Thread: My First Latex Tail Posses :)

  1. #1

    My First Latex Kio Fish Tail Making Posses :)

    So I've been working on making my own latex mermaid tail and I though I'd share how I'm doing and maybe get advise I have my flake top done and my side fins and individual scales done. I'm trying to decide it I want to add a dorsal fin or not....I'd have to buy more clay for that but I'm thinking on it. I'm working on a Kio Fish Tail.

    I decided I want to be koi fish doitsu sanke type because I look bad in orange, but look great in red but I'm close to buying latex and want to color it. I don't know if I should go with Paint Pigment or just use the acrylic paint we already have.... I've seen both been used before but I'd like advise.

    I've always used acrylic paint to colour latex. The only colour that should use proper liquid pigment for latex is white.

    thanks awesome that save on money for me XD My family always been painter so we always have acrylic paint laying around. I'm going to be extra safe and try it out on one of my scale modes that is tiny and small so if it doesn't work not a lot of money down the toilet. :P

    Ugh, my latex is coming in today but it's taking forever!!!! I want it here so bad I hate waiting!!! :P but I will because I know my tail will be pretty in the end.
    Here are some picture of some of my plaster modes. I know their some bubble that I help to fix with adding some clay in the holes or left over plaster that will fill the hole whatever works.
