I Tried plumbob's trick for wrapping smooth floss bodies and it seems to have worked, but i think I need to find a better floss, because i found that small strands of it would break when being smoothed

Thanks,

Looks good. A lot of those patterns could be hairwings, the bou looks like a good substitute.
