    I went back and edited those posts, so they should be showing up now. It is weird since I did the exact same thing for each post and some show whereas others were error messages. I can see them all. Did it work?

    Thanks, guys! Next step is waiting for So Cal to get slightly warmer water so I can take it into the ocean (most likely Catalina, La Jolla or Laguna) to start!

    This came out really lovely! I love the idea of the scales not being exactly like each other. Does look more natural.

    Catalina is a great place to swim!!!! I want to do a SoCal pod trip, I use to live/work there. My family has a summer house there and every year we take our boat over. It has so many cool coves and beaches along it!!!

    Kelly- there are plenty of Mers from California and we get together occasionally for meet ups, swimming, SCUBA, aquarium trips and craft days. Look us up on the Facebook Pod of California group.

    There may be some people who criticize that tail but damn, that thing is going to last forever! It has the most beautiful colors and is quite possibly, the most rugged tail I've ever seen.

    Back fins after I painted them to match the tail. Added gold accents to the tips.

    Back of the tail with the gold accents added. You can see the back fins primed and ready to go!
