Tutorial: Making short fur by brushing fleece


Rara for short :)
Fleece in untouched form is not a very good alternative to faux fur, but I discovered on the internet that you can turn it into pretty good short fur simply by brushing it with a dog brush!

It looks like this (brushed part in the first image is at the bottom):

I'd say it looks pretty good, which is great because fleece is much cheaper than fur and stretches more too, so it could be possible to make skintight suits with this.

I would have straightened it if I had a hair straightener to see if I can give it an even better texture. Might buy one tomorrow and update with results. Btw you actually can straighten oil based synthetics, you just have to use low heat and be quick.

What do you think?
