    Every time I wrap a body, bird or mammal, when I insert the wrapped leg wires into the main body and cinch the wire, I distort the main body. I have used various size thread to wrap and wrapped dense and not so dense bodies of excelsior.

    Is there a trick that I am missing here?
     
  2. could be your wire, are you putting a point on the end?

    When's the last time you did a bird? Wrap them tight as you can but still insert a wire. The coarseness of the excelsior makes a diffrence also finer is better.

    I do a few of my own. Got to keep in practice.
