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.

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