Do you have any tips for applying the beard?

I glue the ends of long pieces of roving or raw mohair to his face with hot glue using several layers one at a time until the beard is full. Start with three or four long pieces of roving or raw mohair spread out and glue the ends along the beard line on his face. Then keep adding long pieces of roving or raw mohair a little at a time until you get several layers. Don't use too much glue. You don't want that showing on his face. Just enough to hold the roving or raw mohair.. Glue his long mustache on last by gluing the middle of a long piece of raw mohair or roving twisted in the middle just under his nose. You could also use a combination of roving on the bottom layers and raw mohair on the top layers as well. Hope this helps.
