HOW TO MAKE HAIR FOR SCULPTURES by vonBorowsky HOW TO MAKE HAIR FOR SCULPTURES by vonBorowsky
IF YOU USE THIS TUTORIAL, SHOW ME WHAT YOU MADE WITH IT =D

I developed this technique to make hair for sculptures because it is too difficult to find it to buy where I live, and if I find, there isn't the color I wanted... I am pretty sure there is more people with the same problem!

This is an easy way to make hair for your sculptures/ dolls! Of course isn't that good than synthetic hair, but is better than nothing. Ribbon can be found in a good amount of colors.

Examples:
Pony Rehair: Build-A-Bear Rosie by SD-DreamCrystal  Custom Non-MLP: Amanita by SD-DreamCrystal

My work:
Ball Jointed Opalescent, the Dragon by vonBorowsky :Handmade Ball Jointed Doll - Commish: Xeshaire 3 by vonBorowsky BJD German Shepherd by vonBorowsky Ball Jointed Pink Dragon: Pinipette by vonBorowsky Choose Your Favorite by vonBorowsky

How interesting, I saw you got a DD (congratulations by the way) and I decided to look through your gallery. I actually used this exact technique on a doll I just sold and your image was what inspired me to! Now I know the artist that originally posted it and thank you for the excellent information here. :)
