Mermaid and Faerie battled it out!!!! Ohh nooo's noon here and only 40 degrees and the wind is blowing about 100 mph. Ok it's not exactly blowing that hard (hehe) but it is blowing around 30 and that makes it feel even colder. Brrrrrr!!!

I have put the Faerie Godfather (Godfrey) on hold for a bit. With Ms Peaches having walked out of our lives...I just don't have the "umph" to work on it right now. Ya'll all know me though and know good and darn well that I'm not sitting here twittling my thumbs. Oh NOOOO...well...of course I couldn't be. Do you know how hard it would be to type this post and twittle?

I have gone through my shell collection. The collection I have from our beach walks and souvenir hunting (well some days it's just not a good day to walk on the beach) and pulled out a few interesting ones. My mermaid soul has been whispering lately that she wants to come out and play some. (she was actually threatening my poor faerie muse) I guess you can see who won this battle. ^_^

Aren't these unique and interesting looking? I love shells and have so so so soooooooo many that I really need to share some. I sat and looked at these hoping something would pop out at me. Well...not actually POP out at me...I do clean the shells really good. HA!! Even though it was my mermaid soul that was whispering..she wasn't saying "Do a sculpt of me please". No, she was saying that I needed to do something regarding the sea....the sea and the mystical realm. As soon as I heard thought that....I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

A sea dragon!! This is just a WIP photo showing what I have done up to now on him. He has a strong wire armature. I used foil to bulk him up and then wrapped him in florist tape. I'm planning on making some of his scales look like the points/tips on his shell.

I'm going to cover the florist tape in glue...let him dry and then start covering him in clay. I'm so happy that my mermaid soul wanted to come out and play. Ohhh and I'm in no way saying I promote violence of any kind. I mean how much harm can a mermaid and faerie do to each other. HEY...stop that you throwing clay balls at the artist!!!!

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


  1. Sea dragons, yay! I can't wait to see him all finished and ready for trouble. :) xo

  2. I LOVE your sea dragon- how cool is he? The minute I saw him, I thought of one of my favorite reads this year, "The Scorpio Races" about water horses. VERY cool book with lots of beautiful imagery. Anyway, as I said, I LOVE your sea dragon!
    Stay warm ;) (we're freezing here in Atlanta too ;))

  3. Fabulous, I can't wait to see him finished, hehe you definitely would not like the weather here at the moment (snow everywhere)
