apparently they bury themselves in the sand so i would coat the whole thing with elmers and throw sand all over it. just kidding, never painted one, although the patterns are interesting. tough to tell on the underwater shots, but for the greenish blotches on the back i would try painting the back dark black or paynes grey and try sponging in a little ochre. test it first. good luck, hope it turns out.
