My mums mermaid has a makeover - D

Hello everyone

I was going through my mums things who passed away 2 years ago and found her mermaid ornament who looked pretty sad and lifeless.  I have only just starting looking through her stuff - taken me this long and the pain does not really lessen, not for me anyway.  Ok so I have decided to give this a makeover and will be placing in my bedroom.

I used brown paint, dry brushed all over using cream and then highlighted using inka gold.

What do you think?
