Hello, this is Paul from You can find on the worldwide web at We have a little character here and he is pretty cute but he is missing some hair. Alright, now if he wanted to be bald he can be bald. A great resource for your hair is your local craft store where you can buy craft.fur. Another thing that I like to use is because it is really fluffy are marabou bows. They are a little more expensive than craft fur. They are really neat. What you do is glue hair on top; they also make great eyebrows and make great mustaches so there is a whole bunch of neat marabous. Right now I am going to take a little piece of marabous, tiny little piece like this. I think that will be enough for him. I am going to dab on some hot glue going across the top of his hair. I nice little line there. Then I am going to take my marabou and gently place on top and press down a bit. Usually my fingers do not get burned when I do this. Again, mustaches, beards, eyebrows and the sky is the limit. You can even put even a little trim around the neck or wrists to give them some type of interesting unique character quality. There we have it a nice little guy. Pretty cute!
