I surfed the net and looked around, but there is not much information on how to attach hair to clay dolls, other than to 'glue it on'...what kind of glue? How do you prepare the hair? What kind of hair? I had some wool roving in a pretty brown with all sorts of browns mixed in, so it was perfect for Werner. I figured I'd just do it - so, I broke out Elmer's 'Glue-All' which promises to stick porous and most non-porous surfaces, combed out some wool roving to make a relatively straight line of hair, and tried it. I dipped the clippings of roving in the glue and smooshed it around, then stuck it on poor Werner, all over. I have to agree with my hubby, he looks like a baby Wookie.
See?? So I suppose you can understand why he seems a bit worried...I was thinking he was nervous about where to sleep for winter, but I'm guessing it's the hair-do...no one said I was a stylist. How do people get this stuff on perfectly??
