Very good idea!
We made something like this years ago: an alien coming out of a corpse chest showed in an aquarium.
I like that!

Awesome idea! It's especially well executed, as usual!

Are you going to "dirty up" the fish tank as well? Ie. maybe some greenish algae stains or something?

Really looking forward to see the finished piece!

Thanks very much for all the kind words everyone!

I did some small test mixes with Gedeo Crystal Clear resin last night - one with Thrakka Green wash added - and they look good so far. They'll take 24 hours to cure and the mermaid isn't completely finished yet but I hope to be all ready to pour the resin in the next few days!

@Pfreck - not sure I'll add any "gunk" inside - I want the mermaid to be really visible.

Here's the resin test (with a bit of "sea weed" encapsulated within it):





I've finished painting the mermaid!

I'm pouring the resin next!

do mermaids REALLY need loincloths? Very Happy

very cool looking stuff. one thing to be careful about though. depending on what resin you use, it could become warm during the crosslinking (hardening) process. some resins will become so warm that they destroy themselves in the middle if you try to cast something that is too big (because the heat cant travel out fast enough). if you noticed the mixing pot becoming hot when it hardened, it might be an idea to try and put the whole thing in a bucket of water while its curing, to cool it. But hopefully your resin wont have such problems. only some do Very Happy

It's okay - this stuff didn't become even warm as it's designed for encapsulation. Very Happy

Very nice seamonst.... i mean, seamodell!

Really like the more "realistic" approach in giving her a silvery "tail" instead of the green we can see in Disney movies..

VERY NICELY DONE! I was wondering how you'd paint up the Fish Babe; AND she turned out GREAT...good color choices. Loin clothes are the chic fashion accessory with the Merwenches this season. What a Face

Well, I take that back. It's got quite warm in a larger quantity!...

I've done a two stage resin pour. I mixed a small batch up last night poured it over some plastic plant bits and suspended the tail of the mermaid in it:





This morning the resin was part-cured and solid enough to support the mermaid:







So I mixed a large batch of resin (the trick bit was colour-matching it to the last lot!) and did a second pour:





Now I just have to wait for a day or so to see if it works! silent

She looks STUNNING...waiting for the resin to dry is an exercise in true anxiety. I'll keep you & her in my prayers...since God takes care of fools, drunks, & little children, I have an in with The Man. What a Face

Thanks all! Really, really grateful for the comments! Very Happy

It's not glued together yet but I've assembled it to see how it looks. The resin isn't perfect - there were some "bubble" issues in the corners which needed a lot of attention but overall I'm pleased with it! So I present:
