My pred 1 bio

They were made out of whips like the ones you get in fancy dress shops LOL. hoping to get some backer rods because they weigh a ton at the moment.
Do you know how to taper the ends of the rods so they look like dreads?


I did some of mine with sharp scissors and some I heated up and `stretched` to a taper. In the picture below when making my Bio wearable I attached the dreads one at a time. The 1st on the left was heated and shrunk and the 2nd left was just cut with scissors. The tape was to keep them steady as the silicone set. There are probably better ways to do it than this, or you could buy bambooie dreads which are already tapered and the best but I had the backer rods attached and cut before I knew there was such a thing.
