She has Hair!!

Remember my large fairy that I made a couple of months ago, you can see the process of how I made her here. And the reason she has no hair is because I was waiting to go to the knit and stitch show in Harrogate to find something to make her hair from.

All rectified now as I found just the thing, natural sheep fleece. I had a chat to the lady on the stall, trying to explain what I wanted it for, and my main concern was, would it hold it's shape once dipped in the Powertex. She assured me it would, so just to be on the safe side, I tried a single piece as you can see at the bottom of the photo, and I'm happy to say, it worked brilliantly.

This is the other side of her card just in case anyone is interested and also a reference for me should I need some more!

So I completely covered her in cling film so I didn't get any Powertex on her.

I painted the back of the head and hairline with bronze Powertex, dipped the fleece into the Powertex, added it to the head and started to style the hair.

Was really happy with how it turned out and the fleece takes the Powertex beautifully.

This is approx 20 hours later and it's now quite dry.

And from the front.

And the back. The one long piece down the middle was intentional.

And a front view but from the left side if that makes sense!

Her hair is now all coloured up with bronze gold Powertex pigment.

And the view from the back.

And a close up from the front.

And finally a view from the side.

And here she is in all her glory. Am really pleased with how she has turned out.
