FAQsHey did you know it's really rude to go up to someone and sayFAQs3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hey I love what you're doing! I don't want to pay for it though. Tell me how to do it so I can try myself."
If I had a shop you wouldn't come into it and ask for all my secrets, would you? The same applies here. Don't get butthurt when I give you a grumpy rebuke - this is my living!
1. How do you attach the fimo to the fur?
I glue it on with hot glue or bostik multi-purpose. Some artists like to make holes in the sculpt and sew it on.

You CAN'T! It's impoooosiblleeeee. I tried masses of "confirmed" techniques, involving messy and sometimes stinky dyes, and none of them really worked. The best way I have found is to use dylon fabric paints and just brush them with a nail brush. Here's a video tutorial that is along the same lines, although I wouldn't use acrylic paint personally: http://youtu.be/RPA8Y6GcD6E My favourite method is to buy fabric in the right colour
