The Siren Creature was inspired by the idea that in ancient days sailors without glasses who saw mermaids didn’t realize all they were actually viewing were sea lions and seals on the distant rocks. This idea was combined with inspiration from the angler fish which uses a luminescent fin ray to lure its prey like a siren would lure in sailors.
The sculpture was mainly created with Super Sculpey. The luminescent fin ray was created with an LED light, hot glue and Apoxie Sculpt. The fins were crafted with recycled bottle plastic, and the scale texture on the fins was added with Mod Podge. The creature was painted with acrylics with accents in soft pastels and eye shadow. The rocks below were carved in foam and painted with joint compound mixed with acrylic paint.
