I loved mermaids long before Disney co-opted the breed, but my tastes are a little darker these days.
I drew from human and fish skeletons for the bones, which stitched up pretty quickly.
I paint-dyed muslin for the backing.
Her hair is a variegated flat yarn I found at a thrift store; it heavily influenced the color scheme.
The kelp is silk ribbons, and I added bead bubbles to break up blank spaces.
As usual, I’m stuck when it comes to finishing and mounting. I wonder if there are YouTubes about that…
