    Hey,

    Just wondering if anyone can give me some good advice on adding hair to a resin bust, i will be getting the Joker bust from coofunkcurly, the bust that started out as a lifecast and was 3D printed. Anyway i have a friend who is doing the paint up for me and will get some Tech Optics eyes, but the hair I will most likely be doing myself, i plan on getting a real haired wig but after the purchase of it I'm going to need help, having never done anything like this i want to do it right, I'm pretty good with stuff but would appreciate and tips/photos on how to go about it.

    Also, do you think it's best to add the hair first before the paint or last?

    Cheers ;)

    Its better to add hairs after the paint is done. It will also help you in finding more appropriate look of hairs.

    Try buying a good quality wig, the kind that you glue on.

    Normal wigs have lines of hair sewn into the cap. If you start cutting the cap to get a better fit or to better match Heath Ledger's hairline, you can have an entire row come loose. They also can have sketchy hairlines.

    You may want to think about a lace wig, specifically an upart style. Lace wigs have much more realistic hairlines and the hairline of the upart will better match the receding part .
