Mermaid on left, was made to look distressed. I have noticed a trend when I shop.If I see something in white like this I can only imagine it in color. I picked the two different room I wanted these mermaids in and got busy with color.
I really want to paint the face at the top of this website! ;)
This shot was taken right before I put the last coat of color - irredecent pearl. It toned down the yellow/blonde in the redish brown hair. To make the tail look scaly, I just "dry brushed" three different colors randomly on tail and its the irredecent pearl that gives them the twinkle shine.
