Ballerina: Ruby part 4

 I use very fine hand dyed mohair for the wig.  

The costume is china silk.  The raw cut edge of the skirt is sealed with a fine line of Aleene's Fabric Fusion.

Ballerina: Ruby part 3

The ballerina parts are attached with double strands or twisted 20 guage beading wire.  The two legs are glued together with 5 minute epoxy.

After the epoxy has set I fill the space with Milliput epoxy putty, available from Micro Mark.

Hands and toe shoes are protected until wigging and dressing are completed.
