Hello Leeking81. Your dress form is awesome. Would you be able to give me some hints as to how you completed your dress form - stuffing and stiffening. I have completed my moulage and want some tips on where to go from here. Thanks so much.

Hi Isabel thanks for the kind comments and congratulation on finishing your moulage. The biggest challenge in stuffing your moulage is getting your measurements to stay exactly like you drafted it, so the key here is to measure as you stuff as you can quickly stuff your work out of proportion . It will take a can do attitude from you to get it just right. As for the stiffening I painted mind with acrylic paint. But keep in my you DO NOT need to stiffen the dressform. It is just my signature technique I do when I make my dolls. hope this helps.
