Emmy has a squished head! I use air-dry. I seen you can use boiling water but how?
Let the water come to a boil and cut it off. I use tongs when I put the head in the water so that it doesn’t touch the sides of the pot. Let the water fill the head. It should “pop” it back into shape.
I put mine in a pillow case and boil in a big pot and keep it moving
I do what @cajuncuties does but I put a towel on the bottom and sides of a deep pot.
For me just pouring hot tap water into the head usually works great.
You can support the head in a bowl, pour in the boiling water or hot tap water and let it set till it is back in shape, dump the water and let cool, it should be fine.
In the past, I’ve just stuffed it tight with polyfil to get it back to its normal shape and then when I put it in the oven after adding a matte layer (first layer), it keeps it shape.
But @morgan123 uses air dry so that wouldn’t work :/.
Oh! My apologies.
