This one was fun. I discovered that if you dilute paint to a coffee creamer thickness and brush it into light fur with a tooth brush, then use a metal pet brush on it when it’s dry, you can make it as soft as the rest of the fur fabric. ^_^ On dark colors I still have to paint till the fur is stiff though. I wish I could get a hold of whatever factories use to paint designs on their fabrics and toys. **update** The person who ordered this 'no-longer exists' acording to the emails that have been bounced back, so if any one wants this griffon, send me an email.
