Gloves: Patterns, Molds, Shaving

I have a whole pile of questions for you guys, mostly about the gloves I'd like to build.

1. First, gloves. I'm unsure about how to make three-dimensional things. I've been told that the best way is to disassemble a glove, but I have a very hard time finding gloves that fit me. Will using a tracing of my hand for a pattern work at all?

2. I've seen ads for "make a lifecast of your hand!" kits. They looks like it could be useful for making more complicated gloves. Does anyone have any experience with that?

3. How well does tool dip hold up on the bottom of a shoe?

4. What do you use when you need to shave fur?
