Hello from Dandylions! We are a small group of like minded people who all have the same passion, to work toward creating beautiful artwork. Each member of our team strives to perfect their own craft in their own way and also help the community along the way. 

Here at Dandylions, LLC we specialize in creating realistic and toony fursuits, as well as digital artwork in various styles. 

Why Patreon? Patreon would allow us extra time aside from commissioned projects to be able to hone our current techniques, and experiment with new ones to further our craft. Fursuit making is never an exact science, you can't go to the nearest fabric store and pick up a "fursuit pattern." We, as fursuit crafters, spend all of our time creating from scratch these wonderful, wearable art pieces. We develop our own patterns and techniques frequently and it keeps evolving the more we can devote additional time to trying new things! 

What's it worth to you? Are you a crafter, or an art collector? We have two tiers to cater to both! 

This Patreon is heavily dedicated to education and practice for our fellow makers. Whether you are a beginner and have never held a needle in your life, or you are more experienced and are looking for more intricate techniques and finishing practices we have something to offer you! 

"But I can just google it, or check out tutorial sites! Why should I pay you." Even before incorporating Dandylions, LLC, we had been crafting for years, 7 years of total experience now. We have scoured all online tutorial sites and learned over the years, and we are here to give you our expertise of what we have learned over these long years and how we have evolved techniques with our own twist. 

The beginner class will be approximately 2 hours once a month. The experienced class will be approximately 4 hours and occur once a month. Approximately two weeks before the next class, each patron will receive a packet for the upcoming class and what tools and materials will be necessary. 

Beginner classes will progress from the absolute basic of knowledge such as how to draft patterns, how to hand sew and machine sew, how to cut and shape foam. We will culminate these simple classes with simple weekend projects such as making your own tail or hand paws! 

The more experienced classes will also be roughly 4 hours per session, once per month. These classes will begin with more theory crafting and discussion, followed by tutorials and howtos. In these classes we will go over intricate airbrushing, various styles and builds of plastic follow me eyes, articulated tail and wing bases, LED and electronics, and so on.

Thank you for having a look at our Patreon. If you should decide to pledge your support to us we will be ever thankful and work our hardest to better ourselves and others !

As this is a new Patreon, rewards will begin in the month of January, 2016!

By donating $40 a month to Dandylions, you will be participating advanced fursuit making classes. In this tier you will need to know all of the basics of making: pattern drafting, hand and machine sewing, and foam sculpting.

In these classes you will learn some more intricate techniques that not everyone knows about. We will discuss things such as delicate airbrushing, the different styles of plastic follow me eyes, and more behind the scene things such as articulated tail and wing armatures.

As we progress through the more advanced techniques, We may work through a full piece together, such as an advanced head with airbrushing and LEDs from scratch! These projects may take more than one class session and will be discussed in any given month if that route is chosen.
