Personally I prefer the shorter type, unless possibly going the elder pred look. Shorter seems like it would make more sense for an active hunter, whereas the longer would look better for a less active elder. Just my $.02!
I could have sculpted in clay or better, wax for this, let it sit cool then mold but this was readily available. if doing it again I think I'd go microcrystaline wax or a really hard wax based clay and carve them polish before molding.That's good thinking! Was about to ask if you coated some base with latex or what medium you utilized.
Fayne My choice would be the second ones....why because more finer when carrying props at conventions. I use polymer soft clay to make my claws for example. This clay I buy it directly from JAPAN
shogun you read my mind.Fayne yes or i just have an idea! You could always use the longest for the teeth, what do you think?
