    Thank you Shapeways. I can't say enough good things about you guys. I know I pushed the design rules to the limit on this one and honestly I wasn't expecting the fur to be as crisp as the original but it is. Once again, you guys came through.

    Weight is 27.35 grams

    Yeah I know. Been working on several projects at the same time. heh.. I gotta stop doing that. Anyways, this was printed in standard silver since the fur is pushing the design limits, I didn't do silver glossy. I would have taken more time on the patination but my niece wanted it as soon as she seen it. LOL... I made it for her for getting a 4.0 GPA...

    Very nice. And what did you use to patinate it - LoS or something else?

    I use the solid but have wanted to try the gel! Another option which I still have yet to try is this: Take a couple of hard-boiled eggs, cut open and place in small airtight container along with your piece you wish to patinate. Over a few hours (days?) the sulpher from the eggs is supposed to do the trick! Much better for the environment, too :)

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Took me some time to get the fur to where I like it.
