Peek A Boo...
I'll bet you thought that I forgot the other two boxes...Nope. At least not one of them.
The dressing room is much closer to being finished than the other one. That one may languish for a while. The actor's room is calling.
I decided to make a wig for him/her.
In the first photo, the stand is on the table and the wig cap on the stand. It is the tip end of the thumb of a kid glove. It just fit the ball of the stand. You could use the same technique to make a wig to fit a doll, but the glove would have to be really thin.
I won't go into all of the boring details, other than to say that I cut along the hairline and glued it to the ball. Then I just took three pieces of mohair, unfurled them and glued the top ends to the ball. You can see that in the final photo. Not at all complicated.
Then I proceeded to make seven roses. I have showed you how to use one of these elsewhere in the blog.
You just start with your needle tool and loop about 1/4" of the end of the ribbon around it and glue.
Next you twist the ribbon towards yourself once and glue.
I usually do three of these. You can do more if you want a BIG rose. The one in the photo is ready to cut.
None of the stuff is glued in yet. I still have the power to change my mind if need be.
Now for the hard part. He is going to need a costume...
See you tomorrow.
