    Default Trolls

    Looking at making a brush with a tredure troll. is a 4" better than a 2" troll? do I need to fill the rest of the depression ware the hair was with anything? What is the best way to remove the original ball of hair?
    I don't have s troll or a knot quite yet, mskin sure I hsve my plan if attack before having to admit troll ownership.
    Thanks for the hand holding.

    IIRC, Ed Hewitt is the troll brush master.

    Ed will be glad to assist.

    Pack them the same way you would make a knot fit into a regular handle. Use the glue that works for you. I used silicone (RTV) in very thin layers with a day between the layers. Silicone adhesives need a bit of humidity/ moisture to properly set. Some are colored.A bit of Bondo could help you set the height of the knot after it sets. The head needs to have the funnel...left after tearing the hair out... cut around to make it the right size for the knot. Use a part of the brush ferrule if you have a cheap brush to make the switch as in the 4" above.

    And...Ed is the genius who was trolling us all....first!
    Have fun!

    Just goes to show you... Be careful how you treat a guy with 2 troll brushes.
    He may well have 5 or 8 Eschers at home!

    Why do I keep looking at these?
    The big one MUST have the top and knot of a big Omega.

    They look like they are doing the 'Uptown Boogie!'

    Small wonder Tim has one!
