What fun! Another custom cornhole board project.

I was asked to paint a couple of mermaids on cornhole boards for a birthday present. My husband built the boards and did all of the basic painting to get them ready for me. I then sketched the design on with pencil, then outlined in black paint.

I always fill in the background first. For these we decided to do sunset colors like I use on my hand painted benches.

The next step is blocking in the colors then adding detail and highlight.  I really enjoy these cornhole board projects because it gives me an opportunity to use really bold designs and bright colors.
