Hello! Sorry I am late to the party. Been busy latching hair in a major time crunch.

Curious, you said coat and paint the toes. What are you coating them with before you paint? I just got my toes today and hope to get them attached this coming weekend but trying to put everything in order in my head. I am not 100% sure how I want to trim and attach, so going through builds now to get ideas.

Looking forward to seeing the final suit. I noticed the pic with the mesh and hair and made me think I am using a smaller mesh hole then everybody else that is why I take longer. I am latching maybe 2x the hair lol. oh well, almost done now.

I coat them in flex seal and leave them black. My toes are 3 years old and still holding strong Smile

That's the hope... Spaced too much on the leg I was working and spent the weekend filling it back up. Sticking to complete row and then skip a row.. Seems to be working.
