Horse Mermaid – Collage Process Video

Artist Gianna Pergamo’s second collage time lapse video is ready to watch!

My second time-lapse collage video is done! This one starts at the initial cutting up of things and finishes wit the finished product on canvas! I think it came out great and didn’t take me as long as the first one, so I guess I am improving a bit with editing video and using Premiere.

Here it is!


There’s no voice over, so here is what you are seeing in the video (note: there were even more steps in the collaging process, but I had to cut some things for brevity):

  • Cutting out the horse
  • Taping in place kitten body
  • Drawing the shape of the mermaid tail
  • Collaging pieces of the fish together to make a mermaid tail
  • Fitting the horse body to the mermaid tail
  • Attaching a new fluke to the tail
  • Cutting the horse legs of and repositioning them
  • Drawing stripes on the tail
  • Not shown: Re-photocopying the horse mermaid
  • Coloring the horse mermaid with acrylic paint
  • Cutting out the horse mermaid
  • Using watercolor pencil on the horse mermaid
  • Adding texture to a canvas
  • Collaging painted fish to the canvas

If you enjoyed that video, please subscribe to my YouTube channel! I will be starting to put out new videos regularly, now that I’ve figured out how to do it!
