Here it is! What do you mers think? I am so in love with the fluke shape! <3

It looks a little plain, yes, but that is because I am going to be painting the whole thing!
I am getting it in 3 days? I'm so excited! I can swim in it the next day! EEEEEEEEEEE! :D

I like the fluke. How will you paint it? Also, the waiting is almost unbearable!

I went to wal-mart on wednesday and got the paint for my tail! I picked up a florescent blue, royal blue and silver glitter to mix with each shade of blue. Got to test it on a swatch as soon as I got home, I wish I could show it to all of you (it looks amazing!) but I have to for my laptop to get fixed (lets just say that powerade and keyboards don't go together X_x ). Have to do a few test on the swatch in the water tomorrow I will keep all of you updated! :D

I ran a few tests on the paint swatch and everything went well! The glitter did not flake off of the fabric, the paint stayed put and the colors looked amazing in the water! I am so excited about this tail. All I need to do now is take the tail in an inch or so, exchange the flipflop foot pockets for a pair of old swim fins and I can start painting :D :D :D stayed tuned for more updates!

Paint, paint, paint nonstop for 2 and a haft days. Finally, my tail is nearly finished! All I need to do now is paint the waist nude and I might add gems :)

Take a look...

Love the design on the fluke, too! Aren't you just so excited working on it? I just finished mine up about two weeks ago. I felt like a woman possessed while working on it. Although it took a lot of work (hand-sewn) the time just seemed to fly by!

It is incredible to accomplish a feat like hand-painting (or sewing) a tail :D
