Little Mermaid is about 20" in length. This little lady is made from mat board as well. That is why she is in this category.  She was designed to go to an art gallery in Tucson but never made it. She is completely covered in cloth, no tissue paper for her. Her sea horse is mat board as well and painted. I used knits to cover her. It made it easier to get around the corners. She is beaded and has real pearls and a recycled coral necklace around her neck. Her face is painted. Her back is covered with poster board that has been inked in greens and then stamped with fish. 

She is more three dimensional then the picture indicates. I found out that poster board if gently coached will bend beautifully. So her tail and hands are cupped.
