Gary....You can use any type sandpaper...coarse or fine or in between , different shades of brown, etc. Just an alternative if you have no Pheasant feathers...also I put a good amount of epoxy but a thin coat will show the grains better, ...and a fine sandpaper in a shade of brown will copy the brown crab carapace perfectly. Using different shades will allow you to see what the shades of the real thing are in certain estuaries and the grass flats on north Monomoy.
