Hey!
I'm kinda new here, even though I've been into mermaiding for a while.
Today i received my first full silicone tail, and i just have a question:
How the heck do i store it?!
I would really like to hear some ideas, and pictures would be lovely too!
Thanks!

There's some information in the Tail care and maintenance thread (http://mernetwork.com/index/showthread.php?3108-%E2%98%86-Tail-Care-and-Maintenance-The-Official-Thread-%E2%98%86&p=39592#post39592) on drying and storing :)

Congratulations to your first tail!
There is many threads already on how to store your tail, some hang it on the wall, some build stands to keep it open and dry.
It's best if you keep it flat, as the silicone can stick together a bit. Also don't keep it to warm. I don't have a good place for my tail yet, so it's resting on a chair with towels covering it.

Who made your tail? :)

Thanks! Really needed some help. Right now it's just lying on the dining table..

It's was the 2nd tail made by Lanyah, and it's just sooo pretty!

congrats on your beautiful tail!!! Mine lays on towels in a spare bed room with a pool noodle in it to keep it open and not to let mold grow!

Congratulations on your first tail! It's lovely! Yeah, what the other mers said. I've heard of one mer keeping it under her bed, but it was a latex tail, so that may be a different situation. I've heard of some making tail racks!

I made this rack a while back because I wanted something to go over a door. Also made some metal rings out of galvanized ducting and surgical tubing, but they're not aging well and I might redo them.
