Stencil Splash Alert! Mermaid Madness

StencilGirl netted nine mermaids!

Artist and stencil designer June Pfaff Daley's mermaids swam to us first, soon joined by Cathy Nichols' and Jessica Sporn's. Now they are ready to frolic in your own painted ocean! But first, a tutorial from June and more inspiration from our designers!


Mermaidia, L544

Betcha Cannot Resist Being a Mermaid!

1. Using a white crayon, color in the stencil where you would like the mermaid resist to appear.
2. Spray with water.
3. Spray with Dylusions ink spray and watch the mermaid magically appear. Paper towel off any excess. Let dry.

4. Add type and any additional stenciling.

Just where did the mermaid get her crown? Why from the latest edition of the Crowns and Scepters Catalog, of course!

June says, “The Crowns and Scepters stencil provides an entire ‘catalog’ of crowns and scepters to adorn not only mermaids, but any creature or human who deserves a royal promotion. I couldn’t resist actually creating that fantasy catalog I kept seeing in my head!" 

With that in mind, June made several ATCS embossing gold crowns and on each subject.

Love Mermaid

Holding a heart-shaped shell to close, Cathy Nichols' Love Mermaid is sensitive to the rhythms of sea life. Use this stencil when your art needs gentle waves of tranquility.
