|Reviews A Hair Raising Overview: This was a reply to Tina's question about applying hair to a polymer clay sculpted figure. There are a number of ways to put hair on a polymer clay figure.|
first I tried rolling out snakes of clay, which was an interesting
effect but a PITA to do.
Most sculpted figures with hair, made of mohair or some such fiber, have one hair-do and you're stuck with it. When I was working on Cowboy Kai I wanted hair that could be styled in different ways. My girlfriend Milly brought over some hair extensions, which can be styled, brushed, even hot ironed. I experimented with embedding hair extensions into a raw clay scalp on a cured clay head.

I found that embedding micro braids was the easiest and after curing I could undo the braids. Kai is from a planet called BrunnenG and they have this hair style that's a big bun on the top of the head.
