not "toy" durable, i wouldn't give them to kids to play with. Best suited for display. I like to make stuff that is highly detailed and more like artwork. There are other artists though that make dolls that are more toy-like and meant to be durable and played with. :iconwormsandbones: for example makes awesome durable poseable dolls.

thank you so much! I have bean looking at that fur for a few years but could not afford to get it shipped to Australia, and then forgot about it.
now that the astralien dolor is doing so well the $200 shipping price dose not seem that bad as the fur is so cheep to begin with.

you may be wandering why you have 200 page views to day and yesterday that because i was arsking arund the furry comunety to see if any one has seen this fur and new were to get it from. i hope you do not mind the extra page views.

here is another place i've seen the feather fur: [link]
they only have brown though, and according to them the manufacturer is discontinuing it. :( too bad, its a pretty unique fur.

This is LOVELY. The shape of the beak and the way the fur lays on the body are simply genius!
I've been asking around, but I keep getting tutorials on how to cast plastic.
I'm wondering how you attach the clay head to the fur body! Is there a wedge in the clay that you fit the fabric around and glue? Or am I missing it by a long shot? Can you help me out?

:iconkimrhodes:
kimrhodes Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2010  Professional General Artist
Not much to it, The clay head is hollow so i glue the fabric to the inside edge of the clay.

:iconun-do:

And it will hold pretty well? What kind of glue do you use?

(ps= thanks so much!!!)

:iconkimrhodes:
kimrhodes Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2010  Professional General Artist
Hot Glue, it is awesome. just make sure if your glueing fur that you press it down pretty good so the glue goes down to the base of the fabric and is not just sticking to the ends of the fur

You've done a fantastic job with that. I like how it's a kind of crest on the back of the neck, and then that really nice ruff of fur covering the griffin's chest. Feathering on any animal, be it dog or horse or griffin, is a weak spot of mine. Wish I could afford the little creature!
