Something Different in Soul Sucker Land!

A mermaid!


Meet Neith, Egyptian name meaning water. Neith is one a the few steampunk mermaids left in the kingdom of creativity. She hides in the underground water systems, sad that she can't visit the ocean. But she knows the Evil Soul Sucker sends out ships with huge nets trying to find her kind, he already captured her papa.

Neith is hand sculpted from epoxy over an armature. She measures 15" tall by 11" wide by 2" deep. Her arms are wire at the top so she is pose-able. She's bigger than most of my dolls so that she will make an impression on the wall. Her left eye is grey glass. Her right eye is a beautiful vintage watch piece. All over her tail I embedded found items that have to do with the sea. Her sleeves are hand dyed fabric made to look like seaweed, there are also a few pieces in her hair. I hand painted her in layers and sealed her with a matte finish.
