    I'll probably need to cover the whole body in silicone, not just the scale outline. But I'm not sure if it will keep from peeling away from the fabric.

    I'm really loving this tail thread. Blue tails are a huge weakness of mine.

    Wow you've out done yourself in this. The tail looks gorgeously elegant plus its the same colors I want for my tail.

    Hmmm...as for your fabric tail. I don't know if there's much to be done to save it. Might be worth keeping to experiment on!

    OMG! Your tail is going to be AMAZING!!!!! Question, how much silicont does it take to make a scaled silicone tail? Also, how do you get the proper size for your leg dummy, I would be afraid mine would end up too bit with the stretch of the silicone...
