Here is the piece I designed for the Under the Sea-DecoArt challenge and also my Daughter in Laws Sarah Garner-Armstrong book signing for her book "Sinking." I used pages from her transcript and matte medium and then used Deco Media colors Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Titanium White, Quinacridone Violet, Quinacridone Red to paint the background. The mermaid and rock where sculpted with polymer backing clay and the rock was painted with Titanium White and Carbon Black. Mermaid was first painted in acrylic and then a dry brush coat of Dazzling Metallics in Amethyst and Purple Pearl. Waves on the ocean and around the rock where created with texture paste and painted. Embellishments were added and the mermaid was done.
