Loved working on my Madame Mermaid project. I cut her from plywood after making a template from the back of some Christmas paper – they have those wonderful one inch square markings! I knew I wanted her to be ‘curvy, so I drew ‘half’ of the mermaid and then cut her out and traced her shape onto the plywood. After that it was just about placing all the glass mosaic tiles where I wanted them. I did her skin in a light weight spackle and added the starfish. This sounds very simple, but it did take me about 4 days of hard work to get her done. Snipping glass tiles is a slow process. What a perfect addition to Joe’s Bar.
