1. Paint the mermaid coloring page with a thin layer of paint and allow it to dry. You could also color it with markers, crayons or pencil crayons.

2. Apply glue to the mermaid tail.

3. While the glue is still wet, sprinkle on sequins (use the same color as the painted tail if you can). Allow it to dry, then shake off any excess sequins.
