April Releases on The Farm!!! :)





Supplies: Colored in Copics, hair also colored in Prisma Pencils and a white gel pen/ For her tail, I first colored in Copics, then mixed TACKY GLUE with MATTE MEDIUM VARNISH (just a tiny bit of each), which I then brushed on her already copic colored tail. Before that dried, I sprinkled BIG, iridescent plastic glitter all over the glue/matte medium mixture. The glitter is hard to see in the picture, but it gives it that scaly, shiny look. I think it would be fun to experiment with sequins, different glitters, and even diamond stickles for her tail!/The burlap in the background is from the floral department at Michaels. I am sure a variety of netting or fabrics would look great and give Syren that authentic, mermaid feel.

Just got to ask, what have you used on her tail??? I have been looking and looking for ages trying to work it out. Is it lace? or those clear little beads (not sure of the name). :-)
