Cheeky mermaid has a fun lil smirk.
Recently I had the awesome opportunity to create a polymer clay mermaid sculpture. This commision was to be a gift for a lover of all things beach related — especially flip-flops! So how do you make that work?

Mermaids Don’t have Feet…

Mermaid Sculpture holding the half shell presenting the flip-flops!

I incorporated flip-flops with a mermaid by illustrating the idea that the mermaid, who has no feet, might have found those flip-flops in the sand and seaweed, washed up on some rocks perhaps, and is returning them to their owner. A fanciful thing to imagine.

The way this was done was by utilizing both clay and natural items in combination. Her little teeny tiny clay fingers are covered in sand, as are the shoes. She carries the shoes and presents them to her owner on a half shell, surrounded by sand and “seaweed.”

Her seashell is removeable and she can hold other items in her hands, if desired. This opens up the opportunity to change things up once in a while!

So, How’d Ya Make It?

Below are a few photos of the process. The entire sculpture was only eleven inches high. This was definitely time consuming, and tricky at times, but super fun to make.
My video tutorial (which isn’t really a how-to, rather, a basic rundown of the process) shows a lot of the early parts of the creation, from creating the wire armature, to making those tiny little ‘flops! Enjoy!

One of the things mentioned in the video is that, yes, I do have MS (Multiple Sclerosis.) I don’t mention it often, but here I think it may be inspiring for others with illness.
