WIP on toddler Isabella


#1

Still have half of the left side to micro root, then the brows, eyes will be going in then lashes. Micro rooting has been slow and difficult, I used alpaca, but it is hard to use and breaks easily, so won’t ever buy it again.




#2

But she is coming out pretty


#3

she is lovely, she has more detail than my Katie Marie. I can’t wait to have her finished


#4

Really cute!!! I hear you on the alpaca… i sparsely rooted my Charles and took longer that my full heads of yearling, kid or anything else I have used. It is however, softer and smoother than anything, a mess, lol


#5

it tangles really easily, best to use the brush than comb. It looks lovely but I’m having to use a hardy needle and put heaps in so it takes ages, I’m heating the head a lot to try and make it easier, but each time you brush or comb it heaps comes away, so don’t know how long it will last, I suspect it will need to be re rooted down the track, depending on how well it’s treated.


#6

Oh wow, I have used alpaca on several heads with no problem… No breaking, tangles, or anything. I just love it! Who do you ladies get your Alpaca from if you don’t mind me asking. I get mine from www.jspremiummohair.shop.

I got mine from CORA City of Reborn Angels in Australia, it’s imported and supposed to be real quality. Are you talking about alpaca or mohair, I thought J’s only did mohair? and that’s all I’ve seen on J’s, I usually use Delta Dawn mohair and that’s the best I found, I found DD is better than J’s.


#10

Awe she’s a CUTIE. Can’t wait to see her all finished


#11

Yes im talking about Alpaca…He was only doing mohair but is now doing Alpaca as well. I haven’t tried any of the others so I can’t compare, sorry.
Here is a cuddles I’m working with now using J’s alpaca.
