Default Ribbon Sculptors-dolphin anyone?

Does anyone have any idea how to make a dolphin with ribbon? I am picturing a braid kind of like some of the mermaid tails I have seen but having trouble picturing the snout part. If anyone has a clue, please fill me in. I will attempt something this weekend.
Don't have a lot of patience with sculping, but I have managed ladybugs. I also have a witch but she has no arms yet. ha ha . . .

You are on to something with the braid. For the snout I would make it kind of like the pointed leaf i on the roses but smaller and not quite the same, more pincehed together. I'm not making any sense huh?

Thanks! I am picturing it. I think that would work. Going to try this this weekend. Lordy, I hope my ADD doesn't kick in and I end up with a dolphin with no snout!

LPL Ebooks - Seahorse


here is Karyn's directions for the seahorse, thought you might take inspiration for the snout.

Drats! I thought I had 3/8 grey ribbon but it's 7/8. I will have to make a white or blue dolphin for the time being.

Thanks for the picture of the seahorse. That is the braided look I was thinking about!
