It’s all about the hair today. I never cut or attempted to sculpt my doll’s hair as a child because I knew I didn’t have the coordination or the skills needed to make it a success. Being older and wiser comes with its benefits and I’m spending today decapitating dolls and turning their heads into something special.

Collaging synthetic hair is virtually impossible because the glue can’t grab hold. The best thing to glue paper to is itself so there’s a lot of fiddling around to do before I can get the paper to sit in the correct position. I could change my adhesive but I love the finish I get from this PVA glue. Hidden inside this sculpture are paper clips and small hair grips to give the structure integrity. I’ll have to wait a while for this section to dry before moving around the head.

This is turning into one monster up do!
