What to use as claws on a Wolverine figure

Posted in Custom Workstation

My cousin (fastfreddie) is updating a custom painted Wolverine he made and gave to me from the "Marvel Legends" series and I'm looking for help finding the tools to make metal claws as seen in a lot of customs, I've been searching for some "sail repair needles" but so far I haven't had any luck, any help would be appreciated

Thanks for all the help, I think I'm gonna check out the fabrics at Wal-Mart to see if I can find the right stuff

yeh those are sweet, I have had a a WIP wolverine sitting my my bench for like a month now using those claws. The come in a pack that cost 2.25 here and you only get ONE in each pack... so do the math and I payed 15 bucks just for the claws..lol.. spent 99 cents on the bobby pins I STILL USE for the past year..lol..

The sail repair needs you may want to look at are sold at Wal-Mart in the fabric section in the packs that cost $1.50 or so. They come with various other needles too.

Gee I wonder who did that tut. . .

Anyway follow that tut and you should have steel claws in no time. Kyle did a bang up job on it and made it easy to follow.

Most people use bobby-pins (hair pins) but some of the oddly-shaped needles like those sail ones look nifty too.

I know Hawkeye had "infinte pins" on his trade list, you could talk to him and see what he's got
