Mermice

See.. My wondering mind has kicked in again... And I ran into these guys yesterday. 
So they got a coat of sealer.. And sometime over the weekend 3 of them will get listed in my store. Not sure which one I'm going to keep yet, maybe I'll let Cora decide?!

These are what we call around here Mermice... Lol. The idea came from Jill Barklems book Sea Story.. One day I want to build Sandy Bay and so the collection/building/creating part has begun... 

I think I like this story the best because its by the beach. If you can check out my Sandy Bay Pinterest board.. You will see neat things like a kitchen table with seashell legs.. And a bathroom wall lined in razor clam shells. They also eat seaweed:) I'm thinking I could add a lot of interesting seafood to their kitchen. I want to use a lot of the things from the story, but I also want to add things. I have never lived more than twenty minutes away from the beach.. So it just feels right:)

These were sculpted and then hand painted by me before I broke my fingers.. Me and the polymer clay don't get along too we'll these days.. But then again holding a tiny paint brush The Right Way isn't that easy either. One day:)

Until next time...
