An artist just has to "go with the flow" and allow the canvas to speak to them.
Precious proved that to me once again.
I had selected some alpaca hair for her~even though torn that many people voted that she be left bald.
*I* just didn't feel like she was complete in the bald state.
But, I could not get a good match of needle to hair to silicone so I set the alpaca hair aside and put out the white flag of surrender.
I began rooting her lashes with some chosen mohair. I REALLY loved that color on her. So with one side of her lashes rooted, I just began to poke the mohair in to her head and before I knew it, 1/4 of her head was rooted! I DO love the color on her and the style as well.
I'll do more around the bang line in the end but here is how she is looking now.
I am so glad I listened to my canvas :)
(Please forgive the super long lashes on her right eye. I do not want to trim them until I am done with her hair.)
Ahhh...it's great to be back to work!
