Difficulties with 30cm long hair in a high wind?  Try our pan-scrubs for that extra body

A windy night and nowhere to hang your hair?  This hair is a mix of doll’s hair blond and steel wool, giving it body and making it amenable to staying upright(ish).  Steel wool not being my favourite, teasing it out was awkward whilst wearing gardening gloves but we sort of got there.  In the imaginary gale her hair is entangled with the ivy stems adding to the support and flow of the locks.

Her garb is tattered and torn, water colour washed, generally stained and sized.  Both her hair and her ‘gown’ have been varnished to add to cohesion over the length of the hair and, in the case of the gown, to help keep it blowing in the wind and add to the stiffness of the sizing.

The colours have come out a little oddly in the photos – I will try to get a better result on the all the way round, full tower, finished product – as and when.

More ecstatic than  ‘Howl …’

Still working on base – will post more when decisions achieved 🙂
