#3 part of tutorial- Cutting out ur pattern
For me, cutting fur is a nightmare. (i use faux fur btw >.>)
but i found a technique that prevents a lot of the fur
damage that can come with using scissors on ur precious
(and expensive) fur. it takes a little for time, but well worth
it, unless u want to sacrifice cutting some fur in the process,
then go ahead
. anyways... where was i, oh right, it's easier if i bullet it out again.
I used sharp fabric scissors, these i highly
recommend for cutting ur fur, i've heard others use razor
blades with the fur placed on some cardboard and that will
prevent fur damage as well, but not everyone has a sharp
enough razor to cut through fur, and it seems sorta
dangerous if u don't know what ur doing.
Take ur fur outside, or if its raining, in ur
garage with a trash bag.
Start cutting around ur line (make sure its the
line thats one inch from ur seam line) but DON'T cut like ur
cutting paper trying to use the whole length of the scissors,
this will result in cutting off fur which is unnecessary.
instead use only the first few centimeters of
ur scissors, even millimeters if ur really patient (though
thats not necessary) and only cut at the weaved cloth part
of the faux fur that the fur is attached to (i hope that makes
sense) the base of the fur basically
this way u do not cut
off many hairs
when ur done cutting admire ur pieces of ur
tail and then shake them out so that any lose hairs will stay
in the trash (or outside... <.<) instead of all over ur house.
NOW GO INSIDE! xD lol it is necessary! and click on the next
link for the next part of the tutorial, I'm gonna be dying my fur with kool-aide to make it more brown on top, and more yellow on the bottom to match my fursona so this next step is optional
