After doing taxidermy for several years, I got my first catfish. Can anyone help me with ways of doing or making whiskers? I really appreciate it.

from turkey priimary feathers work pretty good. Just strip the feathers off, glue the fat end into the head, and heat it with a flame to shape it. Finish it off with a few coats of fin glue.

try weed wacker string.Comes in different diameters and you can heat it up to shape and taper it.
