  • "Fur" tool from Microart Studios

    So, having seen the new tool that is going to come out from Microart studios, and knowing for a fact that I am going to be doing a lot of fur in the future (space wolves) I was wondering if anyone has had a chance to test this thing out yet, I know it's not in production yet but sometimes you can find people who have pre-tested a product, and also I wanted to ask other's opinions anyway.

          Yes, that's it.

          Darklord, how much do you think this is going to be? I can't find one anywhere, and how would I go about making my own press mould? Wouldn't I still have to be able to do fur well enough on my own anyway?

            Not necessarily. All you do is find a model that has fur on it like one of the new GW plastic boars and press it into some greenstuff (make sure to cover the GS with something to stop it sticking, Vaseline is good.) That should create something like a negative of the greenstuff in the picture, the same as the blue rubber thing. After that you can use it in exactly the same way as you would the fur tool.

              I like the idear of it. I might pick one up some time. It's awesome for people like me who are ass-awful at scuplting but want to customise stuff. Hope they come up with more ideas like this!
