Anyway, I glued it on but afterwards it fell off! I think I need to use something other than PVA glue perhaps. At least though I got an idea of the colour on my Blythe Border Spirit, Candy, who I customised a few months ago. Her original hair was blond but it was a very yellowy blond and I wasn't keen on it....so I dyed it using Dylon but it came out too dark...it was more of a raspberry pink than I wanted. So I decided to go the full 'hog' and do a reroot. I got a new rubber scalp from Cool Cat, then I got my baby pink saran hair from Retro Dolls in the UK and took it from there.
Tomorrow I will reglue the scalp to her faceplate and not be so impatient this time and leave the elastic bands in place for longer. I then need to do the thatching on the centre part. I am going to give her a fringe because I don't really like my Blythes without, I think their faces are too round and large for that look. And then finally I'll cut the length. I hope I can get it all done tomorrow but I don't want to rush anything.
Candy was not a happy bunny when I took these photos.....the indignity of those elastic bands...not to mention the discomfort!!!!
If looks could kill.....
