Thread: Mermaid Liara's grand sequin tail project

    Mermaid Liara's grand sequin tail project

    Hi everyone!

    Ever since seeing @mermaidceline 's beautiful sequin tails, I've wanted one of my own. After a year of researching and planning, the moment is finally here: I am going to make my own sequin tail! In this thread I will regularly post updates.

    I am going to use Mermaid Ilonka's method for my sequins, found her thread here a while ago. I am going to use glitter vinyl for the fluke and neoprene for the body. The sequins were provided by @odyceastudios. This is a new tailmaking company definitely worth checking out!

    Without further ado, here is my tail design!



    The name of my tail shall be RISING PHOENIX! Credit for the design goes to @theamsterdammermaid She makes amazing tail designs for a reasonable price, find her on insta

    I am so excited!

    Can't afford the monofin yet, so I made a template of the monofin I want to use. It's the Waterway Mermaid. I wanted a big monofin with good propulsion, feet close together and a natural mermaid shape.

    The template will come in handy when I cut the fluke.

    Still a little foldy, but here's my fluke! It is SO fun to look at. Really happy with how it came out. And it glitters like crazy, the photos don't do the glitter justice!

    Afraid not If this project is a big success I might open the occasional commission, but honestly I doubt it.

    Here are photos of the sequins I will use, by the way . Of the first photo I will only use the yellow and orange sequins. I loved the tone of the red sequins, but they didn't survive my chlorine test nor my sandpaper test, so I can't use them for a tail, or anything, really. The yellow and orange sequins made it through all the tests, and I love them. I had a hard time finding proper red colored iridiscent sequins. Many of them have a blue-purplish sheen. That's not a look I want for this fiery tail. The red sequins are the most important for my tail. After searching my fins off I found the red sequins from the 2nd photo. They are a deep, fiery , shiny red and I am in love with them. They survived all tests I subjected them to. They are SLIGHTLY transparent, but since I have a red base for my body, that won't matter. I will not use the orange ones from the second photo, because they are TOO transparent.
