Lizzy is Wigged!

.....sounds kind of funny, doesn't it? She's "wigged"? Anyway, I digress.

Today I put on her hair and styled it.

Step 1:  Create a realistic hairline by making a wigging cross. As before, Dana Burton of "Miniature Art"  provides a great Youtube video on how to do this.




I have to admit, this is the most challenging step for me. However, I can tell I'm getting better....just takes practice and patience.

Step 2: Once the glue is dry, style the hair. Since Lizzy is a peasant girl, I went with a bun and strands of wayward curls.

Drumroll, please: Herrrrrrre's Lizzy!









I hope you enjoyed the process. It's such a rewarding experience making each doll - I can't describe it. If you think you'd like to give this a try, let me know and I'd be more than happy to help you get started.

  1. I like her hair very much. I can see how the hair must take a long time if you want it to look neat.
