    Some last minute resize issues since I lost so much weight lately has ruined the scale pattern at the front a bit but Iím already working to fix the area with dragon scales like I drew so long ago!

    Thanks sooooo much I sooo canít wait to swim in him for the second time! I swam it last year to test the extension it took me most of that time to finish a tail commission and last three months Iíve been working on this non stop every day well night lol and it is been soo worth it I wish I was faster though and needed less freaking sleep I would be able to do so much!

    Beyond stoked! Itís very hard not taking him out for His first swim but I donít want it to be humid while in the box on the plain itís already heavy enough dry lol

    WOOOWWW, that's sooo cool. A-MA-ZING
    Just a question from a very new tailmaker: how much (more less) did you spend on the making of your tail? Because I have already spent quite a lot of money and I'm just making the mold, haven't bought the dragon skin yet

    Honestly between all materials including plaster for mold and powdered pigments and paint thinner and throw away brushes and painting cups and paper towels etc. 1200 estimate but I honestly didnít count cause this particular tail took me about idk 4.5 years since I started this thread ?! Now that I have it Iím about to begin the creation of the second generation! Iíve learned so much with all the trials I went through and all that I learned from it I am confident in my best steps for sure it wonít be so long this time and Iíll keep track of everything so I can do a comprehensive breakdown.

    Thank you soooo much and enjoy your fabulous artwork (sorry for my poor english).
    Just another thing, which silicone did you use? I was looking for dragon skin, as I said, is that the best option?

    I used dragon skin for the scales and layered silicone and neoprene for the build
