Reroot experiment

(1/4) > >>

SweetNightmare:
I'm still pretty new to the whole rerooting process. I still need to learn more about different kinds of hair and where to buy them. I don't think anyone sells hair specifically for rerooting so I may have to really look into buying from shops outside my country (not looking forward to pay for international shipping but it does seem like the best way to get good hair).
In the meantime I decided to try out something different.

Since I couldn't find any doll hair I decided to try out some synthetic hair made for making braided hairstyles.

I bought one big braid with four colors: pink, purple, blue and green and after I've got a styling size Fluttershy that had almost all of her hair cut off in one of my lots (didn't take before pictures since I just randomly decided to use her). I decided to add some color to her mane and I rerooted her with pink, blue and green colors.

I'm gonna show how the final result looks like

I did manage to get most of the texture that the hair has out with the hair straightener however some of it remains, you can barely see it up close but you can definitely feel it once you touch it. The hair is not the softest (and is hard to work it) but does look nice in my opinion.

As much as it's not a perfect option I am pleased with the results. I will probably use more of it for practice and my personal customs (since it's so heap here and there's a lot of variety). I will probably try to straighten it more, since the tail (that I straighten more) came out pretty nice compared to the mane.
I may also try and reroot the pony and keep some of the texture to make it look like the pony's hair has more volume (maybe a cotton candy themed pony?).

If anyone else plans to use it and doesn't want to keep the texture (doesn't mind a bit of it going away) do straighten it at least a little bit before you reroot.
The texture makes it har to pick the strands of hair. Straightening it at least a little bit will make it much, much easier to pick hair (I learned that the hard way).

Oh my goodness this is absolutely gorgeous ;^; The hair curls look really nice and the colours you used look really nice!! It's a shame that it's hard to work with but it looks really really good. Well done :accomplished:

Thank you all :happy:
I didn't buy this hair thinking I'll be using it on Fluttershy but it matches her very well  ^.^
The hair after straightening wasn't that hard to work with, well the mane was a bit hard to curl (the ends still look straight).
I feel like I could maybe straighten it again and then curl again, then the hair would probably feel a bit softer but I probably won't do that for a while.
I would like to try and repaint or paint over her eyes (since her right eye is a bit messy, probably a factory error) and also add some pastel green and pink details on her wings.
I'll probably do that after I find some good paint since I don't want to mess her up  ^^;
