    I am doing a custom LSU mando, and was wondering if you can do a set in purple and yellow (LSU colors)? If so, you can put me on the next list....
    Those would be easy colors to dye.

    I also sent you a pm

    Right now, my 3rd/next run is also full and I won't be taking any more requests until sometime in 2009.

    looking great Julie...

    Qn - Are members to 'curl' the ends of the braids to their own spec? No issue... just will need to get the wifes curling irons out when I get mine? Has the list been updated?

    Yep...all you need is either a curling iron or curlers and some hairspray or gel.

    Hi Julie I'm still in, however I'm signed up for the wrong set. I wanted the ROTJ 7 braid extended set for $70.00 like Moncal's. Thanks, Morgan

    Has anyone every tried using Hair dye on rope to get the colors needed??? I've seen some thick rope at the store that looked like it could be braids if it were the right color. So was thinking fabric dyes and then Hair Dye hit me as an idea. plenty of color options out there. Just a tought.

    I could go for a basic ROTJ set if you get the chance too. Thanks!

    Actually I use both Rit fabric dye and regular hair dye, depending on the color I need. I haven't tried dying any rope though, just the horse hair.

    I would think that fabric dye would work better on the rope, plus it doesn't have the strong odor that hair dye has when dying.

    A few people have ask me about attaching the braids so I thought I would post a couple of pics. The full size versions are at the bottom of the Gallery.



    The pic is of the 3 braid ESB set (black braid is looped, the other 2 or not.) I used some of the sinew, however you could you a thick thread or even fishing line to tie the braids together.



    I used a safety pin. You could use individual safety pins for each braid or one large one.
