This was supposed to be my first trial but it was postponed because I ran out of fiber. Haha.

I changed the technique in the middle that why the right side of the parting line is kind of thicker than the left side (>-<)”’ .

I haven’t ironed the wig yet but already cut it. I haven’t had any knowledge about hair cutting so, yes, it was a mess. (^O^)”’.

I annoyingly hide my doll face. (>u<)

 

Using viscose fibers seems easy as it’s soft and in my case, it’s straight but in reality, it is super soft and fine that i can say, it’s ‘fragile’ and easily separated. Once it’s separated uncontrollably, it becomes a disaster.  So, I have to separate it very carefully so, i have minimum fibers to waste.

  • I use  tooth pick to separate it and then while picking separated fibers with my right hand, my left hand hold/push the rest of fibers so they wont stick to the fibers i’m picking.
  • I then glue the tip of fibers i pick. So, it won’t be separated anymore as well as easier to put on the wig cap. I figured out about this while experiencing the trouble  but then someone show me the video about it and then I aaah…ok, I’m on the right track.

Those two are very important to start. How to put it on the wig cap etc, you can search it in youtube or support an artist video by paying it. I heard from a friend, Andreja made a video about it but we have to pay to see it. (^_<)d

Wig Cap // Stretch Fabric

Using stretch fabric is recommended because we can create a smooth wig cap. The left one is also using stretch fabric but I didn’t pull down too much so the wrinkle still existed. Use string rubber to hold the fabric and pull down the fabric until the wrinkle disappeared. After wipe it with glue and leave it over night, the glue will dry and the stretch is disappeared. You can take off the stretch string and cut the unused fabric. The wig cap will be thinner because we pull it but that’s ok. if you think, it’s too think, may be you want to double the fabric next time making wig cap. For me, 1 layer so far is enough.

*lots of tutorial in youtube for making wig cap and wig itself. I only share my opinion here. Please find yourself by searching in youtube about making wig cap and wig itself. Thank you.
