  • 2nd porky hair row


    Quick question i'm making a second row for my new roach with porky hair. do I put the shorter (5"-6") row on the outside of the or inside of the main row, like in front of the row of normal hair or behind it?

      No not really I've been kinda busy with school and cwreenacting , I think it's bad when you are beading in your tent after camp visitor hours when our civil war persona is gone . luckily my tent buddy is a drummer getting into dancing . I was hoping he would just reply to the post instead of me having to go to the trouble of PM him , mbesides a post could help some future soul that has the same delema.

        It doesn't matter which way you put it on (first or second), I personally always put the second (crown) row on first and then put the main (full length) row over it.

        Now with that said I sure hope that by 5-6" row you mean that is how much is tied each side of center and not the total length or the height of the porky hair. The crown row should be long enough to go at least all the way around the crown and should use the same height hair in the same amounts as the main row.

        Hope that helps

          actually I did my second row of porky row shorter than my main row . that's what it said on the instructions. it's to late now I'm finished with that row . I'll put it behind the main row do you think that will look okay ? the 5-6" is the hieght of the hair on the second row that I tied...... that's it I'm going to try noc bay next time this is the second thing crazy crow has eather cheated me on or made unclear and made me goofed up on.thanks for the help guys this really helped me.

            My roaches have that "crown row" on the inside, with the full row going around it and around the remainder of the roach base.

              Hi. We have tied some horsehair (kinda like a little roach) and now we need to attach it to a rosette. This will go on a headband. Any suggestions??? Thanks for your help.

              Skunk hair on roaches?
              by Tx_grass_dancer
              I just saw this on the Matoska web site. They made a roach with a row of skunk hair on the inside. Supposidly it made it look fuller, but the picture was of the inside of the roach so you couldn't tell. It looked pretty good, and I was thinking of trying it.

              Just wanted to know if anyone...

              Hi Again,

              I am making a hair roach from a kit that I got from Crazy Crow. The instructions which came with the kit are very vague in a couple of places. The procedure for pinning and sewing the hair cord to the base is my problem. I asked Crazy Crow to clairify and all I got from them...
