I made this for my daughter since she loves mermaid things.
I took a piece of plywood and drew a mermaid tale on it with a pencil. I then cut it out using my scroll-saw. Once I was done I sanded the edges so they would not be rough.
I then painted the tale using Plaid paint. I used a couple of different colors to give it a two-toned look.
I let the paint completely dry.
Once dry I took a small paint brush and wrote the words out using black paint.
I added a few silver stars around the tale.
