    Does anyone have advice on how to make a swimmable net belt? I've never made one before, and all of the YouTube videos I've seen are too (I don't really know how to put it) harsh, ummm, sailor-y, basically not as girly as I would like mine. Any tips would be good!

    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but the MagicCrafter has this one on her youtube channel.

    I have bought my mermaid top on Amazon and my mermaid sister Alesha Amor made it into an amazing mermaid top she had to altered it a lot because the bust size is too big now its fits great

I'll take a photo of them tonight, if you like...they are going to be available in my Etsy shop!
    Have you got a link to your Etsy ship please

    Is there any clays safe to use for underwater use or is it all about the sealer over it? I was thinking of using polymer clay and then sealing it

    polymer clay, like Fimo, that you have to bake in an (normal) oven, will become a hard plastic and is waterproof then. I made my locket for Coco that way and already swam with it.
