Needle felted and mixed media imaginary animal sculptures. Each approximately 6″ tall.
Merlings are blue flippered and tufted water-loving friends. Merlings have dark blue/turquoise backs and shade to white on the belly and under the chin. Flippers have ochre coloured nails (4 on the front flippers, 3 on the rear flippers). Feathery ear tufts shade from light to darker blue on the tips. Their eyes are amber. Noses are soft pink.
These sculptures are hand made limited edition "litters". Each type of animal is only created once, and the number of animals in each litter is very small. Within each group there are variations in faces, colouring, and features.
Bodies are felted wool with glass beads for weighting. Heads, horns, nails, etc are made by hand with various modelling clays that have been painted and varnished.
