MerBaby Kewpies



Having an fond affection for both Mermaids and Kewpies, I've wanted to make them for quite some time...over a year to be exact. Finally got to them a few months ago  and made this one for an upcoming class...


The subsequent ones were to be for sale and have more sculpted features. 


The tiny Kewpie puss really killed me and were super tedious to make. Kinda one of those, "what was I thinking moments". But their cuteness propelled me along.



I also made necklaces.


And more learning to swim Merbabies as well...


I was so fortunate and happy to sell out quickly and scrambled to make an entire new batch for orders. 



Lastly I made only one of another style kewpie. Lots of sculpting and mounted to wood. This little darling with her octopus friend is 18 inches alone, top of octopus to tip of tail.  


I simply adore her and her octopus and seahorse friends...she is staying with me and now graces my studio wall. 


I plan on making more in a few months after I complete my Halloween work. She makes me smile each time I look at her.


I want to thank all of my wonderful customers who adopted my Merbabies.
Can't thank you all enough for supporting me in my work.


Have a great week! Halloween is in full swing here in my studio for my upcoming shows, Halloween and Vine and Glitterfest. Hope to see you there!
