Re: Hares masks

Ray yes I do pretty much the exact same process as you but I do a few things differently you may or may not want to try... 1. I use a .99 cent flea comb rather than a brush.

Re: Hares masks

@hankaye that's a great idea! Ya I actually assume it's ear wax/blood since it's always in the same spot at the base of the ear but it doesn't seem to soften in hot water and dawn and I didn't know if animals had ear was haha. I'll try that next time.

Hares masks

I'm kind of a fur junkie. Ok...hoarder. I always wash, condition, brush and "primp" all of my skins and masks. You get SUCH a better product! I have several hares masks in several colors and they have all had this black, hard, nasty crap matted in the fur on the outside edge of the mask ri...

Re: Chadwicks 477

Wsbailey- HOLY CRAP man you have a whole card?!? And a big card at that. That's awesome! The upavon 477 is actually what made me start this thread. I think it looks pretty close too. I'm still undecided on how I feel about the semperfli 477. Jcwillow777-yes in my opinion the oyster colored spin drif...

Re: Kimono!

Hahaha old hat glad I could be the Judas goat for ya! The colors are also plenty good enough. Whose to say any old orange, pale yellow, or "wine" colored silk isn't just fine, regardless if it's even close to Pearsall's or not. We only use that as the standard because that's what our prede...

Chadwicks 477

Sorry guys but i wasn't sure where to put this and it's technically about nymphs so here we go... I'm looking for opinions from the true nerds. It seems 477 replacements whent from a cult following to pretty mainstream. First a select few were out there and it was people meticulously searching yarn ...
