Fiji Mermaid

I made a fiji mermaid!

The core is tinfoil, with paper clay and Apoxie clay on the outside.

I used acrylic paint to finish the ugly dude off.

Overall, including the base, it measures 8" tall x 7" wide.

Yikes, indeed! He looks like the stuff that nightmares are made of… so well-sculpted and well-painted! I can’t even imagine starting with a ball of tinfoil and winding up with something so detailed.

He just oozes stellar-epicness!!! I love his brow bone, his overall color, and his delicately precise fingers.

Dead.Nice.

Oh I love this so much. There is a Ripley’s Believe It Or Not in the town my grandparents lived when I was a kid and I was enthralled every time I went. The creepy stuff just fascinated me, and still does. This is really awesome. What a fun piece to have sitting in one’s home to see every day.

I’m so jealous of this thing! It’s a really cool piece! This oddity is so realistic but not as gross as the original fiji mermaids which I appreciate. lol! Your artistry is beyond compare.
