Hi everyone!
Recently I got an airbrushing set so that I can learn how to add depth and gradients to my plushies.
I'm wondering what's the best paint to keep the soft texture of the fur? I know brushing it out it's a huge factor, but what brands has everyone been most successful with for synthetic furs:
I've heard of Creatix and Badger paints, but also hear they have to be mixed with something?
This paint business ended being more than I expected to get into..

For the bear I'm working on right now someone requested if they could see a bear with a bigger nose. I know I can make the nose part look bigger with sculpting the muzzle, and well making a bigger nose to finish it up. But I was wondering if anyone has altered the gusset piece to make the make the top of the nose actually be larger before sculpting.
I cut the gusset out and left a bit thinking about attempting to try to look but I was a little skimpy on my seam allowance and don't want to chew up the edge too much tuging and pulling on it in all those way size I don't have the fabric to replace it :/

Just seeing if anyone has attempted this/ has any examples  or tips

I am useing Goldie's pattern.

My first Mini-bear, I think she needs a bow or a hat now! I was very happy about the mohair pile and made a mini out of excitement, a lot more challenging then I anticipated!!

I made my first mini yesterday once I got in this amazing sparse mohair.. First time useing a real bear mohair instead of fur or faux fur. I'm so happy with the result. I plan on playing around a little more with the belly and maybe add a bow to her head. I've name her Noel Rose

The bigger bear is named Berry Punch

Hey everyone. I am not so new to bear making although I haven't done it very much. This year I am going to try to recreate my life and it's going to involve a lot of bear making.
I hope to be around to partake and learn in your wonderful community.
This is George he was a gift I made for someone I loved that has returned to me and he is my biggest inspiration and I hope I make him many new friends.
