new cast WIP by Sharpe19 new cast WIP by Sharpe19
One thing I do with every new cast is I make a prototype before I offer them up for commisison. This is the newest cast. It's much larger than my other wolves, a lot more detail. This one is showing a WIP of drybrushing, an alternate method to airbrushing involving acrylic paint, paint brush, water, and yer hands to blend. It takes longer, less materials, and it's a bit more controlled. I have worked on this more since then. It has resin teeth, glass following eyes made by *Qarrezel and fur from several different places including DF and I'mstuffedfur. Sculpted and textured lip soon to follow. This will be for sale upon completion. (so keep an eye out later today for a journal)

Airbrushing is good. Dry brushing is really handy if it's too cold out to airbrush or you don't have the room/supplies. It's really easy to learn too :) Perhaps I'll live stream me doing it some time so folks can see.

Have you never done/heard of dry brushing fur before? You're a fursuiter I'd assume you'd know about it.

Resin has nothing to do with the fur. Sharpe19 has drybrushed fur and painted it on foam masks too. Just saying.

It's still super weird that you make all these fursuit/cosplay groups when you're so novice.

OHH sorry bad English (I know you use a paint brush to put it on, but dose'nt it like stick the fur together a bit like hair gel, since its like thick paste? or do you like have a different type of acrylic?)

Sharpe19 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2010  Professional Artisan Crafter
With any paint or dye it will stick the fur together a bit. You need to brush it to avoid most of that from happening.

It will make the fur clump and stick together if you don't pay attention to what your doing. If you're careful and make sure not to use too much, and brush the fur to separate the hairs while you're working then it's a great way to color fur. It's really time consuming though.
