Vinny the Chinchilla

Vinny has been created from a combination of Schulte and Tissavel synthetic fabrics with ultrasuede ears and paw pads. He has been firmly stuffed with polyfil and has a bag of plastic pellets in his tummy for added weight. Additionally his tail is filled with rubber pellets so that it can curl nicely. He is 5-way jointed and has wire armature in his body/tail and all four legs, including his cute individual fingers and toes for poseability. He has black glass eyes with cotton cord representing the eyelids. His nose and mouth have been created using perle cotton embroidery thread and his individually applied whiskers are made from hand dyed horse hair.
Vinny has been lightly airbrush shaded and scissor sculpted. He measures 8" (to the top of his head, not including his ears).
