Thread: Turbo Dubbing Brush

    Another pro I'm finding....

    It's easier to shape the body using the dubbing brush.

    This may reflect my lack of technique but it works for me....

    Thanks Curtis...That's pretty much how I'm doing it now thanks to the above tips...

    One thing I'm doing that I like is grabbing the wires on the left with a hemostat to lift them...I find I have real control that way.

    Would also mention that JoAnn's has a 34 gauge gold and also a silver spooled wire for 99 cents....I haven't used it but have used the same one in 32 gauge from Craftware house

    Wow, nice clip. Being a newbie I was impressed with the vice as much as the dubbing brush contraption.

    I store my dubbing brushes on Cardstock. You can also use the inserts inside the 24 can soda containers.

    The Cardstock is available at Wally World. I run some Cardstock through my printer (Portrait Setting) using my Spreadsheet Program, to print some reference lines on the Cardstock. I laminate a 2nd sheet of Cardstock to the back of the printed sheet, then snip grooves into both side edges to secure the Dubbing Brushes.

    Brassie wire from Waspi is good, and there is plenty of line. For the Midges, I am using French Tinsel, which is a thinner guage of wire.

    I am going shopping for a battery operated coffee grinder. So I can chop of some fur really fine for my smaller hooks. I get scrap fur from the stores that sell fur coats, that also store and repair them. They normally toss the the scrap pieces out. I have Mink, Sable, various Fox, as well as Bobcat, Cougar, Coyote, Lynx, etc.

    As for the troth, I am using some long strands of thin acrylic fiber to do some flesh bodies, I just lay the material across the troth, with the ends equal on both side outside the troth. After I spin the Dubbing Brush, I comb the fibers back away from the wire, using a metal eyelash comb, picture below with reference to Tying Tip article.

    Jan,
    Here in America, we enjoy something called "Free Enterprise" and in this case where you charge $80 for your tool, Jim comes along and builds something somewhat similar for only $30. Since I'm not familiar with how your country operates, I just wanted to point that out, in case you didn't understand.
