Great job!!!


#82

Amazing job!


#83

Wow, you learned that in class?


#84

I had already rooted before I took the class. In the class I got to try the needles uncut that don’t need a handle and I like them better, I learned to root with more than one colour of hair, I learned a better position to root from, and I learned that I could draw my mapping with a fabric marker. I had already been rooting only one hair at a time, but she taught that as well.


#85

Beautiful rooting! This is a dumb question but how do you hold the uncut needles? Don’t they hurt your fingers after a awhile? :blush:


#86

Ya kind of, but I think only because I hold them really tight just like I hold my pen really tight and press really hard. I gave myself a blister on my thumb. If I’m conscious of it I loosen my grip and it’s better, but I just naturally squeeze too hard.

I hold it almost in the same position has I hold a pen except my middle finger is touching with the tip of my finger instead on the side. My thumb and pointer are in the same position.


#87

You can buy a pink pen that holds them just like a pen. Some people also wrap rubber bands around them for grip and comfort


#88

I have carpal tunnel badly but I may try this with rubber bands or something like that TY both!!


#89

I wrap the tops of mine with duct tape cut in slim short strips to make a handle and cushion the top .


#90

You can mix some darker hair in with the lighter and it will darken up and look better.


#91

Very nice let us see her finished on Monday


#92

I have carpal tunnel too. The uncut needles that are coloured are sort of coated in a rubbery material so they are easy to grip, they don’t slide in your grip.


#93

Does anyone have photos of Jennie Lee’s booth? And Bean Shanine’s (Twisted Beanstalk) booth?


#94

If you check out @LynnW’s youtube videos she shows the whole floor and the booths. She did multiple videos


#95

Thanks Jenni! Yes, I have a lot of videos up about the doll show :slight_smile: Here’s Part 1 of the first day of the expo, but I also have ones from the days beforehand (including the baby shower and my silicone painting class plus Rosebuds).


#96

What did you think about the silicone painting class. I’m thinking of taking it next year. If they have one


#97

Oh thank you!!


#98

Here is Sugar, my rooting baby from Jacky’s class.

Beautiful job on that hair lady!!

Thanks. I would have liked it a little thicker on top, but overall I’m happy with her. I’ve always loved the sweet face on this kit.
