    Iíve been silently watching this thread and I just discovered your Instagram and followed.
    Sorry to see that the scale/shell sequins you ordered werenít clear, have you thought of buying in bulk directly from a manufacture? I was going to make a sequin tail a couple years ago (but ended up never sewing the sequins on so I sold them) and I bought directly from a manufacture in China... they have loads of colors and sizes, super friendly and helpful and depending on the size of the sequins you get at least 12,000 each bag!

    After a test swim with the monofin I realized itís to floaty and I needed to remove a bunch of foam and use swim flippers. Does anyone know where I can get waterproof foam? The foam I used got filled up with water. And it took forever to dry :0

    You could try neoprene or silicone caulk to fill in the gaps.

    Fabric and silicone are now attached to each other.

    The scales I ordered for this tail were to yellow. So I ordered some new ones. (Several few ones actually) and when they arrive I will choose the best one and order a bulk of them.

    So Iím kinda stuck on waiting for the scales.

    Might work on the back fin while waiting


    ^_^ happy swimming
