New pendant design!
Please read on for details, I'll be selling these! Please also leave me some comments...I'm excited about this piece and want to know if other people like it as much as I do
Note: This is a shot of the original sculpt corded the same as the castings will be corded

I am EXTREMELY happy with how this piece turned out
. I feel like he's playful and a bit rowdy...and can picture him exploring ancient undersea ruins. I know that's corny but for some reason this piece was just a lot of fun for me, and I feel like he has a lot of life for a little sculpt! The last time I sculpted a merman was 1998
As you can see, this is a VERY small sculpt! I used supersculpy firm mixed with supersculpy. I'm very happy with his face, expression, and pose...I feel it came out really well for the size
! I'll probably end up wearing this one quite a bit, and I have a female mermaid about 70% done as well that I'll be selling with him as a pair, or separately. She should be done next week.
I like the idea of designing a merman with a shark body for added masculinity...and I also added some male shark anatomy called "claspers" on his front. I also have an old Photoshop painting with a merman and mermaid that I really need to get back to at some point...this figure is very similar to the merman in my painting.
This is a pendant design with a flat back, yet still has a mostly 3D feel as he's leaning forward, with just part of his back against the rocky base. I'll be casting these in a sturdy polyurethane resin, then paint washing them, and finally cording them on leather crimped with a glass bead
. Single, these will be sold at $30.00, but for both the merman and mermaid when she's done, I'll be selling them at $55.00 (buy as a pair and save $5.00 basically). If you're interested comment or note me...I accept paypal and postal money orders, and ship anywhere in the world for $5.00!
