    Question Beards and Mustaches for Mego's

    Hey folks, does anyone have ideas for making beards and mustaches for Mego heads, or know of anyone who makes them?

    I'm doing a custom of the Lazarus character from Star Trek and my original idea of using paint brush bristles and superglue for the beard and mustache didn't work, so I'm asking around to see if anyone can help me out

    Thanks and always appreciate any help.

    I have these: http://www.lasermego.com/latest-news...moustachemania

    But they aren't bushy enough for what you want.

    Thanks I appreciate the help, I forgot you had these on your website, those are perfect for old school western characters
    I will keep this in mind since I like doing old west characters.

    Testors modeling putty (in the grey tube, about three bucks) is pretty great for sculpting hair wherever you want to put it. It's about the consistency of cake frosting, so you'll want a dull X-Acto blade to move it around. You can sand it when it's dry, if necessary. I'm NOT sure it will be happy if the head it's on is boiled, so I'd put the head on its final body before starting to sculpt. I have customs using it that are 10-15 years old, and they're still together.

    It gets a little whiffy, like marker fumes, so have a fan going in the room.

    That might be a last ditch option if all else fails, I'll remember using a fan and probably an open window might be a good idea as well.
