Recommended faux fur care:
Hand wash or machine wash with cool water only. Allow to air dry or use no-heat tumble dry if using a dryer. Excessive heat will ruin and melt the fur!
How to remove creases:
1. Lay the fur piece out on a flat surface.
2. Using a hairdryer on medium heat, blow the fur fibers in the direction of the pile. You may want to use a slicker brush to help straighten the fibers.
3. After a few seconds of heat, the fibers should mostly straighten back out. Repeat over the rest of the piece and it should be mostly fixed. WARNING: Don't hold the hairdryer for too long in one spot - this will cause the fibers to MELT which will permanently ruin the fur.
Due to insufficient stock levels, this buckram is currently being delivered in the following dimensions: 9"x24". We are currently clearing out a large quantity of perfectly usable buckram which simply isn't exactly 12"x12" If the stock is zero, we'll put more up with different dimensions, adjust the price if necessary. When we're out, we'll take this message down. Thank you for your understanding :).
New: Black Buckram! Perfect for using in pupils without having to paint the buckram. Available in Loose Woven only.
Buckram is a material used in fursuits for the part of the eye that you see through. It is primarily used in toony heads, but can be used in realistic heads as well. The material is a white mesh which can have eyes drawn on with markers such as Prismacolor markers or painted with acrylic paints. Most makers will use a combination of plastic sclera (whites) of the eyes and buckram for the iris/pupil. For the plastic, we recommend either cutting up inexpensive white bowls/trash cans or using plastic sheets.
You can also make your entire fursuit eye using buckram, however, this is not recommended with the loosely woven kind of buckram - the holes in the mesh are somewhat large so that they provide excellent vision, but it will look very obviously like a mesh if large portions of the eyes are left white. If you want to make buckram eyes with sclera being buckram, we suggest buying the tightly woven kind. We only recommend this method for follow-me eyes. Flat toony eyes should almost never be made entirely from buckram.
WARNING: Tightly woven buckram is significantly harder to see through than loosely woven buckram, but it can look nicer. Buy the tightly woven kind at your own risk.
PLEASE NOTE: We are changing the way we sell buckram: Because eyes do not require very much buckram, and full yards are difficult for us to pack, we will now be selling buckram by the square foot. You will receive 1 square foot of buckram per quantity ordered.
