|If I don't answer your question, it's probably because it's in this FAQ, so please read!|
What do you use to make the hair?
So far, I mainly use felt.
How do you do it?
I cut a myriad of pieces of felt, and hot glue them onto the head. I have techniques to create volume; you can read the guide here: www.jlauportfolio.com/hairtuto…
Are the eyes hand painted?
Yes! See my tutorial for more info.
Do you make your own patterns?
Indeed I do, and always have. I can't seem to follow someone else's blueprints. My pattern-making tutorial can be found here: pheleon.deviantart.com/art/How…
Can you post a plushie pattern?
I have one here: fav.me/d1vmo2q .
Can you post a different plushie pattern?
Sorry, but no. Patterns are a plushmaker's lineart.
What material do you use for the body of the plushie?
Mostly, I use lycra because it's smooth the paint on. However, I also use craft velour and bucksuede on the occasion.
How can your plushies free-stand?
The ones who can are generally the proportional ones. Although, the main factor is that the body parts are aligned with their center of gravity; something as small as the foot being too forward may disable them from keeping balance.
How long does it take you to complete a plush?
It depends. If I really work hard, I can complete 2~3 10" plushies in a day. (but that's when I'm constantly working, and the design isn't that complex)
Are you open for commissions?
Check my journal for updates.
