|Don't those anemone tickle?|
I then applied high solids medium through a stencil because I thought they look like bubbles once they dry clear. Over the top of all of that I sprayed some Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mist in French Navy. For the next layer I painted over the glass beads with iridescent water colours in several shades of blue and green.
Having painted the background I started on the foreground and drew a seahorse, a couple of clown fish and some anemones. The fish, seahorse and anemones were painted with iridescent paints in various colours before I glued them to the background and attached some tiny shells.
I found the perfect mermaid on the internet somewhere and painted her tail also with iridescent green / gold paint.
All in all I love the way it turned out despite the slight bump on the journey.
