Tonight I´m working on a witch bust project. I recently found these nice old wooden thread spools in a gift shop, and I bought them to make the busts. I´m planning on 3 pieces, and right now I am working out the wooden armature. I found this picture from Moonhallow Vintage:
This is the style I´m going for. My dolls never look like the one on the picture, but you get my basic idea.
I used the wooden thread spoole, flowerstick. white woodglue and some news paper.
I use the newspaper to stabilize the flowerstick inside the thread spoole.
A rubber band is also holding the wooden ball in place while the armature is drying.
