For this dresser I used a stencil from Royal Designs. I also used their stencil cream. You can find some tuturials on my YouTube channel on how to do this.
I first painted the dresser in my custom turquoise color mix (you can purchase the tutuorial on this mix in my online store). Then I did all the stenciling on the drawers with the stencil and a few different shades of the stencil creams. Just make sure each color is dry before applying a new shade.
For the mermaid tail I first drew a template with some brown paper. I then outlined that template on the sides of the dresser. I used the same stencil for inside the tail but I used pink shimmer wax instead of stencil cream. You can buy the pink wax in my online store.
The shells are adhesive transfers and foils (also available in the store).
The front of the dresser is the Mermaid transfer that is white. I also actually went in and colored on the transfer with colored waxes. I have some tutorials on my YouTube channel on how to apply transfers (Restyled Renewed). I also sell the transfers in the online store.
It all got top coated with Modern Masters dead flat varnish.
