DecoArt Media Under The Sea Challenge

I had a bunch of fun creating an entry for the Deco Art Media Challenge. It’s called under the sea and I knew exactly where I wanted to go with this!!!

I used the Deco Art Americana acrylic paint line, Deco Art Modeling Paste as well as the new Deco Art Metallic Lustre in Rose Gold.  A complete list of all the paints used is at the bottom of this post.

I took a paper mache mannequin (see below) and glued random under the sea objects with the random stash molds I have been collecting and yes that includes those cool fish scale as part of her bustier. I then painted the entire piece in Deco Art Americana Coastal waters, Deep turquoise and Soft Jade. I then went back and hand painted each object on her bodice using Americana.


***Fresh technique alert*** I then did a lightbulb went off in my head technique where because the mannequin is an odd shape laying a stencil flat is near impossible. So light bulb wet off and I took parts of the seaweed stencil and drew an outline from it which I then fussy cut and blobbed on < << (Random Artist 222 word) some of Deco Art’s modeling paste. I love how it takes color. I let those piece dry then glued them on in a manner that made me smile 😀



Ta Daaaa, the final outcome 😀

  1. Coastal Waters
  2. Chartreuse
