"Malia" the Hawaiian mermaid is done!

I finished the final glazing of the woodgrain and added in 23 karat gold leaf to the areas where the sun reflects, such as the water, sarong, scales. Peter Mounier photographed her last week and here are the final shots.
Now it's all in the hands of the glasser now...she is getting her final coat of gloss polish resin today. the art should have a lot of depth and richness after the final buffing.
