Antenna Fluffs

Good Afternoon all,

First off would like to say happy mothers day to all the mothers and have a good one today. I have a question about making antenna fluffs for my sons grass dance outfit? Is there any one that can give me a couple pointers on how to do this?

Thanks for the help in advance!!

I see some dancers use a bike brake cable line for the antenna with fake feather fluffs.

Instrument wire, like piano wire or thick bass guitar string (.145ga used for the B in a 5 string bass), is great because it consists of a corrosion resistant wire wrapped around a solid core. Instrument wire is also designed to flex and bend a bit. Most are either brass or nickle coated and are fairly light.

I've heard of others using solid wire stock from hardware stores but unless it's coated they will corrode (rust) easily.

I like the idea of brake cable too - never thought of it before.

Antenna fluffs

Thanks for all the help!!... i'm going to try and use the bass guitar string. I was told they work great and now need to learn how to attach the fluffs. Is there any other suggestions on this, your help is greatly appreciated and respected.

Thanks again in advance.

Red face Fluffs

Make a small loop with needle nose pliers this helps keep the Louis from falling put some fluffs on the loop with hot glue.put more below that bunch and more below that bunch.glue the second and third row of fluffs and on the bottom of the last row. Get leather and florettes and thread. Make a florette design and at the bottom of the florette work wrap thread.boom there ya go.
