Best stubble method I've found is to cut lots of short (around 1/8 inch or shorter) bits of hair or wig fibre and spirit gum them on. It takes a bit of practice, and that much area will take some time to apply, but it looks real enough that no one remarked on it when I went bowling as modern!Kili.
Using a stipple sponge is easier and faster and not as itchy, but it doesn't look as good.

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.
