AHi. In the middle of making a figurine and the client contacts me to say they now want the figure to have 'salt and pepper' coloured hair (ie Richard Gere or George Clooney). Have no idea of the best way to do this. They stressed he does not have grey hair!!! Help. I need to finish it by tomorrow. Thanks in advance!!!

AI would put both brown and gray together in one "sausage" just lightly twisted so it was a bit marbled, and squeeze it out of my extruder mixed up like that. (I almost always use the tiny holes disc in my extruder for hair.)

AOh thanks!! Will give it a try. Would that work for short hair? Thanks soooo much

AYep, you just don't extrude out as much. (Or cut off what you need.) I usually make several layers.)
