Video! How to make the base of a Mermaid Gourd tail

This video is old, but it shows how I fused white tissue paper and 2-d ephermera, them stamped, and painted the fused paper to create a tail for my mermaid gourd sculpted doll.

 

 

 

After I created the fused tissue paper I created a wire tail shape, and paper mached it to a banana gourd to finish my mermaid’s tail.

 
Here is a picture of the finished mermaid gourd:
