2nd try at a badger claw. by melesmeles-faber 2nd try at a badger claw. by melesmeles-faber
18/10/2011 This might just be useful for the brambles...... :-)

DO NOT TRY THIS, UNLESS YOU ARE SURE YOU ARE NOT ALLERGIC TO LATEX!

20/10/2011 it might be worth another try...I'll paint the fingers for about 4 layers seperately, and then stick them together, this means that there will be solid 'tunnels' for each finger in the finished glove, and they won't break appart as in the present glove..... Also will stick on my solid latex claws!![link]

That looks pretty good! Very beastly-looking paws there.
Perhaps polymer clay will work for claws if you don't want them collapsing or sticking to each other. They'd each need a sturdy base surrounded by latex though.

Thank you! :) I've seen that clay for sale, I'll give it a try for those claws, now you recommend it! The claws will have to be even longer than the one's here, badgers front claws are for digging. If I make some for my feet, they 'll be about the length of those here.....Thanks for that advice!

No problem! Polymer clay is what I usually use for claws and teeth, and it's always been an easy product to use. A little bit of it goes a long way too! A little more than a standard 56g block is probably enough for all of the claws on both hands. If you can find even larger blocks for a discount (especially if it's FIMO Soft), that would be a great investment. Soft polymer clay is easier to knead with fingers, and really I don't see much of a difference between cooked regular polymer clay and cooked soft polymer clay.

Interesting! I'll see what the local DIY has on offer, or order on the internet.....
