DIY Mohair Doll Wig
This is my second Mohair wig using loose mohair--and this is how I did it.
|Cinny's head is removed from her body, and her hair is removed. I put a piece of Saran Wrap on her head and secured it in place with a hair band.|
|Tear the plaster impregnated cloth into narrow strips. Tear, not cut --so that the edges blend better--just as in papier mache.|
|Soak the strips in plain room temp water until they are slimy and slippery.|
|All dry! You have a perfectly fitting wig cap for Cinny----No Max!|
Here's what you will need now: Doll head--(leave plastic on)
Mod Podge or Elmer's Glue, tacky Glue, paint brush, plastic or wooden craft stick, plastic plate, scissors. At this point you can trim the dried wig cap if needed.
|This is the Mohair I am using---it is LONG and curly so I just want the curly ends so I clipped them off.|
|When you get to a very small bald spot left at the center of the crown simply dab some tacky glue there and stick in one last piece of mohair. Allow wig to dry on Doll.|
When the wig is dry you can mist with water and scrunch the hair gently with your fingers to enhance the curls and style the hair. I made another wig like this awhile back--for My Gavin redo Bodhi. Have Fun!!!
