How DO you make those Animal Costumes? (Fursuits)
Colors on Buckram

Ok so I am doing a different style of eyes for Skittle, similar to Mixed Candy's stationary plastic eyes. However, prisma color markers never give the rich color that LatinVixen gets with those suits so I was wondering if paint was what she used.

How do you get those nice colors on buckram?

We use paint pens :). I tend to stick to the deco color paint pens you can find at Michaels, they don't seem to clog the pores. Plus your eyes will not bleed if water or alcohol touches them like markers would :).

I thought it might be paintpens! Can you find the type you use at JoAnns and how much are they generally?

Not sure if they sale them there. They tend to be about $3 per pen, depending on the size some are more. But they last a very long time, as we have not bought some for a while.

Alrighty. The colors I need are rather simple to get ahold of so, they should hopefully have them there.

I just used regular acrylics. As long as you don't goop it on (which you shouldn't do anyway, since it won't give you clean lines that way), it shouldn't clog the mesh.
