One of the projects I was going to do today, while I am down (!!), is paint one of the styrofoam wig heads I have to display hats in my booth at Merchant Square. Here is the result:
The head was already mounted on the piece of wood. These styrofoam heads are so light that the slightest brush sends them falling over! The wood helps keep them upright, stable and weights them down.
First I painted the entire head with ivory acrylic paint and let it dry. Then I got out a brush and some paint and went to work on putting on her face. A pair of cheapo false eyelashes from WalMart completes the look. I think she looks pretty spiffy -- if a bit of a "painted lady" type.
Here are some hats out of my stash that will be put into my antique booth as time goes on. Right now I am not trying to sell any hats. But these are just darling!!My son's computer is so much faster than my old, dead one. I can't wait to get up and running on the new computer. The only problem today is that I cannot crop these pictures with my photo editing program. I will also post these on my Flickr page.
