Hello! I have seen your wig rooting tutorial and I have been following it. I have a question! The moment crystal glue that you use to glue the hairs on the inside, to prevent them from pulling out, doesn't make the wig cap hard, not allowing it to enter the head of the doll? Thank you!

Thank you for trying out my tutorial! The cap is semi-hard, like, it holds its shape but can be bent easily, so even if your doll's head is wide at the back and is more narrow at the front and sides you'll be able to put the wig on.

Добрый день, не подскажите, есть ли перевод на русский? 
Вы обычно ссылку на дневник даете, тут ссылки нет, стоит ли в дневнике искать, или вы не вывешивали?

How would you do this if you wanted to make them have bangs?

It's the kind of design that is good when you can't cover the front line with bangs. I.e. the wig with bangs is 100 times simpler to make.

Изумительный урок по паричкам! Пожалуй, лучший, что я видела!
Большое спасибо за него.

Я сейчас, следуя ему, пытаюсь тоже сделать свой парик, но у меня возникла поблема - он получается слишком густой. Я прошила всю центральную верхнюю и лобовую части, но волос уже по ощущениям в 2 раза больше, чем на Вашем паричке... наверное, придется филировать в неприметрных местах, чтоб убрать весь этот лишний объем, и затылок с висками прошивать более разрежено. Я уже на весь лоб брала по 2 волоска.
Материалы: саран, момент кристал, тюль.

Поэтому у меня вопрос, что же я делаю не так?
Ваш парик какого размера? Может быть мой просто меньше и поэтому так получается (мой парик 5.8 дюймов)...?!

Буду очень благодарна за подсказку!

К сожалению не увидела Вашего ответа вовремя.
Я профилировала парик, уменьшив, наверное, половину объема, пригладила утюжком. выглядит пока вот так flic.kr/p/Ygq9qA
Но там задняя часть головы все еще лысая :) Я уже более разреженно буду делать прошивку сзади и снова состригать скорее всего придется... Даже если брать по 2 волоса.

scargeear Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2017  Professional Artisan Crafter
Ого! Действительно, даже сейчас парик достаточно густой.
Я хз, почему так вышло, честно... Не должен быть саран разным, должна быть стандартная толщина волоса везде...
Чтоб волосы не стояли дыбом у корней, пролейте парик кипятком, насадив его на какую-то основу, приблизительно повторяющую форму головы. Волосы должны улечься.

Ну красиво конечно, даааа! Эхх. Отличный результат.

Большое спасибо за похвалу :) Без Вас бы и не знала, что так можно. А еще я в полном восторге от совета использовать клей Момент Кристал...я то привыкла с ПВА работать... а он несовместим с водой особо)
Еще у меня в парике затесался UHU Strong. Тоже понравился.

Кипятком обдам обязательно. Но наверное, когда все волосы пришью.
А то в процессе работы я их все равно поднимаю.

А вот по поводу толщины волоса я заметила, что темный цвет у меня плотнее.
Я использую в парике 3 оттенка: русый, рыжеватый и шоколадный. Шоколадный прям такой... раза в 1.5 зрительно толще. А это преобладающий цвет. Хотя может оптическая иллюзия..
Я походила по комментариям в этой ветке, Вы писали, что материалы тут покупаете www.dollyhair.com/saranhair.ht…, это сообщение было оставлено достаточно давно, магазин этот все еще актуален?

Спасибо за Ваши советы :)

На здоровье! Парик действительно уже очень красиво смотрится.
Можно и сейчас кипятком, но это по желанию. Потом переуложите, если что. Кипятком саран не испортишь, если парик там не варить.
Плотнее? Это странно... Я использовала и светлый (золотистый), и черный саран - по ощущениям они одинаковые. Брала в разное время на dollmore.net и на dollyhair.com.
Можете выбрать по 20 волосинок каждого цвета, скрутить в пучок и посмотреть толщину. Если шоколадный реально толще - ну упс.
Последний сайт должен быть актуален, чо ему сделается)) Открывается и ладно.

It's great. Thank you very much for the tutorial.

I would like for some time to make wigs to my dolls, but I have a question: How do you make the wigcap (the base of the wig) is "hard"? Because I have not understood with what the tulle adheres or what uses for it in the other tutorial (I left the impression that I only put it, but I know that does not seem possible).
I also wonder if the hair does not go out by not tying them in any way, when combing it for example Do not glide?

