After you have downloaded and printed off the template you can choose your most favorite media to work with – may it be water colors, coloring pencils, markers, even stamps would work well to create a pattern on the mermaid tail.

I used aquarell watercolor pencils – so first you color with your aquarell pencils and then add a bit of water to a brush and go over the colored areas. The result is usually gorgeous vibrant colors.

Our family LOVES glitter (don’t mention the mess though LOL) so we applied lots and lots of liquid glue and then sprinkled the glitter on top.
