Merimaid Milly Painting

I decided to tat in white, and paint the colors on, No matter way Jane's "Tat And See" was. I could use colors accordingly. 
Hopefully Janemactats doesn't mind me using the name Milly it is a cute name :)

I used size 10 thread for the hair

Start with acrylic paint and water down, this is very permanent 
I used to tie dye, it will not wash out.


I couldn't wait so blotted dry.  Some color bleeding when on, but not too bad  

I did both sides.

I actually made a mistake in the beginning of tatting her for I thought the shuttles that were already laced with thread were same size but one was 40 and the other was 20 but she seems okay especially to experiment on anyway!
I actually have more ideas for her will is if I get round to it.
Like that beautiful Clam shell that is a free pattern floating around in cyberspace.
Thank you Jane for the fun!
Have great week all.
