Overhead whiskers own hands
Overhead mustache is a rather funny way to change the appearance. Such an accessory can be a detail of a carnival costume or used "solo". With their help you can play a friend or change the image in an instant, try on a new image. Or maybe you want to become unrecognizable? In any case, you can not do without a false mustache!
Of course, you can buy an overhead mustache. But what if you do not have a store with similar goods in your city, or is it there, but there is not exactly the model you need from the presented assortment? In this case, the overhead whiskers can be made independently.
How to make an overhead mustache?
There is a special way of making false whiskers - tambouring. Its essence is this: the hairs, which serve as raw materials for making the props, should be assembled into a bundle, and then neatly arranged in length. For this method you need a special tool - card. It is a flat brush, which is attached to the surface of the table with a clamp. Hair must be combed, spread out on a card and fixed using the second same brush.
- The basis of future mustaches is a thin tulle. On it it is necessary to indicate what form the finished product will be. After this, the hand hook (in the same position as the pen for writing) is taken into the hand. His beard should be pointed upward. With its help, it is necessary to pull out of the brush-carda along a small bundle of bristles and bend them twice (the loop will be obtained). It is fixed with the second hand.
- Now you need to use a hook to stretch your hair loop through our tulle. To do this, the hook should engage several bristles that extend into a loop held by the other hand. When this action is performed, the resulting loop should be tightened well.
- When an overhead mustache is manufactured by the method of tumbling, it is implied that a double knot will be used. Such fastening provides the finished product with high strength and excellent quality. To tie it, you need to repeat this action after pulling the bristles into a loop and tighten it again. Thus, it is necessary to fill the entire base-form from the tulle.
Of course, this occupation is difficult to call easy. It will take quite some time, as well as scrupulousness and slowness in the work. But the result will be amazing. The whiskers made using this method will not differ in any way from the whiskers of "natural origin". If necessary, the finished mustache can be cut or painted in any color. This method is good in the case if you buy an overhead mustache, identical to natural, it is impossible.
If, for your invention, less believable whiskers are used, they can be made from colored cardboard or painted on yourself later. Wire, fur, felt - all this can serve as an excellent raw material for making funny overhead whiskers.
And if you attach a stick to the artificial mustache, approximately the way it is attached to the pince-nez, you can get an original and funny accessory for a photo session. Moreover, their use today is extremely popular.
