I’ve just started on the top part of the second mermaid, which is the one I am converting to purples. Unfortunately, I discovered that the Kreinik braid I picked out of my stash to use in this section happened to be #8 instead of #4. Not sure how a #8 snuck into my stash as I have never used it, but this did necessitate me having to order the right size. Bother.
Also, I decided I wanted this mermaid to have lighter hair than the other, so I am also converting the colors for that. I will start work on the hair tomorrow, so hopefully it will come out nicely. The fins I will keep the same colors, because I like the contrast it has with the new colors of the bodies. Also, I’m not a fan of the blended colors. Just so you know. 😛
Lots of bling on this design with all the metallics and beads. I’ve attached over 500 beads so far, and there is something like 2200+ beads in all. Yowser!
