    Very nice! But you need some sun screen or shade, you're burning up!

    You swim very well in that tail.

    The top was a white bathing suit top I had laying around.
    I mixed black acrylic paint with ALEX and coated the top. Then lay scales with an aluminum grate I got from publics (used originally for grilling on a charcoal grill).

    I heat set the whole thing and waited a few hours, once it was fairly stiff, I mixed ALEX with some gold lumiere paint I had and hand painted the scales. then heat set it again, but not too long so the alex wouldn't bubble.

    It cured in about 4 days, and then I coated it with silicone. I lay the alex kind of thick.

    Its held up REALLY well since I've started using it.
    No peeling, or discoloring while I swim.

    Your tails are awesome! I am all for you making a latex or silicone version of your awesome fabric tail! It was inspired by an eel right? And I love the owl city song!

    Their monofins WERE Lexan Polycarbonate (I think) sheets. She no longer makes these though. Now she uses legit finis and other store made monofins.

    Where did you find that image, pearl? Your link only goes to the image itself.

    I'm curious as to who put that stuff in a tail instead of a monofin.

    Fish Butts did it. Mermaasai posted that picture herself on page 2 of this thread. She took out the "monofin" they sent and put in a new one they sent her. I don't know if the new one was the same plastic board or not
