Slowly but surely I am getting the hang of the simpler wigs. This is my number 3 wg which I made for Kyeema. I love the color and am getting better at the part. But this angora lost so much during processing .. and it seems so fragile like it keeps breaking?! I dont like it at all.
Shucks, I could have tidied it a bit before taking a photo .. ah well.
thanks. I bought dyed uncombed mohair, which I rinsed a few times as it felt a bit waxy and to remove any remaining little hay bits, this included a bit of conditioner on the final rinse. Once dried I brushed and combed it .. that halved it straight away! I made a hard cap with stocking and modpodge and then glued loose hair wefts onto the cap. For the part I did the glue and bend. The whole time the hair just kept reducing a lot. I reckon by the time I was done it was down to 1/4 of the batch and its still fragile. Love the multi-colors though.

This is stunning hair. I really love what you did! I have a question - I work a lot with crepe wool as a makeup artist for special effects and blending colors together. Is it a similar process? Meaning do you take pieces from each and blend them together by tearing them and placing them on top of the unmixed colors - similar to this www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JBDxAxm-PQ
