Mermaids Only!

Be yourself.  Unless... you want to be a mermaid.  Then, be a mermaid.
So... TRUE! 

  Today, I will show you a cute and simple project that will make your
home, or bedroom, a special haven for all those mermaid lovers.

PWStraight Medium 
Wooden Sign 
Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint*
Montana Acrylic Marker (Fine Tip)*

*Choose any color you desire!

 PWjune16 Medium Paint a coat of acrylic paint in any color onto your wooden sign.  Let dry.  This might take a while depending on the thickness of your layer, so I recommend some deep breathing exercises.  Or maybe some Netflix.  That's always a good idea.

PWjune16 Medium  Second, write "Mermaids Only!" using your paint marker.  This fine tip marker is
FANTASTIC.  It's very opaque and smooth, and it also dries flat.


PWjune16 Medium   Next,  take some glue, either hot glue or a strong clear glue like Beacon 3in1, and
make a mermaid scale pattern starting from the base of the sign.  

PWjune16 Medium  Lastly, sprinkle your glitter onto the glue!  It's best to "pipe" and glitter each row
one at a time.  This is to prevent the first few rows from drying before you get to even put some glitter on there!

And you're done!
 Now your room can be an awesome "Mermaids Only" zone!

This is a great project that can be customized in many different ways.  Add
some embellishments or change up the colors!
This is that perfect gift for that nautical-obsessed person in your life.

See you next week!
