favor to ask
I have this gray grizzly fox tail that is Thorn's color but instead of a dark gray/black tip it has a white tip. Would anyone be willing to airbrush it for me? I'll pay for shipping and all that jazz, I just don't have an airbrush =/

Please lemme know.

You could propably buy a small can of spray paint.

true, im worried about the fur sticking together though...although that probably would happen with an airbrush. do you have any experience with spraypaint?

It depends on how you apply it and what kind of spray. They usually use about the same sort of paint for airbrushes. Yeah, we used airbrushes and spray paint in art classes, the only realy difference for us was the amount of control.

so do you think the hair will stick together if i use spray paint?

I'd imagine (becuase I've never used it on fur) if you stood at a distance, so it "dusted" it, and then let it dry without touching it, you'd have a good chance of the fur being safe.

Now that I think about it, I'd recommend, since it has a white tip, using regular black hair dye.

thats actually a very good idea, that way it will give it kind of a brownish tint and not a "blue" tint that so many of the fabric dyes have and it will be better for real hair/fur =) I think I'll do that then

I would think so. You should just got to WalMart and buy a little vial of Rit Dye.. just make a little bowl of black and keep dipping it in until it turns dark.

so this will work for a real fox tail?

Oh! I thought it was like.. actyllic fur. Mebbe you can just use regular hair dye then? I think vegetable dye works pretty well on fur, too.
