    Looking good Daniel. You and I share a common passion- l'ancien regime de France.. What is the manufacturer of this figure? I have never seen it before. Can you please share your method for adding the 'green stuff' curls to the head? Keep up the good work Daniel.

    Thanks my friend, indeed, we love the Ancien Regime.
    Here is how i made the side curls.
    Make sure you mix 50/50 of the green stuff .
    Once fresh, take a little dab and roll it into a shape like a little baguette lol.
    Place it on the side of the head just above the ear.
    Then using theblittle spatula and smash the top of the baguette and spread it towards the rop of the head, that will provide a good stick and base to the head to work.
    After that you canntrim the front and back if you'd like, it depends on how long you want the side curl to be.
    After that , you will make theblines of the hair perpendicular to the direction of the side curl with an exacto knife.
    Last step is to "Pinch" the front and rear of the side curl to make the little appearence of a hole, you will have the chance there to make a bigger or smaller circumference.
    I hooe it helps 20180605_203346.jpg 20180605_204500.jpg 20180605_204553.jpg 20180605_204710.jpg
