Two-tone Veevus Quill Body Nymph by Hans Stephenson

Hans ties up a pattern he calls the Two-tone Veevus Quill Body Nymph and introduces a relatively new materiel called Veevus Body Quill. The body quill is a wide translucent mylar thread. It makes for a nice body material as it has translucence and allows the color underneath to affect the final color. It is thin and gives a realistic appearance. The mylar is stronger than stripped peacock quill, but you can cement the quill to add some extra durability.

The Two-tone Veevus Quill Body Nymph is a simple pattern, and you can do some experimenting with the body colors as it is available in 15 colors.
