How to achieve this painted hair

What would I use to achieve this curly like painted hair? This is not my work or picture. I’m just using it for reference.

That is a beautifully done baby! I know it’s not yours. But, that is what I think about it. Seems to me someone in the past talked about how to do this. Did you look with the search magnifying glass above to the right?

Some is done with a paintbrush, then it looks like the majority is sponged on. @jlesser has done it a few times.

I mix matte/satin varnish and black ghsp, then paint it on my sponge (like a mottle sponge) then pounce it on the head. Bake, cool, repeat, until I like it

Thank you.

I did the same thing - sponged it on all over, baked it and then hand-painted little hairs around the hair line and more to define the curl-shape all over the head.

Do you have any pictures of yours?

I sponged hair on one time and was scared after the first layer that I might not like it after other layers cause I always think the first layer of hair is ugly so I wiped it off and just painted my hair. I should have continued just to try it out but I was too chicken.

Wow!!!that is beautiful hair

Beautiful! Do you have any holes in your sponge or just a flat top?

This is the only one I could find and it doesn’t show it that well…
