If you are making your own beard, moustache, sideburns, eyebrows or similar from Wool Crepe for the theatre, then you can also do this in advance at home and stick the result on to a ceramic head using Mastix Extra. Spray the Wool Crepe hairpiece with a strong fixative plastic spray and cut it into style while on the head. Note: using hairspray or plastic spray on the Wool Crepe will make it inflammable.
When you are going to be using the Wool Crepe hairpiece, you soak it gently loose from the head with alcohol and place it in tissues in a sturdy box. Now it is ready to take away for use.

Please note: in the following text you can also read 'ceramic head' instead of 'skin', depending on what you choose.

WOLCRÊPE = Wool Crepe
MASTIX EXTRA = Mastix Extra
PREPARATION

Before starting, you ensure your hands and nails are well cleaned. File your nails if necessary, so that there are no snags. By doing this you prevent damages on the face and risk of infection.

Always work with clean materials.

Get the subject to put on any clothes beforehand that have to be put on over the head. Protect your models clothing with a hairdressing cape or a towel.

PROCEDURE

Grimas Wolcrêpe is a woven strand of pieces of sheep's wool that you can use to make single-use beards, moustaches, eyebrows and sideburns. Wool Crepe is also used for concealing the edges of a fake beard and for creating a stubbly beard.

You make the Wool Crepe beard as follows:
Pull a braid of about 50 cm wool crepe loose from the strings around which it has been wound.

If you feel resistance, you cut the strings loose so that you can continue.
