3. Draw a mermaid shape onto the atc attaching at kewpie's waste, cover fin w/gel medium and fill in with model magic, while fresh attach pearls by pushing in pearls into it. For wand, thread floral wire w/pearls, attach to atc. Now attach rhinestones to kewpie's waste using hot glue.

Options:
-If you don't have model magic, use paper clay.
-Replace clay charm with a brass charm instead.
-Use a crystal bead for the top of the floral wire arch, I used an old barrett piece for that.

Otherwise have some fun and make an underwater adventure of your own!
