The Roughest Longest Dub on the Planet

Well, maybe I exaggerate, maybe I don’t.   I recently received a request for 5 different colors of rough dub; Rust Brown, Olive Brown, Bright Orange, Black, and White.  I followed a rough ratio of materials and happened upon these 5 beautiful shades, which each have their recipes recorded  for repeating future blends.  As always, if interested in dubbing, contact me for a quote.

Here’s what I came up with…

    Those colors and textures, as far as I can tell, look real good. The white interests me most, hard to find good white dubbing. What method do you use most to apply the dubbing?


    • You mean like, loop dub vs touch dub vs packing dub.
      Loop usually, however packing it like wool can be rewarding as well, the head will come out more like a deer hair bass bug…

      to make the dubbing was a mix of water blending for the dificult to seperate fibers and air blending for the final product. Water blending sucks but for long dub..its the only choice.
