on my work area for some time so I guess the muse decided it was time to do something with it. ^_^   I have the wire armature completed and wrapped...waiting on the coat of glue to dry.

I'm trying a new way to do my eyes....fingers crossed it works. It's a technique that a friend uses at times so I thought I would give it a try. Thank you Johanna!!! I used my watercolors and drew up some eyes on paper and then printed them off. This way I can do a set and just change the size to what I need. Also, I found some great eyes on contact sites too....thinking they might work as a good base. (I'm having some issues with my eyes so this might be the way I start doing my eyes....we will just have to SEE. HAHA...I made a funny...get it!!) These are just WIP eyes so don't panic...they will look better once completed.
Now then....I think since my armature is having to set up to dry AND the sun is shining so brightly AND there is a light breeze blowing, I'm going to sneak outside to soak up some sun. DON'T tell the muse, please!!!

Until next time.............Hugs,
