I would paint, as mcaulir posted... OR I would try a stitching wheel, then paint the little grooves white w/ the tiniest brush... OR Pipe stitches...with royal icing.... OR Extrude or roll an extremely thin snake, cut it up, and glue it in a stitch formation...     I personally would experiment on scrap fondant and do whichever gave me the cleanest, best look, even if it wasn't the easiest way...
 You're those!
Also wanted to add...don't throw away any scraps you may take off during the process...they're super easy to attach back on if you need extra bulk somewhere, like in the front of your owl, for instance...   It sticks to itself so no glue of any kind needed.

When working with RKT I'd rather stack the pre-made squares together and carve the shape rather than compress them into a blob and try to mold it...   You can see an example of something I made using this method...scroll down:   For that size owl, stacking & carving Treats would work perfectly, I think.   (Also, I cover in a thin coat of ganache because when it dries you...
