I'm posting Mermaids and Pirates together because they just seem to go hand-in-hand in my opinion...but also because I have mingled some mermaid designs into my Pirate themed coins.
Now, like the Faery coins I also dust my Mermaid coins with colorful pearlescent pigments and glitters...though I do try to keep more greens and blues with the Mermaids.
My Pirate coins are spray painted in a variety of metal colors from silver and gold to copper and bronze. And then I just do an aged blackened patina on them...though, I have done a few with a turquoise looking water-rust effect, which was pretty cool looking, too. :)
And the few pics are the Renaissance themed coins. Now these are done with a little more of a realistic flair with designs that are familiar to the Renaissance/Medieval period. They are not as aged as the Pirate coins are, but do still have a little bit of a tarnished patina on them.
Like the Faery coins and the Renaissance coins, I am planning to eventually create themed photos for each series of coins. I have plans for better staged photos for both the Mermaid and Pirate coins. But for now, this is what I've got.
Oh, and eventually I will be making the Mermaid coins waterproof for Mermaid performers/entertainers. :)
-Two mermaids with a Pirate ship between their tails.
-Here's a mix of Mermaid and Pirate coins. I included holes at the tops of coins when it is requested, so they can be worn on a necklace or as a favor.
-A lone mermaid looking out at a ship on the waves.
-A Renaissance Jester coin at the bottom here.
-Just Pirate coins here.
