    Default Re: Bleaching deer hair

    Taking what I have learnt recently, I had another go at bleaching roe hair. I picked some pieces that were a bit thin - so I could get my fingers down into the roots. I didn't bother with a brush at all. I did add the shot of shampoo to the Bblonde paste to thin it and make it more workable. I just went with working the paste down into the roots by hand. I gave them about the 50 minutes to 1 hour mark in the bag after doing...


    Well-pleased with the result. The 2 pieces above were close to white, while the other 3 bits I did were more of the 'high-lift', pale ginger type.

    Lovely colour in post #10. I would use that for all sorts of patterns.
