(Snyder molds, painted by Mannowar, dreadlocks by Bambooie)

Dreadlock beads haven't come in yet, though.
And I still need to attach some quills.
Aaaannd, I still need to attach 8 more dreadlocks. 4 of them being little.
Other than that, she's a beauty. A very heavy beauty...
Enjoy

Cool mask, what did you use to fix the dreads? glue? What type?

I cut X's in the dread holes. Since the dreadlocks were slightly larger than the Snyder mold dread holes, I just pulled the dreadlocks through about an inch. This holds them fairly firmly. For added support, I attempted to carefully squirt a 60 second epoxy compound inside the dread hole (the space between the latex and the dreadlock where it's inserted). Unless you can do this quickly (and neatly; epoxy is messy), you can get all of your dreads. I only got 10 or so dreadlocks glued until the epoxy hardened inside of the syringe mixer.
So if you're not quick enough, buy a 3 or 4 minute epoxy blend, or buy a few containers of the stuff.
