Hair

Hair is a very long process! To me, though it is repetitive (washing, punching, dying..), it is very therapeutic. My first hair experience was from my stop motion 1 class, which was made with my own hair and glued onto a wig caps in careful wefts. That experience does not compare to truly punching and styling hair, which I did for the characters in Art House and Preserved. I used alpaca wool and dyed them with fabric dyes and semi-permanent hair dyes. The hairs are then punched into the silicone cap. Depending on the hair, it is styled with heated brass rods, various hair gels, and silicone glue.
