Thread: Fabrics, Latex and Silicone mermaid tails !

  1. #1

    Fabrics, Latex and Silicone mermaid tails !



    All original designs and conceptions are the property of Mercurious (for example, HH dispositive, Liratail or the Galaxy color)

    Sorry for my english if I did mistakes, this isn't my native language. Please, this thread is reserved to people from Europe (or other people all over the world who can pay horrible shipping costs ) cause I live in France.

    Fabric tails

    I can make a tail based on the design you want, with the monofin you want ! It only takes one week for me to make one ! Prices depend of your design and measurments.

    Latex tails

    Advantages: Lower price than a silicone tail, paint job easier so less expensive to do and more possibilities to do special painting designs.
    Disadvantages: less durable than silicon (which has a lifetime of virtually unlimited), it only lasts a few years. Less shiny than silicone, but compensates with metallic colors available.

    °~Available Designs~°

    One scale pattern available (3D scales)
    Tail size : Tailor-made
    3 to 5 different fin designs (Liratail, as mine, Splash, Dol-fin, or custom design !)
    You can add additionnal fins (dorsal, pectoral or heel fins)
    Colors is as your own will !

    All imaginable colors are available ! Iridiscent or matt !

    A latex tail can cost from 300$ to 600$, depending to your design and measurments.


    Silicone tails

    °~Available Designs~°
    One scale pattern available (3D scales)
    Tail size : Tailor-made
    3 to 5 different fin designs (Liratail, as mine, Splash, Dol-fin, an exclusive h2o fluke, or custom design !)
    You can add additionnal fins (dorsal, pectoral or heel fins)
    Colors is as your own will !

    All imaginable colors are available ! Iridiscent or matt !

    A silicone tail is made with Dragon Skin silicone on a spandex base-coat (can be on neoprene but more expensive), painted with psycho paint, and can cost from 600$ to 1600$, depending to your design and measurments.

    Option
    HH dispositive : The HH (Hide-Heel) dispositive was invented to hide your heels. It does not disturb you during swimming but the tail is harder to put on your legs. The HH dispositive require the mold of your heels or to accept a basic version for everyone but not so well-fitted than a molded HH.

    My first silicone mermaid tail (Liratail without 3D effect, 3D scales, 5 colors: dark blue, turquoise, silver, gold, white, h2o style dorsal fin, worst silicone ever !)















    Photos of working progress and tails soon ! For more information go to my website : http://mercurious.forum-gratuit.tv/
    I will add the english part soon !

    Thanks I hope too ! I don't know if there are a lot of professional taimakers in Europe...Are there some or not at all ? Pictures soon, I just need to by my epoxy and my plasteline to do the molds !

    Special sales ! You just pay the costs of material if you buy a latex or a silicone tail this summer !

    How much would it be for a silicone tail? Oh and is it silicone/latex over neoprene or just silicone/latex? Sorry for all the questions!

  6. #6
    No problem ^^ Silicone and latex are over Lycra, a thick spandex, but if you prefer neoprene, maybe can I find some. (check out my first silicone tail made only with bad silicone and lycra in "show us your tail thread") It'll just be more expensive !

    I need to finish all my molds to give you the real price of a silicone tail. Just wait a week and I'll tell you

    My plan is to buy a tail once I lose a bit of weight (so hopefully before summer is over) and I may be interested in a silicone tail I'll be very interested to see pictures, I couldn't find my way around the website because I don't know French Do you have an estimate on shipping to the US, I live in Michigan. Thanks!

    once you have it all together you should contact www.mermaidtails.net and have your site posted there

  9. #9
    No, I don't think so cause it's not really a website, it's a forum, like mernetwork, but I'm gonna open a webshop on etsy I think... Shipping to us...It depends of the weight of the tail...More than 30-40$, I'm sure of this. I'm gonna open an english part on my website, just wait a bit (I'm working on my molds, and my future studies, location, administrativ papers, etc...)
