Morezmore OOAK Doll #29
Scale: 1/6, Size: 11.5″ (29 cm)
Part 8: Dress

Tools and materials:
silk gauze
– Paverpol fabric hardener
mini scissors
disposable brushes
– lace
Fabritac glue
– needle and thread
flat mop brush

I am trying to figure out the dress. I used wet paper towels to help me decide on the style of the dress and the size of the pieces of silk I need to cut. Here she is – in wet paper towels.

I read somewhere that scissors can be sharpened by cutting aluminum foil. Confirming – yes, this idea works great.

Decided to try Paverpol. On the photo – silk, Paverpol (clear), water, stirring stick, brash.

Silk out of Paverpol and on the next photo – squeezed the excess.

Here is what it looks like.

I decided that it will work, but the silk is too fine to use Paverpol full strength. Decided to dilute Paverpol with water 1:1
Also – change of mind regarding the style and bigger piece of silk.
Gathered silk on the thread for the skirt.

Style with wet brush. More smaller pieces of silk smoothed directly on the body. Paverpol works like glue, dries clear.
Diluted 1:1 Paverpol is much better for my purposes. Still the silk dried very stiff. I will try 1 part of paverpol with 2 parts of water next time.
