Rosie Mermaid ....


Rosie, a paperclay mermaid...

I taught Rosie Mermaid along with the blue mermaid in Florida at Annie Hesse s studio.!  WOW! what a beautiful work place to be in....
It was a perfect class, Heather Brauner helped me teach....and every student sculpted ,painted, and jointed her doll, and created and embellished the tails...amazing!   

Having problems with uploading pictures from my phone so this is all i have until i get it going again.  I do have the mermaid tail in some steps so that you can try at home!!!
