Life Casting and the use of bald caps to cover the hair is standard practice
but I have acouple of handy tricks that maybe used , especially if you cant get your hands on a bald cap.
I have used SWIM CAPS, yes thats right swim caps. They are great
they are tight and nearly always dont need glueing and cheap.
I can buy them here for under $5 compared to bald caps for over $30.
(thats if you dont make your own of course) . Then there is the trusty glad wrap (cling film ) wrapped around the head too.
TRY it and see how you go.......... have fun. Kym x

  1. Top tip! For a face (not a full head) I've found gladwrap glued down with some prosaide works a treat. Massive saving when some decent baldcaps with blendable edges can cost up to $60 (which may still be necessary depending on the kind of detail needed on the positive).
