    Yes just one layer was enough but about 4-5 layers of the glue as it was a very thin glue.
    The mannequin was very handy .. I could draw, glue and trim without any worries. I did still use a thin film of clingwrap first so the glue didnt stick to the mannequin, plus it positioned the piece of metal onto the magnet perfectly

    First wig... attempt :)

    Great! I just tried a new version with 2 layers of cheese cloth and 3 layers of glue.

    Will try stocking next. I kinda do like the cheese cloth though looks like lace when it's dry.

    Oooo! I wonder if you could use actual lace...

    Here's an incidental cheese cloth wig for your viewing pleasure 😄😄😄



    Maybe we will start a trend or something 😄

    What if I wrap the cheese cloth around her face, to create an instant hairline?

    Oh! Dina! Where did you get the metal piece for the magnet? And what size?

    Be careful because also carpenter's glue and many other waterproof glues (not Fabritac) actually get softer when wet so the style can suffer if one is not delicate.
    But the key is to be delicate !

    My husband snipped a piece of steel he had in the garage, it was about 6mm square, I think it was like roof sheeting. After layering the stocking, I then added the metal while gluing the wig cap.

    The key is to find a glue that does not get softer Maybe. One day.

    But yes. I just wanted to test this specific glue and it does not really work for washing.

    Gotcha. I was thinking of actually getting another magnet, but now I'm thinking that a piece of metal might be a better idea.

    The one you tested sounds as if it was much worse than carpenter glue though...

    As mentionned, Fabritac does not get softer.
