#2
Prepare the eyes: I used 30 lb red mono . Put the
mono near a heat source (I used my alcohol lamp)
keep rotating the mono getting it near the heat then
backing out until you get the eyes to your liking.
#3
Tie in your eyes so they
are facing down towards
the hook.
#4
Tie in your claw material, I
used orange rabbit strips for
this tutorial.
#5
Tie in on each side to create the
claws separated by the bucktail in
the center.
#6
Wrap back towards the head,
and apply head cement or
your choice to lock it in.
