Fins are difficult to make look jsut right ,but you can make realistic ones with practice and the right material.
have you tried the fantasy film and fine wires?

thnx a lot for the link!!!i decided to use mostly clays on my mermaid project..i want to minimize the "fantasy" on it..and dont want mymermaid to look like the rest of mermaid dolls on the net..that really is a challenge..i have another problem..recently i added some patch of clay on already baked clay and it turned out looking different..i mean the color..and it really ruined the part..tragically it's on her torso..is there anything i can do??

The clay gets darker and yellower each time you cure it. best thing to do is under cure it the first time. Not cure it as hot or as long and add your second bit of clay. Then when your finished, do the final full cure time.
Also it helps when baking to cover parts with foil to keep them from darkening as much. If you do this you have to be careful of course.
if you have a light patch you can use a heat gun and a mask/stencil to apply heat only to the whiter clay. Or you can disguise it with paint.
