I wanted to create a beard from scratch using crepe wool for the character of a bearded lady.
I decided to use myself as a model.
As a part of my process, I began by purchasing three different colors of crepe wool: brown, auburn, and white.
Next, I bought a red hair dye similar to my hair color and created a small dye bath (50% water and 50% hair dye) and dyed the white hair.
Once I had the desired red, I took all 3 colors and made two small braids tied with bows. I was able to attach the braids and the remaining hairs to my face using spirit gum.
