Siren Dreams signature tutorial continued......




next stage is to add some texture & dimention to your background I have chosen to use orange halloween net...you can pick these up at you hot dollar store,cut to preferred size & glue on with good glue.













Add some coarse texture paste to the bottom, use a broad knife or some kind of plastic knife to spread it like butter...let it dry,once it has dried add some coloured crepe paper in strips glued with a water down pva,let it dry ,once dried then paint the course texture paste.













Tadaa!!!!!!Now let it dry & put it aside.




Now grab your  Mermaid & add some smooth texture paste to her bottom end to her tail, make some patterns with the plastic tool you have handy in your stash & let her dry.tune in for the next part of this step by step tutorial.







ok now i want you to paint your to paint the tail end of your mermaid.I have also added some mica powder to her tail..it gives her a wonderful shimmer ,mica powder is also known as pearl ex,shimmer powder or perfect pearls.Once you have done that then glue her to the back ground you created.....i have decided to bend her tail  to give it some dimension.once the glue has dried, paint in her hair in and let it dry...




Now add some bling,glitter,micro beads more mica powder don't hold back,then finish off her hair.




Now to finish her off add some finishing touches like more netting,bling,glitter on her hair to give her that seaweedy look I call it....hahaha.......I added some silver metal flowers as well so she all coming togeather.use whit paint to make her hair pop........& tadaa all done, now for the front & back.
