Silicone Granite Birdcat Tongue
Made with high quality silicone and dyes, and the color is dyed through, so no worries of it rubbing off (not that it will rub on anything after being installed)
These are very squishy and life-like. Granite tongues are dyed and have granite powder mixed in, giving them a stony look.
If you want to send in a fur or fabric sample, or even a paint sample for us to match, sure! Just send us an e-mail to arrange it. This has to be done BEFORE the order is placed!
If you choose the 2 or more color option, choose the "Comment in box" color, and in the box type out what colors, and the pattern you want them in. (example: Pink with shadow grey granite front black with blue granite back, or Pink with blue granite with black with shadow grey granite dapple, green with green granite with blue with blue granite stripe, etc) 3 stripes MAX on these tongues. Each stripe counts as a "color", so if you want 3 stripes, you HAVE to choose the 3 color option. If you choose 2 colors but want 3 stripes, we'll only do two.

*Bubbles/unrefined areas are a normal occurrence on the bottom of the tongues. This will not effect the appearance once these tongues are installed* Basically scratch up the area on the jawset real good, and then glue the tongue down.
Make sure to leave the fabric attached to the bottom of it!
Size: 3"L and 1.5"W, stands 1.5" raised. These fit with our birdcat blanks.
*Facts about silicone that are good to keep in mind!*
Silicone is squishy, so the tongues will have a very lifelike appearance and feel.
You can "pierce" these tongues due to their soft nature.
Silicone items cannot be painted, unless you have a silicone specific paint.
Silicone cannot be glued to unless you have a silicone specific glue, so you have to leave the fabric backing on or sew it down.
Silicone tends to be grippy, so it will collect dust, dirt and fur. In order to keep this from happening, just dust it with a light layer of baby powder before you install and you should be OK.
In order to clean silicone from the debris it has picked up you can either use a piece of tape or other sticky surface (lint brush etc) to grab it all. Then apply your baby powder to keep it from happening in the future.
These tongues can be cut down in the back to make them fit into other jawsets they weren't designed for, so for example if you wanted a forked tongue in a k9 jawset if you cut the back of it down it would fit, but the jaw may have to sit open a little since it's a thicker tongue.
