I just can't imagine how you smudge differently colored clays together and still save the patterns well... :) I made three hoodeds today and don't know how to place anything if I want them to feel smooth as those self colored rats... Acrylics I use only for some simple markings and colors.

Does the chalk pastel keep well in the undried clay or do you put it there after baking? I could try with soft pastels someday, because I want to do some natural agoutis also.

I take a very thin amount of the marking color that is a similar shape to the marking I am trying to copy. I place it onto the body then use a rubber tipped tool to smudge it into the correct shape. I then use the metal part of the rubber tipped tool to smooth the surface of the body and markings. I only put the chalk pastels onto un-cured/un-baked clay otherwise it would not stick.

Thanks... I try with some sculpting tools also; I still think that my clay is so rubber-like that it just can't be smudged perfectly if I place something on the smooth surface.
I must try that pastel thing.

Now I must do that "real agouti" I've dreamed quite long now but had no idea how to do the belly color. :D Then the idea could explode in my hands and tinted rats start popping everywhere. (Still, I need to test it now. Paintbrush and so.)

Don't be scared just tell people what your doing or just film you making one so we can get the general idea. I tired to make one. Don't think it turned out well.
rubygem14.deviantart.com/art/M…  Would love a tutorial though. So I could make some clay charms of my rats =D

I think you have a very good start. Did you paint it?
It may help to only use polymer clay.
