I just couldnt use the original hands...seems a gained a little time, so i redid them...They just didnt feel right! These hands will have a little more expression in them...i have a way to go with hands...absolutely...but i will master THEM! haha
And then I started her wig cap. I learned this technique fron Diane keeler. When the head is finished...take a piece of saran wrap and put it over the head and secure with a rubber band.
Next take fabritac and pour a little on top of her head and smooth it all around with your finger! Then, take a piece of silk guaze or Very thin stretch cotton, and press onto the top of the head over the glue, pressing firmly and forming it around the crown to ears...and down to the nape of the neck.
Spread a little more glue...so it almost looks like a helmet! Let this dry, and then cut it around the head small pointy scissors , cutting around the ears and across the forhead giving a nice hairline! You now have a removable cap that you can apply the hair to in very thin rows and then easily and neatly glue the cap onto the dolls head...it will fit perfect. Remove the dry cap from the plastic and work on a styrofoam egg attached to a stick.
