My Mother had gotten this Marine guide and my kids like to look at them.

I really like all the varieties of starfish and sea urchins.

I love beachy decor and love all the RED CORAL out there.

I found a resin faux piece of coral but it was rather ugly in its resin state.

In my excitement I forgot to take a picture.

  • FIRST I painted it in a FLAT White paint, so the reds would take in varying shades.  This is necessary –you need that chalky layer before you add in your red paints.
  • I grabbed a variety of red craft paints and went to town painting it.

I allowed some paints to mix, some to be lighter and others darker in order to create a more authentic looking piece.

I love coral – so pretty! Isn’t it fun when one of the kids get so interested in something? I always wonder how that will play out in lift/career 20 years from now. Happy Mother’s Day! xo Bev
