It is made with two stryofoam balls and a dowel rod. One of the balls is cut in half for the base and painted. The face is made by using Mod Podge and a paper bag. Then the face is painted and sculpted by putting dents in with a pencil. The hair is made with paint and hair, pinned into the ball. I love this part of the directions:
“Frost hair on wig stand by dry-brushing the hair with white paint. Dip your brush into the paint;remove most of the paint from the brush against the side of the jar or by brushing back and forth on scrap paper until very little paint remains on the brush and you begin to get a streaky look.”
Still, if I saw this at an antique store, I would no doubt get it.
