I made an amigurumi of LJ Phillips' character Vinnie, who is supposed to have a bit of heavy five-o'clock shadow, but didn't give him the scruff because I couldn't figure out how to do it Huh
Like here and I wanted to know if anyone could give me advice on how to do that. The only thing I could think of was fabric paint dabbed in the right places.

Depends on whether you are making it for a small child or a collector. I grab the makeup box and go to with eye shadow. Hope this helps. It will eventual wear off with a small child but some pigments will remain.

I can't believe I didn't think to raid my make-up! And he would definitely be for myself or another adult.

I had a friend suggest flocking, which can be bought from places that sell dolls' hair.

Eye shadow works great on cheeks too!  Or to add a little color to other projects.  I did the worm from Labrynth and used shadow for the subtle tones on his body and his cheeks. 

I have also used it to help with blending.  For example you are using two different color of yarns and want more blended look around the two rows of color change - from blue to white. A little shadow on the first row of white can help with the look!

A lot of the time I'll just brush yarn until it shreds, and then felt the stuff right into the body where I need it. It works with wool and most acrylics, although like brands seem to do best when it comes to the latter.

You can double it with using makeup or pastel to shade! The base layer of color will add depth, while the fiber adds texture. It also helps keep the color from rubbing off.
