Kilmouski in 1: 12 Scale Test # 1

Kilmouski thought he should pose for my next miniature cat. He assured me that his likeness would be a good seller on eBay.

So armed with my new dyes I made an effort to color the light gray Alpaca fibers to resemble his coat. I am pretty sure this new experiment didn't make him very happy. He says he has more black through his fur. The problem is, it is necessary to add a bit of water to the dye so it doesn't dry crusty. To get a real fade to black for the tips of the hair on his coat, I am going to need a lot of practice.

Siberians have three coats. The third coat are guard hairs. They are sort of feel oily. The Guard hairs keep that breed from getting wet. It is very hard to give them a bath because of it too.
