The Mermaid Factory is a unique gift shop and a "paint your own" art studio.
All of our plaster products are handmade in Coastal Virginia and are the ideal blank canvas to inspire your creativity. Our studio offers safe and easy to use acrylic paint, glitter, and embellishments that allow you to take home your masterpiece the same day. If you don't have time to paint today, we offer "to go kits" that make great gifts or a fun rainy day activity.
We always have mermaids and dolphins but we also carry seasonal items like sharks, seahorses, sea turtles, narwhals and more! These change all the time so call ahead to see what is our "Catch of the Day".  Set up your studio session to paint yours today!

We also have pre-made mermaids and dolphins and a large and unique selection of nautical gift items perfect for  locals and visiting guests as a memento of their time in Coastal Virginia

Our studio is meticulously cleaned and spacious enough for comfortable studio sessions. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to make a RESERVATION, even for just one or two people. We cannot guarantee space for painters unless a reservation is made.

Painting your special memories with loved ones and friends will take approximately 2 hours. 

Reservations deposit is required for groups of 8 or more. 

Our Three Studios are OPEN! Make a Reservation Today!
