I am currently working on some pieces for my upcoming show called Caffeinated Art, and This mermaid loves tea canvas is full of whimsy and shine. I have to say that I truly love the DecoArts Inc. products and I thank then for letting me partake in this Glitter It! job.
I used the colors below to create her hair. First by using the Americana Marigold as a base, then adding both the Glamour Dust paints in Lemon Drop and Copper. After they dried I added more swirls of Americana Whispering Turquoise and Marigold, finishing off with the 3-D Gloss Enamel in black for accenting.
Her eyes were created by first painting a base coat with Americana Multi Surface Satin, then covering it with the Glamour Dust Aqua. After they dried I used the 3-D Gloss Enamel in the center for the pupil and using a straight pin to pull out the paint in a star burst pattern. Using the same pin to pull out her eyelashes
I used these 3 colors for the background straight from their bottles, Whispering Turquoise, Bahama Blue and Silver Twinkles writer.
You can use this picture above as a reference to see how the Glamour Dust alters the color of Bahama Blue ( in the picture above the Bahama Blue is on the right side ) when layered over it.
This is a closeup of her top where I used the Glamour Dust Emerald over the Americana Bahama Blue. It really picked up the gold undertones.
On her tail I layered the Glamour Dust Aqua over the Americana Bahama Blue for a ultra rich looking blue!
And for the lower portion of her body, I mixed the Americana Bahama Blue with the Glamour Dusts, Aqua and Emerald.
And lastly, I hand sewed some beads onto her tail and around her hips..
I hope you enjoyed my mermaid, I know I really enjoyed the DecoArt products, they always make every project just a little more fun!
