Mermaid Shells and Necklaces

This week, I am painting shells for the shop.

It will be getting busy soon, so it's time to stock up for the Summer.

These are all new mermaid designs. I like to do new ones every year.
I make a transfer from my drawings and apply the mermaid on the shell.

Then I hand paint all of the flowers and other designs with acrylic paint.

Then I seal it with two coats of water based varnish. Voila!
Here are the shell shard necklaces that I make using the same method. I string them with ribbon or cording. I make a bunch this year! 
Thanks for looking! :)
