This piece was created using special papers, tempered glass, a rounded square glass plate and resin. First, Black Ink papers, as well as other colorful green, blue and purple opaque papers and glitter were adhered to the plate. Next , a resin adhesive was used to affix the tempered glass . The resin makes the plate extremely strong. The piece was then grouted using Polyblend grout with green pigments.
The resulting finish of the plate top appears aquatic, with a lot of movement and light refraction. Semi-precious gems (imperfect but great for my art) and star glass shapes were adhered on top of the tempered glass along with the mermaid.
The mermaid was a Christmas ornament in her former life, but I took her away from that. I didn't think she wanted to hang out in a tree (that's just wrong).
The green stand underneath is only for photo purposes.
Like what you see? I love to make these and would enjoy working for you. Please email me or leave a voice mail messag for more information. 916-802-5238
