Plush Head prototype Canine by VengefulSpirits Plush Head prototype Canine by VengefulSpirits
Testing a pattern I made out of one of my own stuffed animals, I think I'm going to have to cast it again, sense I didn't sketch out the right stitching the first time.

How do I make a cast of a plush?;
I cast it, in a similar way you would do a Fursuit mask. Using a thin plastic bag and masking tape.

my second plush :la:

Its made out of scrap fabric, kinda stretchy.. not good to sew with. the prototype is kinda falling apart D'8

How does a casting help with creating a plush if you don't mind me asking?

Hi. May I say this is great! I love the concept of using a casting method. I was wondering if I could ask:
1. Do you have any tips for casting a body?
2. When casting a face, do you have any tips for making a muzzle protrude from the face instead of it remaining flat?
Thank you very much! :)

I guess for the body you could try plastic wrap, then put the tape over that.

I have not found a good way to cast the body, trust me I tried lol. I had to make a little clay figure, wrap that in tape, and cut off to get my body body pattern figured out.

well you first need to wrap the head in a thin plastic bag, then wrap the muzzle kinda like a mummy. You have to try to capture the shape, if your plush is too soft, you might have to wrap it lighter.

I guess I should make a visual tutorial some time.

I would like to try it myself, but the
explanation "using a plastic bag and masking tape"
doesn't help me much.

I like to make my plush patterns by making a sculpture out of Crayola Model Magic (a spongey, air drying clay), then covering it with masking tape. I know other people who use newspaper, etc, but I'd imagine using something as agreeable to sculpt with as clay makes much more accurate patterns.

I know your pain. When I first tried to make a pattern I used a prototype out of paper and then used the pieces to test the pattern. It worked out really well. It's also good to look at the works of others. Also see if you can find a similar pattern and adjust it till it suits your fancy.

I really love the head formation :'D it's pretty detailed and looks pretty correct too! and that's a pretty cool idea to make a plush , I've never attempted it like that , can't wait to see a final version , bet it would look great with some soft fur .
