I've been toying with my new blog lately. I would love to post some tutorials. I always found other people's tutorials very interesting and stimulating, and I wish to share my little experience. As I'm at the 'nose' stage now in my bear, a NOSE tutorial it is!
This is my first tutorial ever, I would love some feedback!
It's extremely generous of you to be so giving with info for others...and it's a great tutorial. I have done this method too..but I use apoxie resin. I don't put the eye in I just stitch through the nose and mould it on to the muzzle...let that harden off then put another smooth layer of 'nose' on to it. The fact that apoxie resin self cures and sticks to anything means you can blend it in with the fabric. I have even felted fibres through it while its still soft and it worked quite well.
Brilliant tutorial Francesca, very easy to understand with clear photos.I'm inexperienced and have never tried this type of nose but your clear instructions give me confidence to give it a try.
I think your tip on how to avoid trapping fur in knots is excellent, look forward to more great tutorials in the future.
Thanks very much .