I apologize for my bad English, maybe that's why I have not understood perfectly, I speak Spanish ...

I would also like to ask, if my doll has a cap made of cilicona so that the wigs do not slip (or I think it is for that, I am quite new to the hobby) Should I make the base with him or would I enter even if I do without him?

Thank you very much, again.

Thank you very much!

Well, it's the polyurethane glue that makes the wig cap stiff. 3-4 layers of tulle + a generous amount of glue on each layer = stiff cap. More, the glue prevents the cap from sliding. It's not as good as silicone, but the tight fit helps a lot, and if you still have issues you may add a thin layer of hot glue (the same stuff that is used for joints hot gluing) near the edges of the cap from the inside.

It depends on the fiber type how good it holds in the wig cap. When I used Saran hair it were literally the everlasting wigs that I could wash as many times as I wanted and comb roughly (I don't pull on my own hair that hard). The wig from this tutorial is still like new and undergoes regular full length brushing.
Though when I used a cheap heat resistant fiber from Aliexpress (it was actually a hair extension tail, costed me something $6-8, looks very nice though and holds perm curls like dream), I was able to pull some hairs. If there are knots they should be uncombed gently, and some hairs can fall off during brushing, but nothing serious.
Of course, each portion of the hairs inserted should be generously covered in glue from inside. The glue fixes the tiny loops and gets in the holes made by the needle so as the hair is glued to the cap.

Hope that is clear enough. Please feel free to ask if something is still unclear.

Are you very nice. Is perfectly clear.
I know I'm new in the BJD world, I'm sorry for the stranged questions, and thanks so much for answer me. Realy.
I feel grateful that she took the trouble to do so. You do a wonderful job, admirable, maybe that's why I've "taken the free" a little to ask him, and I'm sorry, but thank you.

I made a wigcap from stockings, rooted a part (1x1cm) and glued it from the inside. A really thick layer. Still I pulled out all hair very easily, when the glue was dried. 
I used waterproof woodglue, I used it for every craft and its really good. 
Do you know why it happened? 
Reply
:iconscargeear:
scargeear Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2017  Professional Artisan Crafter
What hair do you use? I never had this issue with Saran, but some kinds of a heat resistant hair are pulled out relatively easily.
I never used woodglue for the wigs though. I use it for my furniture, as it's not elastic enough to my taste. That could be a problem, because polyurethane glues fill in the thinnest pores, while PVA based glues are not that good.

Great tutorial, and amazing work!

I'm curious if you think Alpaca Suri hair would work for this type of wig? I really like how it looks on dolls and I want to try making a lace wig. Or would it be better for me to get some kind of synthetic fiber instead? If so, what type of fiber would you recommend?

If it's long enough and strong enough to withstand pulling through the wig cap - why not? I never worked with Alpaca Suri so I can't guarantee anything.
I use mostly Saran or Kanekalon. Nylon is also OK.

What size head is the BJD in the example photos? I would love to try this on my first BJD, but she has a 16.5cm head and I'm not sure it would look as natural on a little head, what do you think?

The head is 19.5 cm in circumference, so please don't be afraid, this technology would look pretty the same on MSD dolls too!

Hello Scargeear, this tutorial is impressive well done and very helpful... I have two questions.

1. I bought a bunch of hair wefts some are synthetic and some are human hair... can I use then to make this type of wigs?

2. When  this type of wig is done... who this one stays in the dolls head?  this one will fall out easy?


Thank you
George

scargeear Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2015  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you, George!
Answers:
1. I recommend synthetic wefts, as human hair is mostly too thick and resilient for a dollie wigs. But you may try))
2. When the wig cap is made as it shown in my other tutorial it fits the head very precisely and stays on its own. As BJD wigs have to be removable that's usually enough. Some owners use 2-side sticky tape, or a thin velcro, though in this case you need to add it before making the wig cap, otherwise the wig won't fit.

This is an amazing tutorial, something that I was thinking about for a long time to do myself, but couldn't figure out how to do the edge and if I can do it on smaller head like Monster High doll. I definitely need to try.

Спасибо за туториал! Отличная техника для настоящих кукломанов :).
