#1365 TECHNIQUE DISCUSSION: Fur techniques

Whether it’s our woolly dog, a wild lion, or a docile bantha, we all love our furry friends. In today’s post, we’re looking at a few different ways that builders have replicated soft, shaggy fur using hard, plastic LEGO - not an easy task!

@vincentkiew73 cleverly uses both the modified 1x2 rock fingers element for a lion’s mane, as well as several plates with vertical teeth to create shorter tufts of fur. @dsodb_lego meanwhile uses cattle horn pieces and claw pieces, clipped to hang vertically, to replicate the long, clumpy fur of a Bantha. @_luispg__ also uses rock fingers, in addition to quarter tiles, to create a cute and compact Bantha. And finally, @brothersteven100 has a great technique for those without too many rock finger elements—you can use the very common grille tiles and plates with clips and approximate shaggy fur!
