Thank you much Cheri. I used fishing line and reinforced each guard.

Brooke... that hoodie is stunning!
Nice chicken 3bears. Is that a Minnesota bird??
Thanks Nate, no, it is a SD bird, I have 2 MN customer's chickens to do that aren't as nice but, of course he wants them dancing.
Lol they always do!!
trick with hoodies is to anchor the ears first...glue or pin.....then you can fill and groom(you dont taxi)
Byrdman, I didn't use anything in those heads. No caulk no filler,no clay. I did not anchor the ears either. The first one turned out kind wavy, and I think it's cause I pulled up on the hood. Kept grabbing it at the tips of the hood feathers and pulling up and forward. The second one I used a pin to "taxi" or move the skin forward and down on each side of the base of the hood until the top line got nice and crisp. Then I just left it to dry.
Like I said, I haven't done but 3 and my first was a couple years ago. I'm always open to trying new techniques, if what I'm doing isn't working. But, at least on this one, it worked.
