It is our pleasure to extend a special invitation to attend this Aquacade Extraordinaire – the first ever show in our new theater . . .
Ladies, Gentlemen, may we present to you a performer that scales well to any venue . . . our lovely dancing mermaid, Raine’.
When she is standing still it doesn’t look that she would move at all since her scales look to be sculpted together. So it is rather a surprise indeed when the sprightly lass starts dancing to the amazement of onlookers.
She is modeled after an antique lamp and is made of resin clay. The middle of the marquee was made from a thrift store picture frame that is turned on its side and then new deeper sides made to turn it into a shadow box. That way we could add the shells. We made a mold of the ornate metal top and then added it back to the other side to make it look balanced. The vintage image of a wave has always been a favorite of mine. Thanks again, Heide!
Ahoy mateys! If you’re still with me perhaps you too love fishy things and sea-spray in your face on a brisk bright morn. If so you might like this crazy little song “Cape Cod Girls” as I do. I highly recommend having a few brew skis first and it’ll sound even better. I know it’s 8 in the morning! That hardly matters– it’s the pirates way. Just hoist the ale and watch the video already. : )
