How To Stuff A Flexi Tail?
« on: February 18, 2017, 12:43:06 am »
I might need to do a commission for someone. They want a flexi Floor dragger tail. Almost I guess like a dutchie tail but without spikes :3 What type of stuffing should I use? And how should I stuff it?(Lighty or filled but still flexi) Thats all i need. Im not needing to do tails with like spikes, feathers, scales etc. Pile size on the fur is about 1-1.5 inches. But ye, Thanks!!!

(Use this link for a example of what I want to make without spikes/feathers and those colors)

I think any ol stuffing will work, I have a rat tail that I wanted kinda flexible so I lightly stuffed  although its not a floor dragger but has a nice wiggle compared to if I tightly stuffed it, plus less stuffing is less stress on the belt loops(belt and pants).
Tightly stuffed tails tend to be stiff, heavy, and lose their shape in my experience.
