She's done! I will be making prints and giclées of this image. Next stop is the glasser.

Here is a photo of the Abalone Mermaid as almost done. I actually finished her yesterday, but didn't take a photo. She is currently with Peter, who photographs all of my art, and I will pick her up next week, take her to the glasser down in Ventura and she will recieve her final coat of gloss polish. I always have my boards photographed before the coat of final varnish since it will be so shiny that it will cause too much glare for a picture.
She may take more than one coat of resin since my paint application can be thick at times. I applied a lot of gold leaf and then distressed it by sanding it back and mottling and stippling paint over it, giving an aged and abstract background. I will have a photo of the finished product soon!
