It’s All About Wig Making
I’m tremendous keen to study wig-making, however I do not know that I would have the endurance for it. 🙂 Do you thoughts if I ask what the primary sources you had been taking a look at whenever you started I wouldn’t even know the place to begin 🙂
I completely understand how onerous and daunting it can be to get began with this course of. I think it took me about 6 months to get properly began. I did a number of analysis on the merchandise/items wanted and on cap construction. I feel that to make wigs for your bangs extension self, you need to have an understanding of what you need/want and to have a look at wigs you already have so you can start to understand about the way in which that wigs are constructed. Even with full lace wigs, there are plenty of variations in bases. You probably have a wig design that you really like, you can always try to copy its construction. This is my solutions for the ‘quick-reduce’ means of getting started:
– Take a look at the posts I made when i started the weblog:
http://makingwigs.blogspot.co.uk/2011_05_01_archive.html – the 2nd put up exhibits you basics needed to get started
http:// makingwigs.blogspot.co.uk/2011_06_01_archive.html. – you’ll get a normal thought of what you should start to do
– Go on Amazon or a similar site and get yourself a wig making book. A popular one is: http://www.amazon.com/Wig-Making-Styling-Full-Theatre/dp/0240813200.
– Go on You Tube and lookup wig making. You’ll find helpful movies on there.
The first thing you should do is be taught to ventilate – there is an easy video displaying learn how to do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch v=eWqGTzj3y14&function=associated. For this process, you want to buy some lace (or you should utilize tulle from a sewing/craft retailer when you find yourself simply practising), some hair (cheap wefted processed hair will do), a ventilating needle and a holder. You will also need no less than a styrofoam head or ideally a canvas wig block. Once you have learnt to ventilate, you can begin learning to make a foundation (wig cap/base).
To make the wig foundation/base – you’ll have to do analysis into cap types. Take a look at any wig books you may get your palms on. Look on the bases supplied by Chinese wig making factories (they often have numerous pictures exhibiting what’s obtainable for custom orders). Have a look at what other persons are making on You Tube and blogs like mine. If you already have some wigs, flip them inside out and research the bases. It’s possible you’ll want to take old wigs apart to learn how they’re made and maybe reuse a number of the supplies and/or hair if you are learning.
An vital half of constructing a wig basis/base is sewing. If you have no sewing abilities, then now’s the time to study them. My first 2 caps (the prototype and the one I am at the moment ventilating onto) have been completely hand sewn. Yow will discover more info readily available sewing wig foundations in the book I really helpful above. Whereas hand sewing takes a very long time, it is usually very satisfying, a standard approach of creating a wig foundation and if you are a perfectionist like me: very neat! Sooner or later I shall be experiementing with using a sewing maching for all or part of the wig foundation. Even should you choose to make use of a sewing machine, you still have to know the way to use that, so you probably have zero sewing experience I recommend having a look in some books and on You Tube once more and learning a bit about stitches and strategies of sewing.
I hope this was useful.
It has been just over a 12 months since I started this weblog – wonderful how time flies. For the reply above, I was looking again at old posts and i can see how far I’ve come in that time. I’m actually proud that I’ve executed this all by myself. The place there is a will, there is a method. I need to give credit to the few mentors that I have consulted during this time – notably to one person from Greece.. you will know who you’re. I respect the recommendation and answers to my questions which have been given and that i hope that as I improve I am in a position to help different people in the same method. Pooling our information and resources is unquestionably helpful.
Having seen my pictures from the final replace, I realised how far I have come in the ventilation. I’ve carried out masses since then. A few weekends ago, I made myself a little timesheet to fill in with my wig making hours. I hoped this could encourage me to get extra executed. It labored. I did thirteen hours last week. I shall take some footage and publish them so these of you who have an interest can take a look.
