What to use for hair and sutures. I want Black thick hair in just a few clumps and it needs to be straight and about12" long Sutures for eyes and lips need to be 1/2 mm thick and about 6-8" long.
We gotta make him not so uguly.




Any ideas would be greatfully appreciated.Thanks

Go to a horse stable, and ask if they are about to trim some manes. Or sneak in at midnight and do it yourself.

I may have to order one a dem shrunken heads as well.

Hmmm.... hair. Would it need to be indiviual strands or attached to some piece of fabric that could be glued? My sister used to work for a hair replacement company and still has some connections. Let me know.

Well Thanks Y'all. I was thinking Horse hair also or long straight human hair . Clump means about 30 strands in clumps on his head, Not a clump taken from your head.
I may have to carve another one and make a mold so Ya'll can have one cheap..This one is Sam Gambinos Design so I'l ask him if we can do more.
Love you guys.

Ben-
I can't wait to get that beautiful, ugly thing in my hands! It turned out better than I had imagined - of course, that's how it was with the last pieces you did! I knew that you'd be doing more of these!

this topic "Benzart's Shrunken Head. Help" beats out Where can I get solar powered eyes?????? because the picture that appears is incredibly scarey!

my first thought was: omgosh, poor Ben, that must really hurt! took me a moment to realize, that was wood.

its beautiful, but its would give me nightmares if it were in my house...

Dogbytes, that was funny.
I think I like the sound of Horse hair. Thick and straight= perfect. Now to find Mr Ed.
Sam gives his permission to reproduce these by the way. Thanks Sam
