This is the the way I do a small wig if I am not using weft (when doing an applied wig also called glued wig)
Read the full directions and ask questions if I confused you ! Post questions in the forum please then every one can benefit. forum link
Starting at the bottom back each layer is applied and combed before the next
is added. I use Fabritac glue when in a rush as it dries fast OK to wash it BY
Aileen's works but is slow to dry so it is best saved for after the basic
technique is old hat.
Comb out the locks of hair for the main part of the wig. Spread a very thin
line of glue on a glue pad (from the craft store made for hot glue but useful
here as well) or a slick surface like a ceramic tile.
This allows you to peel of the glued weft, when it dries.
Take a lock of hair and smooth it into the glue. Really flatten it
I do several in a row then go back and peal them off the glue pad.
Trim the weft back so the glue line is only an eighth of an inch or so wide.
I use these glued to a tiny wig cap (I want to be able to remove it as I sell
this is all you need for a wig cap this doll is doll house size
add the mohair to the wig cap
Apply a line of glue to the wig cap or dolls head , and smooth the weft in
place , repeat in a circular fashion till you get to the top or side ,where you
want your part .
For the part
using the best combed sections place a layer on a piece of writing paper Cut
ends all in the same direction ( the layer will be twice the length of the part
line plus enough to turn under at the end on one side so make it fairly thin
but thick enough for the size of your doll )This part takes practice beginners
often get it too thick or too thin the first time So try to have enough in case
you have to try twice
Leaving the paper under the mohair Stitch across the hair an inch or more in
from the cut ends ( use the sewing machines straight stitch )close at about 14
stitches per inch. You can also place a paper on top if you are concerned about
the mohair getting caught.
After stitching remove the top paper if one was used. Fold the remaining paper
and hair in half with the mohair in the middle still sewn to the paper. Now cut
a piece of paper that will fit in the center.
This will allow you to have a nice part.
stitch across the folded paper with the new piece in the center just above the
first line of stitching ( looking at the paper the new row of sewing should be
the further away from the cut end so the first row will not show ) this is
easier to do than explain!!
Remove the outer piece of paper on the stitching line which is now perforated
. Then the top section, this will allow the small bit that was sewn twice to
release. Now you have the paper in the center.
Before removing it press open the seam then you can remove the center paper
press under the raw edge and using a small amount of glue glue the part to the
wig. Style the wig when it is dry.
