Has anyone worked with Punky Muppet fur from Mendels and also worked with shag fur from Syfabrics? I was wondering what you thought of the quality of the fur.
I recently got in some swatches of both and to me Mendels fabric seems less quality than Syfabrics. I also noticed that the turquoise color is the same fabric from both dealers, but SyFabrics is cheaper. The white punky muppet from Mendels seems to be a shinier color but the pile doesn't seem to be as fluffy as the SyFabrics shag fur.
Any opinions or recommendations?
I figured that you all would know this better than any of my local friends.
I have a fursuit to make and I'd love to use DF's sparkle fur but my only concern is; can it be airbrushed? If anyone has worked with this fur, can you give me some tips and if not should I just go with some other type of fur.
After weeks of debate with my self I have finally decided to do my Umbreon head with the all foam method. The only question I have is the thickness of foam I should use, I have some left from Micheal's which is 1in thick but I' mot sure the length I have is long enough at the moment so either way I'm going to have to buy more(but at least at Joann's I have a 40%off coupon x3) I'm sure half will be lighter but will it breath a little better as well? Since I have glasses which I can't see farther an 2 ft ahead of me without I know I have to leave space for them and I think the 1in will make the head look a little too big being it already has to fit my 23in head. I plan on, when I have to, using a method of putting it in a pillowcase in the washer(Jill Costume made a video of it) will the half inch not be able to take it? Cause surely it would dry quicker.
Oh! And is there a specific way I should fur the jaw if it is to be moving?
