Wolf whiskers

Discussion in 'Lifesize Mammals' started by B-radshaaw, May 18, 2009.

  1. A client of mine brought me his wolf rug to fix up. Over the years his kids have pulled the whiskers of the wolfs nose. He would like them replaced. Does anyone have any sudgestions on what I could use to mack black wolf whiskers and whats the best way to attach them? Thanks!

    Do you have a large dog ;D lol, j/k... Post in the wanted section, someone may have some extras that they can send you... I would think you could very carefully superglue them in, just like when you pull the whiskers on a mount & re glue them when it's dry, rather than leaving them in and using clay to get them to stay in place. This method was just brought up in a recent thread. Good luck.

    Do have a brush of any kind that the bristles are the same thickness and color? Just pull a couple out, push a pin into the form, stick a dab of super glue gel on the end, and push it into the hole. The trick is finding the right "artificial" whisker, but there are plenty of brushes out there.
