I recently started working with clay. Here’s my first attempt at a mermaid. It took me about an hour and a half to finish. It was a lot of fun and quite simple, but time consuming. After about 5 unsuccessful attempts to make her face, I decided to leave her face-less. My mother thinks she would be better with a face, so I’ll keep trying. For crafty people or people who want to try something new, this is REALLY fun and simple, I got my SculpeyIII (R) crafty clay at Walmart. I haven’t baked my mermaid to harden it yet but will update when I do!
