Thread: Making Seawing: My First Full Silicone Tail!

    Making Seawing: My First Full Silicone Tail!

    My friend MerQueen Nerissa designed me a beautiful tail that I am now bringing to life! So far I have made my scale molds and some scales, made a mold for my mini side fins, and have drawn out my fluke and big side fins. I'm using the Mahina Merfin for my fluke and the Pearlie Mae method when making my scales. It's so exciting to see them pinned on my body cast!!!Name:  rsz_img_0680.jpg

    No, I'm just making this tail for myself. I only know what I'm doing because MerQueen Nerissa is guiding and teaching me throughout the process. She is an amazing friend!

    Thank you everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Here's some pictures of where I'm at now. I have the entire front sealed and almost all of the back pinned. Name:  rsz_img_0691.jpg

    I've pinned them on and I attach them by putting silicone under each one. When it cures the scale is stuck to the power mesh under it and the scales touching it.

    Holy carp! You've moved along so quickly! This only ispires me to do a silicone in the Pearlie method when I get the funds! <3 This is so gorgeous I can't wait to see it completed!!!
