Fairytale Series Repaint – Iridescent Wishing Mermaid Princess


This fairytale video is brought to you with the help of my patrons. Hi everyone, I am Maria and welcome to another fairy tale video. I am a huge fan of mermaid since little and this hasn’t changed even now I can’t believe I haven’t made one yet. So here it is finally. I am using Katrine. I know she might not be a usual choice for mermaid, but I find her perfect. I love her hybrid face, and she fits perfect to my project: an iridescent wishing mermaid. I also made up a short background story for her. You can take it in the description. I started using pure acetone to remove the paint because of the shorter exposure to it. I cut the hair off and then I switch to a hair trimmer. It helps me to minimize the pluck splitting. Because she’s a mermaid, I removed the ears, and I sanded away any of the excess. Then I used epoxy to cover everything up. I didn’t want to just leave it like this and because she will have a wig. I Love using two to four wig caps and for her I am using in white. I covered it with white glue. It takes a few layers before it’s ready for the wefts. Using too many layers will make it thicker, and worse after adding the wefts. I learned it the hard way. To glue the wefts to the wig cap, I am using clear permanent glue. I add them similar to a sewn wig with a little bit of space between the rows. This way they cover the scalp well, and I can style the hair in any way I want. And here it it how it looks in the roots Next I used flat iron to settle the hair down. For her face up. I wanted a serene and dreamy eyes. I use the first sealant layers to try around and sketch the eyes before I go on with the painting. Next, I use gouache paint to draw her eyeliner. To define the upper eyelids, I used pencils and for the lips, I prefer doing it with paints. I used again the gouache paint to paint her lashes. I sketch the iris before moving on with paint. To make the eyebrows, I use pastels to shape them. And I used paint to give them more detail. For the theme of this project, I used blue tones around the eyes. It can take a few layers to build a pastel color. I used white for the light reflection, and I also use a bit to finish the rest of the details. To make the blushing, I used soft pastels mixed with a bit of shimmer. I added gloss and fine glitter to the lips and the eyes. And glitter on the cheeks and where the ears will be so that they will match I Also glue tiny pearls in the corners of the eyes I Took her part because it is easier to modify and my aim was to make the body to sort of flow so when I connect the parts, they would just fit like a puzzle and the legs wouldn’t look like they stand out I positioned them and then I started sculpting I used wire as a support and I completely sculpted the lower part At first I didn’t use aluminum foil because I wasn’t sure how I want her to pose I didn’t want the foil to show if I had to make adjustments and once you mix the two-part epoxy it starts curing Once I was done with the base, I used the foil to save material and not to turn out too heavy At first my deal was to just cup the legs as one but while I was adding the epoxy aloft how it began to look So natural and I kept shapes After it has cured completely. I just sanded some imperfections and to get a better idea if I need to sculpt more I’d drew a variety idea of fins and I transferred some on a tracing paper to get an idea how they would look together. I picked the ones I liked and to make them for each side. I flipped the paper and traced them over It doesn’t have to be perfect. Just good enough for the wire later I taped colored foil and I glued the wires over it I wanted to hide them and I glued another piece on top To create curves I used my flat iron quickly because it can melt very fast and lose all of its color Next I used my Dremel to mod the body for the fence. I was also testing them to be sure. I don’t do too much I used superglue to attach them before cutting over I made the tale by creating two fins and then gluing them together. I would make it as a whole piece But my foil was too small and this actually was better because it gave me more freedom in positioning the wires And to blend everything I used again two part epoxy I Made skills around the fence using fine white epoxy. I didn’t want them over the whole body because it would be overwhelming I Primed and airbrushed it in white before painting it. I used colors that fit to her face up in the theme of this project Making her hands was an experiment and I didn’t record this because I was so sure it wouldn’t work I basically melted the foil over them. And for my surprises did it But I also added glue after just to be sure and seal them for the painting Next I outlined the scales with white paint I sealed everything before adding glitter This made such a mess, but I collected the rest and stored it back into the bottle not to waste it. I use James pearl sea shells and starfish that I made out of polymer clay as details And I used gloss over the scales I wanted to make her mermaid ears in the use foil again, I wanted them to match with her fins, but to be slightly different I blended them with glitter and decorated them with gems and tiny pearls I was aiming for more natural look and I wanted to keep the length of the hair I made it wavy by using flatiron and then I brush the curls out and I made a few more defined curls for fairytale look Following the theme I added seashell starfish and iridescent crystals Since she’s a princess I was so eager to make a tiara. I used silver wire and bend it to look more fairytale Also with a bit of resin I cured iridescent gems And I used again starfish shells and gems to decorate it To make her top, I cut a ribbon and to use glue to try and make it look like it’s blending and Of course, I added the matching details to it. I had some silver wire left and I thought why not make a royal jewellery image with a tiara Using resin I cured iridescent gems in it Thanks to all my patrons for supporting me and thank you so much guys for watching!
