I'm trying to decide the best way to go about making a head, I think I'd like to try carving from a single piece of foam...I've made things before from pink insulation foam (you can get it at home depot) and using the hot wire gun and various other melting devices. It tends to give off a very bad...smell..and fumes. I live in an apartment so I don't know how well that's going to go over with my neighbors. Has anyone found a less stinky product out there?
If I had a room just for suiting that would be lovely but currently I will have to try to keep my son from munching down on foam and fur. So I'm trying to be as...tidy as i can while trying to carve.
I have a glue question? What is better to use; hot glue (which I have lots of by the way) or this SUPER 77 I have been reading about? I want to try to keep costs down, but I want something also that will have good contact power and I wont feel it on my skin.
I see that alot of people make follow-me eyes. Does anyone know how to make them? I might use them for my fursuit that I am currently working one(I am making a foam-based head). Does anyone know how to make realistic follow me eyes? Like the ones Jaxx made? He made one of a black and white wolf/fox thing and its eyes were blue and they looked like good quality glass eyes.
If you know any tutorials or tips on how to make them, please post. Arigatou!
