Puppet Hair

My puppet has hair now! Here is a photo of her on set.

The puppet on set. She still needs her cape.

For her hair, I started with a wig cap made of leather.

Here is the leather wig cap. I later painted most of it black, except for the part in the middle.

I used Gutermann Black Quilting Cotton thread for the hair, because it has a nice sheen, and stitched each strand into the leather cap.

Here is the inside of the wig cape. You can see the stitches. Each stitch makes two strands of hair. First stitch from the outside in and then from the inside out and clip at the correct length.
